Pokémon Legends: Arceus features many different new mechanics when compared to previous Pokémon games. One of these is Alpha Pokémon. Unfortunately, these Pokémon are much harder to catch, being larger and stronger than regular Pokémon. This may leave you wondering how to catch them.
To catch Alpha Pokémon in Pokémon Legends: Arceus, you have two different approaches. The first is the classic method of battling and weakening them enough to catch them. The other option is to distract or sneak up on them and then throw a Pokéball while they are unaware. Use your best Pokéballs for this.

If you don’t have the Pokémon to battle the Alpha Pokémon, you should try and sneak up on them. If they break out of your Pokéball, run away until you are out of its sight and it has calmed down. Then try again until you catch it.
Alpha Pokémon are a great addition to your team as they are quite powerful. Plus, their large size is intimidating, to say the least. So get out there and catch yourself an Alpha, and good luck!
