Pokemon Legends Arceus Space-Time Distortions

Space-Time Distortions in Pokemon Legends Arceus occur throughout the game's region at random. These events will begin appearing after completing specific requirements. These distortions will drop plenty of rare and valuable items while spawning exceptionally rare Pokemon that can't be caught anywhere else. However, these distortions can be dangerous, and you can get overwhelmed by multiple Pokemon at once; make sure you are prepared beforehand.

Where to find Space-Time Distortions in PLA

These events do not occur immediately and require the player to progress in the game; however, the requirements are not that challenging and can usually be done by simply playing through the game. Below we will list the requirements needed to unlock this event. After completing these, Space-Time Distortions will begin appearing throughout the region in your game.

  • Defeat Kleavor
  • Reach the two-star rank
  • Enter the Crimson Mirelands

Space distortions appear randomly and can not be forced to appear; however, you can stand idle and wait for one to occur if you wish. Be sure not to close your game, and if you do so while a Space-Time Distortion is active, it will disappear even if you saved your game beforehand. It should be noted the Pokemon's levels in these areas will also scale along with your story progression. Once a space distortion has appeared, you can check your map for its location; a white vortex will indicate it on the map. Once Space distortions begin forming, a message will appear saying, "A space-time distortion seems to be forming!". While this is happening, you want to head towards the area and enter it. Once it's formed and the message "A space-time distortion appeared", now will be the time to make sure to catch and collect as much as you can. Once the distortion ends, the normal Pokemon that appear in the area will begin spawning again, and a message saying "The distortion has ended." will appear.

As mentioned above, simply spending time in an area will increase your chances of encountering the Space-Time Distortion. To give you a better idea of how this works, look at the table below. (Note: Waiting in a Menu or while in Pokemon Battle will pause the timer.)

Time Chance Increase Chance Rate
5 Min+10%10%
10 Min+20%30%
15 Min+20%50%
25 Min+25%75%
40 Min+25%100%
Note: While Dialga or Palkia is available at Spear Pillar, your chance to encounter a Space-Time is increased roughly 10-25%.
Note: If extreme weather occurs, such as Intense Sun, Thunderstorm, or Snowstorm, a distortion will not generate.

List of all Pokemon found in Space-Time Distortions in Pokemon Legends Arceus

Once a Distortion begins, tons of Pokemon will start appearing, and these Pokemon can range from rare Pokemon that you cant catch anywhere else, to Alpha Pokemon. These places, as mentioned above, are incredibly dangerous if you are not prepared. Below, we will include a list of all Pokemon found in time distortions and note the rare Pokemon that can only be caught from them. The Eeveelutions are listed here as they can not be "caught" anywhere outside Distortions outside of evolution.

Note: The Pokemon's levels in these areas will also scale along with your story progression.
