We’ve put together a guide on where to find the Pokemon that stole everyone’s hearts from the jump: Hisuian Growlithe.
Pokemon Legends: Arceus’ true star is far from its namesake. One Pokemon completely stole the show when the title was announced: Hisuian Growlithe, the regional variant of the original Kanton Growlithe released in Generation I. Now partially made of stone, Hisuian Growlithe features a fluffy mane that obscures its face and chest with single horn on the top of its head. The horn is fragile, according to its PokeDex description, so Growlithe will only battle with it when it will be most effective.
Additionally, it is naturally distrustful of humans. Hisuian Growlithe are often seen patrolling their territory in pairs.
Pokemon Legends: Arceus Hisuian Growlithe Spawn Locations
Hisuian Growlithe can be found in the Cobalt Coastlands—a gulf-like zone containing a small collection of nearby islands. Hisuian Growlithe can be found in Veilstone Cape and Windbreak Strand. It doesn’t appear that this Pokemon is partial to a particular time of day, either.
Once found, Hisuian Growlithe can be encountered and captured like any other Pokemon trainers have taken a liking to so far. It isn’t a very common spawn, however, so trainers shouldn’t feel discouraged if they don’t find one right away.
Trainers can evolve Hisuian Growlithe using a Fire Stone. We’ve provided more information on how to evolve it in our companion article detailing how to go about adding a Hisuian Arcanine to your team.
Pokemon Legends: Arceus is available now for the Nintendo Switch. Those who purchase and open the game before May 9 will gain access to the Hisuian Growlithe and Zorua-themed pre-order bonuses.
