How to Unlock Mass Outbreaks in Pokemon Legends Arceus

To unlock Mass Outbreaks in Pokemon Legends Arceus, you don’t really have to do that much. You don’t have to really do anything at all. Some outlets have been writing that you have to complete the main story before the Mass Outbreaks start happening, but that’s not the case at all. You can start getting them very early; if there is some kind of prerequisite that does need to be met, it’s not clear, and it’s definitely not finishing the game. Perhaps it’s just luck of the draw, so make sure you’ve given your offerings to the gods of RNG.

You’ll know that a Mass Outbreak event has begun by looking at the map. Go through the different regions on the world map and look at the upper left corner. If there’s an outbreak happening, that’s where it’ll tell you. Then, you can zoom in and see where exactly it is. Anyway, to unlock Mass Outbreaks in Pokemon Legends Arceus, go into an area, then go back to Jubilife Village to reset the maps. Rinse and repeat until an outbreak event begins. Again, it might take a while due to its random nature, and they might spawn more often in the post-game.

Now, why are these Mass Outbreaks important? Because they spawn a whole bunch of the same type of Pokemon, and you actually have decent odds of finding a Shiny version. Not always, of course, but it’s always worth visiting a Mass Outbreak. Same goes for space-time distortions, of course, but they are not quite the same beast. So, yeah; if you’re on the hunt for Shiny Pokemon, keep going back to Jubilife Village until you make one or more Mass Outbreaks appear.

In case you do happen to spawn two or more, save your game and go to one of them. If there is no shiny in that bunch, reload the save and see what’s in the other one. Repeat the process as necessary.
