According to early leaks, Pokemon Go and Legends Arceus will soon be coming together as Hisuian forms appear to be set for arrival in the mobile game in the very near future.
The world of Pokemon is a deep and storied one filled with stories from across several different continents. From Johto to Alola, Pokemon Go has been the only place where most of the franchise’s 800+ pocket monsters can together free of their usual boundaries.
Legends Arceus’ Hisuian forms are coming to Pokemon Go
A leak from PokeMiners has confirmed several file names that hint toward the arrival of Hisuian forms, with the already beloved Voltorb specifically being name-dropped.
Some other files include new Hisuian display panels and headers, all but confirming that Voltorb will not be showing up alone when the time comes.
As with the Alolan and Galarian alternatives that are already in PoGo, these forms are expected to bring along some new looks as well as evolution options and movesets for the ‘mon of this new region.
