Aux Powers are a great way of giving your squad some stat boosts in Pokemon Legends Arceus, but what exactly are they? And what crafting materials do you need to get one? 

Pokemon Legends Arceus has given the classic Nintendo series a Breath of the Wild-esque overhaul, allowing players to adventure through the harsh plains of the Hisui region in search of some of the franchise’s most iconic ‘mon.

One of the newest features to be added to the game is the crafting mechanism, which allows players to combine different ingredients to make one particularly powerful item. While we’ve seen plenty of this across the MMORPG genre, and many other open-world games, this is a new skill for Pokemon trainers to master.

What are Aux Powers in Pokemon Legends Arceus?

Aux Powers are essentially Pokemon Legends Arceus’ equivalent of the X battle items. They function similarly to the likes of X Attack and X Defend, granting your Pokemon increased stats while it is in battle.

There are four in total:

  • Aux Guard – An item that sharply boosts the defensive stats of a Pokemon while in battle
  • Aux Power – An item that sharply boosts the offensive stats of a Pokemon while in battle.
  • Aux Evasion – Makes moves less likely to hit a Pokemon while in battle.
  • Aux Powerguard – An item that sharply boosts the offensive & defensive stats of a Pokemon while in battle.
