Pokémon Diamond and Shining Pearl are already available in stores and as usual, many players are looking for the secrets that the game hides. One aspect that was not present in the original Pokémon Diamond and Pearl installments is a book that could hint at a new Hisui form for the Pokémon Qwilfish in Pokémon Legends: Arceus.
These are the details that have been shared:
- Canal City is a location in the Sinnoh region in Pokémon Diamond and Pearl. In it is the Canal City Library, whose books contain the Pokémon myths of the Sinnoh region, one of which states that humans and Pokémon used to marry each other. This detail on the relationships between species has been removed from the international versions.
- As we discussed on the web, players have the opportunity to visit an updated version of the Channel Library in Pokémon Diamond and Shimmering Pearl. It was quickly discovered that there is a new book in the library, and that deals with aspects of the series that some will be familiar with. The book refers to something that matches the leaks about the next title in the series: Pokémon Legends: Arceus.
- The book tells of a human who wishes to travel across the sea, in order to meet a Pokémon that he refers to as Prince. He is assisted by a Mantyke, a Buizel and a Qwilfish “with huge quills”. This story is a reference to the argument of Pokémon Ranger and the Temple of the Sea, which is the ninth Pokémon movie.
- The reference to the Qwilfish is what is getting fans excited as it matches the rumors of a Qwilfish from Hisui in Pokémon Legends: Arceus, which is also said to have a unique evolution. Some consider this to imply that Qwilfish will feature a Hisui form.
This is obviously unconfirmed and it is unclear how Pokémon Shiny Diamond and Shimmering Pearl will connect with Pokémon Legends: Arceus. The two games are set in the same region, but take place many years apart. We will have no choice but to wait to see what surprises us with.
Finally, we remind you that Pokémon Legends: Arceus will take place in the region of Hisui, the new teacher will be LavenderAmong the new mechanics, the player character takes damage from Pokémon attacks and Pokémon battles can be carried out with different styles and an order of action: strong style and agile style.
