Are there held items in Pokémon Legends: Arceus?

Pokémon Legends: Arceus

Pokémon Legends: Arceus is here, and things have changed. Not only have the developers refined a few systems, but things have also been stripped out. The revamps to the franchise are everywhere, but it’s a bit weird. The focus on research and trying to learn more about wild Pokémon is a huge element. Trainers have to follow wild encounters around, trying to gather info on them. To help this system work, the number of items and mechanics have been slimmed down. And that reduction goes for eld items in Pokémon Legends: Arceus. But before we get into that, let’s talk about a few other mechanics in the game.

There have been positive changes to the game, like refining the shiny system. This makes it much easier to get shiny spawns by reducing the time it takes to find them. There have also been things changed that players seem not to like. For one thing, the evolution system has been stripped down, and players have to manually trigger evolutions now.

Are there held items in Pokémon Legends: Arceus?

Held items in Pokémon Legends: Arceus are once again a big part of the game, although they seem to be less common. Held items are a big part of the competitive and meta-game side of the franchise. But there have been a ton of them over the years. It seems as though the developers have scaled back the pure number of held items.

You can obtain plenty of Held Items in Pokemon Legends Arceus. Held Items such as Lucky Egg, (Pokémon this item is attached to gets more EXP in battle). Other items similar to this type like Shell Bell, and Twisted Spoon are obtained using game progress. Here’s how each held item works:

  • Lucky Egg – Pokémon this item is attached to gets more EXP in battle
  • Shell Bell – User restores 1/8th of maximum HP when damage is inflicted onto the opponent
  • Twisted Spoon – Any Psychic-type move’s power is increased by 10%
