2Pokémon Legends: Arceus

Pokemon Legends Arceus 1 (1)

Are you ready for a Pokémon game quite unlike any that have come before it? Taking players back in time, Pokémon Legends: Arceus tasks them with putting together the first Pokédex for the Hisui region. You’ll not find yourself going town-to-town, taking on Pokémon trainers and battling Gym Leaders though. Instead, you’ll be traversing a wide open world, and completing a large number of requests.

You will, of course, still be catching Pokémon. And while the gameplay is much more action-focused, throwing an occupied Pokéball at an enemy will initiate a good old-fashioned turn-based battle. But sometimes you’ll need to take matters into your own hands, throwing items such as bombs at out-of-control Pokémon in order to weaken them before throwing one or more of your Pokémon at them. So, if you’re after a Pokémon game that’s a little bit different to sink lots of time into, make sure you check Pokémon Legends: Arceus out. It’s definitely one of the best single-player games on Switch.
