    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 just ordered a Steelbook Edition which includes a random Pokemon Card and a poster from a Finnish game shop

    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.
