Hisuian Zorua and Hisuian Zoroark

Hisuian Zorua and Hisuian Zoroark are joining Pokemon Legends: Arceus, it’s been revealed.

That news was just made known as part of a video shared by The Pokemon Company. Earlier in the week, we saw a mysterious teaser with blurred footage. That footage has since been restored, providing a proper look at the new Pokemon. It’s said that Hisuian Zoroark “seems scary” though “it also appears to be protective of Hisuian Zorua.”

The Pokemon Company just uploaded a new teaser video for Pokemon Legends: Arceus. In it, it shows that a researcher has made a rare discovery in the Canalave Library. It includes some mysterious footage that seems to document the landscape of the Hisui region.

A new Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield distribution for Shiny Zacian and Shiny Zamazenta will soon be available at GameStop, the retailer has announced. This will be offered to fans in the United States.

Typically this sort of distribution would be a big deal. However, GameStop casually announced the news on its Facebook page this weekend. As far as we can tell, The Pokemon Company itself hasn’t even mentioned the news, including on its own website.

pokemon legends arceus open world

There’s been a lot of talk surrounding Pokemon Legends: Arceus as of late and whether or not the game will be open world. When it was revealed many months ago, a number of people compared it to Zelda: Breath of the Wild. But more information has been shared in August and September, and after combing through all of the latest content, fans came to the conclusion that an open world probably wouldn’t be in the cards.

Based on new comments from The Pokemon Company, Pokemon Legends: Arceus will be less like Breath of the Wild and more comparable to Monster Hunter with no real open world. That’s because Jubilife Village is your base of operations, and you’ll then go to different open areas in Hisui after taking on tasks.
