Where to Preorder Pokemon Legends: Arceus

If you’re hyped for the Breath of the Wild-like Pokemon game and want to get your preorder in ASAP, you can do so right now.

You can preorder Pokemon Legends: Arceus in your usual retailers like Walmart, Best Buy, and Gamestop but we’d recommend preordering either via the Nintendo eShop if you want the digital version or Amazon if you want the physical option. This is because Amazon offers the ‘preorder price guarantee’ which ensures that if the price drops before release, you’ll get that lowest number.

Pokemon Legends: Arceus Preorder Bonus

So, what do you get for preordering this open world entry into the Pokemon franchise? Well, it does differ where you preorder from as bonus gifts range from in-game items to physical assets. Let’s break them down.

The in-game costume on offer is called the Hisuian Growlithe Kimono Set and has slightly different variations whether your trainer is a boy or a girl. You can secure this preorder bonus no matter if you do so via a digital manner or if you want that physical copy in your hands.

If you preorder through the Nintendo eShop before May 9, 2022, you will receive a code for 30 Heavy Balls which can be used in-game. These Heavy Balls are essentially upgraded Poke Balls which are better for catching but can’t be thrown as far.

Last, but not least, is the physical preorder bonus – the Arceus Sitting Cuties Plush. If you want a new plush to add to your collection, you’ll have to preorder Pokemon Legends: Arceus via the Pokemon Center. The caveat is that this bonus available ‘while supplies last’ so best to secure your copy now.
