POKEMON SCARLET And VIOLET Release Date Revealed

By  | 

Pokémon Scarlet and Violet

The Pokémon Company revealed that Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet will come out on the Nintendo Switch this November. The roughly three-minute video revealed the footage of the game that revealed new Pokémon, characters, and features like four-player multiplayer and Pokémon Center stalls along the side of the road.

Three new Pokémon were revealed including the Grass/ Normal-type Smoliv, the Electric-Type Pawmi, and the new viral craze Lechonk, a portly little hog that is apparently far more muscular than it appears. Additionally, this fresh look at the game revealed that each version will feature a different Professor character that introduces the world of Pokémon to the player: Pokémon Scarlet players will work with Professor Sada, while Pokémon Violet players will report to Professor Turo.

One new feature the trailer revealed is the introduction of a four-player coop play that will allow players to join their friends on adventures throughout the region. It’s still a mystery how this will work, but the trailer does show four players in the same space and later shows two characters trading Pokémon with one another.

The first part of the video ends with a reveal that there will be some sort of tournament system in the game, though whether it will look like the traditional Gym setup is unclear. The trailer then moves to a cinematic style to reveal the legendary Pokémon joined with each game: Koraidon and Miraidon. Koraidon is reminiscent of a feathered dinosaur with a huge, spiked wheel in its chest, while Miraidon has a more futuristic appearance that complements the jet turbines on its feet and I don’t know for what reason the music on the trailer above reminds me of Jurassic Park.

Pokémon Scarlet and Violet will come out on November 18th, 2022, exclusively for the Nintendo Switch. Pre-orders are available now via the Nintendo Switch eShop.
