With a much more unique approach to gameplay and item management in Pokémon Legends: Arceus, the game has some very confusing twists in store for long-time franchise fans. The new systems can be pretty confusing, so here’s some help if you need it. Like previous games, there’s new things to tackle as well. Players have to be quick with learning about things like new move Styles, Pokéball crafting and more.
Crafting takes a much bigger role in Pokémon Legends: Arceus and Crunchy Salt is another resource that players need to find. Along with the Pokéball crafting and other options you have, there’s a bunch of healing items to make too. It’s a pretty big change for the series, even considering the wildly different timeline we have to deal with. So with that in mind, let’s talk all about Crunchy Salt in Pokémon Legends Arceus.
Not only can these crafting materials be found as resource nodes, but they have other sources. Crunchy Salt can be found in the Coronet Highlands near the Bolderoll Ravine area. One of the things to learn about any of the crafting materials is that they can also drop from Pokémon. So head to that zone and look for Pokémon and the distinctive pink rock formations that denote mineral resource spawns. These are the best places to look. Gligar, Gible, Swinub, Piloswine, Bergmite, and Avalugg seem to drop it pretty often.
What is Crunchy Salt in Pokémon Legends Arceus used for?
The most obvious use aside from a crafting recipe is for certain requests. For the request Even More New Wares, you need to bring three Crunchy Salt to Tao Hua.
Crunchy Salt can be crafted into Salt Cakes, which are used to lure Pokémon “that bear a resemblance to grass, plants, or minerals,” according to the description used in the game.
