Where to Find an Alpha Lumineon 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 improves combat capabilities that are found all over the Hisui region. These Pokemon are called Alpha Pokemon

This guide will teach you where to find an Alpha Lumineon 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 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 battling by sneaking around the Alpha Pokemon in the tall grass or 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 Lumineon.

Alpha Lumineon in Pokemon Legends: Arceus

Lumineon is a Water type Neon Pokemon with a dark blue and light blue body that looks like that of a fish, a pair of pink eyes with black pupils, a small mouth, two pairs of large, wavy pectoral fins that look like butterfly wings with light blue markings on the edges, a light blue vertical stripe running around its body, a pair of light blue pelvic fins, and a long tail with a pink marking on its tip.

According to its Pokedex entry in the game, Lumineon uses its fins that emit light to hunt its prey. Additionally, the view of Lumineon schooling near the ocean’s surface at night looks breathtaking, and it is said that it looks like they are shining stars.


An Alpha Lumineon can be found southwest of Seagrass Haven (north of Veilstone Cape or southwest of Firespit Island) in the Cobalt Coastlands and in the area mentioned at all times of the day and in every weather condition. The Alpha Lumineon found in this location is a Level 60 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 Lumineon’s preferred foods are Hearty Grains and Plump Beans.

Suppose you plan on battling a Lumineon first before catching it. In that case, it is worth noting that, as mentioned, Lumineon is a Water-type Pokemon, which means it has a weakness to Electric-type and Grass-type moves (super effective) and resistance to Fire-type, Ice-type, Steel-type, and Water-type moves (not very effective).

Aside from the Alpha Lumineon found in the Cobalt Coastlands, the regular, non-alpha Lumineon can also be located in other parts of the Cobalt Coastlands (northwest of Seagrass Haven) and can be found here at all times of the day and in every weather condition. Aside from that, Lumineon can also be found inside Massive Mass Outbreaks in the Cobalt Coastlands.

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