Pokemon Legend: Arceus took everything you’ve come to know and love about the Pokemon world and turned it into an incredible open world adventure. It’s a breath of fresh air for a series that’s been in need of a major makeover for a long time. Have a lot of you need to know about the gameincluding the fact that Pokemon Legends: Arceus is set earlier than any previous Pokemon game.
The unique setup of Pokemon Legends: Arceus allows Game Freak, the game’s developer, to include numerous references, hidden details, and easter eggs into the game. Here are some things you totally miss in Pokemon Legends: Arceus.
Early in your journey, you are introduced to Commander Kamado, the boss of Team Galactic. He wears a gorgeous black kimono with a sleek Golduck design on the bottom. Upon closer inspection, you may notice that Kamado looks a lot like a different person.
It turns out that Kamado is one of Professor Rowan’s ancestors. Professor Rowan is the resident Pokemon Professor of the Sinnoh region in the game Diamond and Pearl. He lives in Sandgem Town and is the one who introduces you to the world of Pokemon as you create your character. These two characters have so much in common that it’s no surprise that they’re actually related.
There are many characters in Pokemon Legends: Arceus that are similar to the characters in the game Diamond and Pearl. Captain Cyllene is the captain of the Survey Corps and the boss of the player character. She is very strict and resembles Galactic Boss Cyrus from Diamond and Pearl. They have the same hair color, similar personalities, and names that start with “cy,” so it wouldn’t be surprising to learn that Cyllene was one of Cyrus’ ancestors.
Diamond Clan’s Warden Arezu resembles Commander Mars, one of Team Galactic’s three commanders, as they have almost identical hairstyles. Diamond Clan’s Warden Mai looks a lot like Marley. Marley specializes in Pokemon with high speed and can be found in Victory Road, Battle Tower, and Sinnoh’s Battlefield. There may be many other characters who also have similarities.
Diamond clan and pearl clan
Finally, you are introduced to the Diamond Clan and the Pearl Clan, with Adaman and Irida representing both clans respectively. That is, of course, the same name for the Generation IV games and their remakes.
Each of these clans worships a being they call “the almighty Sinnoh.” With that said, each has their own interpretation of who is truly the almighty Sinnoh. According to the Diamond Clan, we believe it to be Dialga, the legendary Pokemon that created time. According to the Pearl Clan, we believe it’s Palkia, the legendary Pokemon that created space. In fact, we know it was Arceus who created Dialga, Palkia, and even Giratina.
Stealth Rock deals direct damage
Pokemon Legends: Arceus made some big improvements to battle with adds agile and powerful style moves. The game has also changed some of the already existing moves, such as Stealth Rock. This move is initially an intrusive dangerous move that deals no damage but only damages Pokemon that are transferred into battle. Its damage depends on the effect of Rock-type attacks on the target.
Now, in Pokemon Legends: Arceus, this move deals direct damage, followed by more damage per turn. It completely changed everything about Stealth Rock. To be honest, the move in the previous state won’t actually work in Pokemon Legends: Arceus, but whether this change is here to stay is unclear.
General Pokemon Sprites
While it’s great to see how awesome Pokemon looks now in 3D, there was a time when Pokemon was a purely 2D game. When you check out your party in Pokemon Red, Blue, and Yellow, you’ll see very simple drawings of the Pokemon in your party. Given the restrictions at the time, not every Pokemon had a single sprite. There is only one common sprite used to cover multiple Pokemon with the same structure.
Once you reach the entrance to the area of Kleavor, the first noble Pokemon you fight in Pokemon Legends: Arceus, you can see these generic drawings on each of the two banners. It’s a fun little reference to the generic sprites used in earlier games.
Floaro Garden becomes Floaroma Town
In Pokemon Diamond and Pearl, Floaroma Town is a beautiful place full of flowers that are visible to the naked eye, but not always. It is said that Floaroma Town was once a barren place without any flowers. No matter how many flowers are planted, nothing will grow, which keeps both humans and Pokemon away from this area.
Yes some great side quests in Pokemon Legends: Arceus and, after progressing through the game, you will eventually reach Floraro Garden. There, you’ll notice that it’s an empty garden with flowers that can’t seem to grow. Can Floaro Gardens become the site of Floaroma Town? It definitely looks like it.
Your first encounter with an alpha Pokemon will likely be Kricketune. You might see a level 40 Rapidash before it, but good luck catching it early in the game. Kricketune is known for its unique cry that has become a meme in the Pokemon community. Kricketune’s melodious cry is often written as “delelewoooooooop.”
When you fight Kricketune in Pokemon Legends: Arceus, his cry is written “De-le-le-woooooooooooooop!” means Game Freak has accepted the meme. You’ll definitely want to catch this alpha Pokemon and may even find yourself taking it out of its Poke Ball just to hear that awesome cry.
Legend of the Sea
Some requirements in Pokemon Legends: Arceus are very simple while others make you scratch your head. If you haven’t played Brilliant Diamond or Shining Pearl, you’ll probably never figure out how to solve The Sea’s Legend. All Professor Laventon tells you is that this particular Pokemon can be found in the Cobalt Coastlands, but the rest is up to you.
If you read the book “Legends of the Sea” in the Canalave City library in Brilliant Diamond or the Shining Pearl, you’ll know to bring Mantyke, Buizel and Overqwil to the Cobalt Coastlands. You’ll find the legendary Pokemon Manaphy there in the Northwest of Cape Veilstone. You’ll want to catch as many Pokemon as possible upgrade your star rating and getting Manaphy is definitely on your party list.
