Pokemon Legends Arceus’ Alphas Make Evolution Less Significant for Some Fans

Many players joined on a Reddit thread to explain why Alpha Pokemon in Legends Arceus undermined the evolution process.

In a nutshell, players noted that these Alphas are sometimes the final evolution of many Pokemon, making regular Pokemon raised and evolved until final form somewhat redundant.

Additionally, some fans pointed out that items like the Link Cables were deemed useless due to Alpha Pokemon.

Legends Arceus allows players new ways to evolve Pokemon without the need for trading. But, according to these players’ complaints, this is pointless.

Gamers stated you could get an Alpha of the Pokemon you want in its final evolution instead of using Link Cables to get its final form.

Of course, there are opinions contrary to these statements. Some players affirm that you can only find some Alphas until later in the game. Thus, making the process of raising and evolving Pokemon worth it.
