Putting Pokemon Legends: Arceus’ Nobles and Scarlet and Violet’s Titans side by side

Scarlet and Violet players have observed a number of similarities between its titans and the noble Pokemon from Pokemon Legends: Arceus.

The recently released and Violet differ from previous main series games in that players can choose the order in which they explore the game’s three storylines. The goal of “Path of Legends” is to get the herbs that are being guarded by five nearly mythical, very powerful Pokemon called “Titans.” The Titans, which are fought in the wild and are not controlled by a trainer, reminded many fans of the Noble Pokemon battles in Pokemon Legends: Arceus, which was released earlier in 2022. While the Pokemon Scarlet and Violet Titans share many similarities with the Nobles, they also have a number of significant differences.

Depending on which version of Pokemon Scarlet and Violet is played, the player character attends either Naranja or Uva Academy. As part of the “Treasure Hunt” independent study at the Academy, players can hunt Titans, destroy Team Star’s bases, challenge Gym Leaders for badges, or all of the above. The “Path of Legends” plot of Titan entails teaming up with fellow student Arven to investigate rumors of super-powerful Pokemon guarding “Herba Mystica.” The size and strength of the Titans and their lack of a proper Trainer are reminiscent of the Nobles, but in Legends Arceus, they are fought in much more standard battles than their Noble counterparts.

Titans Are Wild, Powerful, and Impossible to Capture

Klawf, Bombirdier, Orthworm, a multi-stage battle against both Tatsugiri and Dodonzo, and either Great Tusk in Scarlet or Iron Treads in Violet can be found in the Paldea region. All Titans are significantly larger and more powerful than other members of their species, possibly as a result of the Herba Mystica they guard and consume. Their size and strength are undeniably reminiscent of the Noble Pokemon, who in Pokemon Legends: Arceus were kept large and powerful by the clansmen of Diamond and Pearl. They are also similar in number; Arceus had ten Noble Pokemon, but only five were fought; the other five served as the player’s Ride Pokemon, willingly offering their assistance without the need for a battle.

The most striking similarity between Noble Pokemon and Titans is that, unlike nearly all other Pokemon in the series, they cannot be captured by the player. Noble Pokemon cannot be captured due to their sanctity and significance to the Diamond and Pearl clans. While there is no rule prohibiting the capture of Titan Pokemon, each Titan flees and vanishes after being defeated, preventing the player from adding them to their team. Noble Pokemon must be evolved by the player, as they are all evolved forms of Hisuian Pokemon.

Titans, on the other hand, are generally single-stage evolutions, so smaller forms of these Pokémon can be captured in the wild. Typically, they are found close to where the Titans were fought. Great Tusk and Iron Treads, paradox versions of Phanpy’s evolved form Donphan, are exclusive to the late-game Great Crater of Paldea region.

Noble Pokemon Combat Is Much More Complicated

Combating a Noble Pokemon was vastly different from almost every other type of Pokemon battle in previous games. Central to the plot of Pokemon Legends: Arceus was the Nobles’ enraged reaction to a strange energy emanating from Mount Coronet. Thus, the player must first calm them by tossing Balms, items made from the Pokemon’s favorite foods and crafted by the respective Nobles’ Wardens. Once the Noble Pokemon’s frenzied state has ended, the player may send out a Pokemon to battle it. Depending on the power of the Noble Pokemon, the battle may involve multiple rounds of throwing Balms and attacking while the opponent’s Pokemon is stunned, calmed, or distracted.

It is no longer necessary to utilize Balms or any other special tactics in order to defeat a Pokemon of the Titan type. Titans also do not utilize Scarlet and Violet’s Terastallization technique, possibly because they lack a Trainer with a Tera Orb. Titan battles differ from standard wild Pokemon battles only in that Titans will flee when their health is low, resulting in a two-stage battle. During the second stage, Arven will assist the player by sending one of his Pokémon into battle. Due to the fact that the two stages are not timed and are not required to occur simultaneously, players may visit the Pokemon Center between battles to heal or purchase items. The player’s Tera Orb is also recharged between stages, allowing them to Terastallize their Pokemon a second time when facing the Titan.

Traversal is associated with both Noble Pokemon and Titans.

There is a connection between Pokemon Legends Arceus’ Noble Pokemon and Pokemon Scarlet and Violet’s Titans and the means by which players can traverse the expansive worlds of the games. Pokemon Legends Arceus is divided into a number of large regions, whereas Scarlet and Violet’s Paldea is the series’ first true open world. Each region of Hisui is associated with two Noble Pokemon, one that can be fought and one that can be ridden; Wyrdeer, Ursaluna, and Hisuian Braviary are examples of Noble Pokemon that can be ridden. When the player declares his or her intent to defeat the region’s Noble, the Pokémon that can be ridden will typically offer its assistance. In Scarlet and Violet, consuming the Herba Mystica grants Koraidon or Miraidon new mobility abilities, such as swimming, gliding, and climbing vertical surfaces.

Obviously, comparisons between Legends Arceus and Scarlet and Violet’s traversal systems have also been made, with Scarlet and Violet’s traversal systems generally receiving praise for being more fluid and streamlined than Arceus’s. Players like that Koraidon and Miraidon can be used for all kinds of movement, so they don’t have to switch mounts all the time. Even though both types of battles have their pros and cons, some people have said that Scarlet and Violet’s battles with the Titans are better than Arceus’ battles with Noble Pokemon in Pokemon Legends.
