All Pokemon missing from Pokemon Legends Arceus

missing pokemon in pokemon legends arceusGame Freak / The Pokemon Company

With the Hisui region featuring ‘mon from almost every Gen, some didn’t make the cut. Here’s who is missing from Pokemon Legends Arceus.

Despite being wished for by many, the Sinnoh origins title doesn’t have the National Pokedex, instead opting to pick select characters from almost every Generation.

Though the game does bring new forms and Pokemon, there are some classics missing from the Hisui region entirely.
