Pokemon Legends: Arceus is still a little over a week from releasing but unfortunately the game is already out in the wild. With the game in players' hands and the internet clamoring for every piece of information they can get their hands on we wanted to round up all of the new Pokemon that will appear in the Hisui region. In this Pokemon Legends: Arceus Every New Pokemon and Forms Guide we'll go over which Pokemon are getting new evolutions, which Pokemon are getting Hisuian forms, and which have new special forms.

We will be including pictures of the new Pokemon as they've been circling the internet so if you don't want to have these evolutions and new Pokemon spoiled then now is the time to turn away! As more information is revealed about the games including any evolution requirements we will be adding them below.

 

Each Pokemon's abilities, hidden abilities, EVs, and IVs will also be listed. It's important to note though that Pokemon do not have abilities in Pokemon Legends: Arceus so any shown below will be abilities once they become available to transfer to Pokemon Home.

Pokemon Legends Arceus New Hisuian Evolutions

A number of the Pokemon listed above come from Pokemon who have branched evolutions that rely on trades to evolve. Pokemon Legends: Arceus does not have multiplayer functionality for the trading of Pokemon, instead a trade evolution will likely be completed by using the item Linking Cord. In its description, it explains "A string exuding a mysterious energy that makes you feel a strange sense of connection. It’s loved by certain Pokémon."
