Ahead of the release of Pokémon's first sandbox adventure game, Pokémon Legends: Arceus, various leaks and rumors are already surrounding it. These leaks and rumors will only increase and increase as we get closer to launching the game on January 28 on the Nintendo Switch. Here we will analyze and share the most significant leaks surrounding the Arceus PokéDex, the starter Pokémon you can choose, the new Hisuian evolutions, and much more.
Much of this information will come from information shared online by various leakers, and for that reason, we highly recommend those who don't wish to be spoiled avoid this article. Also, a lot of this information has to be taken with a grain of salt as it comes from leakers and we have no practical knowledge before the game is properly released.
Forms of Hisuian Pokémon
According to a handful of leakers, there will be a total of 17 forms of Pokémon Hisuian appearing in the game. These modules will provide new looks and typing for several Pokémon. These points include the initial form and its evolution. A handful of these forms have already been revealed, such as Hisuian Zorua and Zoroark, Hisuian Voltorb, Hisuian Growlithe, and a handful of others. Presumably, the leakers have hinted at a Hisuian Goodra form, along with the forms of the initial evolutions.
Starting Pokémon and final evolutions
The three starter Pokémon that you can choose to start the game with include Rowlett, Cyndaquill, or Oshawott. Although they will continue to have their standard initial forms, they will presumably receive unique Hisuian forms. Cyndaquill's Typhlosion will apparently be a Fire and Ghost type, Rowlett's Decidueye will presumably be a Grass and Fighting type, and the final evolution of Oshawott's Samurott will presumably be a Water and Dark type Pokémon.
These modules will presumably come with iconic appearances, which leakers may have already shared online.
Size of the Hisuian PokéDex
Since Pokémon Legends will be a sandbox adventure game, the PokéDex is supposedly significantly smaller than previous entries. Many of the leakers would share the entire PokéDex through a Google Drive format, and a total of 242 whole Pokémon make it up.
Viaggio at tempo
Someone received a physical copy of Pokémon Legends 10 days before the game's release and contacted a handful of leakers. The leakers shared several images provided by the individual who had the game. The opening introduction detailed that the protagonist would be drawn into the world of Acreus beyond time and space. Many fans believe this is why Pokémon Legends takes place in Hisui, a region that will eventually become Sinnoh, suggesting that some time travel is involved. The original images were posted on Twitter but were removed shortly after.
All this information has been provided and shared through various leakers. We recommend taking this information with a grain of salt as we cannot confirm it ourselves. We will get our hands on Pokémon Legends: Arceus when it launches on Nintendo Switch.
