Are There Pokemon Legends Arceus Final Boss Story Spoilers Yet?

Who's the final boss?

January 21, 2022

As you already know, the newest entry in the Pokemon franchise, Pokemon Legends Arceus on Switch, had retail copies leaking early, and there are spoilers all around, with some claiming to spoil the final boss.

Pokemon is one of the most popular franchises of all time. So while most fans are avoiding spoilers at all costs, part of the player base is actively searching for them. Most notably the identity of the final boss.

Please keep in mind this story contains possible spoilers.

Do we know who is the final boss of Pokemon Legends Arceus?

Right now, it looks like those who finished the game either didn’t share anything, or Nintendo took down their screenshots and videos. Nintendo is currently cracking down on leaks, and popular leaking accounts such as @eclipse_tt were banned.

Some of the people who got the game early such as the PoryLeeks account confirmed they finished the game and saw who or what the final boss is. And how it has three phases and might be “actually hard”.

Several fans who saw streams of the ending are also claiming the final boss is a fusion between Arceus and either Palkia or Dialga.

The final boss was confirmed to be either Dialga or Palkia depending on which clan the player picks. If you pick the Pearl clan, you end up capturing Palkia and need to fight Lord Dialga. And vice versa.

Regarding story elements, there are many fake leaks and fake spoilers as well. Don’t believe everything you see. We’ll only know for sure what happens in the story once Pokemon Legends Arceus actually releases on January 28 on Switch.

Pokemon Legends Arceus is by far the biggest risk the franchise took with its games. Hopefully, it will pay off both in quality and in sales, finally moving the franchise in a fresher direction. I’m personally particularly excited for the game simply because it doesn’t feel like past Pokemon games. What do you think of the game so far? Tell us in the comments!
