Pokémon Legends Arceus guide: Complete request list

Figure out which requests you’re missing with our handy list

Pokémon Legends: Arceus has tons of extra content, including side quests that the game refers to as requests. There are 94 requests in the game, and some of them expand on the story of the residents of Jubilife Village. Our Pokémon Legends: Arceus request guide shows you all the requests, how to complete them, and what rewards they give.


How to unlock more requests

Most requests open up as you complete the main story in Pokémon Legends: Arceus, and they’re indicated by a dark blue quest marker with a white circle inside. The further you get in the story, the more requests will unlock.

However, some requests have their own side stories, featuring the various residents of Jubilife Village. They won’t show up until you complete the previous request. One example of this is request #76, “Mushroom Hunting with Swinub,” which won’t appear until you complete the NPC Morel’s earlier requests.

Some other requests, specifically the ones that appear on the blackboard in Galaxy Hall, will not appear until you catch the featured Pokémon. An example of this is request #21, “Back-Alley Mr. Mime,” which isn’t available until you catch a Mr. Mime.

We’ve listed all Pokémon Legends: Arceus requests below, so you can figure out what you’re missing and why. Keep in mind that there are some requests that only require you to show an NPC a Pokémon, while others require you to give the NPC a Pokémon, meaning you won’t get that Pokémon back.

Update (Feb. 28): We’ve updated the table with requests from the Daybreak update, with help from Serebii.net.
