Pokemon Legends Arceus [Daybreak] - The Ultimate Balloon Race
Here's our best attempt at the hardest balloon race in the Daybreak DLC for Pokemon Legends Arceus. Good luck to everyone attempting this challenge!
Compared to the previous three Balloon Races, the difficulty gap is immense. Unless you have great reflexes, do not expect to clear this request on your first attempt.
For this race, you’ll need to use every ride Pokémon at your disposal, well, except Ursaluna. Also, given the tight time limit, you will need to dash at max speed for most of the course. However, while gliding in the air, you should travel at normal speed except for right near the end.
The course will begin with a trail of balloons going eastward along the Sacred Plaza. At the very beginning, aim for the balloon near the left first, because the one along the middle will move backwards. Near the end of the plaza, you will go past the alpha Luxray.
Around this part, you’ll need to jump off the ledge and press at the highest point of your jump to glide with Braviary. Otherwise you’ll miss the next couple of balloons in the air. While gliding, do not dash. After popping the 3rd balloon while gliding, immediately divebomb towards the 4th and 5th balloons.
From here, it’s back to the ground for some more Wyrdeer action, as you dash past the alpha Gabite. However, be prepared to do another ledge jump and transition to Braviary. After popping the 2nd balloon while gliding, divebomb ASAP to hit the 3rd balloon, then try your best to dive through the other balloons towards the ground. You may need to briefly return to neutral position (for half a second) to avoid going under some of the balloons
You’ll be at Celestica Trail, heading westward through the alpha Steelix’s territory. This short segment is fairly simple, although the camera transition can be a pain. Near the end, you’ll approach a cliff on the right side. When you reach the ledge, do another Wyrdeer jump transitioning to Braviary. You should gain just enough height to reach the upper ledge.
Next, ram into the cliff on the right and press to switch to Sneasler, so you can climb up the cliff, popping the few balloons along the way. At the top of the cliff, press or exactly two times to switch back to Wyrdeer. Then proceed forward through the Primeval Grotto, where an alpha Probopass lurks. This small section is again pretty standard, although the small trees can obscure your vision.
For the final stretch, you’ll automatically switch to Basculegion when you touch the lake. Remember that you can double jump with Basculegion. This will be important when you reach the end of the lake/the top of the waterfall. Double jump with Basculegion, then switch to Braviary with . You need to perform both the second jump and the Braviary transition at the peak of each jump.
Finally, glide through the next 3 balloons without dashing. Then dash towards and through the second set of 3 balloons further away. After hitting the third balloon from the second set, immediately divebomb and aim towards the final 6 balloons. If you kept up the speed, you should hit the water with a few seconds to spare. Otherwise you’re liable to time out earlier than that.
Reward for Request 105
For completing this request, you’ll receive 5 Nuggets. Additionally, you can receive a variety of prizes depending on the number of balloons you’ve popped, such as Aguav Berries, Sticky Globs, Jet Balls, etc.
However, unless you’re a masochist or genuinely enjoyed this balloon race, you’re much better off obtaining these items through other means…
