Pokémon Legends: Arceus doesn’t offer the same amount of puzzles as a more traditional Pokémon game — there’re no sliding rocks to worry about here. But there is some light puzzle solving required toward the end of the game in Snowpoint Temple, found in the Alabaster Iceland.

During “The Slumber Lord of the Tundra” mission, you’ll need to chase down Sabi so she’ll allow you to ride the Hisuian Braviary. Once you chase her around the Tundra for a bit, she’ll head into Snowpoint Temple, which is devoted to Regice, Registeel, Regirock, and Regigigas.

Inside Snowpoint Temple, you’ll need to follow a collection of statues with elements on their chest and determine the correct order for a code. In this Pokémon Legends: Arceus Snowpoint Temple guide, we’ll help you solve the Snowpoint Temple puzzle and give you the solution so you can proceed through the story.

Snowpoint Temple puzzle 1

The first puzzle is simple and primarily exists to teach you how to find the solution in the following rooms.

You’ll find yourself in a large room, and at the end is a large door that’s locked. To unlock the door, you’ll need to input a special code: the words ice, rock, and steel in a specific order.

To find the code, inspect the three statues around the room. Starting with the one that doesn’t have any other statues pointing to it, inspect it and write down or memorize the symbol on its chest. Then follow the statue’s gaze (it also has an arrow pointing from it, to make it super easy) to the next statue, and write down its code. Finally, follow the second statue to the third and write down its code.

Inspect the door and input the code: Rock > Steel > Ice.

The door will open and you can move forward.

Snowpoint Temple puzzle 2

You’ll be following the same rules for the second puzzle. The only major difference is that some of the statues will look through windows in the walls to try and trick you.

Follow the statues in the correct order, and you’ll get the code: Ice > Rock > Steel > Rock > Ice.

Snowpoint Temple puzzle 3

The final room is the biggest and the trickiest. You won’t start with the first statue you see. Instead, find the one quarantined off in its own little room. Once you find your starting statue, follow the arrows one more time.

Once you reach the door, you should have your final code: Steel > Ice > Rock > Ice > Steel > Rock.

After you open the final door, you can head up the stairs to meet with Sabi and continue the main story quest.
