just is Pokémon Legends: Arceus fresh on the Nintendo Switch appeared, we’re already looking into the rumor mill what we can expect next with the Pokémon series. The portal Centro LEAKS dug up a leak from mid-October, which hardly anyone believed to be true at the time. This hinted at many Pokémon innovations in Pokémon Legends: Arceus, which we won’t go into detail here because they could contain spoilers. All of the innovations hinted at by this leaker came true in the final game, and some of it wasn’t discovered until the first players got their hands on the game. As much of that has come true, in this news we want to look at what may yet come true.
Pokémon Legends: Arceus is getting new DLC content in 2022
The leaker is sure it does DLC content for Pokémon Legends: Arceus this year, so far she has not revealed GAME FREAK. At the moment the game includes around 240 Pokémon, GAME FREAK is said to be aiming for a Pokédex of around 400 pocket monsters. So you could expect 160 more Pokémon to be added to the game via DLC content.
The ninth generation of Pokémon could appear later this year
Parallel to the DLC content will obviously be at the ninth generation of Pokémon filed. Although this is not really surprising more than two years after the start of the eighth generation, the games are said to have progressed so far that they could still (as of summer 2021) appear in the current year. If development hasn’t been delayed, we could see games from a new Pokémon generation by the end of the year, which would help Nintendo’s Christmas business enormously. In the past, a new generation of Pokémon was typically introduced every two to four years.
As always with rumours: Don’t take these as established facts seriously, even if the leaker has been right several times, he may have been wrong due to incorrect information. However, if the rumors are true, 2022 could be a big Pokémon year.
Do you think it’s realistic for GAME FREAK to work in parallel on DLC content for Pokémon Legends: Arceus and the ninth generation of Pokémon?
