Pokémon Legends: Arceus is the newest video game installment of the Pokémon franchise that comes out Janurary 28th, 2022. This game takes place long ago in the Hisui region, when Pokémon and humans didn’t interact much because people were afraid of them. Some new information has come to light about certain Pokémon that you’ll find while exploring the Hisui region in the upcoming game. It seems like we’ll come across Pokémon that are larger, stronger, and more hostile than what you normally see. There are two types of these and they’re called Noble and Alpha Pokémon.
What is a Noble Pokémon?
Pokémon Nobles in Legends: Arceus are special Pokémon in the Hisui region that have received a mysterious blessing of some sort. This blessing has made these Pokémon very powerful and are able to interact with humans more. With this power, the humans respect Nobles more than wild Pokémon and even are protected by people called wardens. Maybe well learn where this blessing came from when we explore the Hisui region, ourselves. In Legends Arceus, Noble Pokemon are becoming frenzied and more aggressive for unknown reasons. It’s your mission to quell these hostile, frenzied Nobles.
What is an Alpha Pokémon?
On your journey in the Hisui region, you’ll come across large Pokemon with glowing red eyes, these are Alpha Pokemon. Defeating these Alphas will prove to be difficult but don’t require balms to quell. Just battle them normally and they’ll drop rare items but be careful, It may take an entire team to beat these Pokemon. The reason for Noble and other Pokemon becoming aggressive is shrouded in mystery right now, but we should find out more information while we play through the game and encounter more of these Alpha and Noble Pokémon.
