Pokemon Legends Arceus Incarnate Forces of Hisui is an endgame request that leads you to the legendary Pokemon Tornadus, Thundurus, Landorus, and the brand new Enamorus. 

Pokemon Legends Arceus brings back the Forces of Nature Pokemon in a big way. Catching these Legendary Pokemon is a request that becomes available toward the very end of the game. Here is everything you need to know to complete the Incarnate Forces of Hisui and catch yourself a Tornadus, Landorus, Thundurus, and Enamorus.

Pokemon Legends Arceus Forces of Hisui: How To Start

To begin this quest, you need to have collected all of the plates and defeated the boss at the Temple of Sinnoh. After this, head back to Jubilife Village.

After a conversation with Professor Laventon, head to Galaxy Hall and you will be greeted by Cogita, here she will tell you there are more legendary Pokemon out there for you to catch, and give you details about the Forces of Nature.

With clues on where to find Landorus, Tornadus, and Thundurus, it's time to head out and track them down. Before you do, be sure to stock up on items like smoke bombs and sticky globs, as these Pokemon can be difficult to nail down.

Landorus is the least complicated to find, so we'll start here.

Go to the Obsidian Fieldlands, and head for Ramanas Island in the southwest. It's a small island so it shouldn't take you too long to find Landorus. They are easy to spot, as are the other Forces of Nature, due to the large tornado surrounding them. this tornado acts as a shield to block any Pokeballs you throw, so there's no catching these unaware.

Landorus can move all around the island, so try to catch it away from some of the troublesome - and powerful - Pokemon nearby. There is an Alpha Infernape at the centre of the island, so avoid that.

Thankfully, there is plenty of grass to hide in, so stick to those patches and move in. Once in range, hit Landorus with a sticky glob to stun it, then quickly throw a Pokemon to battle and catch it.

Be warned though, you have to be quick, as when Landorus recovers it will run a mile.

Thundurus haunts the Cobalt Coastlands, but not all the time. To make Thundurus appear, you need a thunderstorm.

To induce a thunderstorm, head to the Coastlands Camp, then use the tent to move time forward. Move from morning to noon, noon to evening, and so on until it starts lashing rain.

You can double-check it is a storm by referencing the map, if there is a storm cloud in the top left corner then you are ready to go.

Head north from the camp into the sea, past the massive arch. Around where the Gyarados appear, you should find Thundurus. Again, it stands out with its tornado shield.

Sneaking up on Thundurus is basically impossible without using smoke bombs, so use plenty of them to get close. You can get within lock-on distance using smoke bombs, so do that and hit it with something to break the shield. When the shield is down, throw a Pokemon to start the battle and catch Thundurus.

Tornadus appears in the Alabaster Icelands, and like Thundurus it has certain requirements. For Tornadus to appear, you need a blizzard. Use the same technique as with Thundurus to make time move forward and change the weather until you have what you need. Regular snowing isn't enough, you need heavy snow and wind effects before you have a full-on blizzard.

When the blizzard begins, head north from the starting camp to Bonechill Wastes. About halfway through this area, around the place where the giant Alpha Glalie appears, you will find Tornadus.

Like Landorus, Tornadus is surrounded by powerful Pokemon that can interfere in your mission. Unlike Landorus, there are no good places to hide. Use smoke bombs to get close to Tornadus, stun it, and commence battle to catch it.

After catching the three Forces of Nature, you need to get each of them to research level 10 in your Pokedex. Once you have done so, head to Cogita's house. She will tell you there is a fourth Force of Nature Pokemon and introduce you to Enamorus. After this Enamorus can be sought out and caught.

To find Enamorus, head to the Crimson Mirelands. Enamorus is found in the Scarlet Bog, seemingly at any time and in any weather. It is just as difficult to catch as the others, so come prepared. Use smoke bombs, get close, stun it, and battle.

Once done, you will have all four Forces of Nature Pokemon and the request is complete.

That is everything you need to know to complete the Forces of Hisui request and catch Tornadus, Thundurus, Landorus and Enamorus. For more helpful tips on succeeding in Hisui, check out Pokemon Legends Arceus Shiny Hunting: How To Shiny Hunt In Hisui!
