Uxie’s trial in Pokemon Legends: Arceus is one of the weirder challenges in the entire series. But we can help you to complete it.

Pokemon games have never been afraid of testing their players’ general knowledge. Starting with Pokemon Red and Blue when players needed to answer trivia questions in the Cinnabar Island gym, the occasional pop quiz has been a very real possibility for players through the Pokemon series. This was seen as recently as Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl, with ghost-type gym leader Fantina asking players to break out a calculator.

But Uxie’s trial is something else entirely. Rather than the clumsy execution of walking through doors or multiple choice answers, players need to type an answer onto the Nintendo Switch’s pop-up keyboard. It doesn’t help that the quiz itself can be tricky. 

It’s ultimately a small speedbump on the road to the game’s ending. Here’s the answer to Uxie’s trial in Pokemon Legends: Arceus.

What is the answer to Uxie’s trial in Pokemon Legends: Arceus?

To complete Uxie’s trial in Pokemon Legends: Arceus, players simply need to type in the correct answer: 60131.

In theory, Uxie’s trial tasks players with remembering the appearances of five different Pokemon. Uxie asks the player how many eyes Combee, Zubat, Unown, Magneton, and Dusclops each have. They then need to type in the number of eyes for each Pokemon in as digits that make up a code.

Combee has six eyes, as it’s effectively three sections of a honeycomb with two eyes in each section. Zubat has no eyes. All forms of Unown have one massive eye. Magneton is made up of three Magnemites, with each Magnemite having one eye apiece, so that’s three overall. Finally, Dusclops is a monstrous cyclops with just one eye.

Alongside the pop quiz, Uxie’s trial also includes a battle against a level 56 alpha Hisuian Zoroark. Hisuian Zoroark has a tricky ghost-normal typing, but it’s weak against dark-type attacks. There’s no shortage of Pokemon that know either Bite or Crunch that can take it down in short order, but Zoroark has long been a fan favorite. Players that want to catch the Pokemon for themselves will have little trouble doing so.

While it didn’t get either the Noble Pokemon or ride treatment, Hisuian Zoroark is certainly one of the most memorable new Pokemon in the game.
