Pokémon Legends: Arceus is set to feature new evolutionary forms of its classic starter Pokémon when it launches for Nintendo Switch on Friday, January 28.
As per the YouTube description for the game’s latest trailer (which can also be seen below), Pokémon Legends: Arceus will seemingly treat Cyndaquil, Oshawott, and Rowlet to their very own Hisuian final form evolutions.
“You may have met Dartrix, Quilava, and Dewott in your other adventures,” reads a statement beneath the YouTube video. “But you’ve never encountered their Hisui region Evolutions.”
While the trailer itself doesn’t show off any of the three final form evolutions, it does treat fans to a further look at the Hisui region and what it has to offer. Across the clip, fans can take another look at the different ways they’ll be able to utilise Pokémon to travel around the region as well as further chances to check out noble Pokémon and the game’s wider landscape.
In addition to the trailer, the official website for Pokémon Legends: Arceus did show off silhouettes for the starters’ Hisuian final forms, which can be seen below.
In other recent Pokémon news, reports around the internet last week suggested that a great detail of the game’s material including the opening movie, a range of new Pokémon, and story elements had been leaked online. The reports followed images that cropped up online showing fans holding boxed copies of the game that had seemingly been sent out early by mistake. With only a few days left until Pokémon Legends: Arceus officially releases, this is once again your friendly reminder to stay cautious on social media for a little while longer.
