While several leaks have been deleted, presumably by Nintendo getting wind of the latest leak, there are still remnants of leaked information scattered online.
So, thanks to the quick actions of a few astute trainers who were able to take screenshots of the leaked information, we have a reasonably solid list of all the Pokémon we can expect to see in Pokémon Legends: Arceus.
Nintendo cracks down on Pokemon Arceus leaks
Pokémon Legends: Arceus is less than a week away from release. According to a slew of leaked screenshots, the highly anticipated next installment in the Pokémon series will possibly feature 242 pocket monsters for trainers to catch.

This latest leak corroborates reports of game copies being sold prior to the game's release, which resulted in the first gameplay footage and images appearing online. While Nintendo is trying to shut down all possible leaks through copyright claims, that hasn't stopped individuals from sharing leaked information.
For example, popular Pokémon leaker CentroLeaks has been constantly updating its Twitter feeds with newly leaked information. However, they have since removed footage and gameplay footage.
These leaked images include all Pokemon available in the game, including Starters and their evolution forms, rarity, and more.

Signature Pokémon include Pikachu and Gengar, which will be added alongside new pocket monsters and variations from the game's location, the Hisui region, like the Hisuian Voltorb. Additionally, there will be a few unnamed evolutions for Pokémon like Sneasel, Qwilfish, and Ursaring.
As the official prequel to the Pokémon Shining Diamond and Pokémon Shining Pearl games, Pokémon Legends: Arceus is Nintendo's first foray into the action RPG genre in the popular Pokémon game series.
In this game, Nintendo has produced an "all-new Pokémon experience" allowing Trainers to explore vast highlands, bustling forests, and ancient ruins equipped with their PokéDex.
Pokémon Legends: Arceus may be days away from launch, so we expected spoilers to eventually be released to the general public. However, Nintendo was relatively successful in suppressing spoilers ahead of release.
Indeed, it remains to be seen if they will follow through as excitement continues to build ahead of the official release of Pokémon Legends: Arceus.▶ »
