Kleavor, Character Customization, New Items, and More!
Many updates were showcased in the new Pokémon Legends: Arceus trailer, most notably the reveal of Kleavor, the Axe Pokemon. The Hisuian evolution of Scyther, this Bug/Rock-type Pokemon uses its axe-like arms to deal devastating physical damage, and many parts of its body have been hardened into solid stone. Kleavor is also the first known case of a Frenzied Noble Pokemon.
Noble pokemon are considered particularly powerful and treated with great respect in the Hisui region, some of them willingly assisting the people. However, a recent phenomenon has caused them to start growing into a frenzy where their bodies grow shine brightly. You will need to both defeat them and quell them by hitting them with as many balms as you can, which are special items that contain their favorite foods. New characters known as wardens were also revealed for Pokémon Legends: Arceus. They are tasked with protecting these special Pokémon by making sure their territories remain safe and by providing offerings such as food and water. The known wardens are Iscan, Lian, Mai, and Arezu.
