Explore the Old Sinnoh Region

Pokemon Legends: Arceus is set in the Sinnoh region, long before the events of Pokemon Diamond and Pearl take place. The player gets to encounter the Pokemon they've met in those games but in more uncivilized and exciting new environments. The player will begin their adventure at a time when being a Pokemon Trainer was rare. They'll wield PokeBalls made out of primitive wood, which promise a fresh new take on the staple mechanic.

Observe and Catch Pokemon

The player will roam the wild, observing and studying the Pokemon before attempting to catch it. The player travel the 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.

Uncover Arceus
