Pokémon Legends: Arceus is set in the distant past when humans and Pokémon mostly live separate lives. The new trailer gives us the best look at the game so far including how humans and Pokémon interacted during the early days of the Sinnoh region.
Before the land was called Sinnoh, it was first called Hisui, and there are various Hisui region Pokémon forms to discover. There will also be several other brand new Pokémon, too, including Wyrdeer, the final evolution of Stantler.
The trailer also reveals the battle system will be slightly different from usual. Players can use two versions of Pokémon attacks to favor speed or power during a fight. In addition to this, wild Pokémon will attack you directly if you don’t have a Pokémon to battle for you.
Pokémon Legends: Arceus will release for Nintendo Switch on January 28, 2022.
