Early on, there are two ways to catch Chimchar: one based on random spawning and the other a guaranteed technique; however, getting the Gen 4 Fire-type starter takes longer owing to plot requirements.

Instead of having its own starters, Pokémon Legends: Arceus brings back Cyndaquil, Oshawott, and Rowlet from three distinct generations of games and gives them a new Hisuian form. Because Hisui is the old Sinnoh, Pokémon Legends: Arceus players can also find all of the Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl starters in the wild, though in different locations and under different spawn conditions.


After completing the initial advancement near the Fieldlands camp, players should be ready to join the Galaxy Team and win their first star. This unlocks the area beyond Aspiration Hill’s bridge, allowing players to reach Deertrack Path and other parts of the map. At Deertrack Heights, a Chimchar or possibly a Monferno can be observed.

Chimchar and Monferno spawn in Deertrack Heights, and their base spawn rates are roughly 7% for Chimchar, 3.6 percent for Monferno, 0.69 percent for Alpha Chimchar, and 0.69 percent for Alpha Monferno, respectively. Nonetheless, this implies that players in Pokémon Legends: Arceus can obtain a Chimchar extremely early on in the game, even before facing the first noble Pokémon, Kleavor.

If catching Chimchar or Monferno seems too much of a pain, players can also find Chimchar through a guaranteed encounter. After calming Kleavor’s rage, players can return to Jubilife Village. After which, speak with Paira, who will assign them The Mysterious Will-o-the-Wisp quest.

Return to the Obsidian Fieldlands, this time to a location noted on their maps in Windswept Run. This is where players can also catch Abra in Pokémon Legends: Arceus. The task will only be available at night, and players will see a Chimchar perched on a tree. Players can save in front of the tree to confront a Chimchar with random stats and nature. This triggers players to reset their game and discover better stats of this Pokémon.
