How To Get All Starter Pokemon In Pokemon Legends Arceus

There are three starters in Arceus, Rowlet, Cyndaquil, and Oshawott. This guide on How To Get All Starter Pokemon In Pokemon Legends Arceus will tell you how you can obtain all three of the starter Pokemon, regardless of what Pokemon you chose, without having to trade with other players or use online functionalities.

The starters always represent some of the stronger Pokemon of those types, so it’s a good thing you can get all of them in Arceus.
