Although Pokémon has been around for more than two decades, the franchise recently saw the launch of a brand-new title – Pokémon Legends: Arceus. This game promises players an exciting journey of exploration, discovery and collection of some of the most iconic Pokémon to date. With the release of this new installment, comes several new and innovative ways to evolve Pokémon – something that longtime fans would be sure to appreciate.
New Evolution Methods
Arceus brings with it a host of new evolution methods which are sure to add further excitement and depth to gameplay. Players now have the ability to use temporal stones in order to evolve certain Pokémon, essentially allowing them access to some previously unavailable evolutions. Additionally, Arceus grants players the ability to give certain Pokémon a special type change which can completely alter their moveset, stats and abilities. Finally, Arceus introduces Synch_Evolutions which give players access to even more powerful evolutions.
One major change brought about by Arceus is temporal stones, which allow players access to some previously unavailable evolutions. For example, some Gen 4 starters (such as Turtwig) are not available in other installments before Arceus. However, when combined with a temporal stone, these Pokemon can now gain access to certain forms they would otherwise not be able to attain.
In addition, temporal stones also grant players access to legendary evolutions such as Rayquaza-Mega. By combining Rayquaza with a temporal stone such as Zekromite or Kyogrite (depending on how you want your Rayquaza’s moveset), you can unlock these rare forms.
