The Daybreak content update has arrived for Pokemon Legends: Arceus, and players can unlock a new Battle Tower-like system called the Eternal Battle Reverie after completing the main storyline. Like all Daybreak content, you must complete the story of Pokemon Legends: Arceus in order to access it, but the Eternal Battle Reverie is not available immediately after starting the Daybreak content. You’ll have to play through the majority of the new missions before you can enter. Here’s how to unlock the Eternal Battle Reverie in Pokemon Legends: Arceus.
How to Unlock the Eternal Battle Reverie in Pokemon Legends: Arceus
To unlock the Eternal Battle Reverie, you must first complete Request 102: Daybreak. This is one of the final quests in the Daybreak content update that was recently added to Pokemon Legends: Arceus. To reach it, you will have to complete the majority of the new quests in the update and work with Mai to observe massive mass outbreaks all over the Hisui region.
Eventually, you’ll receive the Daybreak request, which rewards you with some XL Exp. Candies, a Dawn Stone, and a Seed of Mastery. More importantly, the Eternal Battle Reverie will now be accessible. Just return to your quarters in Jubilife Village and sleep in your bed. You’ll be invited to the Eternal Battle Reverie where Arceus will test your mettle against an unending stream of enemy Pokemon.
How Does the Eternal Battle Reverie Work?
In the Eternal Battle Reverie, you will be forced to fight as many Pokemon as you can before your team is defeated. There is a wide range of Pokemon that you can battle, and you will be asked to choose your opponents from various categories. Some of them are self-explanatory like Electric-type Pokemon or Bug-type Pokemon, but some of them are a bit more confusing unless you’re really familiar with Pokemon. You can even battle Legendary Pokemon here if you choose the right category.
