Pokemon Legends: Arceus Spiritomb Wisp Location Guide

February 3, 2022

By: Robert Grosso

 
 

Pokemon Legends: Arceus is a game where half of the fun is exploring the landscape to see what you can find. With plenty of wild Pokemon to encounter and tons of little secrets here and there, it's no wonder GameFreak decided to really test your exploration skills with a few of their in-game requests.

One of the biggest and most involved challenges is a request to discover 107 ghostly wisps across all six maps of the game. Directly tied to the lore of the Ghost/Dark-type Spiritomb, Uncovering all 107 wisps is no easy task. Luckily, this guide will show you where every single wisp in the game is, along with some tips and tricks on how to hunt for them!

 

Pokemon Legends: Arceus - Request #22 Eerie Apparitions in the Night. 

Pokemon Legends Arceus Wisp Guide Vessa
Vessa only appears at night, so keep that in mind when turning in wisps.

You can't start hunting for the wisps until you advance into the story a bit, by beating the first Pokemon Lord, Kleavor, in the Obsidian Fieldlands. After that, you will get a cutscene from a young girl named Vessa, who will tell you all about these wisps and give you the odd keystone. She then has you go on to collect one automatically, so you can't miss it.

After the first wisp, Vessa will task you with Request #22, Eerie Apparitions in the Night. Requests are optional quests found in Pokemon Legends: Arceus, and without a doubt, this one is probably the longest in the game. Your goal is to capture a total of 106 more wisps for Vessa, whom you can return to receive rewards for every ten wisps you give her. 

 
 

The rewards are as follows:

  • 5 Wisps - Oval Stone
  • 10 Wisps - Rare Candy
  • 20 Wisps - Seed of Mastery
  • 30 Wisps - Dusk Stone
  • 40 Wisps - Exp Candy L
  • 50 Wisps - Linking Cord
  • 60 Wisps - 5 Grit Pebbles
  • 70 Wisps - Reaper Cloth
  • 80 Wisps -  3 Seed of Mastery
  • 90 Wisps - 2 Exp Candy XL
  • 100 Wisps - 3 Grit Rock

Pokemon Legends: Arceus - Wisp Hunting Basics 

Pokemon Legends Arceus Wisp Guide Sneasler
Sneasler is vital in collecting all of the wisps.

So hunting wisps is surprisingly easier than it looks, though it will take some time. Also, depending on where you are in the game, several wisps may be inaccessible to you unless you progress through the main storyline first. You will eventually need access to all six in-game locations.

 
 

Here are some pointers to help make fulfilling the request easier.

  • With the exception of the seven located in Jubilife Villiage, every other location has 20 wisps to find. 
  • Wisps are easier to spot at night, even from further distances away due to their purplish glow. You should consider hunting for them at night as during the day they disappear unless you get super close to them. The trade-off is that most nocturnal Pokemon are super aggressive, but they can be avoided most of the time if you're quick and careful.
  • Consider waiting to grab wisps until you have access to some of the Pokemon that help you travel, most notably Wyrdeer, Basculegion, and especially Sneasler. Basculegion and Sneasler are essential to gathering most of the wisps in the game, as a lot of them are found on steep cliffs or hidden islands across multiple maps. 
  • You can use Braviary to traverse the landscape faster and search for wisps from the sky, and to access areas the aforementioned travel Pokemon can normally get to.
  • It's easiest to get all wisps on a map at once, so you don't have to pull your hair out grabbing wisps on multiple trips.
  • If you see a wisp but plan on leaving a map eventually, leave a sticker or ping for it on your minimap on the Arc phone. 

The tips above will make wisp hunting much easier and faster, but be ready to invest time into hunting down all of the wisps. Most maps take an hour to two hours to complete. 

Pokemon Legends: Arceus - All 107 Wisp Locations

Well, time to get hunting.

Well, here is the main event, the locations of all 107 wisps in the game. 

The lists below will be accompanied by a map showing all wisp locations on there, with a description of the area they are found in. The description will include some landmarks, objects to look out for, and if you need a Pokemon to access it. It will end with the region it's in, or the closest landmark it's near.

Pokemon Legends: Arceus - Accessing Spiritomb

Pokemon Legends Arceus Wisp Guide Spiritomb
Be prepared as Spiritomb will be relentless when it spawns. 

Once you collect all the wisps and report back to Vessa (who only shows up at night) she will ask you to come to the Crimson Mirelands at the Shrouded Ruins in the far north. You need to go there at night, where a cutscene will play in front of a strange statue that looks like Spiritomb's base. Vessa will speak to you for a moment, before revealing she has the 108 wisp and disappears. 

After the cutscene ends, you will complete the Request and receive a reward of Twice-Spiced Radish. You then simply approach the statue to investigate it, then a level 60 Spiritomb will attack. 

It is here you can capture the Spiritomb for the first time. After this encounter, it becomes a rare spawn in this location in the Shrouded Ruins, and can spawn as a Shiny or Alpha version of itself.
 


And there you have it, the request is complete, Spiritomb is now catchable, and all of the wisps in the game are found. Pokemon Legends: Arceus is still full of little secrets to discover, and hopefully this guide will help you in solving this quest so you can find more hidden things on your own journey.
