The friendship level in Pokemon Legends Arceus is extremely useful when you increase it for any Pokemon. It will bring a range of bonuses, giving them a welcome boost. For some Pokemon, it is an essential component in their evolution. Pokemon like Lucario and Eevee can not evolve without it. Read on as we give our guide on how to increase friendship in Pokemon Legends Arceus.
How to Increase Friendship in Pokemon Legends Arceus
The easiest way to increase friendship is to spend time with your Pokemon. They need to be on all your travels, wherever you go in the Hisui realm. Make them battle with the wild Pokemon you encounter. Release them to run around in the wild. Finally, make them collect materials like rocks and apricorns for you. All this will make them feel loved and increase their friendship level.
A second method is to use experience candy. You can buy this as you travel around the map. All you have to do is decide if the monetary payoff is worth it. It is best if you are very close to evolution and want to add a little more to the tank.
Even if you have a Pokemon that does not need friendship to evolve, increasing these levels is a great bonus. They are more likely to get rid of status effects, survive knocked out, and generally put up more of a fight. Essentially, the more they get used the tougher they will become.
If you want to check your friendship level, then you need to have completed the main story quest “The Frenzy of the Lord of the Woods”. After completing a request from Bellamy in Jubilife village, you can check friendship there. Read our in-depth guide on checking friendship here.
