A bold new direction for the Pokémon series
Pokémon Legends: Arceus takes the Pokémon series in a bold new direction by fusing action with RPG elements. The game takes place long before the events of Pokémon Diamond Version and Pokémon Pearl Version in the Sinnoh region. Your journey begins in traditional fashion by letting you pick your first Pokémon partner in either Rowlet, Cyndaquil, or Oshawott.
Your goal is to create and complete the region’s first Pokédex by catching, surveying, and researching the wild Pokémon that live there. To catch wild Pokémon, you’ll have to study their behaviours, sneak up to them and then throw your Poké Ball. Additionally, you can battle wild Pokémon with your ally Pokémon. To provide Trainers with an immersive experience, you’ll seamlessly enter battle by throwing a Poké Ball holding your ally Pokémon near a wild Pokémon.
Pokémon Legends: Arceus launches January 2022
If you’re waiting to get your hands on Pokémon Legends: Arceus, like I am, you’ll be able to do so on January 28, 2022 when it launches on Nintendo Switch. Let me know in the comments section below if you’ll be picking up Pokémon Legends: Arceus and what games you’ll be playing to help pass the time until launch.
