What Is The Linking Cord For In Pokemon Legends Arceus

You can get Linking Cord a number of ways. You can buy them from the MP store in town, you can dig them up as buried treasure, or they are available as rewards from Requests (such as Request #64 – Getting To Know Ghosts). Once you have a Linking Cord available, you simply need to have the correct Pokemon in your party and you can use it to evolve them.

So far we’ve seen Linking Cords compatible with Machoke (to evolve to Machamp), Haunter (to evolve into Gengar), Kadabra (into Alakazam), which is great as you can catch Abra really early, and Graveler (to evolve into Golem). So it basically covers all of the first generation Pokemon that required link trades to evolve.
