All Aux Powers and how to craft them in Pokémon Legends: Arceus

The new Battle Items do more than just boost stats.

When designing Pokémon Legends: Arceus, Game Freak had to spend a lot of time building out the lore of what became the ancient version of Sinnoh, the Hisui region. And since the entire game takes place in the distant past, a lot of items that players have grown accustomed to had to be replaced due to the lack of technology present in the time in which the game takes place. 

Items that couldn’t make the trip to the past were modernized Battle Items, like X Attack or X Defend, which had to be altered so they didn’t appear factory manufactured. Instead of the Battle Items players typically use to boost a Pokémon’s stats during battle, we now have the Aux Powers and a few other Battle Effect items that can be naturally crafted. And instead of boosting single stats, most of them boost multiple stats or have secondary effects that replicate the effects of other items that aren’t featured in Legends: Arceus. 

All of these items can be crafted or found in a multitude of other places around the region. All of them are one-time use consumables that can only be used in battle, with their effects ending as soon as the Pokémon experiencing the boost is returned to its Poké Ball. 

If you feel like you might need a boost in battle to even the odds, here are all of the crafting recipes for the Aux Powers and other Battle Items.
