Hisuian Voltorb was officially revealed for Pokemon Legends Arceus with just over a month left before the title launces.

While there will be brand new Pokemon in the Hisui Region, there will also be new regional variants. These are pre-existing Pokemon that take on a new form depending on their location.

For example, Growlithe is a dog-like Pokemon that originated in the Kanto region. However, in one of the first trailers for Pokemon Legends Arceus revealed his new Hisuian form which changes his appearance slightly. Regional variants can also have different typings and evolutionary lines.

Voltorb is a Pokemon that looks identical to a Poke Ball. It is also notorious for using the move “self-destruct.” In fact, many shiny hunters have failed to catch shiny Voltorb because they weren’t prepared for its explosive moves.


More Hisuian forms are expected to be announced in the lead up to Arceus to hype up the open-world RPG.
