Will Pokemon Legends Arceus Have DLC? Theories and Predictions

PokePatch Pokemon Legends Arceus DLC predictions

Pokemon Legends Arceus is the newest upcoming game in the Pokemon franchise. This title explores new game mechanics in a completely new region and time period. With all of that being said, there’s already a lot of hype for this game. Obviously there will be a lot of players on launch for this reason and it seems like we’ll have a lot of content to explore just based on the massive size of the map alone. The question is already being asked, after the game has been complete by a majority of the players will there be DLC?

Will There Be DLC?

Since the game hasn’t released yet, as the time of publishing this article, there is no way for us to know for sure if there will be DLC for Pokemon Legends Arceus. But we already have a hint of what the lore might look like and it gives us a pretty good idea of what extra downloadable content might look like.

When Will DLC Come Out?

The only hint as to when DLC will be released is to look at previous Pokemon games. Sword and Shield’s first expansion, The Isle of Armor, released about 7 months after the base game came out and its last DLC, The Crown Tundra was a year after SwSh. So if there will be an expansion for Legends Arceus, we’ll expect it to be released 7 to 12 months after the game first releases.

DLC Predictions

Obviously Arceus is the main Pokemon in this game. Arceus is seen as a god in the Pokemon world, as they created Dialga (time), Palkia (matter), and Giratina (antimatter). It seems like Dialga and Palkia will be center stage in Legends Arceus. The wardens of the Diamond and Pearl clans are themed after Dialga and Palkia. That leaves one Pokemon left that came from Arceus, Giratina. Though, Giratina is closely related to Arceus, we never see it in any trailers or promotional material. This could mean Giratina is an endgame Pokemon, like a final boss, or they’re saving this Pokemon for DLC.
