Pokemon Legends: Arceus Player Discovers New Hidden Feature

Pokemon Legends: Arceus has been out for a few weeks on Nintendo Switch, Nintendo Switch Lite, and Nintendo Switch OLED, but given the length of the game and the replayability of the game, many Switch users are still playing the latest Pokemon adventure. And everyone who is still playing or has played the game since its release can attest to one thing: it's very different compared to previous installments, boasting a large open-world complimented with open-ended gameplay. It's a new direction for the series and one that seems to be paying off, with the game getting strong critical and user reviews, and selling like hotcakes. 

What's not new for the series are secrets. Since the inception of the series, secrets and easter eggs have been an appreciable part of the Pokemon experience. To this end, one player has discovered a new hidden feature, though it's not obvious if it's born out of purposeful design or the accidental coming together of various systems. Whatever the case, fans over on the game's Reddit were surprised to learn of the feature, which involves quickly gaining altitude.
