Pokémon Legends: Arceus

Pokémon Legends: Arceus, a game created by GAME FREAK for the Nintendo Switch system, takes players on an adventure through the world of Sinnoh in the past. Explore the globe while collecting Pokémon and filling your Pokédex has always been a fundamental aspect of the Pokémon series’ gameplay, and it remains so today.

As you travel through the game’s vast natural landscapes, you’ll come across the Pokémon that call these vast panoramas their home. To catch Pokémon, you can observe them to discover their habits, then cautiously sneak up on them while aiming your Poké Ball at them and letting it fly. You can also use your ally Pokémon to battle wild Pokémon that you aim to capture in order to get experience points. If you throw the Poké Ball containing your ally Pokémon in the direction of a wild Pokémon, you will enter fight effortlessly. When the battle begins, you will command your Pokémon by selecting one of its known moves from a list. This innovative approach to gameplay provides an immersive, intimate experience of a world brought to life by Pokémon and people alike through the use of augmented reality technology. ​

Embark on a journey into the past

The enormous Sinnoh region, which is abundant in natural beauty and boasts Mount Coronet as its focal point, served as the backdrop for the Pokémon games Pokémon Diamond and Pokémon Pearl. Pokémon Legends: Arceus transports you back in time to the Sinnoh region as it once existed before the events of the game.

The storey takes place in a long-ago era, before concepts such as becoming a Pokémon Trainer or being a member of a Pokémon League were even considered.

The region of Sinnoh is unlike any other region you may be familiar with from the days of Pokémon Diamond and Pokémon Pearl, with Pokémon roaming wild in harsh surroundings that make for a Sinnoh unlike any other.

During the course of this game, you’ll embark on a journey to capture, survey, and research wild Pokémon in order to compile the first Pokédex for the region.

​Pokémon are at the heart of the narrative.

As you begin your trip, you will be able to select a companion from the following three characters: Rowlet, Cyndaquil, and Oshawott. Those three Pokémon were brought in by a Pokémon Professor, who had previously seen them in various locations throughout the course of his investigations.

Arceus, a Pokémon from the world of Pokémon, holds the key to this storey. Arceus is credited with creating everything that exists in this universe. What is the relationship between this tremendous Mythical Pokémon and your journey? ​
