How to swap Pokémon in Pokémon Legends: Arceus is something that many trainers are wondering about at the moment now that the newest title in the iconic franchise has finally been released worldwide.

Of course, in any Pokémon game, swapping out your active Pokémon is something every trainer must know how to do. As such, here's the breakdown of how to swap Pokémon in Pokémon Legends: Arceus.

How to Swap Pokémon in Pokémon Legends: Arceus

There are two ways to change out your Pokémon in Pokémon Legends: Arceus.

The first and main option is located at the Pokémon Pasture in Jubilife Village.

Located at the right side of the village on the map is the Pokémon Pasture, the place in which trainers can find and store all of the Pokémon they've caught by speaking with Marie.

If the pasture is getting too busy, trainers can release any of the Pokémon back into the wild, receiving some items to boot.

Instead of having to constantly travel to and from Jubilife Village, however trainers can also swap their Pokémon at any Base Camp in the game.

Simply look for the Galaxy Member NPC next to the professor wearing red robes and a yellow hat. When you speak to them, they will offer to swap out any of your current Pokémon with the ones being held in the Pokémon storage.

Pokémon Legends: Arceus released worldwide for Nintendo Switch on Jan. 28, 2022.
