Pokemon Let's Go Articuno - How to Catch Articuno in Pokemon Let’s Go Pikachu and Eevee

Here's our guide on where to find Articuno in Pokemon Let's Go Pikachu and Eevee.

Although they're few and far between, you can track down some legendary creatures in Pokemon Let's Go Pikachu and Eevee. One of these legendary creatures is Articuno, and they're actually not too far off the beaten path. In our Pokemon Let's Go Articuno guide, we'll be walking you through how to find Articuno in Pokemon Let's Go.

Where to Find Articuno in Pokemon Let’s Go

To reach Articuno, you’ll need to head to Seafoam Islands, which are located on the southern edge of the map of Pokemon Let’s Go. To get here however, you’ll need to have firstly obtained the Sea Skim technique from the Pokemon Go Park Complex in Fuschia City, before returning the Gold Teeth to the Safari Park warden, to get the Strong Push technique.

With both abilities in hand for your starter Pokemon, head out to see on Route 19, going south from Fuschia City. Now head west onto Route 20, and you’ll eventually come to a cave on an island, called Seafoam Islands. Within this cave, you need to work your way downwards, pushing stone pillars so that they repeatedly fall down holes, allowing you to surf on the water at the bottom level of the cave with ease.

On the very bottom level of the caves, you can find Articuno. To capture the creature, you’ll firstly need to take it down in combat, which you can easily do with Pikachu’s Thunderbolt attack.

After this, you’ll need to capture Articuno using Poke Balls. Make sure to take a decent amount of Ultra Balls or Great Balls with you, in order to maximize your chance of bagging the legendary bird Pokemon. Keep in mind that you’ve only got 5 minutes in total to defeat and then capture Articuno, before it vanishes, and you’ll have to exit the caves and try the whole process all over again.

And with this, you know everything that you need to take down and capture Articuno. You can now continue ahead to any of our additional guides on Pokemon Let’s Go Pikachu and Eevee, such as how to make an excellent throw, or how to find Charmander in Pokemon Let’s Go.
