What is Pokemon Legends Arceus?
If you aren't sure what Pokemon Legends Arceus is, you should definitely check out the official YouTube channel to see the many videos showcasing new creatures and functions of the game.
It is the first action role-playing game developed by Game Freak and seen in its video game division. It brings a new take on catching mechanics and travel.
Players can catch some Pokemon in Legends Arceus right in the overworld without entering the turn-based battle the series is typically known for. It also comes with three starters from different Generations.
Trainers can select either Rowlet, Cyndaquil, or Oshawott to begin their adventure. It is a different type of Pokemon game, and many feel like Legends Arceus represents the future of the franchise.
