As you dive into Pokemon Legends: Arceus, you may discover several types of in-game currencies. One of these is called Merit Points. They are useful for obtaining many important items. Here’s how to get Merit Points and what they’re used for in Pokemon Legends: Arceus.
How to Get Merit Points
Merit Points can be obtained by returning satchels to other real-life trainers who lost them. These satchels are found throughout the Hisui region, and once returned to the trainer, you are awarded Merit Points.
Satchels can be found on the Hisui overworld map. It is helpful to use a marker to pin where the satchel was dropped so you can head directly for it. Simply press A while standing in front of the lost satchel to pick it up and return it to the owner.
This won’t automatically award you with Merit Points, though. You’ll need to go into your wireless communication menu, select “Lost & Found,” and select the satchel you returned to claim your reward. Most lost satchels award between 50-100 points.
What Merit Points Are Used For
Merit Points can be spent at the Trading Outpost in Jubilife Village in the top right portion of the village. This can be used after completing four missions in the game’s main story.
By talking to the Trading Outpost trader Simona, you can tell her “I want to get items” and she will show you various items you can spend your MP on. Here are the items you can buy and how much they cost:
