Instead of battling in Pokemon Gyms and eventually being a Champion as in the other mainline Pokemon games, the player in Pokemon Legends: Arceus will become part of the Galaxy Expedition Team, also referred to as the Galaxy Team, as a key member of the Survey Corps to understand more about the Pokemon found in the Hisui region. One of the game’s primary goals for the player is to complete the Pokedex by capturing and acquiring knowledge about each species of Pokemon in the region.
This guide will discuss everything you need to know about Wyrdeer!
Wyrdeer, the 50th Pokemon in the Hisuian Pokedex, is a Normal and Psychic-type Big Horn Pokemon that has a gray and white body that looks like that of a deer, a pair of eyes with black pupils, thick, white eyebrows above its eyes, a brown nose, a pair of large, yellow antlers on the top of its head with a black orb on the base of each antler, white fur around its jaw that looks like a long beard, a white underside, a couple of white spots on its back, four legs with white fur on the lower part of its legs, two tufts of fur on the back of each leg, and black cloven hooves, and a white, round, bushy tail.
According to its Pokedex entry in the game, the black orbs on the base of its antlers shine when Wyrdeer is creating invisible barriers. Also, the fur shed from its beard can retain heat, making it a very useful material for winter clothes.
Wyrdeer is a Normal and Psychic-type Pokemon meaning it is weak (super effective) to Bug-type and Dark-type moves, resistant (not very effective) to Psychic-type moves, and immunity (no effect) to Ghost-type moves.
Wyrdeer’s base stats are 103 HP, 105 Attack, 72 Defense, 105 Special Attack, 75 Special Defense, and 65 Speed, for a total of 525.
Wyrdeer can be evolved from a Stantler by using Psyshield Bash in Agile Style 20 times.
Wyrdeer prefers Springy Mushrooms, Hearty Grains, and Plump Beans, which can be great for throwing toward it before attempting to catch, engaging in a battle, or simply feeding it.
When a Wyrdeer is defeated or captured, it will drop Vivichoke and a Pep-Up Plant, which are then given to the player.
The player can ride a Wyrdeer to run and jump across the map quickly. Wyrdeer is also one of the Rideable Pokemon in the game. To unlock Wyrdeer as a Rideable Pokemon, the player must be at least a Star Rank 1 and complete the “Frenzy of the Lord of the Woods” mission, the seventh mission in the game where the player must quell the frenzied Noble Kleavor.
After that mission, Warden Mai will give the player the Celestica Flute, allowing the player to summon and ride Wyrdeer. Press the + button to use the Celestica Flute and ride Wyrdeer, press the Y button to jump, and hold the B button to dash.
Unfortunately, the player cannot find a Wyrdeer anywhere in the wild. The only way to catch a Wyrdeer is by evolving a Stantler after letting it use Psyshield Bash in Agile Style 20 times.
The following are the Research Tasks in Wyrdeer’s Pokedex entry:
|x2||Times you have seen it use Psyshield Bash||1/3/8/20/40|
|Times you have seen it use Extrasensory||1/3/8/20/40|
|Times you have seen it use a strong style move||1/3/8/20/40|
|x2||Times you have seen it use an agile style move||1/3/8/20/40|
When one of the objectives of a Research Task is met, a Pokedex entry’s Research Level will be raised by one level. When completing a Research Task objective with a multiplier of x2, an entry receives two Research Levels instead of one. When a Pokemon reaches Research Level 10, its Pokedex entry is considered complete.
To quickly complete Wyrdeer’s Pokedex entry, the player can catch one Wyrdeer by evolving a Stantler, then use it in battle and use Psyshield Bash in Agile Style three times. Doing these will tick the first objective of the “Number caught” Research Task to add two Research Levels because of its x2 multiplier, tick the first and second objectives of the “Times you have seen it use Psyshield Bash” Research Task to gain four Research Levels thanks to its x2 multiplier, and tick the first and second objective of the “Times you have seen it use an agile style” Research Task to raise four more Research Levels also thanks to its x2 multiplier to reach Research Level 10 ultimately.
Wyrdeer can learn new moves from the Training Grounds or by leveling up.
These are the moves that Wyrdeer can learn by leveling up:
|Move||Type||Learn Level||Master Level||Power||Accuracy||PP|
|Zen Headbutt||Psychic type||37||48||80||90||10|
Wyrdeer can learn the new moves by speaking with Captain Zisu in the Training Grounds, which is located in the northwesternmost part of Jubilife Village:
Wyrdeer can be an invaluable ally in pursuing missions, requests, or Arceus’ mission to catch ’em all!
