The exciting new addition to the Pokemon series, Pokemon Legends: Arceus, is also bringing brand new Pokemon to add to the Pokedex.
These four new Pokemon will be wandering the Hisui Region in the open-world game just waiting to be discovered. Two of them are brand new evolutions of already-existing Pokemon, while the other two are Pokemon you already know but influenced by their existence in the Hisui Region. They look different to their Pokecousins as they have grown up in an environment that they have had to adapt to.
The Wyrdeer is an all-new Pokemon to add to the Pokedex in Legends: Arceus. This noble creature is an evolution of the Stantler and has adapted to the cold environment it exists in. The Wyrdeer is a Normal/Psychic Pokemon type, and is considered very useful by those who live nearby- its fur is shed and used by people to create warm clothing, and it can be ridden as long as you hold on to its antlers!
The Basculegion is an evolution of the Basculin who has absorbed the souls of those Basculin in its school who have failed to complete the treacherous journey upstream. The rare Water/Ghost evolution is powerful and strong, and can carry people on its back on journeys along rivers.
The Hisuian Growlithe may be somewhat familiar to players but this one looks a little different. Thanks to the cold environment the Hisuian Growlithe has grown thick fur around its face to stay warm. It also has a small sharp horn on its head which it uses in emergencies as it is brittle and breaks easily. The Fire/Rock type is shy and takes a little time to get used to humans, so take your time getting to know one.
The Hisuian Braviary is a new form of Braviary, which may be known to some players. A Hisuian Braviary is an evolution of Rufflets which live in the Hisui Region, and are lone creatures. It is a larger version of its Braviary cousin, and uses its Psychic powers to screech enemies into oblivion, or grab at the with its super sharp talons.
Pokemon Legends: Arceus is out in 2022 on Nintendo Switch.
