Catch, survey and research wild PokÃ©mon to create and complete the Sinnoh region’s first PokÃ©dex in PokÃ©mon Legends: Arceus, coming to Nintendo Switch on 28th January, 2022. PokÃ©mon Legends: Arceus honours past PokÃ©mon games’ core gameplay while infusing new action and RPG elements.
You’ll be brought to the Sinnoh region, the setting for PokÃ©mon Diamond and PokÃ©mon Pearl. But this story unfolds in a long-gone era, before ideas such as being a PokÃ©mon Trainer or having a PokÃ©mon League even existed. All around, you’ll find PokÃ©mon living wild in harsh environments that make for a Sinnoh unlike the region you may remember from the days of PokÃ©mon Diamond and PokÃ©mon Pearl.
To catch PokÃ©mon in PokÃ©mon Legends: Arceus, you can observe them to learn their behaviour, then carefully sneak up, aim your PokÃ© Ball and let fly! You can also have your ally PokÃ©mon battle wild PokÃ©mon that you hope to catch. Just throw the PokÃ© Ball holding your ally PokÃ©mon near a wild PokÃ©mon, and you’ll seamlessly enter battle and command your PokÃ©mon by choosing from moves it knows.
As you start off on your adventure to create the region’s first PokÃ©dex, you’ll be able to choose Rowlet, Cyndaquil, or Oshawott as a partner. These three PokÃ©mon arrived with a PokÃ©mon Professor, who encountered them on research excursions to various regions.
