It's over three months before Pokémon Legends: Arceus is due to release, but some stunning pre-order bonuses are cropping up for the open-world game. Japanese players are being treated to a stunning full-art TCG card, but western players now have a rival bonus that could be even better.
If you pre-order Pokémon Legends: Arceus on Amazon, you can get your hands on a beautifully illustrated steelbook case for the game, and a replica PokéBall. However, it's not any ordinary PokéBall.
If you've been following the Pokémon Legends: Arceus trailers and updates, you'll know that it's set in the Hisui region - an ancient version of the Sinnoh region from Diamond and Pearl. The feudal time period means that PokéBalls aren't quite the same, they look hand-carved and steam powered.
Pokémon Legends: Arceus Just Got An Awesome Pre-Order Bonus
Whether you're more excited for the new Hisuian forms (and that adorable Growlithe), or catching every Pokémon in Legends: Arceus, you'll need PokéBalls to do it. So why not get an IRL version to spruce up your collection while you're at it?
While the pre-order page says that the final design of the PokéBall may change, we can expect it to look pretty similar when it releases at the end of January. Perhaps the display plinth will change or the ball won't open, but you get the picture - the main design will be similar.
If you're in the UK, don't forget you can pre-order Pokémon Legends: Arceus on Amazon to receive this awesome piece of Pokémon memorabilia. As a bonus, Amazon usually delivers its pre-orders on release day (and occasionally before - but don't rely on this), so you'll be able to play the game right away.
