Pokemon Legends: Arceus is set in olden times in the Pokemon world when it was rare to find harmony between people and Pokemon. Set in Hisui, modern-day Sinnoh, you will join the Galaxy Expedition Team (or just Galaxy Team for short) as a member of the Survey Corps stationed in Jubilife Village. You will be tasked to meet every Hisui Pokemon species to complete the region’s first-ever Pokédex.

Where to Find an Alpha Bibarel in Pokemon Legends: Arceus

In the game, there are Pokemon who appear larger than their regular counterparts with glowing red eyes, which means they are filled with Wild Might which increases all of their stats and reduces the damage they receive from status conditions, and increases combat capabilities that are found all over the Hisui region. These Pokemon are called Alpha Pokemon

In this guide, we will learn where to find an Alpha Bibarel!

Alpha Pokemon

The Alpha Pokemon will always be at a higher level than their regular counterparts. They will always be aggressive once they notice the player (except for Mantyke and Mantine) and will never run away (except for when the type of Alpha Pokemon appears during a certain time of day or if a Space-Time Distortion appears around them). Alpha Pokemon will roar and release a shockwave once they notice the player, and if the player is close enough, the player may get staggered and get knocked to the ground for a short while.

The player will be able to catch Alpha Pokemon, regardless of the Alpha Pokemon’s level, by battling with it and then eventually throwing a Poke Ball. The player, however, can catch Alpha Pokemon without fighting by sneaking around the Alpha Pokemon in the tall grass or by using stealth items and then throwing a Poke Ball; however, the player cannot do this if the player’s current obedience level is significantly lower than the Alpha Pokemon’s level.

Additionally, suppose the player has a hard time catching an Alpha Pokemon. In that case, the player can increase the catch rate of catching an Alpha Pokemon by raising the player’s Star Rank (the player’s Survey Corps rank), which can be done by completing Research Tasks and talking to Professor Laventon in any of the Base Camps.

Three types of Alpha Pokemon can be found in the game: fixed Alpha Pokemon that will always spawn and can be found in certain areas of the game and will always be at a fixed level; random Alpha Pokemon, which may only appear once the player has quelled the area’s frenzied Noble Pokemon, and Alpha Pokemon in Massive Mass Outbreaks which can appear as a second wave in the same location as the first wave. 

As the other two are completely random, we will discuss fixed Alpha Pokemon, specifically an Alpha Bibarel.

Alpha Bibarel

Bibarel is a Normal and Water-type Beaver Pokemon with a big body, brown fur, a tan circular marking on its chest, tufts of fur around its face, a dark brown snout, a small red nose, protruding teeth, two small forepaws with black hands, two larger and more rounded hind paws with black toes and tan paw pads, and a large and black flat tail with a tan marking. According to its Pokedex entry in the game, Bibarel’s fur is a fantastic material that can repel water and retain heat. Additionally, Bibarels create dams on rivers for them to live in.

Alpha Bibarel can be found south of Tidewater Dam on the shore northwest of The Heartwood in the Obsidian Fieldlands and can be found in this location at all times of the day and in every weather condition. The Alpha Bibarel that can be found in this location is Level 16.

It is recommended to sneak to the back of the Alpha Pokemon, using the tall grass or stealth items like Smoke Bombs, and throw the player’s Pokemon or Poke Ball on its back to catch it unawares, which assures that the player moves first in battle.

If you plan on distracting it with food before catching it, it is worth mentioning that Bibarel’s preferred foods are Springy Mushroom, Hearty Grains, and Plump Beans.

Suppose you plan on battling the Alpha Bibarel first before catching it. In that case, it is worth noting that Bibarel is a Normal and Water-type Pokemon which means it has a weakness to Electric-type, Fighting type, and Grass-type moves (super effective), a resistance to Fire-type, Ice-type, Steel-type, and Water-type moves (not very effective), and an immunity to Ghost-type moves (no effect).

Aside from the Alpha Bibarel that can be found in the Obsidian Fieldlands, the regular, non-alpha, Bibarel can be found in the Crimson Mirelands (around Gapejaw Bog, in Droning Meadow, and north of Ursa’s Ring), in the Cobalt Coastlands (north of the Spring Path), and the Alabaster Icelands (in the west and east of Avalugg’s Legacy). Bibarel can also be found here at all times of the day and in every weather condition. Aside from that, the player can find Bibarel in Massive Mass Outbreaks in the Obsidian Fieldlands and the Alabaster Icelands.

Now that the player has an Alpha Bibarel, the player can try to use the Alpha Bibarel to complete other requests, missions, or Arceus’ task for the player, which is to catch ’em all!
