The Pokémon Company share some new updates on the upcoming Pokémon Legends: Arceus!
The Hisui region’s two clans: the Diamond Clan and the Pearl Clan
The Hisui region isn’t just home to the Galaxy Team, which you’ll join. Two other groups also live here: the Diamond Clan and the Pearl Clan!
The people of the Diamond Clan often speak of how important it is to cherish the present and live in the moment together with your allies. On the other hand, members of the Pearl Clan are frequently heard espousing the importance of valuing the vast, spacious land you share with those around you.
Both of these groups worship a deity long spoken of in the Hisui region, which they call almighty Sinnoh. Yet both clans have their own interpretation of this deity they revere, and it seems that their conflicting beliefs have led them to strife in the past. What is the true form of almighty Sinnoh?
Both the Diamond and Pearl Clans Have Wardens
Although the Diamond Clan and Pearl Clan disagree on many of their beliefs, they seem to nevertheless share many similarities. Both clans don clothing designed to resemble certain Pokémon, and both pay respects to special Pokémon they call lords and ladies—or collectively, noble Pokémon.
And both the Diamond Clan and the Pearl Clan have wardens who serve these special Pokémon. For example, the warden Arezu—who serves a certain lady Pokémon—is a member of the Diamond Clan. But Warden Lian—the warden serving Kleavor, the lord presiding over the Obsidian Fieldlands—is a member of the Pearl Clan.
The Young Leaders in Charge of the Diamond and Pearl Clans
Adaman serves as the leader of the Diamond Clan and has Leafeon as his partner Pokémon. This daring young man hates seeing time go to waste and likes to rush forward without worrying too much about particulars. This way of thinking puts him at odds with Irida, who leads the Pearl Clan, so the two are frequently seen fighting.
Irida serves as the leader of the Pearl Clan, and her partner Pokémon is Glaceon. As a leader, she feels it is important to have the courage to face the vast Hisui region without quailing before it. Though she is suspicious of you when you first meet, she will come to trust you thanks to the help you provide in quelling the noble Pokémon.
The Ginkgo Guild merchants ply their wares as they travel the region
A group of merchants known as the Ginkgo Guild also operates in the Hisui region. Not native to Hisui, members of the Ginkgo Guild travel around the various locations of the region, selling the wares they have gathered.
The guild will no doubt be a help to you and your survey work since they sell a variety of handy items for adventuring.
Ginter is the head of the Ginkgo Guild. He might not look all that enthusiastic, but it’s his strong leadership that keeps the guild together. He’ll sell you rare items and special finds that he gets from various places.
Volo, one of the Ginkgo Guild’s merchants, is often to be found wandering the Hisui region. He has a tendency to cross paths with you no matter where you travel. He’s got a boundless sense of curiosity and is always interested in unusual finds and unusual people.
