Poke Balls are arguably the most important item in every Pokemon game because they capture and store Pokemon. Maybe even so in Pokemon Legends: Arceus, as the game’s main goal, is to capture every Pokemon in Hisui Region. In this iteration, however, we are introduced to Poke Balls as something that has just been invented as this game is set way before the modern Pokemon games.

How to Craft Poke Balls in Pokemon Legends Arceus

Also introduced in Pokemon Legends: Arceus is a new mechanic called Crafting. With Crafting, you can craft items instead of buying them. With Crafting, you can create various items like Poke Balls, healing items, and more using crafting ingredients found all over the Hisui region. In this guide, you will learn how to craft Poke Balls.

Unlock Crafting

It is worth mentioning that you can not craft right from the start of the game. However, you do unlock the function early on. After completing the Galaxy Team’s Entry Trial, players can start the Basics of Crafting mission, which is the game’s third mission. Captain Cyllene will also give you the recipe to craft Poke Balls after completing the Galaxy Team’s Entry Trial.

For the Basics of Crafting mission, Akari or Rei will teach you how to craft items by introducing you to the Craftworks, where there will be a Workbench to create items. You can find a Workbench in the Craftworks in Jubilife Village or at the campsite.

After that, you will have another mission to work on Research Tasks. Just keep on trying to finish this mission. You will get to a part where Akari or Rei will instruct you to catch a Buizel, which you would have to battle first before you can catch it, and Akari or Rei will teach you that you will need to see a Pokemon perform a specific move-in battle to complete some research task. Finish these tasks, and Akari or Rei will reward you with a Crafting Kit for meeting the challenges so far.

So, what’s the difference between a Workbench in the Craftworks or at the campsite and the Crafting Kit? The main difference is that with the workbench, you can craft items using the items you have in your satchel and the items you have kept in storage. Again, you can only access the workbench in the Craftworks and the campsite. On the other hand, with the Crafting Kit, aside from being able to use it anywhere, you can only craft using only the items you have in your satchel.

Crafting Poke Balls

As mentioned above, the recipe for crafting Poke Balls will be given to you after the Galaxy Team’s Entry Trial. You need to craft one Poke Ball, one Apricorn, and one Tumblestone.

These crafting materials can be purchased, but, fortunately, they can just be found all around the overworld, so you do not have to spend a single Pokemon dollar. However, if you do not have time to farm for items, the option to purchase them is still there.

As stated previously, to obtain some Apricorn, you can find Apricorn trees all over the Hisui region but specifically in these zones: Obsidian Fieldlands, Alabaster Icelands, Cobalt Coastlands, Coronet Highlands, and Crimson Mirelands. There are three Apricorn trees northwest of Horseshoe Plains in Obsidian Fieldlands, and you can obtain at least fifteen Apricorns from this zone alone. To get Apricorn from Apricorn trees, you would need the help of your Pokemon. To do this, aim and throw one of your Pokemon to a tree then your Pokemon will come out and strike the tree to harvest the Apricorn. The selected Pokemon will also gain experience in helping out. 

After catching or defeating Pokemon, Apricorn can also be obtained, specifically Starly, Staravia, Staraptor, and Kricketot.

Additionally, you can pay Colza 500 Pokemon Dollars to plant Apricorn harvests at the Farm in Jubilife Village to get plenty of Apricorns.

Alternatively, it is possible to purchase Apricorn for 40 Pokemon Dollars in the Craftworks by talking to Anvin.

To obtain some Tumblestone, you need to find rust-colored stones all over the Hisui region. To get Tumblestones from these rocks, you would also need the help of one of your Pokemon. You can also do this by throwing out one of your Pokemon, and your Pokemon will come out to strike the rocks and harvest the Tumblestone! You can obtain at least ten Tumblestones in the Horseshoe Plains at Obsidian Fieldlands alone.

Tumblestones can also be obtained after catching or defeating Pokemon, specifically Geodude, Graveler, Machop, Machoke, Golem, and Magikarp.

Alternatively, you can also purchase Tumblestone from Anvin in the Craftworks for 60 Pokemon Dollars.

Now that you know how to craft Poke Balls in Pokemon Legends: Arceus, start farming for some Apricorn and Tumblestone, craft as many Poke Balls as you want, and continue the mission that Arceus has bestowed upon you to go and catch them all!
