Action Meets RPG as the Pokemon Series Reaches a New Frontier
Get ready for a new kind of grand, Pokemon adventure in Pokemon Legends: Arceus, a brand-new game from Game Freak that blends action and exploration with the RPG roots of the Pokemon series. Embark on survey missions in the ancient Hisui region. Explore natural expanses to catch wild Pokemon by learning their behavior, sneaking up, and throwing a well-aimed Poke Ball. You can also toss the Poke Ball containing your ally Pokemon near a wild Pokemon to seamlessly enter battle.
As the protagonist of this game, you’ll meet Professor Laventon, who studies the ecology of Pokemon as a member of the Galaxy Expedition Team. Before long, you’ll join the Galaxy Team yourself and get to work as a member of the Survey Corps. Your goal will be to meet every species of Pokemon in the region!
After receiving an assignment or a request and preparing for your next excursion, you’ll set out from Jubilife Village to study one of the various areas of the Hisui region. There may be certain Pokemon behaviors—or even entire species—that you witness only under the right conditions, such as during a particular time of day or in certain kinds of weather. Word has it that some Pokemon even act in ways that are unique to their species! Keep an eye on your health while out adventuring—take too much damage from wild Pokemon attacks or falling from high places and you’ll be unable to go on!
Battles in the Hisui region also have some unique properties. For the first time in the series, your Pokemon unleash moves with the speedy agile style or the powerful strong style. These styles might also affect how many turns Pokemon can take in a row!
Jubilife Village is the main base of your adventures in Pokemon Legends: Arceus. In Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Pokemon Shining Pearl, this village has grown to be the bustling Jubilife City. There are also characters in Pokemon Legends: Arceus who are ancestors of some familiar faces you may know.
Travel to the Hisui Region—The Sinnoh of Old—and Build the Region’s First Pokedex
Your adventure takes place in the expansive natural majesty of the Hisui region, where you are tasked with studying Pokemon to complete the region’s first Pokedex. Mount Coronet rises from the center, surrounded on all sides by areas with distinct environments. In this era—long before the events of the Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Pokemon Shining Pearl games—you can find newly discovered Pokemon like Wyrdeer, an evolution of Stantler, and new regional forms like Hisuian Growlithe! Along the way, uncover the mystery surrounding the Mythical Pokemon known as Arceus.
