While traversing the open world of the newly released Pokemon Legends: Arceus, you are going to be catching a bunch of Pokemon, meaning that you are quickly going to get more than the six Pokemon that you can carry in your party at any given time. This coupled with the fact that you will need to capture multiple of the same Pokemon to fill out the Pokedex entry, it will be essential to know how to release them. At the start of the game, you have to release Pokemon one at a time, but there is a feature known as a mass release that will allow you to select multiple Pokemon to let go all at the same time. This guide will explain how to mass release Pokemon in Pokemon Legends: Arceus.
How To Mass Release Pokemon In Pokemon Legends: Arceus
To mass release your Pokemon, you have to go to the Pastures in Jubilife Village. Pastures are where you can store Pokemon that are not in your party, with players starting the game with eight pastures, with each one being able to carry a total of 30 Pokemon. To use the Pastures talk to the NPC named Marie. Here is where you will be able to use the Pastures, but the ability to do a mass release isn’t immediately available. To gain to ability, you will need to fill up at least four of the Pastures, at which point Marie will let you know that you now have the option to release multiple Pokemon at once.
Once this option is unlocked, when you organize the Pastures, the X button prompt in the bottom right of the screen will say “Release Multiple.” Press X, and you will be able to select multiple Pokemon, signified with a yellow checkmark. Once you have selected the Pokemon that you want to release, simply press X again, and you will release mass release all selected Pokemon.
