In the trailer, players are introduced to more of the Hisui region, the name of the area that you’ll be exploring in the game. Players may know the region as the Sinnoh region, but due to Pokémon Legends: Arceus taking place many years in the past, the region has a different name. Throughout the trailer, more gameplay is shown off, including how the new battle system works, with a new Action Order bar that displays which pokémon’s turn is next.

You can check out the new trailer for Pokémon Legends: Arceus below:

“As a member of the Galaxy Expedition Team, players will visit Jubilife Village, a bustling settlement that serves as a base of operations,” a new synopsis for the game reads. “After receiving an assignment or a request, Trainers will set out from the village to study one of the various areas of the Hisui region. After they finish their survey work, Trainers return to Jubilife Village to prepare for their next task.

“Whenever Trainers leave Jubilife Village to set out on an excursion, their first stop will be one of the base camps that will serve as an outpost for their work. These base camps are more than just starting points—Trainers can stop for a rest during an excursion, letting their team of Pokemon recover their health, or use a base camp’s workbench to craft items.”
