We’ve put together a brief guide on where to find Stantler in Pokemon Legends: Arceus.

Stantler has risen sharply in popularity since its original release as part of Generation II. This previously single-form reindeer has gained a new evolved form with the launch of Pokemon Legends: Arceus—Wyrdeer, a creature blessed by the “Almighty Sinnoh” and revered for its connection to the world around it. According to legend—and gameplay—trainers who prove themselves worthy to Wyrdeer will be allowed to ride on its back across Hisui.

Of course, in order to get a Wyrdeer, trainers will need to obtain a Stantler, first.

Where to Find Stantler in Pokemon Legends: Arceus

Stantler commonly spawns in the following locations:

  • Deertrack Heights (Obsidian Fieldlands)
  • Windbreak Strand (Cobalt Coastlands)
  • Wayward Woods (Cobalt Coastlands)

Trainers should take care to not startle Stantler when they spot it. This Pokemon is skittish and will flee if engaged in a battle or approached too quickly. For this reason, we recommend staying hidden until the trainer is close enough to throw a PokeBall at it or an item to stun it. With any luck, this will allow for a successful capture without wasting too much time or energy chasing it down.

Stantler’s evolution requirement into Wyrdeer can be time consuming—but, according to player reports, is very much worth it. We have more information about how to evolve Stantler into Wyrdeer in our companion article on the subject. While there is no proper level or friendship requirement, trainers will need to ensure their captured Stantler knows and uses a particular move.

Pokemon Legends: Arceus is available now for the Nintendo Switch.
