What spoilers are there for Pokémon Legends: Arceus?
Pokémon Legends: Arceus is set to launch on January 28, and it's almost here, and players can't wait. One of the main comparisons of this game is that the game design is similar to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Although the game sometimes allows players to have their own adventures, there is still a central narrative. Linear narrative is one of those overused clichés that fans don't like about Pokémon games. Leaks revealed some new story content, and fans joined in.
The Redditor herb_screams responded to the thread's prompt with "The story itself, I've only seen bits and pieces of it, and I'm super excited to see the whole thing." Although the spoilers have come out, many fans are desperately avoiding it, hoping to enjoy the content with surprises for the first time.
sea safety version
For example, Pokémon Sun and Moon was the first game in the series to include alternate versions of beloved Pokémon, such as Alolan Raichu. The Hisuian Typhlosion was met with some backlash at first, but fans were thrilled with the change after a video leaked its majestic purple flames. Players are already vocal about what Pokémon they think are worthy of a Hisuian version, so it's exciting to see these iterations come to life.
Reddit user Sixerangerdanger expressed his excitement for Typhlosion. "Video of Typhlosion on fire. Very reassuring to see the still image," he said, referring to the previous backlash. The variant hype also includes a new Alpha Pokémon.
Hang out with your Pokémon
A well-loved feature of previous City Capital games, notably Heart Gold and Soul Silver, was that players could summon a Pokémon to walk behind them as their travel companion. Sword and Shield allows players to free their Pokémon to play and feed in enclosed camp areas. Pokémon Legends: Arceus will allow players to unleash their Pokémon into the world at will.
Appreciators of Pokémon designs will love this feature. According to user Glory2Snowstar, who said they "hyped up the feature", describing himself as a "player who likes to be immersed in the game world."
No more trade evolution
One characteristic of Pokémon that has been around since the early stages is trade evolution. A handful of very popular Pokémon, such as Machamp and Gengar, have always required trade between players to evolve. This will no longer be a feature. Some have described trade evolution as an aspect of poor Pokémon aging.
In the comments, user BaronKlatz expressed their joy at the change and recounted previous mishaps with the mechanic. "I hated this since Pokemon Red and I found out why my level 99 Graveler still wouldn't evolve," they said. Older fans of the game may still be in pain, recalling that wanting to have Gengar meant either having a friend of the game , or buy two consoles and two games.
