​Pokémon Legends: Arceus can have its own BDSP-style Grand Underground

The upcoming Pokémon Legend: Arceus promises an exciting new adventure in the ancient version of the familiar Sinnoh region, and Grand Underground from Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl may appear. The setting of the game Hisui is known to Sinnoh a long time ago, which means that the underground area of the game can imitate the vast cave network introduced by the Gen 4 game. Although there is no conclusive evidence to support it, there is no evidence to refute it, which means that everything is possible.

Grand Underground is a feature that first debuted in the 4th generation game Diamond and Pearl, and has gained a new life in the remake. This is a key point in the trailer and reveals many new features before the game is released. Pokémon BDSP's Grand Underground adds many new features, such as finding Digletts. Every mainline game has caves, mines, or underground areas in some form, and since "Pokémon: Arceus" seems to be very focused on exploration and game environment, it can be said to be okay. These caves may show players what Sinnoh's Ancient Underground looks like.

The main purpose of Grand Underground is to allow players to obtain rare items, such as fossils, evolution stones and spheres that can be traded. Although Pokémon Legends: Arceus is unlikely to imitate it completely, it can give it a new form and new purpose. The cave that will one day become a large underground has the potential to become a beautiful part of the game, seamlessly integrating with the rest of Hisui. The ancient dungeon can solve the problem of Pokémon BDSP and make the experience better than the main game. So far, the environment shown in the trailer has been amazing, so the caves in the area may be the same. Its existence may be pure speculation at the moment, but Hisui's Underground may become a fan's favorite part of the game.

Pokémon Legend: Arceus can show players the ancient underground of Sinnoh

BDSP's Grand Underground is a series of huge caves that span the entire Shenao area. Since it is such a huge network of caves, it can be said with certainty that it was formed naturally at least in part. There are modern brackets and lights in the cave, and the walls are neatly arranged into neat corridors, but all this means that it is extremely unlikely to be completely man-made, especially considering that it is scattered in the cave network and generated in the Grand Underground of BDSP Rare Pokémon. The unrefined, untamed version may be one or more areas that Legends: Arceus players will explore.

There are two facts that may be the biggest argument that Pokémon Legends: Arceus may contain some form of the underground world. One is that the game will not be completely open to the world as fans initially expected, but will be divided into different areas, completely separated from each other, which is different from the wilderness of Pokémon SWSH. The other is that the underground is divided into six different parts, each of which has different biomes and environmental characteristics. Individually, none of these makes much sense, but the way the underground is divided can easily make it an independent area of "Legend: Arceus", which means that the possibility exists. Since it is not as open as SWSH's Wild Area, Pokémon BDSP's Grand Underground can be well transformed into the structure of the game world.

If Grand Underground does appear in Pokémon Legends: Arceus, it may be very different from the one in BDSP. Not only in terms of its aesthetics, but also in terms of its purpose. The main goal of Grand Underground is to obtain rare items and Pokémon that cannot be found elsewhere and to collect statues to build a player's secret base. Without secret bases, statues, exclusive items and Pokémon species, the big dungeon may become a beautiful environment, or even a series of environments, where players can enjoy hours of exploration. The details of the different areas in the game are currently unknown, so some future areas based on or even explicitly declared underground may make players who encounter them happy. Catch different Pokémon in the legend: Arceus' cave and diving into their twisted tunnel may eventually become the best part of some people's game.
