Pokémon Scarlet and Violet: Surprise! There will be even more Pokémon games released in the future. The Pokémon Company teased two new titles at a live-streamed event on Sunday morning: Pokémon Scarlet and Violet.
The games are set to release in late 2022 on the Nintendo Switch, and the quick teaser looked a lot like Pokémon Sword and Shield, which was released in 2019. The games are characterized as a “open-world adventure” that “takes a new evolutionary step in the Pokémon main series,” according to developer Game Feak. In the photograph below, you can see a few of the newcomers.
Pokémon Scarlet and Violet are coming
Trainers can traverse an open world with no borders where numerous communities mix perfectly into the landscape. Pokémon may be found in all parts of the globe, including the heavens, the sea, and the streets.
Trainers will enter the worlds of Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet as one of the central characters, and they will wear different clothing depending on which game they are playing. Before embarking on their journey, trainers will choose either Sprigatito, the grass cat pokémon, Fuecoco, the fire croc pokémon, or Quaxly, the duckling pokémon as their first partner pokémon.
The other significant announcement is that Pokémon Legends: Arceus, which was released earlier this year, would receive a “daybreak” software update. It’ll be accessible for free later today, and it comes with a new investigation quest. The Pokémon Company also revealed that it would produce an animated series set in the game’s Hisui region, premiere later this year.
The announcement also included a significant upgrade to Pokémon Go, with monsters from the Alola area — which first debuted in Pokémon Sun and Moon — arriving at the game on March 1st. In addition, Pokémon Unite, a competitive combat game, will get several significant new features, including new, more furious encounters called “fury battles,” which will debut today. Limited-edition Pokémon Day stuff will be given to players who log in now.
