Pokémon Legend: Arceus almost reached us as the upcoming entry in the long-running series hits the Nintendo Switch on January 28. To set the stage, a new trailer has revealed some game trainers can look forward to. wait while jumping into the ancient Sinnoh.
The trailer, currently only in Japanese, is about 6 minutes long and introduces quite a bit of gameplay for those looking forward to it Arceus. Mainly, the trailer introduces how you catch pocket monsters in the world, as well as introduces you to some of the Sinnoh – now known as the Hisui region in its more ancient state – and its inhabitants.
While the world of Pokémon Legend: Arceus will see players run around and throw orbs filled with magical monsters at Pokémon, things won’t be that simple. Some Pokémon will fight back, and like always, you may need to weaken your quarry before you can catch them.
To choose the Pokémon you want to use to weaken the opponent’s monster, simply select one from your list and throw the PokéBall at the wild monster. The battle will follow and it looks like it’s going to be the same battles in the previous games – it’s turn-based and while the animations have been a bit more alive, the video is still reminiscent of past Pokémon games.
However, it won’t be too simple to catch a Pokémon as you will need to sneak in some or in other cases, avoid attacks that come your way. The most lasting image from the trailer for me wasn’t the shiny Pokémon running away, but the furious Snorlax charging at the character. Fuel nightmare.
Other changes were shown in the trailer for Pokémon Legend: Arceus, such as new farms to take care of your Pokémon instead of PC boxes to store the ones you don’t use. The trailer also gives a brief introduction to the types of places where you start your journey in a particular region.
It’s worth a try, though be warned that the intro dub and everything on screen is in Japanese. Without a doubt, Nintendo will release an English version leading to Pokémon Legend: Arceus launching the Nintendo Switch later this month, but for now you can check out the trailer in the embed above.
