Pokemon Legends: Arceus is a new take on the traditional Pokemon formula. Players explore zones and can capture Pokemon by directly throwing Pokeballs at them. Battles still exist in a similar capacity, but players are also tasked with avoiding dangerous attacks when approaching wild Pokemon. Additionally, it features crafting mechanics that allow players to directly create any resources they use, including Pokeballs and other consumables.

The way players collect information on Pokemon has also changed in this title. Instead of capturing a single Pokemon to fill out an entry, players need to complete extra requirements to fill out their Pokedex. These can include capturing Pokemon of a specific size or capturing a set amount of the same Pokemon.

Pokemon Legends: Arceus is available worldwide on Nintendo Switch.
