How to Catch All Genie Pokémon in Legends: Arceus
Genie Pokémon are some of the rarest and most powerful Pokémon in existence. But that’s just one of the reasons why catching them can be difficult. Their unique properties and aggressive behavior make them elusive and dangerous.
In Pokémon Legends: Arceus especially, the Forces of Nature are way more dangerous than any other Pokémon in the game.
Finding them is already quite a chore. Besides, not only getting close to them is difficult, but it can often result in being knocked out, and they might be able to destroy your Pokémon once you finally start the fight.
Fortunately, after some research and countless failed attempts, we have discovered where to find them and how to get close enough to throw a Poké Ball. So if you are having trouble with the Forces of Nature, don’t worry; here’s how to catch all Geenie Pokémon in Legends: Arceus.
How to Find and Catch All Forces of Nature
Honestly, catching these Pokémon can be considered too hard for a game meant for 7 years old kids, but I guess the developers were thinking of their older fans when they decided to add such a challenge.
You first must complete the main storyline to start the mission called The Deified Pokémon. Cogita will meet you at the Galaxy Hall and tell you about the three Pokémon that you need to complete your Pokédex. Here’s how to catch each one.
Tornadus is a Legendary flying Pokémon that can only be found in Alabasta Icelands when the weather is both rainy and windy.
Once the weather is how you need it, fly to Bonechill wastes, and you will see Tornadus flying around near the Alpha Glalie.
It’s always a good idea to clear up the area before engaging the most troubling Pokémon. Facing a legendary is hard on its own; you don’t need an alpha on top of that to make things worse.
Tornadus will not be easy to approach. It will fly away from you and throw little hurricanes at you, making it really hard for you to approach. Unfortunately, at this point, there aren’t many tricks. You just have to get as close as possible to start a fight.
It might be a good idea to try to stun Tornadus by hitting it with Poké Balls so you can finally start a fight. Once the battle has begun, try bringing its HP to yellow at least and throw an Ultra Ball. That should be enough.
Be aware that legendary Pokémon are quite strong, so it helps to bring an overpowered Pokémon with you. You might want to also check our Poké Ball guide if you need any help understanding the different kinds of Poké Ball and how to craft them for this endeavor.
Thundorus is an Electric and Flying type Pokémon. In order to find it, go to Sand’s Reach in Cobalt Coastlands when it’s stormy.
Rest on the campsite until you get the needed weather. Once it’s stormy and you get to Sand’s Reach, Thundorus will be roaming around just north of it, in the sea. It’ll be surrounded by Gyarados, including an Alpha one, so much the same as before, clear the area before approaching the legendary Pokémon.
You will need to be riding Basculegion the entire time, so things might be a bit tricky this time. Thundorus will throw the same gales of wind as Tornadus, so you should know what to expect.
The same tactic works here, too, try and get as close as possible to Thundorus and throw Poké Balls at it once it attacks.
It’ll take you a little while before you stun it, but once you do, it’s just a matter of sending in a Pokémon as quickly as possible and trying to catch it.
Fortunately, Landorus is the easiest one to find and catch. Head over to Obsidian Fieldlands in any sort of weather. This is the only of the three that will appear no matter how the weather is. From there, go to the Ramanus Islands at the bottom of the map.
Defeat or catch the Alpha Infernape that is there and then go looking for Landorus. It’ll be roaming around between the trees.
The fight will follow the same structure as the others. It’ll attack you with wind and do its best to avoid you. So just get close and throw Poké Balls to stun it just like you did before.
Enamorus won’t be just roaming around for you to catch. There are some chores involved in finding this Pokémon. First, you must have the three genies. Then, you’ll need to rank up each of their research levels to 10.
Once they’re all level 10, you’ll need to pay Cognita a visit to the Ancient Retreat. After talking to her, she will reveal one more legend.
Go to Crimson Mirelands. Once you get there, head over to the Scarlet Bog, and you’ll find Enamorus flying about in any weather.
Just like before with the first three, there will be Alpha Pokémon and other types of Pokémon nearby. You should try clearing the area first.
This Pokémon won’t be easy to catch. In fact, it’s annoyingly hard. Its attacks are a lot harder to dodge due to the water surrounding you.
Try mounting Wyrdeer and doing your best to get as close as possible before unmounting to throw a Pokeball at it. That and an Ultra Ball are your best bets.
Forces of Nature are some of the most powerful Pokémon in the game, but they are Legendary creatures after all, so I guess it makes sense.
Catching them can be hard and frustrating. It is a lot of work and depends on special conditions that can be annoying sometimes, so just make sure you have a strong Pokémon and some Ultra Balls.
