The origin of the Link of Legends cable Pokémon Arceus and what creatures you can evolve with it

Pokémon Legends: Arceus / Pokémaster

With more than three decades of history behind it, Nintendo has provided us with all kinds of accessories to be able to enjoy our catalog of games even more. However, 20 years ago, the technology we know today did not exist, that’s why the Japanese company has developed a plugin to transfer data between two consoles. The cable connection allowed us to connect two Game Boy consoles with other devices, and was designed primarily for Pokémon games.

In these times, the Cable Link has moved on to a better life. Although many of us keep it as a gold cloth because it is an accessory that was part of our childhood, it is no longer available for official sale. Now, although the technology available to us has buried this type of additional supplements, we have discovered that tribute is paid to him through ‘Pokémon Legends: Arceus’‘.

The latest version of Game Freak for Nintendo Switch introduced several new features that revolutionized the saga, among which we discovered an item that players can use to evolve certain creatures. It’s nothing more or less than “Link Cable,” and it’s a clear reference to the Link Cable that boys and girls in the 90s used to transfer and evolve Pokemon.

What Pokémon can be evolved and where to find them?

Once upon a time there were pocket monsters they could evolve if exchanged via the Cable Link with another trainer. Only four creatures can evolve through trade in “Pokémon Legends: Arceus,” and while there are currently more than enough ways to do that, that’s also what makes the Link Cable so special. This is an alternative method that we can use to evolve into Kadabra, Machoke, Gravel and Haunter.

But where do we find this object that refers to the old Cable Link? One way to achieve this is to Simona’s Trading Post for a thousand merit points. On the other hand, it can also be found by pure chance smash minerals throughout the Hisui region or by defeating the Pokémon that appear. Also, if we perform the mission “Meet the Ghosts” we guarantee a Link cable as a reward.
