A new kind of adventure blends action and exploration with the RPG roots of the Pokémon series in the Pokémon Legends: Arceus game, available now exclusively for the Nintendo Switch family of systems. You can learn more about the game by reading below.


In Pokémon Legends: Arceus you can embark on survey missions in the ancient Hisui region and explore natural expanses to catch wild Pokémon by learning their behavior, sneaking up, and throwing a well-aimed Poké BallTM. You can also toss the Poké Ball containing your ally Pokémon near a wild Pokémon to seamlessly enter battle.


Your adventure takes place in the expansive natural majesty of the Hisui region, where you are tasked with studying Pokémon to complete the region’s first Pokédex. Mount Coronet rises from the center, surrounded on all sides by areas with distinct environments. In this era—long before the events of the Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Pokémon Shining Pearl games—you can find newly discovered Pokémon like Wyrdeer, an evolution of Stantler, and new regional forms like Hisuian Growlithe, Hisuian Zorua, and Hisuian Zoroark! Along the way, you can uncover the mystery surrounding the Mythical Pokémon known as Arceus.
