Pokemon Legends: Arceus is set in the Hisui region, long before the events of Pokemon Diamond and Pearl take place. The player will encounter the old and new Pokemon but in more open and exciting new environments. The player will begin their adventure at a time when being a Pokemon Trainer was rare. They'll craft and wield Pokeballs made out of resources from the region, which promises a fresh new take on the staple mechanic.
Players can encounter new Pokemon that makes Hisui Region their home. Expect to meet brand new evolutions of Pokemon from previous games and regional variants that are exclusive to Legends: Arceus.
|New Regional Variants|
|Hisuian Growlithe||Hisuian Braviary||Hisuian Zorua|
|Hisuian Zoroark||Hisuian Voltorb||-|
The player will roam the wild, observing and studying the Pokemon before attempting to catch it. The player travels across the Hisui region with the goal of building the region's first Pokedex. As always, the player is accompanied by a Starter Pokemon of their choice, with the choices this go around being the Grass Pokemon Rowlet, the Fire Pokemon Cyndaquil, and the Water Pokemon Oshawott - all different Starters from different regions.
Battles are a little different in Pokemon Legends: Arceus. Pokemon can still learn up to four moves, but this time its stats and Style will be a factor in the order moves are executed!
|Strong Style||Agile Style|
As the player progresses through their journey, they will uncover the legend of Arceus, the origin of the Sinnoh region, and perhaps even of the entire Pokemon world.
