Pokémon Legends Arceus: Progress #3: First 999 Research Task

Today I got my first 999 in a research task: Shadow Claw usage for Giratina.

I’ve now got 200 (24 to go) alpha species and 287 (36 to go) alpha forms; 78 shiny species and 89 shiny forms; 3 of my shinies are exclusively alpha, another I have in alpha and non-alpha.

62 of my entries are now perfected. I’m still on 35 paths of solitude completed. 19 of my species and 28 of my forms have a specimen maxed out.

If the lost and found record stats cap out easily, that will be my next post, else Giratina all 999ed, all alphas or perfect dex will be my next post.

Pokémon Legends: Arceus Progress #2: Max Research Points

Today, after 314:16 hours (pi hundred hours), I finally reached 99,999 research points. I have completed 100K’s worth of research tasks now out of 125.2K research points available, so I’m about 80% of the way through getting a perfect pokédex.

I have 190 species and 275 forms alpha; and 67 species and 75 forms shiny (legendary shinies are imported). 2 of my shinies are exclusively alpha, while another is caught both non-alpha and alpha.

54 out of 242 of my entries are perfect: all legendary/mythical. I’ve completed 35 of the paths of solitude and have 16 species and 24 forms with a specimen maxed out (level 100 and 10/10/10/10/10/10 effort levels).

The next post for this game will probably be either getting a perfect dex or collecting every alpha. See you then.

Pokémon Legends Arceus Progress #1: Pokédex & All Mission & Requests Completion

242 Entries Research Level 10

Yesterday, after nearly 140 hours played, I finally completed my Pokédex on Legends: Arceus and received the Shiny charm! About 3 days ago, I finally completed every request also, after a lot of grinding for the Path of Solitude. I did some other Paths of Solitude and I’m now up to 26 out of 242. As for Perfect entries on the Pokédex, I’m only at 7 out of 242, but I’ll probably increase that as I alpha and Shiny hunt more.

I have collected one of each non-alpha-and-non-shiny form available in the game and transferred over an extra Alolan Vulpix so I could have both Alolan Vulpix and Alolan Ninetales. You only get one out of Alolan Vulpix or Alolan Ninetales, and only one each of every Legendary and Mythical Pokémon, which means I’m missing 26 extra legendary and mythical formes. It’s hard to see how I will get every Arceus form on the game, but the rest don’t seem too difficult other than Enamorus, which is currently Legends: Arceus exclusive.

For alphas, I have 197 out of 322 forms. For Shinies, I have 18 out of 690 (with 2 unavailable shinies transferred in) so far. I have about 7 Level 100 Pokémon, 2 of which have maxed out effort levels: Arceus and Darkrai. It will be interesting to see these numbers go up over time if I continue to play this game.

I have also 65, 270 Research points out of a possible 99, 999. I expect the next update will be when I reach this maximum.
