The waiting for Pokémon Legends: Arceus just became even more exciting as it’s been revealed that Trainers have the chance to run into the alpha Pokémon. These Pokémon have glowing red eyes and are larger and stronger. What really makes them different is their aggressive nature and no fear to chase and attack players who get too close.

For those hearing about Pokémon Legends: Arceus for the first time, it takes players to the Hisui region. This isn’t technically a new region but was Sinnoh in the past.

Special Pokémon

The region is also a home of special Pokémon that received some mysterious blessing. Some of them are said to be so powerful that they’re called nobles. Basically, they have powers not seen from regular Pokémon.

Though revered by the people living in the region, these nobles have suddenly been put into a frenzy as a result of a strange phenomenon. Because they’re difficult to control in this condition, the people have no choice but to ask for help from the Galaxy Expedition Team. As part of the Survey Corps, players are asked to help pacify the frenzied Pokémon nobles.

Use the Arc Phone

One thing that players can look forward to in their adventures is the Arc Phone. Those already familiar with Pokémon games would likely suspect that this device could have some connection to the Mythical Pokémon Arceus. Mysteriously, the device contains strange power that allows it to guide players.

Riding Pokémon

Another interesting thing about the game is an item called the Celestica Flute. When played, it summons Pokémon that lets players ride them. These include:

  • Wyrdeer
    • With its sturdy legs, riding this Pokémon allows players to travel across the land at great speed and even jump over obstacles.
  • Basculegion
    • This Pokémon can travel across bodies of water and can even launch itself from the surface of the water to leap over obstacles.
  • Hisuian Braviary
    • This Pokémon allows players to soar through the skies and from up in the air, players can see what Pokémon are on the ground.

So what do you think about this game so far?

Pokémon Legends: Arceus is scheduled to be released on January 28, 2022, on the Nintendo Switch.
