There are many Pokémon to choose from in Pokémon Legends: Arceus, and the decision of which one to add to a party can be difficult for players. Some of the new Pokémon added in the Hisui region are impressive, but none more impressive than Hisuian Goodra. Hisuian Goodra stands as the best non-legendary Pokémon that players can get in Pokémon Legends: Arceus.

Hisuian Goodra

Hisuian Goodra has impressive stats, with its lowest being its speed stat. It has massive attack and defense stats and is a great asset to players in battle. Its dual-typing of Steel and Dragon also serves it well, as it has a very long list of resistances, which is a huge perk of having this Pokémon on hand.

Other great Pokémon in Pokémon Legends: Arceus

The Hisui Region is full of great Pokémon to choose from. Garchomp, Togekiss, and the new regional variant of Arcanine are all powerhouses and should be on players’ list of Pokémon to hunt down.


Garchomp is not only one of the best Pokémon in Pokémon Legends: Arceus, but one of the best in the series. Garchomp has amazing stats and packs a real punch in battle. Its biggest downfall is its Dragon and Ground dual-typing which gives it a 4x weakness to Ice-type moves.

  • Type: Dragon and Ground
  • Stat Total: 600
    • HP: 108
    • Attack: 130
    • Special Attack: 80
    • Defense: 95
    • Special Defense: 85
    • Speed: 102

Hisuian Arcanine

Hisuian Arcanine has a great set of stats and can be a great asset in battle with its attack power. It does have two 4x weaknesses to Water and Ground-type moves, so players should be cautious when using it.

  • Type: Fire and Rock
  • Stat Total: 555
    • HP: 95
    • Attack: 115
    • Special Attack: 95
    • Defense: 80
    • Special Defense: 80
    • Speed: 90


Togekiss is always a good Pokémon to have on hand. With access to Fairy-type moves, Togekiss is a great counter to many of the powerful Dragon-type Pokémon in the game. It has a nice special attack stat and can deal huge hits to opponents in battle.

  • Type: Fairy and Flying
  • Stat Total: 545
    • HP: 85
    • Attack: 50
    • Special Attack: 120
