Pokemon Legends: Arceus, the unreleased game taking place in the Hisui region, is featuring many new Pokémon because not only does the game take place in a new region but a different time. This combination is showing us new Pokémon we’ve never seen before and more familiar Pokemon that are regional forms. Today there was an official trailer that dropped revealing Hisuian Voltorb! Voltorb is a classic Pokemon from the 1st generation and hasn’t got much attention since then. That stops today, as we’ll be seeing a lot more of Voltorb and it’s evolution, Electrode in the upcoming game Legends: Arceus.
Old vs New
The first detail everyone notices with the old Voltorb character design is that it looks angry. It also just has that older look to it because of the colors and simplicity. The new Hisuian Voltorb doesn’t look as angry, has more saturated and vibrant colors. It also has two major changes being the wooden finish on the bottom, replicating the Pokeballs in the time period this game takes place in, and the hole on the top of it’s head.
Hisuian Voltorb’s Type
Regular Voltorb’s type is just electric but the new (or old) Hisuian Voltorb is a electric / grass type. This is because inside this new Voltorb is a bunch of seeds that it can use as a weapon by spouting them out of the hole in it’s head. It’s also known for shocking human and Pokemon when it gets excited but is very friendly and mostly does this involuntarily.
Where’s Hisuian Electrode?
We expect to see Hisuian Electrode’s character design to be revealed fairly soon but it could be longer than some expect because we still haven’t seen Growlithe’s evolution, Hisuian Arcanine’s regional form either. This means they’re probably saving these evolved forms to be released closer to launch day.
