Pokémon Legends: Arceus – Base Camps Guide

How to unlock more Satchel Space in Pokémon Legends: Arceus

The newest Pokémon game has added and refined a bunch of content. Pokémon Legends: Arceus is a pretty big change for the series, as it brings out plenty of things to learn. There have been many new additions and brought forward mechanics this time around. Fast travel is back and easier than ever before. Players have a simplified system around Shiny hunting, as well as held items in the new RPG. That’s not all that’s been changed either. There’s an option to change a Pokémon’s name in Pokémon Legends: Arceus now as well. One thing that has been changed is that the evolution system is now manual, giving Trainers more granular control over their teams.

What are Base Camps?

Base Camps are outposts spread throughout the world of this new game. These special locations have a few key functions. For one thing, they’re great for keeping your team in the fight. Base Camps let you and your Pokémon rest to recover their health after a battle. It’s a lot of work, but you really should learn where these locations are.

You can also rest at a Base Camp to skip over timeframes as you want. This is key to certain Requests, as certain spawns only happen during certain times of the game’s timeframe. Taking a nap and skipping half a day can get you to some spawns that otherwise would not be available.

You can also craft different items using workbenches found at Base Camps. This is the primary way you can make healing items, like Potions.  Make sure to obtain as many Crafting Recipes as you can by purchasing them from the various vendors you find around the game.
