Noble Pokémon

The noble Pokémon (Japanese: キング・クイーン Kings and Queens) are a select group of Pokémon in the Hisui region who are descendants of five of the ten companions of the Ancient Hero of legend, blessed by Arceus.

Quelling a noble Pokémon


Inheriting the duties of protecting the Diamond and Pearl Clans, noble Pokémon have the distinct "Lord" and "Lady" titles. There are a total of five noble Pokémon who, along with the five Ride Pokémon, are cared for under a warden of the Diamond or Pearl Clan. These Pokémon are often larger than their standard counterparts, and they may even be larger than alpha Pokémon. In addition, noble Pokémon cannot be caught.

In Pokémon Legends: Arceus, the five noble Pokémon have become frenzied due to a special energy from the space-time rift. To quell a noble Pokémon, the player character must throw balms made of the noble's favorite food until its frenzy gauge reaches zero. After being quelled, each noble Pokémon will grant the player the plate corresponding to its primary type.

In the post-game, the player can have a rematch against the nobles at their respective arenas by talking to the warden. The challenges will be identical, except the noble Pokémon will all be at Lv. 70 with full effort levels, and the player is timed for personal records.

All frenzied nobles will launch attacks against the player in a specific sequence. The nobles can all be stunned at some point during their fight by exploiting gaps in their attack patterns, and at this time the player can throw their Pokémon at it to initiate a normal Pokémon battle. The way the player can stun a noble varies between each specific noble. After being defeated in battle, the noble will become stunned for several more seconds, during which its frenzy gauge will deplete faster from balms, before reinitiating a new sequence of attacks.

During their respective Missions, all noble Pokémon have zero effort levels. During rematches, all noble Pokémon will be at Lv. 70 with the maximum ten effort levels in each stat.

Lord of the Woods: Kleavor

Lord Kleavor is fought in Grandtree Arena, and must be quelled using Forest Balms.

Lord Kleavor primarily attacks by charging a short distance in a straight line, towards the player; this is telegraphed by his eyes flashing. If the player lures Kleavor into running into the Grandtree or the stone walls of the arena, he will then become stunned, allowing the player to send out a Pokémon to battle. Less frequently, Kleavor will attempt to attack the player by swinging his axes around in a circle, which will be telegraphed by a large whirlwind appearing around Kleavor that designates the attack's area of effect.

Once Kleavor's frenzy gauge is half-depleted, both of Kleavor's attacks will have their windup times reduced. His attack pattern is otherwise identical to its first phase.

In the post-game, the player can initiate a rematch with Lord Kleavor by speaking to Lian at Grandtree Arena. Upon winning a rematch, the player will receive three Exp. Candies M and, if the player received no damage, one Exp. Candy L.

Lady of the Ridge: Lilligant

Lady Lilligant is fought in Brava Arena, and must be quelled using Marsh Balms.

Lady Lilligant attacks primarily by jumping into the air and producing shockwaves when she lands. The number of jumps she will make can be estimated by the number and color of the musical notes produced before she jumps. After evading her attacks long enough, she will jump four times in a row and become stunned at the end of the last jump, allowing her to be fought with the player's Pokémon.

Once Lady Lilligant's frenzy gauge is half-depleted, she periodically performs a spinning strike after she lands from a jump, producing a larger green shockwave. The shockwave then expands to cover the whole arena, forcing the player to dodge through the shockwave as it spreads to avoid damage. This can be chained with her regular jumps as well.

In the post-game, the player can initiate a rematch with Lady Lilligant by speaking to Calaba at Brava Arena. Upon winning a rematch, the player will receive three Exp. Candies M and, if no damage was received, one Exp. Candy L.

Lord of the Isles: Arcanine

Lord Arcanine is fought in Molten Arena, and must be quelled using Volcano Balms.

Lord Arcanine primarily attacks by charging across the arena in a straight line towards the player; like with Lord Kleavor, his eyes will flash right before he charges. During this sequence, Arcanine will also leap to the center of the stage, before charging across the arena again. Arcanine will then create five fireballs above him, signaling a large explosion that cannot be dodged. The player can cancel this attack by hitting him with balms, causing the fireballs to disappear. Arcanine will then become stunned, allowing the player to send out a Pokémon to battle.

Once Arcanine's frenzy gauge is half-depleted, Arcanine will also leave behind a large field of flames upon leaping to the center of the arena, effectively trapping the player in a corner of the arena. The flames will not disappear until the player stuns Arcanine again. His attack pattern is otherwise identical to its first phase.

In the post-game, the player can initiate a rematch with Lord Arcanine by speaking to Palina at Molten Arena. Upon winning a rematch, the player will receive three Exp. Candies M and, if no damage was taken, one Exp. Candy L.

Lord of the Hollow: Electrode

Lord Electrode is fought in Moonview Arena, and must be quelled using Mountain Balms.

Lord Electrode will initially attack by launching homing Thunderbolts and summoning Hisuian Voltorb to haphazardly fall from the trees and explode, alternating between these attacks; the explosion radii are marked by a glowing circle around the Voltorb. After a few waves, it will leap to the player and begin glowing bright white, ready to Self-Destruct. It will follow the player for several seconds before finally exploding and stunning itself; like the Voltorb, a circle on the ground will mark the attack's area of effect before it is executed. During this time, the player can send out a Pokémon to battle. Afterwards, Electrode will reinitiate the same attack sequence.

Once Electrode's frenzy gauge is half-depleted, it will begin to launch homing Energy Balls, in addition to the Thunderbolts, that move slightly faster. Its attack pattern is otherwise identical to its first phase.

In the post-game, the player can initiate a rematch with Lord Electrode by speaking to Melli at Moonview Arena. Upon winning a rematch, the player will receive four Exp. Candies M and, if the player received no damage, three Grit Pebbles.

Lord of the Tundra: Avalugg

Lord Avalugg is fought in Icepeak Arena, and must be quelled using Snow Balms.

Lord Avalugg begins by launching zigzagging volleys of Ice Balls at the player. Then he will create rows of large icicles sticking up from the ground, which start from the front and end at the back of the arena. Next, he will launch four successive Mountain Gale attacks towards the player. And finally, he will fire a large Ice Beam while panning across the arena. Lord Avalugg will become stunned after this attack, and the player can send out a Pokémon to battle. Afterwards, Avalugg will repeat the same sequence of attacks.

Once Lord Avalugg's frenzy gauge is half-depleted, the attack sequence becomes more aggressive. While launching the ice ball volleys, Lord Avalugg will also cause icicles to appear from the ground, limiting the player's movement. The large icicle rows from the ground now form side-to-side across the stage, and then briefly leave behind ice spikes on the ground. The Mountain Gale attack now fires six times and more rapidly. And before the final Ice Beam attack, Lord Avalugg will create three more icicles from the ground that leave behind ice spikes, making it harder to dodge the attack.

Upon winning a rematch, the player will receive four Exp. Candies M and, if the player received no damage, three Grit Pebbles.

  • Some noble Pokémon have several unique distinctions:
    • Kleavor is the only noble Pokémon who is a new evolution of a previously existing Pokémon. The rest are Pokémon with regional forms.
      • Interestingly, the noble Pokémon consist of four Pokémon with regional forms and one evolution of a preexisting Pokémon, while the Ride Pokémon of Hisui consist of four evolutions of preexisting Pokémon and one Pokémon with a regional form.
    • Lilligant is the only noble Pokémon with the title of "Lady", due to being the only female noble.
      • Likewise, Electrode is the only gender unknown noble Pokémon. Despite this, it uses the male title "Lord".
    • Electrode is the only noble Pokémon to summon other Pokémon during its fight, namely Voltorb.
  • Statues of all of the noble Pokémon and ridable Pokémon, created by the original inhabitants of Hisui, can be found at the Temple of Sinnoh. However, these statues are destroyed during the climax of Pokémon Legends: Arceus, along with the temple's roof and pillars.
  • Dialga, Palkia, and Arceus in Pokémon Legends: Arceus are fought similarly to how noble Pokémon are fought, including usage of Balms.
