Battle System Reveals

Catch Wild Pokemon Without Battling

Not much was revealed about the battle system of Pokemon Legends: Arceus, other than the mechanics of wild encounters. Here, the player doesn't need to enter a battle with a wild Pokemon to catch it. Sneak up to a wild Pokemon and simply throw a PokeBall directly at it to try and capture it. Enter a battle with the wild Pokemon only if you want to weaken it and increase your chances of capture.

Seamless Battle Entry

The game promises a seamless transition from wild area exploration to battle with the wild Pokemon. Simply throw a PokeBall containing one of your Pokemon near a wild Pokemon, and it will trigger a seamless transition into battle.

Is Battle Turn-Based?

At the moment, it's most likely the battle system will be turn-based. The gameplay footage shows the player's ally Pokemon and the wild Pokemon standing off as the player chooses between four of their ally Pokemon's learned moves, just like in the mainline games.

Battle System: Are There Trainer Battles?

At this point, it's unknown whether or not there are trainer battles in Pokemon Legends: Arceus. The description of the game sets this game at a time prior to the emergence of Pokemon Trainers and the Pokemon League, so it seems like the game will be more focused on discovering Pokemon and filling out the Pokedex, than encountering and fighting rival trainers.
