POKÉMON SCARLET and POKÉMON VIOLET Second Trailer is Here!
The Pokémon Company released the second trailer for Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet! The new trailer doesn’t give us a look at the final evolutions for the three starters, but it is packed with other useful information. We get to meet two very attractive professors as it appears that each version will have a distinct one.
The trailer also revealed that you and three of your friends can play together and explore the world together which is absolutely incredible! The only thing better would be if it had a couch co-op. We then get to see that in the wild we’re sticking with what appears to be the Legends Arceus approach to wild Pokémon where you actually see the Pokémon you’re going to encounter and then immediately go into battle right then and there.
We get to see some new and old Pokémon in the region throughout the trailer, with my personal favorite being Lechonk. We close out with a look at the legendary Pokémon, Koraidon, and Miraidon, for the versions and they look pretty cool. I don’t know that I have a preference.
You can play Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet on November 18 on Nintendo Switch with pre-orders now open.
Check out the details on three of the new Pokémon and NPCs we met below.
Professor Sada and Professor Turo
For the first time, one of two different professors will appear in the game depending on which version players choose. In Pokémon Scarlet, players will meet Professor Sada, and in Pokémon Violet, players will meet Professor Turo. Each professor is carrying out research into lore passed down in the region.
Nemona has a sunny, energetic disposition and is passionate about Pokémon battles. She’s an experienced Pokémon Trainer and serves as a friend and reliable guide for players on their adventures.
On their journey, players will encounter many never-before-seen Pokémon, and among them are the following three, which Nemona uses on her team.
In addition to the electric sacs in its cheeks, Pawmi has electricity-discharging organs on its forepaws. It generates electricity by rubbing its cheeks, then it shocks its opponents by touching them with the pads on its forepaws.
The fur that covers its body is good insulation against the cold and serves the purpose of storing electricity. When it feels uneasy, this cautious Pokémon will begin rubbing its cheeks, preparing itself to discharge an electric shock.

Lechonk uses its sense of smell to find and eat only the most fragrant wild grasses and the richest Berries. As a result of its dining habits, it has come to radiate an aroma resembling herbs that Bug-type Pokémon dislike. If attacked by an opponent and startled, it will charge forward in a panic.
It may appear fat at first glance, but in reality, the Pokémon’s body is mostly muscle built by constantly walking around in search of food.
- Category: Hog Pokémon
- Type: Normal
- Height: 1’8″
- Weight: 22.5 lbs.
- Ability: Aroma Veil / Gluttony
The oil that comes out of its head has a very strong bitter taste, and it is not suitable for consumption.
When startled or attacked, Smoliv will shoot this oil out, slowing its opponent down. It will then seize that moment to run away.
In the fruit on its head, Smoliv stores oil made from nutrients it gathers through photosynthesis. As a result, it can go for a week without eating or drinking. It prefers dry and sunny climates, and it seems to spend its days sunbathing.
- Category: Olive Pokémon
- Type: Grass/Normal
- Height: 1′
- Weight: 14.3 lbs.
