Pokemon Legends Arceus

Pokemon Legends: Arceus is a game set in a feudal Sinnoh region, known then as Hisui. The player is sent back in time to catch all the Pokemon, help the Galaxy Team settle in the area, and solve a strange mystery with a distortion in the sky. This game is more open world than main series Pokemon games typically are, and features a different type of gameplay than usual.
