    Default Pokémon Legends Arceus

    This is a new Pokemon game that is set in the past and is looking to change up how we play pokemon.

    It was just announced today that it will be releasing on January 28th 2022.

    It has an interesting look to it... I wonder if the concept the way it looked will work though. Looks more 'open' than other Pokémon games.

    There was recently a new trailer for this game. It looks like we are getting new regional variants for Braviery, Stantler, Basculin, and Growlithe. I wonder how many variants total we will be getting in the game?

    The new game play looks interesting; especially wild pokemon being able to attack the player. The Ursaring shown attacking the trainer really looked scary. The new battle mechanics also look neat.

    This trailer definitely convinced me to buy so I went ahead and pre-ordered it.

    I heard there's a lot of complaining about the graphics - but honestly I think they are alright. I mean, it's Pokémon, not some Triple A junkl.

    Actually it's just Braviary and Growlithe who are straight up regional variants, Stantler and Basculin get regnal evolutions in the form of Wyrdeer and Basculegion.

    A new trailer was released today. We are now getting a new evolved form for Scyther, called Kleaver. Kleaver looks really neat.

    I pre-ordered the regular version. The extras that come from buying deluxe editions don't interest me.

    I'll just get the regular version too. For me deluxe versions are almost never worth it.

    Of course, there could be another way to get my hands into the poster, but I pre-ordered that edition.

    I've been very curious about this game, getting to know about the history of Pokemon world, plus, how a Pokemon game will handle the open-world environment. Although I don't actually own too many open-world games, Skyrim comes first to my mind, I don't know if you even can compare these two games...

    I used to have a lot of Pokemon cards, but I sold them in a flea market just before Pokemon Go came around. I recently got another spend from a friend though.

    I'm very happy that they're trying something new here. That said, the gameplay doesn't really jump out at me.

    I'll buy it, I'll play it, and I'll most likely enjoy it. But am I excited for it? Not really, I just need to fill out my PokeDex.

    I received the game. The poster was two-sided and my random card was Alolan Graveler.

    Chose Cyndaquil as my starter, and already had it fainted when foolhardly taking on a Rapidash luckily I could restore all my Pokemon by resting for just a little while.

    I'm still waiting on my copy of the game. When I finally get it, I plan on picking Rowlett as my starter.

    I heard about that Rapidash towards the beginning of the game, so I will be avoiding it until I'm properly leveled.

    lol I eyed that thing off for quite some time before electing to leave it be. That said, I did gamely sneak by it to pick up a nearby item, and then fled for my life.

    I got my copy yesterday. As I mentioned, I did pick Rowlet as my starter. So far, I got to the part where you fight your first Alpha (kricketune).

    So far, I'm enjoying the game.

    I’ve made it to the Kamado battle. I have so many Pokémon and caught a couple of Alphas.

    I'm currently on the Cobalt Island. My team for most of this time was Decidueye, Infernape, Staraptor, Golem, Alpha Floatzel, and Luxray. I recently swapped out Infernape and Golem for Magmortar and Rhyperior. I never got to use either of those pokemon before so I was eager to put them on my team the first chance I got. Depending on how things go, I may swap out Staraptor and Luxray for Braviery and Electivire.

    I'm now in the post game. I did end up swapping out Staraptor and Luxray for Braviery and Electivire.

    Overall, I enjoyed the game and wouldn't mind a similar game set in a different region.

    Heard it's decent. Not amazing, but decent. Will pick it up at some point in the next decade. Maybe.
