List of in-game event Pokémon (Legends: Arceus)

This is a list of Pokémon obtainable from events found in Pokémon Legends: Arceus.

Most of these Pokémon can only be obtained once per game; however, some may also be obtained in other ways as well. All Pokémon listed, unless otherwise noted, are Shiny-locked.

Hisui starter Pokémon

One of these Pokémon is given to the player by Professor Laventon after they are recruited into the Galaxy Team's Survey Corps. They must pick one of the three to obtain; after completing the main story, they can talk to Laventon to obtain the two that they did not pick. They also become available in space-time distortions, where they are not Shiny or alpha locked, unlike the ones from Professor Laventon.
