Are you running out of satchel space in Pokémon Legends: Arceus? Here’s the complete guide to expanding and upgrading your satchel.
Pokémon Legends: Arceus is the latest entry in Game Freak’s long-running RPG series. The game is a refreshing reinvention for the series, but it still owes debts to many other games, including The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Monster Hunter and Skyrim.
However, for all of its new – and borrowed – ideas, there’s one pain point that can be traced back decades: a lack of storage space.
Satchel storage space is super important in Pokémon Legends: Arceus. In addition to the various Pokéball types that you need to capture Pokémon, you also need to carry other handy items such as potions, berries, veggies, and candy. And throughout your adventure, you’re constantly picking up additional goodies from rocks, trees, and battles. It all takes up precious space in your satchel.
Fortunately, there’s a simple – but easily overlooked – way to expand your inventory so you can take more items on your adventure.
How to increase storage in Pokémon Legends: Arceus
Early on in Pokémon Legends: Arceus, you’ll arrive at the Galaxy Team headquarters in Jubilife Village. After the first visit, you can speak to the man standing outside Cyllene’s office. Rather wonderfully, his name is Bagin. (It’s short for Bag Increase, we suppose.)
Bagin will increase your satchel storage up to 37 times – for a price. The first expansion costs a mere 500 in Pokémon currency. The price increases for every subsequent upgrade, topping out an eye-watering 1 million for the final expansion.
Fortunately, money is easy to come by in Pokémon Legends: Arceus. You can earn cash in multiple ways, but the easiest method is to register captured Pokémon and sell items. Crafting and selling Star Pieces is particularly fruitful way to make money fast.
The more cash you have, the larger your satchel can be, the more items you can hold, and the more you can sell. What a wonderful gameplay loop.
