Pokémon Legends: Arceus
A brand new trailer for the upcoming open world Pokémon RPG was also unveiled during the live event.
Pokémon Legends: Arceus takes place in a new region called Hisui, resembling the Edo Japan era where it was rare for people to live in harmony alongside Pokémon.
Unlike most of the previous Pokémon titles, Pokémon Legends: Arceus takes an action-RPG approach to the game where the players are able to stealthily approach wild Pokémon and throw a pokeball in order to catch them. However, players are also vulnerable to damage from the wild Pokémon and the character can pass out after taking too much damage.
There are two different styles of combat moves available to the Pokémon, strong style and agile style. Using a move in strong style will increase the power but the Pokémon will suffer from reduced action speed. The agile style moves will increase the action speed of the Pokémon while decreasing the power of the move.
The Hisui region has it’s own variations of different types of Pokemon such as Wyrdeer, Bascluin and Hisuian Growlithe.
Pokémon Legends: Arceus is releasing on January 28, 2022.
