It has been just two months since the last entry in the Pokemon series was released, Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl, and it is now time for the next title to be released, Pokemon Legends: Arceus.
Pokemon Legends: Arceus will shake the typical format up by introducing many new mechanics and taking inspiration from games such as Breath of the Wild and Monster Hunter Rise.
As with all Pokemon games, players will need to create their character at the start of the game before embarking on their Pokemon adventure to become the very best like no one ever was.
Here is everything you need to know about character creation in Pokemon Legends Arceus.
Character creation guide
As soon as you turn Pokemon Legends Arceus on you will be immediately thrust into the game with the opening sequence.
This is when you will be able to create your character in the game. Players are able to choose from eight different character models, with four being male and four being female.
Each of the models has the same characteristics for both males and females, such as hair color and skin tone. There are a couple of different eye colors that are part of the models, but this can be changed at any time by using contact lenses.
Once you have chosen the character model you want to use you will be prompted to enter your character name, which can be anything you want as long as it uses 12 or fewer characters.

Once you’ve entered it then just confirm your selection and the game will begin. Unfortunately, the character model can’t be changed at a later time, but aspects of your character such as eye color and clothing can be altered and changed throughout the course of the game.
