Pokémon legends Arceus: revealed Voltorb in a trailer, the new verson of Hisui

Pokémon legends Arceus

Pokémon Legends: Arceus has got a new trailer, all about Voltorb, in its particular variant of Hisui, one of the first creatures originating from the new land shown in the game to get an official presentation.

This is the Hisui version of Voltorb, a Pokémon already known previously, which in this form is a little bigger and with a different "look", so to speak. The conformation of the body also appears quite different, presenting itself as akin to an older technology in line with the whole setting of Arceus Pokémon Legends.

The game in question is in fact set in an era that reflects Japan medieval, with Hisui being essentially the ancient version of Sinnoh, long before the events narrated at the beginning of the first Pokémon series. In practice, the part above takes up the classic style of red color, but the one below seems to be in wood, in line with the materials typical of the era in which it is found.

Voltorb is an electric type Pokémon / grass, one of the few characterized by this particular combination. The trailer also shows its special abilities related to the use of electricity and the ways in which it can also be used to interact with scenarios, for example when it is thrown into trees to make fruits fall.

This feature, however, had already emerged in the teaser published yesterday on the news related to the Pokéballs. According to an insider, Pokémon Legends: Arceus may be the longest and largest game in the series.

Pokemon Legends: Arceus Will Get Hisuian Voltorb

Pokemon Legends: Arceus is putting a new (old) spin on some of the classic pocket monsters of the franchise, and the latest critter getting a new look is Voltorb. The official Pokemon Twitter account showed off a version of Voltorb that has a more artisanal design, one that looks more in line with the handcrafted wooden Poke Balls used in the Hisui region of the game.

Like other Pokemon of this region, Voltorb's elemental composition has been changed up. Traditionally an Electric-type Pokemon, the Hisui variant is a hybrid Grass and Electric-type. It's also quite friendly, sprouts seeds from the hole in its head, and possesses a pitch-dark core that not even the brightest of lights can illuminate. Another example of a Pokemon that looks cute and hides a messed-up backstory in its design, which seems to be a running theme in the game.

'This Pokémon is always in high spirits and has a friendly personality. However, it discharges its stored electricity all at once from the hole in its head when it gets excited, so it frequently shocks humans and Pokémon in its vicinity,' the Pokemon Legends website's description of Voltorb reads. 'Even the slightest provocation can set off such a discharge, so in human settlements, Hisuian Voltorb is considered a nuisance. Tales of people temporarily plugging the hole on Hisuian Voltorb's head and kicking it out of settlements are not entirely uncommon.​'

In case you missed it, The Pokemon Company has been releasing a steady trickle of information on the new Pokemon you'll encounter in the ancient Sinnoh region. Noble Pokemon wander this land and Zoroark has received a Ghost-type upgrade. You'll have to wait until January 28 to play the game next year, although if you're looking for some early gameplay impressions before then, you can hear what Christina Aguilera's daughter thought of the game.
