One of the cool things in Pokémon Legends: Arceus is that you can just sort of… run around while your Pokémon do things. You don’t have to babysit them; in fact, you don’t even have to stand behind them in battle. It’s weird how cool this feels.
You can also throw their Poké Balls on the ground to have them stand beside you for a little bit, doing a cute animation or two, and you can “Speak” to them to see how they’re feeling. It’s not as exciting as a Partner Pokémon, but it’s sweet enough.
However. If you throw down all your party Pokémon, something happens: They start having a little meeting. How do we know it’s a meeting? THEY TAKE IT IN TURNS TO TALK.
We watched this happen for ten solid minutes. It’s VERY CUTE.
