Pokémon Legends: Arceus has released a new trailer that shows off a new class of 'Noble Pokémon' that trainers will come across on their travels.
As shown not long after the two-minute mark in the trailer below, fans get a glimpse at the introduction of a powerful-looking Pokémon called "Kleavor". Nicknamed the 'Lord of the Woods', Kleavor is a Bug/Rock-type Pokémon with axe-like hands that can be seen tearing through the wild fully immersed in a fiery-orange field before engaging in battle.
Whether or not the monster's bright glow offers a temporary buff in battle is unclear from the trailer itself, however, once defeated the Noble Pokémon seems to submit to the trainer, revealing its true colours to be that of a rocky brown and white colour.
In addition to showcasing the franchise's new class of Pokémon, the trailer also revealed a wealth of other interesting features set to debut in Pokémon Legends: Arceus. Perhaps one of the most exciting new features in the game is having the ability to mount and ride different Pokémon as you travel across the land. During the trailer, fans got a further glimpse at how this will come together on screen as the player character in the clip could be seen navigating the world on the backs of new Pokémon such as Wyrdeer and Basculegion.
Other features in the trailer included the introduction of Mai, Iscan, Lian and Arezu, a quartet of new wardens in the game, whose role is to protect special Pokémon found across the Hisui region and a range of greater customization options to players in the game. During a trip to Jubilife Village, players will be able to customize their outfits, opt for a change in hairstyle, take photos with their Pokémon and more.
