Base camp

This article is about the base camps in Pokémon Legends: Arceus. For the base camp in Pokémon Quest, see Base camp (Quest).

Base camps (Japanese: ベースキャンプ base camp) are locations established by the Galaxy Team Survey Corps throughout the Hisui region. They serve as hubs for which the player begin survey expeditions from, and they also act as checkpoints for fast-travel. Members of the Galaxy Team provide services for the player to use at each location. They serve as areas for the player to heal their party, access their pastures, as well as purchase, sell, store, and craft items.

Each base camp shares the same set of services which the player can access.

Reporting Pokédex data

Professor Laventon appears at any base camp that the player visits. He offers to check off any new research tasks that the player completed during their expedition, as well as review any Pokémon caught. He grants the player research points with every completed research task. He will continue to give research points even if the player exceeds the points required to reach the next rank. After the report is finished, Laventon will give the player the option to return to Jubilife Village or to continue on their expedition in the area.

Starting with Mission 13: "Disaster Looming", Professor Laventon temporarily disappears from all base camps, preventing the player from reporting any new data. He returns to his usual role after receiving Mission 17: "Atop Mount Coronet".

Healing and resting

The player can either speak to the Galaxy Team member or interact with the open tent to rest. The player can choose to rest for just a little while, which causes no time to pass at all. The player can also choose to rest until morning, midday, evening, or nightfall to manually change the time. Taking a rest will fully restore the HP of all Pokémon in the player's party.


Items can be bought and sold from the Galaxy Team member stationed at the camps. The stock of the shop is the same as the stock sold by Choy in the general store in Jubilife Village. The shop inventory grows as requests from Tao Hua get completed.

Main article: Pastures

The player can conveniently access their pastures without returning to Jubilife Village by speaking to the Galaxy Team member at any base camp.

Item storage

There is an item storage container at every base camp for the player to sort their items or move items between their satchel and item storage. Items can be moved in bulk or individually.


Every base camp has a crafting bench, allowing players to craft items from their available recipes. Unlike the Crafting Kit key item, which allows players to craft using only materials from their satchel and requires space in the satchel for the crafted items; using the crafting bench allows players to craft using materials in either their satchel or storage, and the crafted item is sent to storage if there is not room in their satchel.


As of Version 1.1.0, Mai and her Munchlax will station at base camps. Munchlax has the power to reveal all of the Pokémon in outbreaks during a massive mass outbreak in the area, at the cost of 5 Aguav Berries. The player must talk to Mai to activate this effect.

From Request 97: "Massive Mass Outbreak in the Mirelands" to Request 101: "Massive Mass Outbreak in the Icelands", Mai and Munchlax will only be stationed in the respective area corresponding to the request. After completing Request 102: "Daybreak", they can be found at any base camp.
