How to get Earth Form Shaymin on Pokemon Legends Arceus?

To hope to obtain Earth Form Shaymin  in Pokémon Legends Arceus, you must first meet certain conditions:

  • You must have a Pokémon Sword or Pokémon Shield backup on your Nintendo Switch console.
  • You must have completed the Pokemon Legends Arceus game. You must therefore have already arrived at the end credits of the game.

Once these conditions are met, you can access a research mission that you must complete in order to capture Shaymin (Earth Form). This mission will be available in Rusti-Cité.

For the moment, the details of this research mission are not yet known.
