There’s plenty to look forward to with Pokemon Legends: Arceus, including new creatures that have been newly-revealed, including Wyrdeer, Basculin, Hisuian Braviary, and Hisuian Growlithe. Along with brand new Pokemon, some existing ones will be receiving alternate forms in the game.

Today’s Pokemon Legends: Arceus trailer and Pokemon Presents broadcast shared four reveals. Wyrdeer and Basculin are new Pokemon while Braviary and Growlithe will have new Hisuian forms.

Here’s an introduction to each creature:

In the Hisui region, Stantler can evolve into Wyrdeer. Using the black orbs at the bases of its antlers, this Pokémon generates and unleashes psychic energy powerful enough to distort space.

Basculin in the Hisui region evolve into Basculegion when they are possessed by the souls of other Basculin from their school that could not withstand the harsh journey upstream. Their propulsive power is bolstered by the souls possessing them, letting them swim without tiring.

When Rufflet in the Hisui region evolve, they become Hisuian Braviary. Hisuian Braviary can imbue its eerie screeches with psychic power to generate powerful shock waves. It can also use its psychic power to sharpen its sixth sense, entering a trance that boosts its physical abilities.
