In Pokemon Scarlet and Violet, you want to get any and all advantages to help you in combat encounters. And through it all, the Pokemon games are all just a numbers game. The Pokemon with the highest stats, IV, and EV tends to win. It’s no surprise that the breeding game is so lucrative and players might spend even more time they do on shiny hunting just to get the perfect IV Pokemon. That being said, there are a number of items throughout the Pokemon games that can boost and bolster certain stats and abilities – leading to more advantageous leads in a battle. That’s what leads us to this exact question: where can you find a Life Orb in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet?
Pokemon Scarlet And Violet: What Is A Life Orb?
Simply put, the Life Orb is an item to be held by a Pokémon. It boosts the power of the holder’s moves, but the holder also loses a small amount of HP with each attack it lands. But when it comes to one-hitting your opponent, your own health hardly matters if you can end the encounter before it’s even really begun. That’s why the Life Orb is considered meta in the current state of the game and can be highly advantageous for your team and primary Pokemon.
How To Get A Life Orb In Pokemon Scarlet And Violet
There are two main methods to getting a Life Orb in-game. You can either buy one for 50,000 or you can find one. Meaning there are at least two in-game you can use. Of course, finding one is significantly better than cashing out your hard-earned money.
Buying a Life Orb
You can find one at the Delibird Present Shop in Mesagoza. However, you should know that this item is only available once you have completed all the paths in the game. That includes Victory Road, Starfall Street, and Path of Legends.
Finding a Life Orb
Alternatively, you can find a Life Orb. You’ll need to head to a lone island located on the West of the Casseroya Lake (Islet). There on this island, you’ll be able to find the Life Orb in front of a small rock and beneath a tree. This is the only way you can find the Life Orb before completing the paths in-game.
There you have it, how to get a hold of your own Life Orb in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet, be sure to make good use of it!
