Pokemon Legends: Arceus Ultimate Wurmple Guide

The region of the Pokemon universe in which this game is set, Hisui, will be renamed the Sinnoh region later. To complete Hisui’s first Pokédex, which is used to learn about Pokémon, the player must catch them all in this region.

The player will be assigned to the Galaxy Expedition Team’s Jubilife Village’s Survey Corps (known as the Galaxy Team), which studies the local Pokemon.

In this guide, we will learn everything you need to know about Wurmple!


Wurmple, the 18th Pokemon in the Hisuian Pokedex, is a Bug-type Worm Pokemon with a small, red, and cream-colored body that looks like that of a caterpillar’s, a pair of large yellow eyes with black pupils, a red topside with small spikes running down its back, a sharp yellow stinger on its forehead and two more on its rear, a tall spike on top of its head, a cream-colored face that goes to its underside, and five pairs of white, stubby, limbs.

According to its Pokedex entry in the game, nobody can tell what form Wurmple will take when it evolves, and why it evolves into two forms is still unknown. Also, Wurmple likes sap and can be seen a lot in the wild.

Basic Information

Wurmple is a Bug-type Pokemon which means it has a weakness to Fire-type, Flying-type, and Rock-type moves (super effective) and resistance to Fighting-type, Grass-type, and Ground-type moves (not very effective).

Wurmple’s base stats are 45 HP, 45 Attack, 35 Defense, 20 Special Attack, 30 Special Defense, and 20 Speed for a total of 195.

Wurmple will evolve into either of the two Pokemon: a Silcoon when it reaches Level 7, which will then evolve into a Beautifly when it reaches Level 10, or a Cascoon when it reaches Level 7, which will then evolve into a Dustox when it reaches Level 10.

Wurmple prefers Springy Mushrooms, Dazzling Honey, Hearty Grains, and Plump Beans if the player wants to try to lure it with food before catching it. 

When a Wurmple is beaten or caught, the player is rewarded with an Apricorn and a Spoiled Apricorn.


Wurmple can only be found in the following location:

Obsidian Fieldlands: in The Heartwood, Horseshoe Plains, and the Floaro Gardens.

The Wurmple can be found in this location at all times of the day and in every weather condition.

Aside from that, the player can find Wurmple in Massive Mass Outbreaks in the Obsidian Fieldlands.

Research Tasks

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

MultiplierResearch TaskObjectives
x2Number caught1/3/6/12/25
Number of light specimens you have caught1/2/3/4/5
Number you have caught without being spotted1/2/4/6/10
Times you have seen it use Poison Sting1/3/6/12/25
Number you’ve evolved1/2/3

Aside from objectives with a multiplier of x2, which boosts two Research Levels for completing one, the player must complete an objective for a specific Research Task to raise a Wurmple’s Research Level by one. To complete Wurmple’s entry in the Pokedex, the player must reach Research Level 10.

To quickly complete Wurmple’s Pokedex entry, the player can catch six Wurmples, which will tick the first, second, and third objective of the “number caught” Research Task to add six Research Levels thanks to the x2 multiplier and make sure that all of them are caught without the player being spotted, which ticks the first, second, third, and fourth objective of the “number you’ve caught without being spotted” Research task to add four more Research Levels, to reach Research Level 10.


Wurmple can only learn and master new moves by leveling up:

Relevant Request

Wurmpleis involved in Request 1, the very first request in the game, called “Wurmple Can Evolve”

After completing Mission 3 of the main storyline, “The Basics of Crafting,” the player can unlock this request.

To start this request, head to the Galaxy Hall, where the player can find a member of the Security Corps named Beauregard, who is guarding the entrance of the Galaxy Hall. Talk to Beauregard, and he will ask if the player has heard of the Pokemon called Wurmple. Select any of the responses on the prompt, and Beauregard will say that he was talking with Professor Laventon, who told him that a Pokemon changes its appearance and becomes stronger, called evolution, after it gains enough experience through battling. Beauregard will continue that because of that information; he has decided to raise Wurmple and have it evolve. So, he will ask the player to catch a Wurmple and give it to him. After that, the “Wurmple Can Evolve” Request has now started!

To complete this request, the player must catch a Wurmple and give it to Beauregard. As mentioned above, the player can find a Wurmple near the Fieldlands Camp in the Horseshoe Plains in the Obsidian Fieldlands.

Alternatively, if the player has already caught a Wurmple and is willing to give it away, they can just talk to Beauregard immediately to finish the request. It does not matter if Beauregard is in the player’s party or in the Pastures.

After catching a Wurmple, head back to Beauregard outside of the Galaxy Hall, talk to him, select the Wurmple that you are willing to give him, and select “Yes” on the prompt when asked if the player is sure to give up this Pokemon. Beauregard will immediately name his Wurmple, which the player can help decide by selecting Beauregard’s choices on the prompt.

After that, Beauregard will reward the player with three Dazzling Honey for your efforts, and the “Wurmple Can Evolve” Request is now completed!

Now that the player has a Wurmple and is familiar with it, the player can attempt to use it to perform requests, missions, or Arceus’ assignment for the player—to catch ’em all!
