Following yesterday’s tease, The Pokemon Company has officially revealed a new Hisuian form Pokemon for Pokemon Legends Arceus.
The new form is Hisuian Voltorb, a Electric/Grass type variant of the Generation 1 Ball Pokemon. As expected, its appearance greatly resembles the ancient Poke Balls used in Hisui as opposed to the more modern Poke Balls.
You can check out a trailer below, along with additional details from the Pokemon Legends Arceus website:

A Striking Resemblance to Poké Balls in Hisui
This enigmatic Pokémon has a glossy, spherical body. It looks very similar to the Poké Balls of the Hisui region, what with the wood-grain-like makeup of its body’s surface and the hole on the top of its head.
There seem to be countless seeds packed inside Hisuian Voltorb. Occasionally, it spouts these seeds out of the hole in its head. However, no one knows exactly what it’s like inside the Pokémon’s body, because inside the hole, it’s pitch-dark. It’s impossible to see anything even if one peers into the hole.
Excitement Leads to an Instant Electrical Discharge
This Pokémon is always in high spirits and has a friendly personality. However, it discharges its stored electricity all at once from the hole in its head when it gets excited, so it frequently shocks humans and Pokémon in its vicinity. Even the slightest provocation can set off such a discharge, so in human settlements, Hisuian Voltorb is considered a nuisance. Tales of people temporarily plugging the hole on Hisuian Voltorb’s head and kicking it out of settlements are not entirely uncommon.
Pokemon Legends Arceus launches on January 28th for Switch.
