Pokémon Legends: Arceus will take us to an ancient Sinnoh, known in the past as Hisui, to research and create the first Pokédex in the Pokémon world. This action RPG from Game Freak, which will keep turn-based fighting with changes, is the most different and risky bet of the saga to date, but it falls within the canon and incorporates – at least – four creatures that we had not identified: two forms regional and two evolutions of Pokémon already known. Hisui Growlithe is the one that has attracted the most attention.

Pokémon Legends Arceus will have at least four new creatures
Beginning with Wyrdeer (evolution of Stantler in Hisui) to travel the places of the region as a terrestrial mount, more Togglegion (Basculin evolution in Hisui) to do the same as a water mount, the new trailer for Pokémon Legends: Arceus surprised us with two new regional forms, which add to the views in Alola and Galar: Braviary de Hisui and Growlithe de Hisui.
Kanto’s Growlithe, the faithful dog of the first generation
Growlithe It is one of the most beloved Pokémon of the first generation. Species number # 58 of the National Pokédex left us a dog “of a brave and honorable nature” that “faces bigger and stronger enemies without fear”. A classic for the Pokémon Police. Natural type Fire, the official Pokédex defines it as “Extremely faithful, he will bark furiously at anyone who poses a threat to his Trainer in order to defend him.” We can add little about Arcanine, even more appreciated in the Pokémon universe, a species capable of running 10,000 kilometers a day.
Hisui’s Growlithe, Sinnoh’s Explorer Pokémon
In the absence of knowing if we will have Growlithe de Hisui and Braviary de Hisui In the remakes of Pokémon Pearl and Diamond, on the official website they confirm that this regional variant of Growlithe will be of the Fire and Rock type. The Explorer Pokémon has a longer and voluminous coat than the already known original. As they explain, this fur is able to retain heat and has a sharp horn made of stone, but it breaks easily.
The Growlithe of Hisui are always alert in their desire to protect the territories; They usually travel two by two and are not – yet – used to the presence of people. “It is not easy to gain the trust of a Growlithe,” they argue.
Differences between Hisui Growlithe and Growlithe
Growlithe de Hisui is of type Fire and Roca (weak to Water x4, Earth x4, Fighting and Rock), unlike the Growlithe original only Fire (weak to Water, Earth and Rock). In addition, this furry puppy weighs 22.7 kg with 0.8 meters in height. Kanto’s puppy is 0.7 meters tall and is lighter, weighing 19.0 kg.
Hopefully we won’t see standard Growlithe in Pokémon Legends: Arceus. It will be the task of Kira O Wound, the protagonists, know all the mysteries of the first Pokédex and capture all the species of the region.
The investigation of Pokémon Legends: Arceus will begin on January 28, 2022 on Nintendo Switch.
