Pokémon Legends Arceus has leaked online 9 days prior to the January 28th release date.

We have received reports of an XCI around 7.4GB in size appearing in certain places online. Initial testing appears the title does not boot on the Yuzu Nintendo Switch emulator.

Further details to follow.

Pokemon Legends Arceus: *Leaks early*
Absolutely anyone at all in the entirely of creation: *crickets chirp*

I admit I did pre-order the game though, this one looked too interesting not too.

I got already. So called "free shops" already have it.
The Switch has Free Shop style Homebrew?

I've got the game also, I must say it's a very different experience from the traditional Pokemon play style, but I actually really like it! Will be investing more time into this one!

At this point I am starting to think Gamefreak is doing this on purpose to flag hacked Switched and get people banned. Of course that doesn't affect people running the game in an emulator..

It seem like the game is pretty solid and the only complain I ever see is just graphic.

Idk If mines the unpopular opinion or im used to gamefreaks games looking like crap, but I half feel the opposite.
Gameplay isn’t bad, but things just seem rediculously repetative. Completing a pokedex was already tedious af in other games, having to battle/defeat catch & throw mud at a pokemons eye 20 times to get an entry loses its excitement after the first 10 times.
The story is basically
-go complete a mission, return to the same base. The gameplay basically feels more like your passing time as opposed to actually being gripping or particularly enjoyable. Maybe Im not far in enough but the fact the new areas are literally camps, & their seems to be one village in the entire world(as primitive as it is)seems like fairly mediocre efforts were put into being creative.
I feel like the art & visuals arent bad, could be better sure, but not terrible.
If your looking to find botw quality gameplay though, think again.

I highly doubt it,
If you get banned on a hacked switch, the only thing you lose is the ability to connect to Nintendos online servers.
Being banned does absolutely nothing to prevent those using piracy on hacked switches.
Apart from the fact that a large % of the people with exploited switches don’t care for nintendos poor online service, those that do have simple workarounds to prevent bans.

It is called tinfoil and comes empty. It's up to you to fill with servers.

Yeah, I'd say even the graphics can look nice at times being that this is clearly based on the BotW engine and/or some of its assets. The pop-in is killer though, as is the view distance and distant texture detail. And of course FPS still feels like it's in the 20-25 range most of the time despite all that. I look forward to when we can mod this game to the point of changing the in-engine settings.

When it comes to gameplay, it is undoubtedly the best single-player Pokemon experience released in a long, long time. Now granted, that's not too high a bar to clear, but even compared to other AAA games, and more specifically open-world games, I'd still rate it quite favorably. Somewhere in the 8.5-9 range, whereas I'd give Sword and Shield a 6.5 at best. What makes it so much better are a few things: the way the economy works, the speed at which most actions/animations are performed in combat and out, and the battle difficulty. On that latter point: that's correct, battles are more difficult overall despite having a lot fewer trainer battles in the game (my one gripe other than graphics). Wild Pokemon have knocked out one of my own with a single normal effectiveness move when they were only 1-2 levels higher; not to mention how much stronger alphas are on top of that.

I had canceled my pre-order previously, but I'm now seriously considering picking up a copy at launch. If nothing else, to try to help encourage the direction they've taken with this game.

I'm the first one to dislike the recent pokemon games seeing as they've been dumbed down and are clearly not for me/a quick cash grab. This game while the graphics are pretty bad, it seems the the gameplay is pretty enjoyable, It's probably the most fun I've had with pokemon since BW/BW2. If they had released this instead of Scam and Steal..first. It would've been a pretty good first pokemon game for the switch. The detractors have their points, but most likely will never be satiated. Is it a crafting and pokemon huntathon?

Yeah, but that doesn't make it any less enjoyable. I'm pretty sure they've even removed pokemon abilities just to make the game that much casual friendly. I don't really miss it, but they've at least put a serviceable amount of effort into the gameplay. All in all it's pretty alright.

kinda like the battle system and feels so odd to see the pkm attack and actually feel like they are hitting each other.
Unlike how soulless it looks in sword and shield is not pokemon battle revolution tier animations but way better than the last 3 main pkm games.

I think most people haven't met any Furries at all, they just hear that furries are gross and roll with it. I'm not too fond of the art style myself but I don't hate them as people.
I haven't really met any traditional furries. They're probably around but I guess the fursuits only come out on special occasions. I don't dislike them as much as I used to, but I was younger and the anti-furry cringe compilations were a biased point of view. They were still funny, but everything these days has a layer of "cringe" applied to it. Might as well just enjoy what you enjoy as long as you're not hurting animals or other people.

Surprising no one. At least I can use this as a demo before actually buying the game. I was actually looking forward to how well (or poorly) the game would turn out to be, time to check it out.

Watched the first mission, seems to be interesting and I might pick it up since the last pokemon I really liked was the first ranger game and gold. I wish it had gyro aiming though but I doubt they'd put gyro aiming given the special split joycon doesn't have one although maybe it will be like that mech game that had a split joycon but had gyro aiming added in later to the game.
