The exploration possibilities in Pok\u00e9mon Legends: Arceus is a complete first for the series. While the Wild Area in Pok\u00e9mon Sword and Shield offered wide swaths of land to interact with Pok\u00e9mon in, it pales in comparison with the landscapes of Hisui. Questions never before relevant to a Pok\u00e9mon RPG are now vitally important for developing your strategy \u2014 questions such as, "Can you dodge if you're walking through water?" Dodging is one of the many new mechanics in Pok\u00e9mon Legends: Arceus. Press Y, and you'll skillfully fling yourself wherever the left joystick is pointing. But there are a number of shallow bodies of water in Arceus that you can wade through, and you'll notice that once your character gets knee-deep, their movement speed will slow down. What's more, you'll become unable to dodge. Knowing your character is both slower and unable to dodge in even shallow water is critical for staying out of trouble in the ever-dangerous wilds of Hisui. Some Pok\u00e9mon will straight-up attack you, after all, and if you're in the water, your ability to react is severely hindered. If you stay alert, you can avoid blacking out \u2014 which, even in shallow water, would be especially dangerous, no?
