How to Farm Pokeball Materials in Pokemon Legends Arceus
In Pokemon Legends Arceus, farming materials for Pokeballs can take a long time. But if you know exactly where you can find the materials, this process becomes much faster. In this guide, I’ll give you the tips you need to effectively farm all Pokeball materials in Pokemon Legends Arceus.
Apricorns are a staple in crafting Pokeballs, with every Pokeball recipe requiring an Apricorn. Fortunately, apricorns are quite plentiful and easy to find. Just look for trees with brown fruits: these are the Apricorns. When you find one, you can throw one of your Pokémon to harvest it.
To make harvesting apricorns a little faster, I suggest using Braviary. This will help you travel fast and avoid unnecessary Pokémon battles. You can start at one end of the map and go through all the tree areas. If you’re in an area with many Apricorn Trees close together, climb Wyrdeer instead of Braviary. Once you’ve harvested all the trees, you can return to town and then return to the area. This will cause all the trees you harvested to reappear along with their apricorns and berries.
You can harvest Apricorns in any area of Arceus, but Obsidian Fields are one of the best areas. What makes the Obsidian Fields so great is that the landscape is easier to traverse than most other regions. It’s also the first area you’re introduced to, so all Pokemon here will be low level if you need to fight or escape anything. Also, the Heartwood and Grandtree Arena areas have a lot of trees close to each other, so harvesting them takes little time.
If you have a lot of money, it might be worth it to just buy the apricorns instead of growing them. You can buy apricorns for 40 Pokemon dollars each. The vendor selling them is Anvin, which can be found in Jubilife City, next to a crafting station at Craftworks across from Galaxy Hall.
Normal, Black, and Sky Tumblestone
Tumblestone is the next item you’ll need to craft Pokeballs when you first start the game. Creating a Pokeball or Great Ball requires one Tumblestone, but an Ultra Ball requires two. You can get Tumblestone by having your Pokemon destroy those orange mineral deposits you can find on the map. Tumblestone mineral deposits are quite common and you can find them near cliffs, hills, caves, and rivers. You can buy Tumblestone from Anvin for 60 Pokemon dollars.
Black Tumblestone is used to craft the Heavy Ball, Lead Ball, and Gigaton Ball. The Gigaton Ball requires two Black Tumblestones, while the other two only require one. Black Tumblestone only comes from Black Tumblestone deposits. These are rarer than orange Tumblestone deposits and are found more often in areas you unlock later in the game. Black Tumblestone deposits can also be found on hills, near cliffs, or in caves. You can buy Black Tumblestone for 80 Pokemon dollars.
Sky Tumblestone is used to craft the Feather Ball, Wing Ball, and Throwing Ball. The Jet Ball requires two Sky Tumblestones, while the other two only require one. Sky Tumblestone is only found on the tops of mountains and hills, and is more common at higher elevations. Sky Tumblestone only comes from blue Tumblestone deposits. You can buy Sky Tumblestone for 100 Pokemon dollars.
When you’ve found a Tumblestone deposit, you need to throw a Pokémon at it to harvest it. There are many mountainous regions that have Tumblestone deposits, so the best way to get there is by using Wyrdeer and Braviary.
One of the best areas to mine various Tumblestone deposits is the Obsidian Fields. There are plenty of Tumblestone, Black Tumblestone, and Sky Tumblestone deposits around the mountains that border the map. To farm the Tumblestone deposits, you’ll want to head to the Fieldlands camp and then head to the Floaro Gardens area. Climb to the top of the mountains just north of Lake Verity and right next to the name Floaro Gardens on the map. Once you’re there, just go down the mountain range and you’ll find plenty of Tumblestone along the way. There is a particularly large amount of Tumblestone on top of the mountains surrounding Lake Verity.
When you reach the end of the mountain range, which is just below Verity Lake, head down the mountain. You want to do this because the mountainside below also has a lot of Tumblestone. Head slightly towards Sandgem Flats, but stay next to the side of the mountain, then head back north towards Aspiration Hill. As long as you hug the side of the mountain, you’ll find plenty of Tumblestone.
A little after crossing the river, you can return to Jubilife to reset all Tumblestone deposits, then return to the Obsidian Fields. I have the route marked with a red line on the map below.
pieces of iron
Iron Pieces are also essential for creating strong Pokeballs. The Big Ball, Lead Ball, and Wing Ball require a piece of iron to craft. The Ultra Ball, Gigaton Ball, and Jet Ball require crafting two pieces of iron. There are several ways to get pieces of iron. First of all, it is possible to get them from the Tumblestone, Black Tumblestone or Sky Tumblestone deposits. The chance of getting them is not 100% but you can get a lot of them this way.
The second way to get Iron Chunks is to find them on the ground. Iron Chunks are usually found on top of mountains like Sky Tumblestone and are a little harder to see. They look like pieces of silver iron on the floor. The last way to get Iron Chunks is to buy them for 200 Pokemon dollars from Anvin.
You can farm Iron Chunks with the route I explained above for Tumblestone. The Obsidian Fields mountains contain a lot of Iron Chunks. Also, since there are a lot of Tumblestone deposits, you will also get a lot of Iron Chunks from them.
