Another new Pokemon has been revealed for Pokemon Legends: Arceus. The official Pokemon Twitter account has shared a new gameplay trailer showing off a Hisuian version of the classic monster Voltorb.
Unlike the Voltorb longtime players are familiar with, the Hisuian variant is a grass/electric type, bearing a closer resemblance to the primitive wooden Poke Balls used in the Hisui region. According to the official Pokemon Legends website, it stores seeds inside its body and has a friendly disposition, though it often inadvertently discharges electricity when it gets too excited.
