I think Legends, even without meaningful DLC, was the best way to end a generation that otherwise, to put it mildly, would have ranked as my least favorite in the history of the franchise by a country mile.

I'm excited to say that after a few weeks away, I'm about to replay it all over again with a totally new team. I'm thinking about focusing on Bug and Grass types this time and actually customizing my trainer a bit more. It would have been nice to be able to transfer to Home first, but I suppose nothing I caught really is that big of a deal to me besides my Umbreon, which I can get again rather easily. I still hope they add support soon.

This is the first game since like HGSS that I find myself truly excited to replay, honestly - the huge majority of my replay time goes to those, Emerald, and Gen 2 in general.

I'm hopeful that even if there's not more of Legends: Arceus to come, it serves as the foundation for new games, the turning point for the series, and the first step of a new renaissance for the franchise. And I hope that we get more Legends games sooner than later.

Should they have included more Pokémon from Johto in Pokémon Legends: Arceus? Yes or no?

My answer is yes. They should have included more Johto Pokémon in Pokémon Legends: Arceus. Will there be another free update that brings more Johto Pokémon into PLA? My answer to that question is also yes.

While I think it’s likely that an update will happen to PLA given that the Generation 8 Pokédex does not end in a mythical Pokémon I don’t think the hypothetical update will add any Pokémon to the game.

We're so close to Scarlet and Violet at this point, that I can't see any more Pokemon being added to Legends: Arceus, not even a Mythical. Gen 8 will most likely be the first time a Generation's Pokedex ends without a Mythical, which it was going to be anyway with Calyrex being the last Pokemon in the Gen 8 Pokedex before Legends: Arceus came out. There could be at least one more update to Legends: Arceus this year, but at the very most it'll be something like a story event or new cosmetic items.

Yeah i don't think any more new Pokemon. They've changed rules before after all. Gens mostly start with the grass starter except gen 5 which technically the first Pokemon in national dex order is Victini. So rules aren't completely rigid .Gen 8 is also a bit different to most gens as it expanded the Pokedex due to DLC and then due to Legends Arceus. For me ending with a Legendary like Enamorus given the options in Legends Arceus makes sense.

Hi guys, maybe ya'll can help me, I'm torn on which water pokemon and grass pokemon to get, I've been using Floatzel but he pretty much sucks so I was thinking Basculegion. And for grass I was thinking Abomasnow. The rest of my team is Typhlosion, Togekiss, Luxray, and Ursaluna.

I asked in the help thread but appears to be abandoned lol.

Maybe try Lilligent for Grass? And if you want another choice than Basculegion what about Empoleon?

Definitely not Empoleon, don't like the line at all. Lilligant is interesting, I'll have to see about that. I liked the idea of Abomasnow though for the Ice coverage. Also I heard ghost type is really good in the game so I thought that Typhlosion and Basculegion might work well together.

I actually find the ground type to be most useful and they ghost type is useful but I tend to run into a lot of other ghosts and dark types that really wreak havoc on my Zoroark. However, if you’re looking for the grass-fire-water trio to be in your party might I suggest this: Lilligant-Typhlosion-Tentacruel. Lilligant has some nice coverage and is the prototypical physical sweeper and Tentacruel is part poison which will deal with the multitude of grass and fairy Pokémon and gives you a couple nest resists. And then Typhlosion is your starter so definitely keep that.

You could use Manaphy or Phione since they can be caught during the story.


Also looks like they're finally talking about HOME compatibility

I’m really surprised that we can bring Pokémon from other games into Legends. I have my Cyndaquil from my very first Soul Silver playthrough that I never evolved, but I may end up turning it into a Hisuian Typhlosion because of this

I'm more stoked we can bring pokemon from Legends into Sword & Shield.

I definitely want to try out Wyrdeer and Basculegion in some rank battles.

Don't want to be your dreamcrusher but we can only bring those which are coded into SwSh. So you can bring a Gyarados from Legends but not a Wyrdeer or Basculegion...

I’m just glad I can finally move the shiny Murkrow I hatched in Go into Legends and BDSP.
