If you’re raising a new Pokémon or just behind in levels, you’ll want to farm Blissey and Chansey for EXP in Pokémon Legends: Arceus. Our Pokémon Legends: Arceus EXP farming guide will show where to find Alpha Chansey and Blissey and how to gain EXP quickly.

How to gain EXP quickly in Pokémon Legends: Arceus

The best way to farm EXP is to hunt down Chansey and Blissey, namely Alpha Chansey and Blissey. Not only do they give tons of EXP, but they also drop additional Exp. Candy.

Alpha Pokémon are powerful, so you should have strong Pokémon ready to take them down. They are very vulnerable to fighting-type moves, so using those are your best bet.

To quickly level up your party and gain Exp. Candy, do the following:

  1. Head to either the Alpha Chansey or Alpha Blissey location (marked below).
  2. Toss out your Pokémon to battle it (even better if you can catch it unaware using stealth).
  3. Battle and defeat the Chansey or Blissey.
  4. Claim the EXP and EXP Candy.
  5. Head back to Jubilife City.
  6. Go back to the Alpha Chansey or Blissey spawn area to repeat the process.

Alpha Chansey and Blissey locations

There is one Alpha Chansey and one Alpha Blissey, both of which spawn guaranteed at set locations.
