Pokémon Legends: Arceus is due to release in just a few days; however, some gamers have already got their hands on the game due to leaks. Several players have been discussing the upcoming game online, specifically, the scaling of the Pokémon. Especially the size of Machoke in Pokémon Legends: Arceus. Beware, potential spoilers ahead.

Pokémon Sword and Shield similarly terrified players with a large Machoke chasing down players in the wild. Pokémon Legends: Arceus seems to take that to another level, as seen from the game’s leaks. The new RPG makes the muscley fighting Pokémon even bigger.
Gamers on Reddit have also shared images of their Pokémon in Arceus, with some even claiming to have already beaten the game. However, many players can’t get over their sizes. Below, you can see a few different variations.
It seems that Pokémon Legends Arceus leaks allow players to experience the life-size scale of Pokémon like never before. Machoke isn’t even the largest Pokémon in the game, with Onix reportedly being much bigger. However, many gamers feel Machoke looks the most menacing with this human-like form and stature. The upcoming Pokémon game is the first time these creatures are actually able to hurt and knockout trainers, making their size seem even more terrifying. Of course, most players will probably jump at the chance to personally go head to head with a Pokémon.
For those who haven’t obtained the game early, The Pokémon Company released a 13-minute video featuring the gameplay in Pokémon Legends: Arceus. The video introduces aspects of the game, such as Alpha and Noble Pokémon. These magical creatures are larger than usual and have red or golden eyes. More leaked images show that not all Pokémon are alike and can vary in size among their own species.
Pokémon Legends: Arceus officially launches on January 28 for the Nintendo Switch. Pre-orders are currently open.
