Pokémon Scarlet and Violet were at the forefront of today’s Pokémon Presents broadcast. There’s a lot that has been revealed, so let’s get right to it. Here’s the latest trailer:

Let’s break down the major highlights:

  • The New Region is Called Paldea: This new locale is inspired by Spain and contains lakes, high peaks, wastelands, and mountain ranges to explore.
  • The Terastal Phenomenon Makes Pokémon Glimmer and Shine: When a Pokémon in Paldea Terastallizes, its body becomes like a gem. Tera Orbs allow Pokemon to make this transformation once per battle. The Pokémon also receives a major power boost that lasts throughout the remainder of the altercation. Using something called Tera Orbs, which must be recharged between battles.
  • Tera Types: There are 18 different Tera Types, and if you pair them with corresponding moves of the same type, there are a lot of powerful combinations to take advantage of.
  • Tera Raid Battles: Team up with three other Trainers and take on Terastallized Pokémon.

Some new Pokémon were also shown off today:

  • Fidough: A Fairy Type puppy Pokémon.

  • Cetitan: An Ice Type Terra Whale Pokémon.

  • Paldean Wooper: This version of Wooper is a Poison Type fish Pokémon.

Finally, those who purchase Pokémon Scarlet and Violet early will get a special Pikachu.  This version of the electric mouse knows the Fly move and also is a matching Flying Tera Type.

It’s all rather exciting stuff to learn as the march towards November carries on. Will you be picking up either Scarlet or Violet when they launches this fall? Tell us down below!
