Pokemon Legends: Arceus was a groundbreaking game that shattered the traditional concept of the main series. Its success and the accolades it received warrant a sequel set in various regions, as recent leaks suggest in the Pokemon Scarlet and Violet DLC hints.
The potential for a Pokemon Legends: Unova game appears promising, especially considering that Pokemon Legends: Arceus left many storylines unresolved. Players would appreciate a sequel to piece together the puzzle and delve into new narratives.
The recent leaks in the Pokemon Scarlet and Violet DLCs, particularly the introduction of Blood Moon Ursaluna and Perrin, hint at a connection between the modern games and Pokemon Legends: Arceus. This could foreshadow the future of the spin-off series and potentially lead to new missions and interactions in upcoming games.
Pokemon Scarlet and Violet were, and continue to be, groundbreaking games when considering the numerous traditions of the main series that they definitively shattered. There is a possibility that their upcoming expansions will follow in these footsteps. However, it is challenging to determine whether Gen 9 was the most innovative in recent times, as it followed one of the Pokemon games that broke the traditional concept the most, namely Pokemon Legends: Arceus. With a completely different foundation, the title not only managed to captivate many fans but also garnered enough praise to justify a continuation of Pokemon Legends in various regions. Recent leaks regarding the Pokemon Scarlet and Violet DLCs could further corroborate this notion.
After the immense success of the original, it is only natural that a sequel to Pokemon Legends takes place. Above all, this could be a fantastic opportunity for the series to explore the stories of each region from a different perspective and offer players new narratives. The potential for additional regional forms or evolutions is also incredibly high, as demonstrated by most Hisuian creatures, with Ursaluna remaining a favorite for many. "The Teal Mask" in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet appears to acknowledge this, and Game Freak has the perfect blueprint for another spin-off adventure.
Pokemon Legends: Arceus Could Get a Sequel After Gen 9's The Teal MaskInterestingly, Pokemon Legends: Arceus didn't get paid DLCs or expansions despite it leaving many plot threads hanging, such as the odd time-traveling storyline involving Ingo from Pokemon Black and White or Alder's pictures found in a clan encampment. With this premise, a sequel seems not only obvious, but also something that players would be thankful for due to how satisfying piecing the puzzle together could feel, especially if a game like Pokemon Legends: Unova ends up being in the cards alongside Gen 5 remakes.
The recent leaks of "The Teal Mask" in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet on the internet reveal some intriguing additions for the 9th generation. One of them stands out prominently, and that is Blood Moon Ursaluna. Apparently, Ursaluna has found its way to the land of Kitakami, where it has undergone a transformation over time, becoming something different - purportedly a Ground/Steel Pokemon, making it challenging to determine whether it is a regional form or something else entirely. The allusion to the Hisui region and Ursaluna itself is already fascinating, but the DLC also introduces a host of new characters, one of whom might be a familiar face.
The latest trailers for the DLCs "The Teal Mask" and "The Indigo Disk" showcased Perrin, a photographer who bears a striking resemblance to Adaman, the leader of the Diamond Clan in Pokemon Legends: Arceus. In fact, the prevailing theory suggests that Perrin is a descendant of Adaman. However, what is even more peculiar is that she appears to be pursuing a mysterious and rare creature, which according to datamines, could very well be Blood Moon Ursaluna. This further strengthens the connection between the modern games and Pokemon Legends: Arceus.
If this is indeed the case, it is highly unlikely that all these references to Pokemon Legends: Arceus in the post-release content for the Gen 9 games are mere coincidences, especially with the upcoming Pokemon Presents event in February. Considering other oddly timed references to Gen 5 in the Pokemon Scarlet and Violet DLCs, such as "The Indigo Disk," one could argue that an announcement for a Pokemon Legends: Unova game next year would make perfect sense. Furthermore, Blood Moon Ursaluna could potentially indicate a new Pokemon Legends game with in-game missions or interactions, and all of this bodes well for the future of the spin-off.
Pokemon Scarlet and Violet are now available for the Nintendo Switch.
