Rumours surrounding Pokemon Legends: Arceus have been shared online and hint towards Hisuian form Mewtwo, new legendaries, and more. 

Twitter user @CentroLeaks - who is known for sharing information about upcoming Pokemon games before their release - has said that Pokemon Legends: Arceus will potentially feature a number of exciting things including: A new legendary quartet, Hisuian Mewtwo, and potentially future DLC that will re-introduce Primal forms of Dialga, Palkia, and Giratina to the game.

Although just a rumor at the moment, Centro Leaks' claims aren't too far from the realms of possibility. First of all, a Hisuian Mewtwo wouldn't be too far of a stretch considering developer Game Freak has already unveiled two other Hisuian region Pokemon Growlithe and Braviary, meaning it wouldn’t be much of a surprise if we saw more of them introduced soon.

Not only this but bringing back gen 4 legendaries Dialga, Palkia, and Giratina in their Primal Forms not only aligns with the release of the Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl remakes - which are getting released next month - but also replicates the gen 3 remakes (Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire) which introduced Primal Forms. 

Centro Leaks' tweet also said that Pokemon Legends: Arceus will include a new uncatchable Arceus form, and a new mythical Pokemon - although as the tweet points out this is kind of a given. 

Like most leaks though, this one is definitely to be taken with a grain of salt, especially since the source of the information has said that they are unable to verify the source of these claims. Pokemon: Legends Arceus isn’t due to release until January 28, 2022, however, there’s still been a lot of details revealed about the game so far.  

It was also recently revealed by The Pokemon Company that despite being marketed as an "open-world game," Pokemon Legends: Arceus will actually feature open-world areas instead. This news comes after one Pokemon expert analyzed Legends: Arceus’ map and theorized that it would work more like Monster Hunter or Xenoblade Chronicles 2 and instead have segmented open areas.

After studying Film Studies and Creative Writing at University, I was lucky enough to land a job as an intern at Player Two PR where I helped to release a number of indie titles. I then got even luckier when I became GamesRadar's trainee news writer where I get to spread the word about the goings-on in the video game world. My expertise lies in Animal Crossing related topics after spending the last 15 years immersing myself in island life. I also know a thing or two about The Last of Us, and way too much about the Kingdom Hearts series.
