Legend's Wake is a 3D action role-playing game developed by VictoryStar. It is the first game of the Legend's Wake series. It takes place in a world inhabited only by Pokémon. It is the first game in the franchise to have three-dimensional, combat-style battles.


As the player progresses through the story, their party (or team) gets bigger. Once the party gets a new member, he or she becomes playable. Before entering the level, players can only send out three characters—with one being the player character and the other two being AI-controlled. Each character can jump, move around, attack, and use moves. While exploring the level, enemy encounters will occur, and they happen in real-time. The player character and his/her allies then have to fight the group, then are allowed to move on. During an enemy battle, characters are restricted by a barrier that surrounds the area. The barrier disappears once the encounter is over.

While choosing the allies, the player must give them Roles, or a special title that determines what they do. There are three types of Roles: Soldier, Specialist, and Healer. Soldiers mainly use standard attacks and combos. Specialists mainly use moves and will often use PP-restoring items. Healers will use items when his or her party members get low on HP, get a status condition, or get low on PP. Players that like to use items own their own should give their allies the Soldier Role.

Characters fight by using standard attacks and moves. Moves are stronger than standard attacks, but run on Power Points (or PP). Once a move's PP is depleted, it cannot be used anymore until a PP-restoring item is used. Just like in the regular Pokémon games, characters can level up and learn new moves. In fact, each character learns moves at the same level they would in the main series games. Each character can only hold four moves. However, moves can be switched in and out at will when outside a level. Moves can be upgraded in power, and can even obtain special attributes. Characters can also learn TMs, but they are not stored in their move memory if they're replaced by a new move. Players are able to save movesets and give them names.

In levels, characters are able to get items. They appear as Poké Balls lying on the ground, and when they're picked up, they open, revealing the item. Items are classified as being either medicine, battle items, or held items. Some items (specifically medicine and battle items) can be bought in shops, while others (held items) can be found in levels.

When enemies are defeated, they drop HP orbs and money. Defeating an enemy also grants points that add to the player's score on the level. Points can be used as currency to upgrade party members' moves.

After defeating a boss and completing the level, a number of side missions are unlocked for that level. They usually consist of small tasks that the party must complete, such as finding a lost item or defeating a certain enemy.

The characters earn EVs, just like in the main series Pokémon games. However, each stat can get 252 EVs, with a total of 1,260 EVs that can go into each character. There are no IVs in the game. Characters can still have natures, which function just the same as natures in the main series games. With the absence of a Speed stat, many natures have been taken out.



Name Description How to Unlock
Type Fighting
Riolu is the newest member of the heroic group known as the Guardians. He must learn to use his skills on this highly personal journey. He's the main protagonist of the game. Playable from the start
Piplup Dream
Type Water
Klip is a Piplup Skyler and the Guardians meet during their quest. He's carefree and doesn't take things too seriously. This is a coping mechanism he developed after his home was destroyed by darkness.
Type Grass
A calm, rational Pokémon. She has an elegant style in both her moves and her standard attacks. She is one of the speedier members of the Guardians. She is the love interest of Skyler.
Type Psychic Type Fighting
Draven has been a part of the Guardians longer than the rest of the team. He actually sees potential in Riolu and guides him to be a better warrior. He attacks with agility and finesse.
Type Grass
Jett is the second newest member of the Guardians and was recruited a short time before Riolu was. He executes fast-paced attacks that utilize the leaves on his arms.
Type Electric
Ryker masterfully uses Electric-type moves, both physical and special. His standard attacks are great, too. He tends to enjoy bullying Riolu around.
Excadrill Dream
Type Ground Type Steel
This Excadrill fights with precision and ferocity. If he—or any other character—knows Dig, he must require good aim. He loves to eat and has the highest HP out of all the characters.
Type Fire Type Fighting
Axel is one of the powerhouses of the team. He angers quickly and can seem kind of mindless. He has good standard attacks, but his moves will take practice to master.
Type Normal Type Flying
Beretta is the eye-in-the-sky of the Guardians. She's strong enough to even carry a big Pokémon. During gameplay, though, she has limits to how high she can fly.
Type Dragon
Drax is a Pokémon of few words. He prefers to speak with actions instead of his voice. He is strong and has simple yet powerful standard attacks, and his small wings give him a floaty jump.
Type Normal
This Pokémon becomes the medic of the Guardians. She is weak offensively, but she has by far the most HP out of the playable characters. Almost all of her moves have to do with healing.
Blastoise Dream
Type Water
Blaster can learn many types of projectile-style moves. His real name is unknown. He has strong Defense and Sp. Def. He is slow and has poor dodging capabilities.
Type Dark Type Ice
Many think that Ronan is insane. He says strange things, has a wacky sense of humor, manipulates others, and is ruthless against enemies.
Type Bug Type Flying
Asher shares a fierce rivalry with Draven. He will willingly work with him, however. His moves and standard attacks deal good damage.
Type Normal
Naomi provides a good amount of comic relief for the game. Her love of tricks is well-used when playing as her or using her as an ally.

Supporting Cast

A sorceress who once served King Entei. She became power-hungry and boosted her magic abilities. She tried swallowing Pokéworld in darkness, but the king and the first generation of Guardians stopped her. She has risen again...
