Pokémon Legends: Arceus has revealed a newly discovered Pokémon, Hisuian Voltorb.

Pokémon Legends: Arceus takes players back in time to the Hisui reigon, which would later be known as Sinnoh. Players complete the old-school, book-type Pokedex for research and studying Pokémon that will later join the Pokémon world we know where humans and Pokémon can live together in harmony.

The Hisuian Voltorb was announced by Nintendo and the offical Pokemon Twitter. A 'surprise' on the Pokemon Legends: Arceus website was released and fans could interact by "picking up poké balls".

The 'surprise' was revealed to be the discovery of the Hisuian Voltorb. The version is an Electric/Grass type, and "looks very similar to the Poke Balls of the Hisui region". The Poke Balls of the Hisui region are made with wood since the game takes place ages ago before the Sinnoh region became to be.

The Hisuian Voltorb has a wood-like body, and creates electrical discharge like the Voltorb we know. Furthermore, the Hisuian Voltorb has a happy, excited personality that creates the electric discharge when it gets excited.

Pokémon Legends: Arceus is available for pre-order now and available on Jan. 18, 2022
