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.

There's one Pokémon in particular that’s always difficult to catch, and in Pokémon Legends Arceus it’s no different. Shortly after the start of the game you’ll be prompted with a cutscene that references purple glowing wisps. This starts mission 22 “Eerie Apparitions at Night”.

We've revealed the Pokémon you'll catch at the bottom of the page, so be careful if you want to keep the surprise for once you've found all the Wisps. You have been warned!...

Eerie Apparitions in the Night Wisp Locations - Every Wisp Guide

You’ll find have to collect 108 wisps, which will let you encounter a particularly elusive Pokémon (see the bottom of the page for spoilers) and complete your Pokédex, a requirement of beating the final challenge.

Thankfully, we have maps showing off where every wisp in the game happens to be.

NOTE. In the Coronet Highlands, one wisp is inside the Wayward Cave, making it one of only 2 wisps in the game that requires you to enter a cave door. The other, in the Alabaster Iceland, is inside Snowpoint temple.

With that said, here are our complete maps to help you find every wisp in the game. Just look for the red dots...
