Pokémon Legends: Arceus is the latest adventure in the Pokémon franchise, this time bringing with it a whole new open world, new catching mechanics and more. While the deep mysteries of Hisui, and which Pokémon you’re going to encounter, are left for you to solve, there are a few Pokémon that you might need a bit of help catching.

Pokémon Legends: Arceus is full of regional variations of popular Pokémon from the history of the series, and you’ll need to catch them all in order to complete the final quest. One of the new evolutions added to older Pokémon is Wyrdeer, a new evolution of Stantler.

How to get Wyrdeer in Pokémon Legends: Arceus

In order to get Wyrdeer, you’ll need to use the move Psyshield Bash in the Agile Style 20 times as a Stantler. After you’ve done that, your Stantler will be ready to evolve into Wyrdeer.

While you do get a rideable Wyrdeer early in the game, that doesn’t count towards Pokédex completion, so you’ll need to catch a Stantler and evolve it if you’re going to complete the final quest.

You’ll need to catch both, and all of the other Hisuian forms if you want to complete the final quest. We have guides for all the trickier Pokémon below, or, if you’d rather check out the whole Pokédex, you can find that too.
