Chimchar is a Sinnoh starter that can be quite hard to find in Pokemon Legends Arceus. The reason it is hard to come across is that even though there are 5 regions in the game you can only find it in one of them. And to make things harder it only spawns in specific areas at a certain time. So in this guide let us take a look at the location of Chimchar in Pokemon Legends Arceus and how to catch it.

How to Catch Chimchar

You can catch Chimchar by sneaking behind it and catching the with a back-strike. The ideal Pokeballs to use here would be.


  • Poke Ball
  • Great Ball
  • Ultra Ball

In order to distract it better, you can also throw its favorite foods near it. Note throw it next to Chimchar and not directly at it. Once it is focused on eating the food, throw the ball to catch it. Its favorite foods include:

And lastly, another important thing to remember is Chimchar is a Pokemon with Hasty nature. That means if you alert it, it will run away, so any chance of you catching it will also go away with it. If you do miss it then reset the area and try again.
