PSA: Pokemon Legends Arceus Has Leaked, Beware of Spoilers


Ahead of its January 28 release date, a number of leaked gameplay and story elements from Nintendo’s upcoming Pokémon Legends: Arceus have begun cropping up online. For those of you looking to head into the game spoiler-free, you may want to stray away from social media – at least until the initial storm passes.

While Nintendo has been relatively quick in its attempts to take down images that contain copyrighted material from Pokémon Legends: Arceus, many screenshots from throughout the game are still currently doing the rounds online.

Unlike previous Pokémon leaks, this most recent wave of content appears to have come from boxed retail versions of the game as opposed to digital review copies. Photographs of a number of players holding copies of the game have begun popping up on social media over the last 24 hours alongside a number of screenshots of the game itself.

While we won’t be sharing exact details pertaining to the content that has been leaked itself, Twitter user Stealth40k gave a rundown of what you should look to avoid. According to Stealth, that list of features includes the game’s opening movie, new Pokémon, and, well, pretty much everything else that you wouldn’t want to be ruined.

With a little over a week left before the official launch of Pokémon Legends: Arceus, mute words and a cautious approach to scrolling may help you to navigate any unsightly spoilers. In the meantime, to supplement the rebellious part of your brain that might be tempted to go hunting for Pokémon content, Nintendo recently shared thirteen additional minutes of gameplay from the game that was both intended for release and packed with a number of satisfying scenes.

The clip itself explores a number of new features that are set to be included in Arceus such as how Pokémon will be caught out in the wild, the game’s overhauled combat system, and how Noble Pokémon boss battles will work.
