The six-minute trailer, which you can watch below, begins with footage from Pokemon such as Purugly, Turtwig, and Magikarp roaming the new PokÃ©mon world of Hisue, an older version of the Sinnoh region of Shiny Diamond and Shiny Pearl PokÃ©mon.
The trailer then shows players stalking through the tall grass, sneaking up on a Shinx in an attempt to catch it. PokÃ©mon Legends: Arceus will see players swap the turn-based combat the game is known for, for that more action-oriented mechanic.
We then have a brief overview of PokÃ©mon Legends: Arceus the equivalent of a PokeDex, which combines PokÃ©mon from different regions, such as Cyndaquil from Johto and Oshawot from Unova.
PokÃ©mon that cannot be caught by simply stalking them will need to be fought and weakened before they are caught. Hisuian Growlithe, a regional variant of the much-loved fire dog from the Kanto region, can be seen in the footage.
Larger PokÃ©mon, which will serve as boss fights, will require special items before they can be caught.
We also know from previous trailers that the game will not feature traditional gyms, instead the game will focus on catching PokÃ©mon, which will allow players to access later areas of the game.
It’s likely we’ll have an English version of this trailer soon, where all elements and text will be localized, but it has yet to be released at the time of writing.
Somewhere else, Red Dead Online shared details of its latest update, however, the announcement was met with anger by frustrated fans who believe Rockstar has “given up” on the game.
