Game news Pokémon Arceus Legends: Iconic Features Missing? Players worry

A few weeks before its release, rumors are accelerating around Pokémon Legends: Arceus, the highly anticipated open-world Pokémon spin-off. Recently, some famous insiders have commented on the lack of major features present in every other game in the franchise. The opportunity for us to come back to these leaks to be taken with a grain of salt.

It was a leak that had the effect of a small bomb in the Pokémon community. It comes to us this time from Centro LEAKS, one of the Twitter accounts of Pokémon Center, a Spanish site devoted to Pokémon news, which deals only with information leaks around the franchise. A source that has proven itself since it had previously predicted the announcement of the remakes of Pokémon Diamond and Pearl on Switch from January 2021 while the games were not announced until the end of February.

Simplified game mechanics?

Recently, Centro LEAKS therefore reported information revealed by the insider Riddler Khu regarding Pokémon Legends: Arceus whose release is imminent. But before returning to these recent leaks, it should be emphasized that this is information that has neither been communicated nor confirmed by an official source such as Game Freaks, Pokémon Company or even Nintendo. While waiting for an official announcement on these specific points, this information should therefore be taken with a grain of salt for the moment.

Thus, according to Riddler Khu, Pokémon Legends: Arceus would not allow Pokémon to reproduce between them, nor to make them hold objects. What’s more, Pokémon would no longer have special abilities, these passive skills that can be activated both in combat and outside. The statistics system would also have been redone since the IVs (individual values or potential) would still exist, but would no longer be used to determine statistics. As a reminder, IVs are hidden numeric values, randomly generated 0 and 31 and defined for each statistic of a Pokémon. For example, if you want to play online against other players, it is recommended that you have a competitive Pokémon that has max IVs in most of its characteristics to be up to the task. In Pokémon Legends: Arceus, stats could only be increased by using candy, as in Pokémon Let’s Go, Pikachu / Évoli.

Finally, the insider also evokes information that we consider to be spoilers and which we will only deal with behind this button so as not to spoil the surprise of those who do not want to know too much before discovering the game for themselves. Thus, Riddler Khu adds that it would be necessary to complete all of Hisui’s Pokédex before being able to capture Arceus, which should take time. When it comes to Legendary Pokemon, facing them would take the form of a boss fight. difficult for those who are not used to action games. Regarding the “mighty Sinnoh” worshiped by the Diamond clan and the Pearl clan, it is obviously Dialga and Palkia. On the Pokémon side, Mucuscule would be entitled to a form of Hisui and Farfuret has a new evolution specific to the region. Finally, the three starters of the game (Héricendre, Brindibou and Moustillon) would also have regional forms for their latest evolutions (respectively Typhlosion, Archeduc and Clamiral) as well as signature capacities. He adds that Clamiral and Hisui’s Typhlosion would be quite similar to their base form, with Clamiral still having four legs.

A spin-off in the vein of Pokémon Let’s Go?

After the announcement that the game would not be a unique open-world But a set of wide open areas, this information, if proven once again, has been a further disillusionment among a fringe of fans of the franchise. However, another part of the players tried to justify the absence of its functionalities thanks to the context of the game. Since the title is set in an era before those of the main episodes, humans in that period may not yet have fully grasped how Pokémon work., which would explain why they are not able to make them reproduce with each other or make them hold an object.

On the other hand, we can also understand the absence of these aspects that make it possible to make the Pokémon competitive by the fact that the title will not offer to face other players. Thus, the only multiplayer dimension of the title remains the exchange of Pokémon, as in all the games of the franchise, since The Pokémon Company has already confirmed that Pokémon Legends: Arceus will not contain Link Battles or Ranked Battles in a statement. Press release which confirms once again that this title was above all thought of as a solo adventure.

By these many missing elements (again, if these leaks are true), Pokémon legend: Arceus would therefore be a more accessible adventure in terms of RPG mechanics as was Pokémon Let’s Go Pikachu / Eevee. Indeed, we find in these two titles the same missing features vis-à-vis the games of the main series. However, the title will be less accessible than other games in the franchise because of its more action-oriented aspect which may destabilize those who are not used to it.

Finally, remember that all the information from these leaks should be taken with a grain of salt, especially when we see that Riddler Khu has passed his private Twitter account following these revelations. In any case, answer on January 28 to find out what Pokémon Legends: Arceus really has in store for us.
