Legends: Arceus - General Speculation/Discussion Thread

Well, it is to be known that Arceus is indeed a Mythical. Therefore it has always been event based.

If you remember the original Diamond an Pearl games Arceus was only accessible only by Action Reply aka cheating only because #Blame Game Freak for thinking it was to hard to understand to kids back then so the event never officially happend.

So with the new Switch versions an legend of Arceus coming next year game freak probly now realizing it was not complex for kid/adult gamers to figure the cancled event
I'm still confused as to why they thought it'd be too complicated for kids. Literally the most complicated thing about it would be knowing to go to Mount Coronet and then catching Arceus. Otherwise it's just: get flute from event, go to Spear Pillar, go up the steps, and catch Arceus. Unless they only programmed the ending of the event into the game, I'm not sure what was so hard for kids to understand.

I just had a thought, and I'm sure everyone else thought this too and I'm just late to the party. But honestly, this would be the perfect game for different forms Voltorb/Electorb and Fungus/Amongus as well. They both must have evolved to look like Pokeballs, and since we are getting the first pokeballs in this game, it would fit to see both those lines show up without the pokeball theme.

Fungus/Amoongus are possible but Voltorb/Electrode are stated to come from a pokeball factory

To be fair that doesn’t mean that Voltorb/Electrode couldn’t get regional forms, as they could just do it similar to the situation that did with the Galarian Forms of the Legendary Bird Trio.

Where even though it’s a completely different mon it still share the same name and called a regional variant.

Well maybe that version of Voltorb comes from a pokeball factory, but it's ancestor doesn't? I mean a lot of people think Voltorb is silly (I don't) so adding a ancestor that leads it to adapt to the pokeball look, would kinda fix that. But of course this is a personal opinion haha. I just think it would be cool is all.

I'm hoping that whatever happens we also get to see some more signature moves like Stone Axe. I think that there's a lot of potential with the new pokemon & regional forms for some creative moves.

So if you have a Sword and Shield save file you will unlock two things.

A Shaymin Kimono set from the Clothier in the village.

As well as a Research Request to find/catch Shaymin in the Post-Game.
Where was this announced? I don’t see anything on the English Pokemon YouTube channel.

Kind of surprising it's the SwSh data that unlocks this instead of BDSP

I hope the wild Pokémon will have different dispositions on humans depending on how they are. For example a Pokémon could be, Friendly, Neutral, Scared, Angry, Hostile, or even Repulsed. For example a Friendly Pokémon will walk up and interact with you while A Repulsed Pokémon will not only attack on sight but make a True Effort to chase you down and finish you should your Pokémon Lose to it. Alternatively a Sacred Pokémon will simply flee from you while an Angry one may warn you a few times before attacking. That would make for a truly immersive and living Pokémon World.
