The Pokémon Company revealed new updates on the various Pokémon games including a new trailer for Pokémon Scarlet and Violet featuring rideable legendary pokémon.
This morning, the Pokémon Company put out a new Pokémon showcase providing updates on the various Pokémon apps and games. The 19-minute video revealed all the fun things being added to games like Pokémon Go and Pokémon Unite as well as a new trailer for the next entries in the Pokémon series, Scarlet and Violet.
Before getting to the juicy bits concerning Scarlet and Violet, The Pokémon Company shared updates for its mobile and MOBA titles. Pokémon Unite will be getting a new game mode — Pika Party — in which all ‘mon on the field are Pikachus, and Mewtwo will be making an appearance in Pokemon Café. There were also updates on Pokémon Go Fest with the finale taking place August 27th featuring the Ultra Beasts.
A new trailer for Scarlet and Violet closed out the Pokémon event, filling in a bit more information on what to expect in the two new titles.
In Scarlet and Violet, trainers will get to explore the open world of the Paldea region, which seems to have Spanish or Portuguese influences. Players will enroll in a kind of Pokémon University, the Naranja or Uva Academy. There, students will embark on a treasure hunt, sending them out into the world to find and fight all kinds of new pokémon, including a little bagel dog called Fidough who is now my favorite pokémon ever.
LOOK AT HIM!!
Like in previous Pokémon games, players will embark on a quest to become a Pokémon champion, taking on various gym leaders. However, because of the new open-world aspect of Scarlet and Violet, players are free to take on gyms in any order they chose.
