Pokémon Legends: Arceus is loaded with new features for long-time Pokémon fans. One of these new features is crafting, which allows players to create special items like Poké Balls and potions on their own. After progressing through the first few tutorials, players will be able to craft items out in the field, making use of the many materials they find on their journey. But to make the most of crafting, players must understand how to craft and how to unlock recipes.

How to Craft

There are two options for players that want to craft new items. The first is to craft using the Crafting Kit, a Key Item you receive early on. You can access it through the Key Items tab in your Satchel; just select it and choose “Craft”. This will allow you to craft at any time, with the restriction of only having access to Everyday Items in your Satchel.

If you want to use items in your Storage, you’ll need to craft at a Workbench. Workbenches are only found in the Craftworks in Jubilife Village and the various base camps you access during excursions. As such, you can’t take them with you, but they’ll let you use any materials you might have collected or stored.

The actual act of crafting is simple. Highlight your desired item, and you can see any materials it needs on the right side of the screen. You can craft multiple items at once, as long as you have enough materials for them.

How to Unlock Recipes

Certain recipes are obtained through increasing your Star Rank, which grants access to recipes for better potions and Poké Balls. Players can also visit the Craftworks to purchase recipes. More recipes become available for purchase as players progress through the story, so you should check back regularly. Finally, certain recipes are received as rewards from Requests.  Check out the full list of recipes for Pokemon Legends Arceus below.
