Pokémon Legends Arceus looks to be the prequel that fans have always wanted. A game that recreates the magic of television shows allowing players to adventure out into the wild and catch Pokémon like a real trainer. From the trailer, we can see that they've reworked the catching system, given a new look to the environments, and we even get a small glimpse of a battle.

Here are three features we want to see in Pokemon Legends Arceus:

Pokémon Legends Arceus: 3 Features We Want to See

True Open World

One thing that the new Pokémon games got right was transforming the regular top-down worlds we saw into real 3D environments. However, although the look changed these were still very one-directional environments players followed the games pathing under the illusion of free-roaming. Pokémon Legends is a chance to allow players to experience all that the Sinnoh region has to offer from its deepest caves to its tallest mountains.

New Battle Animations

This could be a long shot because of all the changes we're already getting to the base game but if they're pushing for something similar to the series they might as well go big. Fans new and old would flock to the game if Pokemon could even get into the air to execute a move. Some of these animations have been used in the game forever, it's time for a tune-up.

Return of the Battle Zone

One of the best parts of Sinnoh Region was the post-game content. After defeating the Elite 4 players unlock the Battle Tower/Battle Frontier, Ribbon Syndicate, and Battle Frontier. With a new look and hopefully new battle system they'll definitely be able to recreate the thrill and excitement.
