Pokémon Legends Arceus - How to grind XP and level up fast
Pokémon Legends: Arceus is an action RPG game and as such, gaining XP and levelling up are some of the core elements of the game.

And while progressing your character and watching your abilities become increasingly stronger is part of the fun, for many players this process can be rather infuriating, especially if it's slow or if they find some parts of the game a wee too challenging.

Pokémon Legends: Arceus offers natural progression that some players might find to be a slow and time-consuming process, but on the other hand, gaining XP is important and it would be convenient if we could speed up that process somehow.

If you want to level up fast in Pokémon Legends: Arceus, we might have a few tips and tricks for you.

Unfortunately, there's no magical solution that will give you the possibility to level up extremely fast, at least none that we are aware of at the moment.

Quite possibly players will at some point find some game mechanic or some instance of the game that will allow you to endlessly farm XP, but for now, the best thing you can do is focus on combat.

Before explaining all the ways you can earn XP, we want to stress the importance of Experience Candy items, which can be used to level up your Pokémon.

Now let's see how you can accelerate your levelling in Pokémon Legends Arceus.

Going around the open world and finding favourable opportunities to battle Pokémon that are weaker than your Pokémon is currently the best way to farm experience in Pokémon Legends: Arceus.

Since Pokémon games are always a game of rock-paper-scissors, always try to find Pokémon that are weak against those you have in your party. That will speed up the battle and thus make farming XP faster.

Capturing Pokémon also earns you XP, granted, far less than combat, but that's something you can always do as you go around and explore, and thus it can be a steady XP income.

Make the most of Mass Outbreak events, as these give you even better opportunities to catch and battle waves of Pokémon.

Asides from these core activities, the obvious way to earn experience and level up in Pokémon Legends Arceus is simply by doing quests and progressing through the story. The main story quests will yield you a lot of experience, but make sure not to neglect side missions, and try to complete as many as you can.

They can often be fun and earn you much-needed extra XP to level up faster, plus they will often take you to some previously unexplored location, which will provide you with even more opportunities to capture and battle new Pokémon.
