Each good JRPG normally ends with the participant killing God. However by no means has a sport made me wish to defeat an omnipotent deity greater than Pokemon Legends: Arceus has.
That is as a result of the titular character of Pokemon Legends: Arceus, aka the Pokemon God themself, is way from a benevolent, form being that cares about their creation. As an alternative, Arceus is a large evil jerkward that does not care in regards to the world a bit, and provokes essentially the most tragic story a Pokemon sport has ever informed.
Warning: This text and the video embedded include main spoilers for the complete storyline of Pokemon: Legends Arceus, together with the post-game. Watch provided that you do not care about spoilers or have completed the complete predominant story quest.
On this video breakdown of the sport’s ending, I’m going over the methods through which Arceus proves themself all through Pokemon Legends to be not merely chaotic impartial, however totally evil. Its crimes embody kidnapping kids, inflicting everlasting amnesia in prepare conductors, trapping benevolent demigods in horrible the wrong way up dimensions, ignoring the plight of the individuals they’re meant to guard, foisting all its tasks onto others who’re much less geared up to deal with them, and ditching their godly tasks to play collect-a-thon video games and go off on larks throughout the nation. You realize, for funsies.
And in contrast to the most important tragedies of different Pokemon video games, Pokemon Legends: Arceus would not get a contented ending for these Arceus made to undergo essentially the most. Until, after all, DLC is coming, through which case now we have to pay extra cash for a satisfying ending to those divinely-inflicted tragedies.
Ultimately, Pokemon Legends: Arceus would not allow us to kill God, however the Pokemon God positive proves they might deserve it if it did.
For the total breakdown, watch the video above, and be sure you take a look at our overview of Pokemon Legends: Arceus and our detailed wiki guides to the entire sport, together with defeat Arceus ultimately.
