Pokemon Legends Arceus: Fans Find Unused Room Set in a Different Time Period. Pokémon Legends: Arceus hackers have found a secret modern-day room hidden in the game that stands out amid its ancient setting.
The room is fully furnished with a desk, TV, and even a Pokémon-themed Nintendo Switch, very similar to the player’s starting room in the mainline titles but still unique to Pokémon Legends: Arceus.
It can’t be found in the final version of the game but was discovered by hacker @DeepGameRes (and shared by Faz Faz on YouTube) in an exploited PC emulation.

None of the items can be interacted with and the player will actually clip right through the different pieces of furniture, likely because the room was never meant to be found.
Fans are already speculating what it could be, with some asking if it’s a hint at upcoming DLC and others wondering if it was a since-deleted introduction to the game where the player falls back in time.
There’s no way to know if DLC is on its way as Nintendo and the Pokémon company have made no such announcements. Pokémon Legends: Arceus is also a brand new style of Pokémon game, and so there’s no precedent as to how DLC could work. Of the Switch collection so far, Sword and Shield did receive post-release content but Let’s Go did not, along with Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl (though these were only released in November 2021).
IGN said Pokémon Legends: Arceus was “good”, and “an ambitious revamp that successfully revolutionizes the defining Pokemon experiences of catching and battling, but is unfortunately set in a drab, empty, and at times tedious world.”
