Pokémon Legends: Arceus trailer introduces new characters, details

Following the reveal of Hisuian Voltorb, we’re already getting more Pokémon Legends: Arceus news!

Meet the Diamond and Pearl Clans

While you are a member of the Galaxy Expedition Team, there are also the Diamond Clan and Pearl Clans. The Diamond Clan values the time they’re living in and and want to cherish each moment, while the Pearl Clan puts the space they’re given at a premium.

Each clan respects a specific noble Pokémon. Adaman is the leader of the Diamond Clan and is partners with leafeon, while Irida is the leader of the Pearl Clan and is partners with Glaceon.

Ginkgo Guild

In addition to the two clans, there is also the Ginkgo Guild, whose merchants will sell you various goods. These traveling salesmen are not native to the Hisui region.

There were also some new items that were shown being sold from these merchants which are part of the crafting system:

  • Vivichoke: Also called a morning-dew bud. It is used as a material for crafting items that can restore vitality to a Pokémon that has fainted.
  • Bugwort: A wildflower that can be found growing across the Hisui region. It does have medicinal properties, but it is so bitter that no wild Pokémon will eat it.
  • Swordcap: Mushrooms that, when consumed, cause the muscles to swell. They imbue the eater with strength and are one of the materials needed for crafting Aux Powers.

Darkrai encounter and Team Galactic outfit

If you have save data from Pokémon Brilliant Diamond or Shining Pearl, you’ll get a special research request that allows you to encounter Darkrai! You’ll also receive an outfit resembling the modern Team Galactic outfit, aptly named the ‘Modern Team Galactic Set’.
