Pokemon Legends: Arceus now available on Nintendo Switch

An all-new adventure filled with mystery and discovery awaits Pokémon Trainers in the Hisui region, the backdrop of the Pokémon Legends: Arceus game, which is now available exclusively on Nintendo Switch systems.
Pokémon Legends: Arceus takes Trainers through the Sinnoh region of old, when it was called by a different name—Hisui—and in a time when it was rare for humans and Pokémon to live in close harmony. Players will embark on an adventure to help complete the region’s first Pokédex by catching, surveying, and researching the wild Pokémon that live there.​ Rich in nature and with Mount Coronet towering at its heart, the Hisui region is unlike anything Trainers have experienced before.
As a member of the Galaxy Expedition Team, players will stay in Jubilife Village, a bustling settlement that serves as the Galaxy Team’s base of operations. After receiving an assignment or a request, Trainers will set out from the village to study one of the various areas of the Hisui region. After they finish their survey work, Trainers will return to Jubilife Village to prepare for their next task. Whenever Trainers leave Jubilife Village to set out on an excursion, their first stop will be one of the base camps that serve as an outpost for their research. These base camps are more than just starting points—Trainers can stop to rest during an excursion and recover their Pokémon’s health or use the base camp’s workbench to craft items.

  1. To anyone that owns the game; Would you say it’s worth getting? I skipped out on any Pokemon games after Pokemon USUM but would be willing to give this 1 a shot if it’s genuinely good.

    1. Only have about 2 hours in so far, but I’m loving it.
      It’s the EXACT kind of pokemon game I’ve been wanting.
      It does a lot to mix up the formula, and fixes so many of the issues I’ve had with the series for years.
      Exploring is a ton of fun.

  2. I just realized…. what happened to Pokemon demos? There was a demo for ORAS, SunMoon, Let’s Go, Mystery Dungeon Dx, and even Pokken Dx.

    But there wasn’t one for Sword and Shield and now there’s not one for Legends Arceus? What’s up with that? Seems like Legends Arceus should especially have a demo for being a bit of a departure from the mainline games.
