Pokemon Legends Arceus merchandise collection

The Pokemon Company has revealed a new Pokemon merchandise lineup based on the upcoming title, Pokemon Legends: Arceus. These items will go on sale in Japan on January 28, 2022, the same day the game releases. In addition to physical Pokemon Center stores, the items will also appear on the franchise’s official Amazon store on the same day.

Some of the highlighted items in the lineup will feature Arceus and other Hisuian Pokemon. New plushes of Arceus and Hisuian Growlithe will be available at ¥4,950 (~$43.50) and ¥1,815 (~$15.95), respectively. The Arceus-shaped phone case will be compatible with iPhone SE (2nd generation) 6 to 8. The collection will also include a pouch shaped after the Hisuian Poke Ball and a traditional coat inspired by the protagonist’s attire in Pokemon Legends: Arceus.

Pokemon Legends: Arceus will take place in the Sinnoh region when it was known as the Hisui region. Players will explore the still-undeveloped land and gather information about the region’s native Pokemon to compile a Pokedex. The game will also introduce new evolutions for existing Pokemon, such as Wyrdeer and Basculegion.

Pokemon Legends: Arceus will officially release worldwide on Nintendo Switch on January 28, 2022. Those who do not want spoilers will have to watch out for online leaks from retail copies that have circulated earlier.
