Players will be able to experience a pre-make of the Pokémon formula with the release of the open world action RPG Pokémon Legends Arceus.
Taking place in the Sinnoh region, players will be able to encounter Pokémon like Piplup, Oshawott, Rowlet, and Cyndaquil. Unlike previous entries, players must study each Pokémon’s behaviors, sneak, and throw Pokéballs to capture wild Pokémon. However, in true series’ fashion, players will also be able to battle wild Pokémon with their ally Pokémon.
