    Product Description

    Action meets RPG as the Pokémon series reaches a new frontier

     

    Get ready for a new kind of grand, Pokémon adventure in Pokémon Legends: Arceus, a brand-new game from Game Freak that blends action and exploration with the RPG roots of the Pokémon series. Embark on survey missions in the ancient Hisui region. Explore natural expanses to catch wild Pokémon by learning their behavior, sneaking up, and throwing a well-aimed Poké Ball. You can also toss the Poké Ball containing your ally Pokémon near a wild Pokémon to seamlessly enter battle. Travel across land, sea, and sky on the backs of Pokémon to explore every corner of the Hisui region.

     

    Travel to the Hisui region—the Sinnoh of old—and build the region’s first Pokédex

     

    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, uncover the mystery surrounding the Mythical Pokémon known as Arceus.

     

    A free software update brings special mass outbreaks and new challenges

     

    In the free Daybreak update, you will begin investigating mysterious mass outbreaks of Pokémon that are popping up all over the Hisui region. You’ll also have a chance to battle powerful opponents like Legendary Pokémon in Eternal Battle Reverie and wardens at the Jubilife Village training grounds. Daybreak content will be available after viewing the game’s end credits. The Eternal Battle Reverie will become available after completing all missions.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Pokemon Hunter Stories. Explore and Catch, Less Battle Focused
    Reviewed in the United States on January 28, 2022
    This game is ‘Monster Hunter Stories’, but more toned down with pokemon theme: Start at hub world. Get missions to collect/observe certain pokemon, go back with findings. Don’t know why people are calling it ‘Zelda Breath of the Wild’ of pokemon games

    Only one version of the game this time. Don’t need to purchase two versions to collect all pokemon.

    Single player focused game. No trade evolutions (pokemon with trade evolutions before use items to evolve now), able to obtain all starter pokemon in wild post game. 242 total pokemon at launch.

    Technically 240 since two are gifts for having save data on Switch from other games (more on this later). May have more due to mystery gifts in the future

    You can trade pokemon if you want, but no online battling. Unless Nintendo decide to patch in online battles later; not a competitive game except for speedruns.

    Gameplay is more involved than mainline pokemon games; having to sneak and hide behind grass in real time instead of touching pokemon and pressing A and use D-pad buttons to win. More focused on the trainer than pokemon battles (more on this later)

    Story. Origin of pokemon, or at least first in the timeline. Try to complete the first ever pokedex. You explore the Hisui region. Characters/NPC have family lineage to recent games due to their appearance. You can choose which clan (diamond and pearl) to join.

    More story: text heavy than previous mainline pokemon games. Disappointed there’s no voice acting

    Graphics is the one of the best from the pokemon series thus far, but not the best graphics on Switch overall especially the environmental graphics. There are framerate dips at times depending on how many things are happening on screen

    If you have save data from past pokemon games on switch, you get additional bonuses

    For Pokemon Let’s Go games you get Pikachu and Evvee masks by talking to the clothier after joining the Galaxy Expedition Team

    For Sword and Shield save data you get Shaymin, by doing a side quest post game. Also Shaymin Kimono Set by speaking to clothier

    For Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl save data you get Darkrai post game, and Modern Galactic Set clothes

    --Gameplay:

    Mix of Pokemon safari, and pokemon battles. Follow same gameplay flow as monster hunter games.

    This game is more about exploring and catching pokemon. Battles can be totally speed luck based (more on this later)

    Instead of focusing on beating elite 4 (No gyms in this game); you’re working with the survey corps to collect data on wild pokemon via missions NPCs give you.

    For example: NPC will ask you what pokemon to catch, and you go out on mission to capture one

    Since you’re collecting data, there are sub missions/quests you must do to complete the pokedex like catch a pokemon a certain way (not being spotted, catching a lighter/heavier version), see them use certain moves a specified amount to times, or simply defeating them.

    Basically you’re just doing a series of check list quests.

    Story progression is gated by how many quests you complete. Can be frustrating for those who just want to see the main story and not quest grind

    You can catch pokemon without battling like giving them food first then throwing pokeball to catch. Or just sneak up and throw a pokeball at them

    Most of the time you don’t engage in pokemon battles (unless you do a quest that require you to do certain moves or boss battles). It’s easier just to throw a pokeball as a trainer (Like Ash trying to catch a pidgy in first episode of the anime) than battling a pokemon till they reach near 1hp, maybe do a status effect, and throw pokeball.

    No static movements from wild pokemon in overworld or random encounters. Different pokemon have different temperaments/personality: some just let you catch them for free (can catch multiple pokemon in succession if group together, or when they’re sleeping), run away from you, or attack you (sees you as a threat and put on angry face as you get closer). Higher level pokemon (alpha pokemon) will appear bigger with red eyes.

    There are shiny pokemon you can spot in the overworld. The game does give you a notification sound if there’s one nearby. When hear this sound, save your game! (you can save at anytime). If you mess up catching the shiny, you can reload the save and try again.

    There are random in-game events called ‘Mass outbreaks’ where there’s a large concentration of a particular pokemon in an area marked on your map. Going there will have higher shiny spawns especially if you keep catching the same pokemon in a herd/group

    If a pokemon attacks you; you can throw out a pokeball and have a traditional turned based pokemon battle. Pokemon battles are seamless with no screen transition with no different graphics/art like past games. Battle animations are less static where pokemon shake to attack like previous games, actually have unique animations

    If you don’t throw out pokeball to battle, wild pokemon can attack your trainer character and have them black out if you don’t get away in time. If you black out this way or in battle; you lose some items you’re carrying. If you go back to where you blacked out, you can’t get items back…but if you’re connected to Nintendo Online you can find other people’s item they dropped. Instead of getting exact items, you are told what items they held and get only currency for it (which is a bit weird)

    During pokemon battles, you still have 4 moves to select from. Can use Strong, agile style for each move. Latter has chance to attack first but weaker. If you have high speed stats you can attack multiple times, and vice versa with your opponent. Also can do regular move without strong or agile if you want to do something in between.

    You can’t view your or other pokemon stats during battle, so you can get frustrated when they attack multiple times and you just have to assume they’re way faster than your pokemon

    Noble pokemon count as boss battles. Must throw bombs (from trainer) at them, while simultaneously dodge roll from their attacks. Once they get tired, you can throw out pokemon and start pokemon battle
    Since the RPG turn-based is toned down, best to play with pro controller especially when going against nobel pokemon. One of the noble pokemon is so OP (more so than Cynthia in Pokemon BDSP)

    Trainer you control move in full 360 degree motion in open world instead of 8 directions. Camera is more 3rd person over the shoulder than top-down.

    There is a day/night cycle. One in-game day is around 20-25mins

    Open world. Use pokemon like wyrdeer, basculegion, and Braviary to help traverse world. Able to control them in real time while traversing. There’s fall damage which is annoying.

    Collect materials and craft. Break rocks, collect flowers, shake trees, stuff laying on the ground. You can craft at anytime with items on your person, or at crafting table (use items in storage)

    A lot of clothing options in game. More options unlock as you progress through the game. Able to customize individual clothing parts like hat, shirt, pants, kimono/outer wear, shoes and glasses.
    At hairdresser you can change hairstyle, and eyebrow/hair color

    No pokemon breeding or held items. No Ditto due to timeline

    Pokemon don’t evolve automatically. Must go into menu and press to evolve. Game will give you notification if they can evolve or not

    -9 types of pokeballs: Pokeball, great ball, ultra ball, heavy ball, leaden ball, gigaton ball, feather ball, wing ball, jet ball

    Pokeball, greatball, ultra ball function as you expect

    Heavy, leaden and gigaton is for stealth/sneak up catching pokemon, low range

    Feather Wing and Jet ball for catching nible pokemon and pokemon in flying in air. Long range
    No master ball seeing the timeline of the story

    No EVs, IVs. Instead of EL (effort levels). Each stat can upgrade to 10. Use particular items to upgrade stats by any amount. No need to breed, battle same pokemon 100s of times, and use protein/vitamins to increase particular stat. No need to mix-max. Pokemon of same nature have exact same stat.

    Overall fun game if you want to be an apprentice pokemon researcher, and not the best there ever was (Pokemon).

    5.0 out of 5 stars The Pokémon Game We’ve Been Waiting For!
    Reviewed in the United States on January 29, 2022
    I’ve been a Pokémon fan since Red & Blue for the GameBoy, & have been enjoying Pokémon games since. I have to admit that the regular formula for Pokémon games has gotten a bit stale, as even though I liked the Diamond & Pearl remakes, I grew bored with them quickly.

    Enter Pokémon Legends Arceus! This is the fresh, fun, mysterious, & exciting Pokémon game I’ve been wanting for so long! You still train, catch, & battle Pokémon, but everything is done totally different. Pokémon fans will feel right at home with this as it is different in welcoming ways that fans have been wanting for a long time.

    I don’t want to spoil the game, but the story is solid, the art style of the game is beautiful, & the gameplay is magnificent. If you’re a Pokémon fan, this is a must have game. If you’re a Nintendo Switch owner & not a Pokémon fan, this might be a great game to try out to see if it gets you into Pokémon. I highly recommend this game.

    5.0 out of 5 stars La reinvención en la fórmula de Pokémon
    Reviewed in Mexico on April 7, 2022
    Una nueva entrega que revolucionó la fórmula de la franquicia Pokémon como la conocemos en portátiles y consolas.
    Su gameplay de pelea aun que conserva la interfase y fórmula de los juegos anteriores innova en la implementación de los ataques y el tipo de Pokémon que usas vs elq ue combates, así como sus ataques y estadísticas, que lonhace mas innovador y por supues un RPG un poco maa profundo.
    Su mundo habierto y ambientación toman muchas ideas de Zelda BoTW y aun que su implementación es correcta en el mundo Pokémon no llega hacer tan profundo e inmersivo como en Zelda, desaprovechando los NPC al no otorgaerles tareas especificas durante el transcurso del tiempo y darles un poco mas de dialogos para profundizar mas en la trama del juegos y en el mismo mapa o regiones del juegos, ademas en momentos llega a sentirse algo vacio el mundo al tener diseños muy basicos, de los Pokémon no hay problema, encontrarás una inmensa ca tidad de ellos en todo el mapa realizando diferentes actividades, comportamientos y en distintos lugares, desde llanos, bosques, maleza, rios u oceanos hasta en el mismo cielo lo que los hace sentir muy orgánicos y te da una sensación muy profunda de estar capturandolos e investigandolos.
    Sin duda un juego que innova en los aspectos de conocer, entrenar, atrapar y ver a los Pokémon en sus habitas, interactuando y con un diseño artistico muy lindo.
    8/10 para los que se estan adentrando por primera vez al mundo Pokémon, para los fans sin duda sera un 9/10.

    Experiencia con el vendedor:
    Todo en orden, mi pedido fue enviado a tiempo y llego antes de lo previsto. El vendedor atendio mi pregunta amablemente, el vendedor es de estados unidos y me llegó la edición de USA en excelente estado y bien empacada, super recomendable comprar con Action Gear.
