Share your best in-game teams for Pokemon Legends: Arceus on this thread! Teams should be aimed toward making casual runs of the game efficient, enjoyable and hassle-free.

Please follow these guidelines regarding detail in your post:

  1. For every Pokemon on the team, give recommended moves for use throughout the playthrough. Ideally, comment on more than just the four moves you'll finish with post-game.
  2. Provide explanation and detail. Justify your Pokemon and moveset choices; possible discussion points include ease-of-use, team synergy, and coverage for key battles.

Please also follow these guidelines regarding the contents of your team:

  1. Mention alternatives if you recommend Pokemon, moves, etc. that are only available by breeding, grinding, events, etc.
  2. There are some unspoken rules of in-game teams, such as to keep the starter on the team and avoid legendaries. It's kind to give other options if you break these rules.
  3. Do not recommend Pokemon, moves, etc. that are only available through glitches and cheats.
  4. Original content only. You can use ideas you found elsewhere, but do not steal written content.

Submit your team as an answer, not a comment. To keep things tidy, we will remove any teams posted as comments in this thread. If you want to update your post, use the 'edit' button.

Please be sparing with images and formatting.

Hisuian Typhlosion

  • Flamethrower

  • Hex / Infernal Parade / Shadow Ball

  • Swift / Rollout

  • Thunder Punch / Move of your choice

GOSH does Hisuian Typhlosion make the game easier. The Alpha Krikcetune mandatory battle is really easy with Cyndaquil, and so is the frenzied Lilligant. Additionally, both Adaman & Irida have Pokemon weak to Typhlosion. While Oshawott makes some things easier (like the Kleavor battle), Buizel is also a good option. In addition, Typhlosion is tied with Samurott for lowest amount of weaknesses (5; still isn't great), with Decidueye having a whopping 6, with one being a x4 instead of x2.


  • Aqua Jet / Aqua Tail

  • Ice Fang / Ice Punch

  • Crunch

  • Double Hit / anything

Buizel is really underrated. Its evolution has a BST of 495; not phenomenal, but good. Its movepool is good, especially with all the Ice moves it learns via Move Tutor. Plus, it's easy to get early on.


  • Thunder Fang / Wild Charge

  • Crunch

  • Ice Fang

  • Play Rough / anything

There is an unspoken rule about Sinnoh games: you kind of have to have Luxray on your team. A BST of 523, absurd Attack, and a single weakness are all in its favor. While its Speed isn't the best, Ground types are usually much slower, which should let you get in a super-effective Ice Fang in quickly.

Gardevoir  sprite from Legends: Arceus

  • Psychic

  • Moonblast

  • Hypnosis/Recover

  • Aura Sphere

Gardevoir is a cool Pokemon with some very powerful attacks. While you won't have it for a little while, once you get to Crimson Mirelands you can find it. Before that, you can substitute with Abra/Kadabra.

Hisuian Zoroark

  • Shadow Ball

  • Sludge Bomb

  • Extrasensory

  • Swift

Normal and Ghost is a great combination! This guy also learns some pretty special moves.

Hisuian Goodra

  • Dragon Pulse / Draco Meteor

  • Steel Beam / Iron Head

  • Hydro Pump / Water Pulse

  • Shelter

The Dragon/Steel type combination is really cool. This 'mon also has access to several Water type moves.

Let me know what you think!

Just some feedback, next time could you space out your moveset and make it look cleaner. It’s pretty hard to read.
i agree with seven of nine(tails) about zoroark goodra luxray and floatzel. even with the new update zoroark and zorua might be hard to find, so I recomend using luxray until you can get one. I would personally go with decidueye but pick witchever starter you what, but I disagre with alakazam. gardevoir is far superior in this game, alakazam has 3 weaknesses and 2 2 times resistances, gardevoir has 3 weaknesses also, but it has stab supper efectiveness for one of them, and it has 1 2 times resistance 1 4 times resistance and 1 immunity. and it's early game as well, you could use a abra/kadabra until you get ralts in the crimson mirelands, but once you do just box the kadabra.
Good point Zera-Ore-A! I'll change that.
steel beam is very risky to use, and also, Why Is Bitter Mallace On Zoroark?!
it doubles in power if the target has a status condition, and it can give frostbite, meaning most of the time it is 120 base power, it is broken.
Hisuian Zoroark is extremely late, at the last area unlocked. Hisuian Goodra is also pretty late.

Nature: Preferably something that doesn't lower Attack or Speed
- Rock Slide/Stone Edge
- Fire Fang/Flare Blitz/Raging Fury
- Crunch
- Play Rough/Anything
Rock Slide is a good alternative to Stone Edge if you don't want to spend money on the tutor. Other Fire-types like Rapidash could also work, but Rapidash evolves late at level 40.

Nature: Preferably something that doesn't lower Attack or Speed
- X-Scissor
- Aerial Ace
- Sword Dance
- Anything
You could evolve it into Scizor or Kleavor, but I prefer the speed over greater defense and power. X-Scissor is good stab, and Swords Dance if you want to set up.

Nature: Preferably something that doesn't lower Attack or Speed
- Roost
- Close Combat
- Aerial Ace/Brave Bird
- Giga Impact/Anything
- Anything
If you don't want the type overlap with Scyther, you could use one of the starters or whatever you want. Roost is good healing, and Close Combat is good coverage.

Nature: Preferably something that doesn't lower Special Attack or Speed
- Shadow Ball
- Sludge Bomb
- Dazzling Gleam
- Hypnosis/Thunderbolt
You could also use the Linking Cord on something else such as Alakazam, but Gengar is very good. Dazzling Gleam is nice coverage, and Shadow Ball and Sludge Bomb are your dual STABs.

Nature: Preferably something that doesn't lower Attack or Speed
- Thunder Fang/Wild Charge
- Play Rough
- Ice Fang
- Crunch
Luxray kind of depends on tutoring to get some of his best moves, but at least he gets STAB and Crunch through level up.

Nature: Preferably something that doesn't lower Attack or Speed
- Close Combat
- Poison Jab
- Iron Tail/Shadow Claw/Dire Claw
- Drain Punch/ X-Scissor
Close Combat and Poison Jab are both good STAB and Dire Claw isn't great, but it can status the opponet. Drain Punch can heal back some damage, but Iron Tail, Shadow Claw, and X-Scissor are just coverage. Sneasler comes pretty late, at Coronet Highlands, so you could use something like Hisuian Lilligant:
Hisuian Lilligant
Nature: Preferably something that doesn't lower Attack or Speed
- Drain Punch
- Leaf Blade
- Poison Jab/Aerial Ace
- Victory Dance/Close Combat
Drain Punch is nice healing STAB and Leaf Blade is also good STAB. Poison Jab and Aerial Ace are decent coverage, and Close Combat is an Alternate, more powerful STAB. Victory Dance is an amazing setup move. Hisuian Lilligant is also a good alternative is you don't want to use Sneasler at all.
