Some trainers are frustrated by a certain request asking them to capture a larger member of a specific Pokemon species.

Pokemon Legends: Arceus trainers have their quest log split into two distinct categories: Missions that further the plot and Requests that can be completed at any time. Generally, requests are simple tasks from Jubilife Villagers or other NPCs asking the trainer to bring back or donate a specific item or Pokemon. Even members of the Security Corps. can offer requests—such as the guardsman for the southern part of the Village, Dorian.

Dorian’s partner Pokemon is Buizel, the “Sea Weasel” Pokemon. While he adores his partner, Dorian will tell the trainer that he is curious to see a “bigger Buizel” as he’s heard Pokemon can come in different sizes. Thus, he tasks the trainer with finding one and bringing it to him.

Where to Find a Big Buizel in Pokemon Legends: Arceus

Big Buizel can be found in the Obsidian Fieldlands, typically along the water. The most common spawn points are:

  • Horseshoe Plains, in general
  • Either side of the river that flows under Worn Bridge, between it and Horseshoe Plains
  • Along the water near Nature’s Pantry
  • Either side of the river near Windswept Run

In order for this Buizel to count, it needs to be around 2’8” in height. Some trainers report the game will accept a Buizel that clocks in at 2’7”, as well. Buizel’s height can be checked via its profile summary by selecting it and choosing the “Check Summary” option.

The game will also alert players to a successful capture of a big Buizel as capturing a “large specimen” of the species is one of the research tasks necessary to complete its PokeDex entry. However, if one has caught a lot of Buizels, it may be hard to tell which one completed the task.

Rewards for Request #4 are one (1) Experience Candy S and five (5) Oran Berries.
