Pokemon Legends: Arceus Ultimate Cherrim Guide

The player will be a part of the Galaxy Expedition Team, sometimes called the Galaxy Team, as a significant member of the Survey Corps in Pokemon Legends: Arceus to discover more about the Pokemon in the Hisui region.

One of the game’s primary objectives is for the player to capture every kind of Pokemon in the region to finish the Hisui Pokedex. To make matters more serious, the all-powerful Arceus requests the player to meet every Pokemon in the area. As a result, the player must be acquainted with every Pokemon found in the Hisui region.

This guide will discuss everything you need about Cherrim in Pokemon Legends: Arceus!


Cherrim, the 67th Pokemon in the Hisuian Pokedex, is a grass-type blossom Pokemon with two forms that depend on the weather: overcast and sunshine.

Cherrim’s Sunshine Form, which is the form it takes when there is strong sunlight, has a yellow body, a round, yellow head, a pair of small, dark pink eyes, a small mouth, a pair of orbs that look like cherry hair ornaments on top of its head, pink petals that look similar to cherry blossoms around its head that radiate from the yellow sphere on the back of its head, a triangular patch of green on its neck, another pink petal on its chest, a pair of pink, stubby arms, and a pair of yellow, stubby legs.

According to its Pokedex entry in the game, Cherrim’s Sunshine form is cheerfully active during sunny days. Still, it will immediately close its petals and become immobile once the sun is hidden.

Cherrim’s Overcast Form, which is the form it takes in normal weather conditions, has a deep pink body, two purple petals that cover its body, a couple of leaves and a short purple stem on top of the petals, a pair of short, stubby legs, and a pair of black eyes with white pupils that are near its legs.

According to its Pokedex entry in the game, Cherrim in Overcast form does not move at all except for a few quivers. Also, it says that a bunch of Pokemon can be found around it because they are drawn to the scent of Cherrim’s folded petals.

Basic Information

Cherrim is a Grass-type Pokemon, which means it has a weakness to the Bug-type, Fire-type, Flying-type, Ice-type, and Poison-type moves (super effective) and resistance to Electric-type, Grass-type, Ground-type, and Water-type moves (not very effective).

Cherrim’s base stats are 70 HP, 60 Attack, 70 Defense, 87 Special Attack, 78 Special Defense, and 85 Speed, for a total of 450.

Cherrim evolved from a Cherubi when it reached Level 25.

Cherrim likes Springy Mushrooms, Dazzling Honey, and Crunchy Salts, which can be used as bait before catching, battling, or feeding Cherrim.

When a Cherrim is defeated or captured in the wild, it drops a King’s Leaf and a Lum Berry, which the player can use.


Although quite rare, the player can find Cherrim in shaking trees in the following areas in Pokemon Legends: Arceus:

Shaking trees in the Obsidian Fieldlands: southwest corner of The Heartwood.

Shaking trees in the Crimson Mirelands: west and southwest of Gapejaw Bog.

Shaking trees in the Coronet Highlands: Lonely Spring, Primeval Grotto, and northeast of Fabled Spring.

Cherrim can be found at all times of day and in all weather conditions in the aforementioned locations.

Research Tasks

The following are the Research Tasks in Cherrim’s Pokedex entry:

MultiplierResearch TaskObjectives
x2Number caught1/2/4/10/15
Number caught during daylight hours1/2/4/6/10
Number defeated1/2/3/4/5
x2Times you have seen it use Petal Dance1/3/8/20/40
Times you have seen it use an agile style move1/2/4/10/15
x2Number you have seen leap out of trees1/2/4/10/15

When a Pokemon reaches Research Level 10, its entry into the Pokedex is completed. Whenever one of the objectives of a Research Task is fulfilled, a Pokedex entry’s Research Level rises by one level.  After fulfilling a Research Task with a multiplier of x2, the Pokedex entry receives two Research Levels instead of only one. Furthermore, for completing Research Tasks and Pokedex entries, the player earns Research Points, which will raise the Star Rank in the Galaxy Team if the player earns enough.

To quickly complete Cherrim’s Pokedex entry, the player can catch two Cherrims from shaking trees during the daylight hours (morning, midday, and evening). Doing these will tick the first and second objective of the “Number caught” Research Task to gain four Research Levels because of its x2 multiplier, tick the first and second objective of the “Number caught during daylight hours” Research Task to add two Research Levels, and tick the first and second objective of the “Number you have seen leap out of trees” Research Task to gain the four Research Levels needed, thanks to its x2 multiplier, to reach Research Level 10 ultimately.


To learn new moves, the player’s Cherrim will only be able to do that by leveling up. As the player’s Cherrim advances in level, it can learn and master the following moves:

Relevant Request

Cherrim is involved in Request 17, called the “To Bloom or Not to Bloom” Request.

To unlock this request, the player must first receive ‘The Frenzy of the Lord of the Woods’ mission, the seventh mission in the game where the player is tasked to quell the frenzied Noble Kleavor.

To start this request, head to the Farm in the western part of Jubilife Village, where the player will find Kichi, a member of the Agriculture Corps. Talk to Kichi, and he will tell the player that he was scouring The Heartwood in the Obsidian Fieldlands for crops when he saw a Pokemon called Cherrim that changed its physical appearance right before his own eyes.

He claims that Cherrim’s petals instantly closed up and resembled a tiny flower bud as the light began to fade in the evening, and at that moment, he believed he had just witnessed a Pokemon evolve.

Kichi claims that when he returned the following morning to check on the Cherrim, it was again in full bloom. He will then ponder whether it evolved or if the change was caused by something else and why it would bloom before closing back up. He will then ask the player to show Cherrim’s completed Pokedex entry.

The best place to look for Cherrim is from shaking trees in the Coronet Highlands, specifically around the Lonely Spring area. Cherrim is a rare Pokemon, so it might take the player a while to find one. If the player cannot find any more shaking trees, the player can reset the map by going to a Base Camp, returning to Jubilife Village, and then returning to the area.

Again, to quickly complete Cherrim’s Pokedex Entry, the player can catch two from shaking trees during the day.

Cherrim is a rare Pokemon and is quite hard to find; an alternative would be to evolve some Cherubi to a Cherrim, which will happen once the Cherubi reaches Level 25. Make sure to evolve the Cherubi during the day to count as “catching a Cherrim during the daylight hours.”

After evolving four Cherubi to Cherrim during the day, the Pokedex entry for Cherrim will reach Research Level 9. So, the player can just choose one of the Cherrim in battle and let it perform a move in Agile Style one time to reach Research Level 10.

After completing Cherrim’s Pokedex entry, return to Kichi, still found on the western end of the Farm on the village’s western side, and talk to him. Kichi will then read Cherrim’s Pokedex entry and discover that Cherrim changes form when the sun is hidden, and what he witnessed was not the Cherrim evolving but simply that change in action.

He’ll then say he understands why having Survey Corps members working on Pokemon research is beneficial. So he will say that he should return to his work because putting food on the table is just another way for him to repay the player and the other Survey Corps members. 

Finally, the “To Bloom or Not To Bloom” Request is completed, and the player will be rewarded with five Vivichokes for their efforts!

With all this information, Cherrim is now easier to find, catch, and use in battle in Pokemon Legends: Arceus. Cherrim can also be a great companion to the player’s party and can help the player take on missions, requests, and even the all-powerful Arceus’ task for the player to catch ’em all!
