5 features from Pokemon Legends

With the latest entry in the Pokémon franchise, Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, on the horizon, players have dug into the back catalog.  One such title that has recently piqued the curiosity of the player is Pokemon Legends: Arceus.

Legends took the turn-based and wild encounters gameplay of previous entries and infused new life into a franchise many felt was getting stale.  With the game taking a more real-time action approach, many dedicated fans want many of these newly introduced features to make their way into the main series.

With fans outraged to see these mod changes in the main series, we can only hope that the following Pokémon make their way into Scarlett and Violet.

Release Pokemon for Stat Items

While the mechanic originated in Pokémon Go and was brought to Pokémon: Let's Go, the idea of ​​transferring Pokémon to stat items was also a part of Legends.  Players who have caught a lot of Pokémon or want to organize their storage can choose to release Access Pokémon in a steady state.

In doing so, the trainer would be rewarded with a series of items that were used to increase the Pokémon's stats.  Given how much stats matter in the main series for the metagame, an easy way to grind for such effort values ​​would make navigating the competitive scene a lot easier for new players.

Judging by the mechanical features in Legends, the free-control camera should return to Pokémon Scarlet and Violet.  While players could freely use the camera in the wild area of ​​Pokémon Sword and Shield, it wasn't until Pokémon Legends: Arceus that they could control the camera anywhere.

Having free control of the game's camera can work wonders for navigation.  It can also help players understand their surroundings by helping them discover Pokémon or special destinations.

One of the many criticisms of older titles is that the battles take too long.  At first, it may sound ludicrous, but considering all the unnecessary animations in the battles paired with the long victory screen, these second-hand animations add up to long play sessions.

Quicker battles


Pokémon Legends: Arceus cuts these lengthy animations short with battles, where they are unleashed in the overworld.  Pokémon also lack a screen for gaining experience points as it is handed over to a sidebar after the battle is over.
