Pokemon Legends: Arceus Hisui Region Trailer, Details and Screenshots Released

The new trailer released during the Pokemon Presents live stream features the Hisui Region for Pokemon Legends: Arceus. The trailer featured some of the environments including rolling hills inhabited by Clefairys, villages, as well as snow covered peaks. It also previewed some of the ways to get around including on foot, bird gliding (yes move over BOTW, bird gliding is a thing), jet skis and using Pokemon as mounts.

Probably what stole most trainers’ hearts was the Hisuian Growlithe, which is just the fluffiest cloud version you’ve ever seen. Safe to say there are some interesting region variants to capture.

New details about the variant Pokemon and gameplay can be found below:

Pokemon Legends: Arceus takes Trainers on an adventure through the Sinnoh region of the past—before it was even called Sinnoh. Many years ago, the land was called the Hisui region, and it was rare for humans and Pokemon to live in close harmony.

New gameplay details and Pokemon revealed:

As a member of the Galaxy Expedition Team, players will visit Jubilife Village, a bustling settlement that serves as a 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 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 will serve as an outpost for their work. These base camps are more than just starting points—Trainers can stop for a rest during an excursion, letting their team of Pokemon recover their health, or use a base camp’s workbench to craft items.[1]

As Trainers progress toward completing the Pokedex and increase in rank as a member of the Galaxy Team, they will meet interesting characters and encounter unique Pokemon living in the Hisui region.

Hisuian Growlithe
