Pokémon Legends: Arceus reportedly has a level 100 post-game superboss, leakers claim

It’s stronger than any Pokémon used by an in-game trainer so far.

A group of Pokémon leakers known as PoryLeeks, all of whom appear to have obtained pre-release copies of Pokémon Legends: Arceus, claimed on Monday that Legends: Arceus would feature a post-game boss fight against a level 100 Arceus.

PoryLeeks alleged that Arceus, who is reportedly the game’s final boss, would be level 100 upon rematching it. Leaked footage seems to indicate that the Alpha Pokémon is level 75 during the first encounter with it. The group also claimed that while you can rematch a higher-level Arceus at your leisure, you wouldn’t be able to exploit this to capture multiple versions of the ‘Mon.

Several leakers have claimed that the Arceus boss fight is only available once one has filled out the entirety of Pokémon Legends: Arceus’ Pokédex. The fight is reportedly quite difficult as well. PoryLeeks previously claimed the initial boss battle — at which Arceus was level 75 — took nearly 20 minutes to complete.

It should be noted that this information was derived from folks who have allegedly obtained pre-release copies of Pokémon Legends: Arceus, and has not been confirmed by Nintendo, The Pokémon Company, or Game Freak. Furthermore, we were not able to independently confirm this information, as we do not currently have access to the unreleased title.

The Pokémon series is known for its brutal post-game challenges. Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl’s second rematch with Cynthia has been lauded by Pokémon fans as one of the hardest battles in the series and is headlined by a level 88 Garchomp.

If PoryLeeks’ claim is to be believed, this level 100 Arceus would be the highest-level Pokémon encountered throughout the entire series — tied only with a level 100 wild Magikarp that has a slim chance of popping up in Pokémon Platinum, Black 2, and White 2.
