ABOUT THE GAME
Pokémon Legends: Arceus is an action role-playing game that preserves the core gameplay of past entries in the main line series. The game is set in a bygone era of the Sinnoh region’s history, when it was known as the Hisui region (which appears to be based on Japan in the 19th century), long before the events of Pokémon Diamond and Pearl and their remakes take place. The mythical Pokémon Arceus will play a major role in the story.
Players can capture wild Pokémon in the overworld without engaging in battle, though some wild Pokémon must still be battled before being caught. Players can initiate battles by releasing their capture Pokémon near a wild Pokémon. Poké Balls in this era are made of wood and puff steam when a Pokémon is caught. At the start of the game, three starter Pokémon options are available: Rowlet (from Pokémon Sun and Moon), Cyndaquil (from Pokémon Gold and Silver) and Oshawott (from Pokémon Black and White). This makes Pokémon Legends: Arceus the first mainline game to feature starter Pokémon from three different previous generations.
