Pokémon Legends: Arceus has a variety of methods for obtaining all of the game’s items. This is beneficial for players who struggle with a single approach and boosts replayability. The Linking Cord is to evolve trade-exclusive Pokémon on its own, like Haunter into Gengar or Kadabra into Alakazam.

Pokémon Legends: Arceus significantly alters the traditional model of mainstream Pokémon games, not just by adding new elements but also by removing some old ones. While held items, abilities, and breeding is absent from Pokémon Legends: Arceus, objects are still there, including numerous new ones. Linking Cord is one of the game’s best innovations but also one of the most difficult to obtain.

  • In Pokémon Legends: Arceus, players can obtain a Linking Cord through four different means, one of which is a one-time task. The most obvious way is to collect enough Merit Points by rescuing satchels in the overworld, then go to Simona’s shop in Jubilife Village and buy a Linking Cord for 1000 MP.
  • This isn’t the quickest way, which is why having additional options is important. Shaking ores in the overworld, which typically contain a Geodude or Graveler encounter, might occasionally yield a Linking Cord in Pokémon Legends: Arceus.

Another option is to look for space-time distortion zones, which can appear in any large location at any time. Linking Cord, along with other evolution items such as Upgrades and Shards, can be found on the floor. Non-Shard items have a spherical shape and are easier to find. Players should look for the Linking Cord on the ground and tiny slopes.

Finally, completing Request 64: Getting to Know Ghosts, which is after defeating the third noble Pokémon in Pokémon Legends: Arceus’ plot, guarantees that players will receive a Linking Cord. This occurs at the conclusion of the Cobalt Coastlands tale.
