Pokemon Legends Arceus Cherrim is required for a fairly early request you'll receive in Jubilife Village, called To Bloom or Not to Bloom. Kichi, from the Agricultural Corps, wants to see the completed Pokedex entry for Cherrim. Problem is, when you first get this request in Pokemon Legends Arceus, you probably won't have seen a Cherubi, let alone the evolved form Cherrim, so far in Hisui. So how do you catch a Cherrim and complete To Bloom or Not to Bloom? Here's everything you need to know about Pokemon Legends Arceus Cherrim.

When you receive To Bloom or Not to Bloom from Kichi, chances are you've only been to the Obsidian Fieldlands. While Cherrim can be caught here, it's extremely rare and will take some grinding unless you get extremely lucky. As a result, it's recommended that you wait until you reach the fourth biome, the Coronet Highlands, because Cherrim can be found much more consistently there (specific locations are listed below).

You won't find Cherrim roaming around on the ground either, which is part of what makes catching one (or multiple) so difficult. Cherrim can only be found in trees that are shaking (learn more about these in our Pokemon Legends Arceus shaking trees and rocks guide), and is somewhat of a rare find in these too. Instead, you're much more likely to find a Cherubi, the pre-evolution of Cherrim.

Your best bet when trying to complete To Bloom or Not to Bloom is to catch a Cherubi and evolve it at level 25 into a Cherrim. Use Cherrim in battles and complete the required task to increase the research level and eventually fill out the Pokedex.

Pokemon Legends Arceus: Cherrim Locations

Here are all the locations you can find shaking trees which have a chance to contain Cherubi and Cherrim:

  • Obsidian Fieldlands
    • The Heartwood
  • Crimson Mirelands
    • Gapejaw Bog
  • Coronet Highlands
    • Lonely Spring
    • Fabled Spring
    • Primeval Grotto

Focus on shaking trees in these areas of the map and you'll find a Cherubi or Cherrim before too long. Struggling with another early game request? Here are all of the Pokemon Legends Arceus Bothersome Bidoof locations.
