Charizard, Blastoise, and Venusaur are some of the most popular Pokemon in history, but are they in Pokemon Legends: Arceus?

We’ve been choosing between Charmander, Squirtle, and Bulbasaur for over 25 years now. The original Kanto starter Pokemon are present in almost every mainline game to date.

And it’s actually possible to catch starter Pokemon in Legends: Arceus – provided you know where to look.

On top of that, the game lets you choose from 3 varied starter Pokemon of its own, all taken from previous titles but with unique final evolutions.

But is it possible to find the iconic trio in Pokemon Legends: Arceus?

Can You Find Charmander, Squirtle, or Bulbasaur in Pokemon Legends: Arceus?

Unfortunately, Charmander, Squirtle, and Bulbasaur (and therefore Charizard, Blastoise, and Venusaur) are not present in Pokemon Legends: Arceus… yet.

Despite the popularity of the original Kanto starters, none appear in Pokemon Legends: Arceus to date. However, this could soon change.

After all, a new leak reveals 158 new Pokemon coming to Pokemon Legends: Arceus as DLC this year!

We imagine if select Pokemon are coming to the game in the new DLC expansion, the Gen 1 starters are almost certainly on the way. What’s more, it seems that Mega Evolution could be coming to Legends: Arceus too!

Charmander, Squirtle, or Bulbasaur

This could be the perfect tie-in for the Kanto starters as Charizard, Blastoise, and Venusaur all have unique mega forms.
