Hisui Region

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.
