Hisuian Voltorb Revealed for Pokémon Legends Arceus

After a tease last night where Sword and Shield’s Poké Ball loving mascot, Ball Guy, took over the Pokémon Twitter account to demonstrate the Pokémon Legends Arceus microsite drowning in exploding Poké Balls, we now have a new Hisuian form Pokémon revealed to appear in the game, and unsurprisingly… it’s an exploding Poké Ball!

Hisuian Voltorb, much like the classic Kantonian Voltorb, takes its appearance after a standard Poké Ball, but in this case, the Poké Ball is the old, seemingly steam-powered and Apricorn-sourced variety, so naturally Voltorb also follows suit.

Presumably because of its Apricorn-related origins, this Voltorb is also a part grass type. It remains to be seen whether or not there’ll be a Hisuian form Electrode but it seems pretty likely!

There’s a full trailer for the new Pokémon below and it’s not the only video it’ll be starring in, either, as a short animation based on it will also be released tomorrow.
