Pokemon Legends: Arceus is the first Pokemon game to travel to the past. The newest chapter of this franchise will bring the action to a time before Trainers and Pokemon League.
The game left behind the formula of youngsters trainers traveling far to become the Champion and occasionally stop criminal organizations trying to harm the Pokemon.
Instead, we have a Pokemon game focused on World Exploration that sometimes feels like a child-friendly version of Monster Hunter. There are no gyms or badges, the challenge is to dive into the Wild to capture these creatures and be amazed by their endearing nature.
The last time Nintendo tried to change their bulletproof formula was in Pokemon Sun and Moon, when players have to complete trials instead of getting badges, it didn't play well but those were also different times.
Pokemon Legends: Arceus Time Play
Without Gym or Pokemon League to win, players are wondering how long does it take to beat Pokemon Legends: Arceus?
Reviewers weren't allowed to reveal any information in regard to the Story. Although Pokemon Legends: Arceus was leaked prematurely.
Poryleeks is one of those that got an unofficial copy of the game. The leaker considered that the Main Quest takes around 30-35hrs to complete.
The game will include different Side Quests that will add additional hours of Game Play. It is also essential to consider that Modern Consoles can use DLC to expand their adventures, even including new game modes.
Pokemon Legends: Arceus seems fresh and can totally follow Wolrd Exploration formulas based in World Exploration as games like Zelda: Breath of the Wild or Genshin Impact.
How big is the Pokedex in Pokemon Legends: Arceus?
Another critical factor to consider when we talk about Play Time of a Pokemon Game is how long is the roster of Pokemon.
Especially in a game like Pokemon Legends: Arceus, the goal is to complete the first Pokedex.
Based on leaks from data-miners, the number oscillated from 250 to 300 Pokemon. But, we think we can expect more, considering that the remake of Pokemon BDSP has around 500.
