Where to Find an Alpha Gabite in Pokemon Legends: Arceus

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 (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.

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, 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 Gabite in Pokemon Legends: Arceus!

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 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 knocked to the ground for a short while.

The player can 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 battling 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 random, we will discuss fixed Alpha Pokemon, specifically an Alpha Gabite.

Alpha Gabite

Gabite is a Dragon and Ground-type Cave Pokemon with a primarily blue body that looks like that of a dragon’s, a pair of eyes with gold irises and black sclerae and pupils, a wide mouth with two teeth protruding out, a light blue underside, a red lower jaw, front side of its neck, chest, and abdomen, a pair of appendages with a blue stripe that looks like plane engines on the top sides of its head, a fin on both of its arms, on its back, and on its tail, a pair of legs with sharp claws on both of its feet and a pair of arms also with claws both of its wrists. According to its Pokedex entry in the game, Gabite is usually violent but becomes docile when given a glass bead it has been eyeing.

An Alpha Gabite can be found slightly west of Clamberclaw Cliffs (northwest of Primeval Grotto or south of Celestica Ruins) in the Coronet Highlands, and the area is mentioned at all times of the day and in every weather condition. The Alpha Gabite found in this location is a Level 56 Pokemon.

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 Gabite’s preferred foods are Dazzling Honey, Hearty Grains, and Plump Beans.

Suppose you plan on battling a Gabite first before catching it. In that case, it is worth noting that, as mentioned, Gabite is a Dragon and Ground-type Pokemon, meaning it is weak (super effective) to Dragon-type, Fairy-type, and especially Ice-type moves, resistant (not very effective) to Fire-type, Poison-type, and Rock-type moves, and immune (no effect) to Electric-type moves.

Aside from the Alpha Gabite that can be found in the Coronet Highlands, the regular, non-alpha

Gabite can also be found in the Alabaster Icelands (south of Avalanche Slopes) at all times of the day and in every weather condition. Aside from that, Gabite can also be found in Massive Mass Outbreaks in the Coronet Highlands.

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