One of the many new things introduced in Pokémon Legends: Arceus is the ability to craft. Instead of hitting up established shops for the items you need, you can just craft your own Pokéballs, cakes, potions, and more! Naturally, this means you'll have to hunt down a recipe and a few ingredients but don't worry, we're here to help. Here's how to craft in Pokémon Legends: Arceus.

How to craft in Pokémon Legends: Arceus

Pokémon Legends: Arceus is quite the departure from past games in many ways, and one of these is in crafting items. You'll still need to get money and run by shops, but now you'll be buying ingredients instead of the items themselves. You'll first unlock the ability to craft with an early mission called The Basics of Crafting. This is a required quest and as such, it's impossible to miss. This is where you'll get the recipe for crafting Poké Balls.

From here on, whenever you want to craft an item, you'll need two things. The first is a recipe for the item in question, and the second is the list of ingredients. After making sure you have both of those things, just head to a workbench and start crafting!
