Just a few weeks before the release of the Pokémon Legends RPG Arceus, part of the Pokédex has just leaked, and with it several important information on Nintendo’s next game.
The output of Pokémon Legends Arceus is expected in a few weeks, and while Nintendo is counting on the game to breathe new life into the license, rumors are intensifying as the release approaches.
New forms of Hisui
Introduced with Pokémon Sun and Moon in 2016, regional forms quickly became the signature of each new region visited. On the Alola archipelago or in the outskirts of Galar, these alternative versions of pocket monsters have the particularity not only of adopting a original appearance – induced by its environment, but also to sometimes afford a different type of its original model.
Unsurprisingly, the feudal region of Hisui – which would later become Sinnoh episodes Diamond and Pearl – is no exception to the rule. In Pokémon Legends Arceus players will thus be able to meet several new creatures, which appeared at a time when humans and Pokémon did not yet coexist. For a few months now, Nintendo had confirmed the existence of these special Pokémon, in formalizing five forms of Hisui : Caninos (which becomes Rock / Fire), Voltobre (Plant / Electric), the duo Zorua and Zoroark (Normal / Specter), as well as Gueriaigle (Psy / Vol).
New Pokémon that will logically not be the only ones to adopt the style of Hisui. The CentroLeaks Twitter account, already the source of several gameplay leaks, has just shared the (almost) complete list of regional forms of Pokémon Legends Arceus. The opportunity to learn a little more about the next success of Big N.
– Hisuian Decidueye: Grass / Fighting
– Hisuian Samurott: Water / Dark

Archeduc of Hisui: Plant / Combat
Clamiral of Hisui: Water / Dark
Hisui Typhlosion: Fire / Specter
Hisui’s Qwilfish (and its evolution): Darkness / Poison
Hisui’s Farfuret (and its evolution): Poison / Combat
Ursaring Evolution: Ground / Normal
Hisui’s Fragilady: Plant / Fight
Only Pokémon # 905 has not yet been found.
In total, therefore, it is more thanaround ten regional forms which should enrich Hisui’s Pokédex. A leak to be taken obviously with the tweezers of rigor, but which allows to note several interesting clues on Pokémon Legends Arceus : first of all, the three starters will each be entitled to their regional version. Which suggests some surprises when choosing your adventure companion. Then, this also confirms the presence of several new Pokémon. To this day, Ursaring and Qwilfish, both of which appeared in the second generation, have no existing evolution.
If it will take a few more weeks to patiently endure, it is clear that in 2022, Nintendo has planned to put our eyes on us with its ambitious RPG prequel. In the meantime, it is still possible to pre-order Pokémon Legends Arceus, and experience the modern Sinnoh region in the remake of Sparkling Diamond and Sparkling Pearl Pokémon, released at the end of last year.
