Pokémon Legends: Arceus brings Trainers to the Sinnoh region as it existed in the past, long before the setting for Pokémon Diamond and Pokémon Pearl was established. Rich in nature and with Mount Coronet towering at its heart, this is a Sinnoh unlike anything Trainers have experienced before as they embark to create the region’s first Pokédex. Players get to chance to explore Sinnoh, study wild pokemon and their habitats, also a chance to study their behaviors as well. This will be available on the Switch in Early 2022.

As mentioned in June 2020, New Pokemon Snap will give players a chance to start as a Pokemon Photographer in a brand new land called the Lental Region. There they will work with Professor Mirror (Yep, we’re going with Puns apparently), the region’s expert, on an ecological survey to photograph Pokémon thriving in nature. Wild Pokémon thrive on the islands of the Lental region, where environments can differ greatly, making for a variety of habitats where different Pokémon expressions and behaviors can be observed. Players will be able to get their attention by playing a melody or throwing fluffruit. They’ll also be able to use an Illumina orb (an invention of Professor Mirror’s) on Pokémon to witness something out of the ordinary. They can even use their camera to run scans, which can help them find hidden Pokémon or inspect their surroundings. As players keep researching a course, their research-level there will increase, and they may discover Pokémon acting in different ways. Trainers may even encounter Legendary Pokémon or Mythical Pokémon. This will be available on April 30th, 2021 for the Nintendo Switch family of Systems.
