All Wisp locations in Pokemon Legends Arceus

There are 107 Wisps spread out across every area in Pokemon Legends Arceus, including Jubilife Village, so you’ll need to check everywhere thoroughly. Searching at night can help, as they’ll be easier to spot.

You’ll also need to unlock rideable Pokemon like Sneasler and Hisuian Braviary in order to access certain Wisps, as many of them are inaccessible by foot – especially ones that are found in high up places.

Head back to Jubilife Village and speak to Nessa, who will instruct you to meet her at the Shrouded Ruins. Just like when you were collecting Wisps, make sure you do this at night time, or she won’t be there.

When you find Nessa, she’ll inform you that there’s actually one more Wisp to collect, making 108 of them in total. Approach the Wisp, interact with it as you did with the others, and a wild Spiritomb will appear.

Unlike other Pokemon that appear in the wild, this is the only chance you’ll get to catch Spiritomb, so make sure you save before starting the encounter and try not to accidentally defeat it in battle.

To summarize:

  1. Obtain all Wisps
  2. Speak to Nessa in Jubilife Village when you’ve done so
  3. Meet at her the Shrouded Ruins at night
  4. Encounter the final wisp
  5. Catch Spiritomb
