Pokémon Legends: Arceus is here, bringing a ton of new alterations to the classic gaming property. And some of them are sure to anger long-time fans. While Pokémon Legends Arceus has a gorgeous art style, it undeniably has bad graphics as well. But outside of the visual style, there’s some gameplay changes that are gong to irritate some Trainers.
With the amount of shiny hunting that’s going to be happening here, it’s a pretty valid expectation. But sadly, that’s not the case here. The simple fact is that you cannot breed Pokémon in Pokémon Legends: Arceus. That puts an end to many methods for competitive play. And though there’s an in-universe justification for this, players aren’t going to like the choice.
Fans that enjoy breeding, use it to get competitive Pokémon, or use it for shiny hunting, will not be able to breed Pokémon in Pokémon Legends: Arceus. This game is a definite departure for the franchise. This change pushes away a lot of players who like shiny hunting via eggs. But to make up for it, shiny hunting is just a bit easier.
There are numerous other changes in Pokémon Legends: Arceus that players might want to complain about. THe changes to evolutions are sure to anger some players, but that’s not all. The added complications around healing and revivals, with the Base Camps system, is a pretty big change. At the very least, modern systems like fast travel remain in place.
