In these gameplay trailers and other promotional material we often see Pokemon Wardens, which are the main characters that will replace trainers and gym leaders in Legends: Arceus. If you’ve seen these trailers and have also played previous games taking place in the Sinnoh region, such as Diamond & Pearl or BDSP, then you might recognize some features in these new characters. Many of these Wardens closely resemble older characters from previous games in the Sinnoh region. This isn’t by coincidence.
They’re Related to BDSP Characters
Pokémon Legends: Arceus takes place in the Hisui region. At first players might think this is a different region from Sinnoh until you notice that this game also takes place in a different time period. This game is actually set in the same location as the Sinnoh region but in the past by possibly hundreds of years. This means the characters we see appear in the Sinnoh region look similar to these Hisui characters because they’re related. It’s fairly obvious with some characters similarities like Arezu from LA and Mars from BDSP. Even Professor Rowan from BDSP has an ancestor from Hisui, the leader of the Galaxy Team, Kamado.
Galaxy Team vs Team Galactic
The Galaxy Expedition Team is the name of the team of wardens you’ll meet in Pokémon Legends: Arceus. This name is very similar to the team in Sinnoh, Team Galactic. The Galaxy Team’s duty is to protect Noble Pokémon and you’ll help them with this task on your journey. In the previous games (Brilliant Diamond $ Shining Pearl), taking place in the future, you’ll find you’re not helping these characters, as they’re your opponent. They’re gym leaders that are known for criminal activity. Many people’s theory is that over time, the Galaxy Team lost sight of their mission and became corrupt, leading them to become the enemy team we see in Sinnoh. This could also be thanks to the leader, Cyrus, becoming power hungry and basically wanting to rule the galaxy.
