Brave a Space-Time Distortion in Pokémon Legends Arceus, and you will soon start to collect coloured Shards that randomly appear on the ground within them. But, what are these items for? There are Red Shards, Blue Shards and Green Shards that you can retrieve, which you will need for two reasons in the game.
Their first use is to complete Colorful New Looks (Request No. 70), for which the clothier Anthe “wants to create clothes in new colors and has sent you in search of the materials she needs to do so.”
Your objective to achieve this is to gather one Red Shard, one Blue Shard and one Green Shard. This shouldn’t be too difficult for you to complete, especially if you have already been exploring the Space-Time Distortions that appear at random in each of the game’s locations. If you haven’t, then set out to explore them and start gathering the Shards that you require. Each Shard will appear as a random rare item drop on the ground and can be clearly seen on the ground with a warped blue-like colour.
The other purpose for Shards is to let you craft Star Pieces. The Star Piece crafting recipe can be purchased from Anvin at the Craftworks in Jubilife Village for 10,000 PokéDollars. To craft the recipe, each time you will need:
- 3 Red Shards
- 3 Blue Shards
- 3 Green Shards
- 1 Stardust
It will be a worthwhile investment, as the crafting recipe can be used to turn the Stardust that you will frequently collect into Star Pieces. That increases their sale value from 1,000 PokéDollars to 5,000 PokéDollars, soon becoming what can be a regular source of money that will be a great help to cover your costs when restocking your items or buying new recipes.
