With only a week until release, Pokemon Legends: Arceus has leaked and bad news, spoilers are floating across the web regarding the story, new Pokémon forms, and more. We won’t be posting any Pokémon Legends: Arceus leaks here but they’re easy enough to find, so we'd advise caution when browsing social media.
From leaked images to Pokémon Legends: Arceus videos, journalist Laura Kate Dale (spotted by NintendoLife) confirmed a full datamine dump for every Pokémon model has appeared online. That includes new forms of familiar Pokémon, along with their shiny forms, which are likely being shared elsewhere.
Beware Spoilers, Pokémon Legends: Arceus Has Leaked
Unfortunately, this isn’t the first time Pokémon games have leaked ahead of their official release. Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl also saw assets shared online before coming out last November. Pokémon Sword and Shield also fell victim to leaks ahead of their release, showing how unlucky Game Freak has been during the Nintendo Switch generation.
Anyone interested in Pokémon Legends: Arceus can pick it up officially for Nintendo Switch on January 28. If players have a save file from either Pokémon Brilliant Diamond or Shining Pearl, they can get a few extras in Pokemon Legends: Arceus. We'll keep you informed with further details as they come in.
