A new trailer for Pokémon Scarlet and Violet has just been released on the Pokémon YouTube Channel. The trailer features a look at some new Pokémon, the Region and new characters.
The games will launch worldwide for Nintendo Switch on November 18, 2022.
Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet are available to play in the following languages; Japanese, Korean, Chinese, Simplified Chinese, English, French, Italian, European Spanish and German.

Paldea Region
The region is a land of vast open spaces dotted with lakes, towering peaks, wastelands, and perilous mountain ranges.

Rotom Phone
A must-have for traveling in the Paldea region, the Rotom Phone has several apps and features that will come in handy during your adventures. This time, the Pokédex will be loaded on the Rotom Phone as an app. Your map will also be an app on your Rotom Phone. You’ll be able to see a map of the entire Paldea region in the map app, which will naturally show your current location. You’ll also see all kinds of information, like nearby towns, Pokémon Centers, and wild Pokémon.

Pokémon Center
Adventuring in the vast Paldea region won’t be a walk in the park. In order to battle Pokémon Trainers and catch wild Pokémon, you will need to rest your Pokémon and get Poké Balls to catch more Pokémon.
To support Pokémon Trainers, there are many outdoor Pokémon Centers scattered about Paldea. Trainers can easily find Pokémon Centers even from far away—Pokémon Centers light up at night, and each of them has a Poké Ball sign on the roof.

Exclusive Pokémon:
Larvitar and Stonjourner appear in Pokémon Scarlet, while Bagon and Eiscue appear in Pokémon Violet.

Miraidon and Koraidon
It seems Koraidon and Miraidon have even more forms than those we’ve already discovered—these Pokémon are capable of changing their forms to better suit what they’re doing or what terrain they’re traveling over.

Weave three grand stories into your adventure as you meet Pokémon you’ve never seen and unique characters. These titles have the hallmark Pokémon story of going to Gyms and aiming to become a Champion, but there is no set path, so you can go to whichever Gym you want to challenge in the order you desire.
Furthermore, there are two other grand stories besides your pursuit of becoming a Champion, and many trials and tribulations await you in those stories as well. Please look forward to finding out what kinds of stories they are.
Furthermore, you can freely go back and forth between all three stories, allowing your adventure to develop in the way you want it to. Some may want to reach the rank of Champion and rush through the Gyms, while others might want to adventure at their leisure—at times searching for Pokémon or meeting all sorts of people. Everybody can experience the game the way they want to. Being able to make your very own story is one of the hallmarks of Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet.

Champion Rank
The Paldea region has a Pokémon League and a special class of pro-rank Pokémon Trainers who have achieved the Champion Rank. These Trainers have grown with their Pokémon to be able to dazzle audiences with their skills in battle.
There are facilities called Pokémon Gyms in many towns, and the leaders of these Gyms are awaiting the challenge of Trainers like you and your friends.
There is no set path to the Gyms. You can purposefully seek out a stronger Gym Leader, or you can simply stop by a Gym that happens to be located in a town you came across on your journey. This time, you get to plot your very own path along Victory Road.
If you beat all eight Gyms spread across the region and collect their Gym Badges, you will be able to take on a special test called the Champion Assessment. If you successfully pass the assessment, your strength will be acknowledged and you will be given the Champion Rank, making you an object of admiration for other Trainers.
Polish your skills with many Pokémon and Trainers, and aim for the glorious Champion Rank!

Gym Leader of the Glaseado Gym, Grusha
Grusha used to be a professional snowboarder, but he is now the Gym Leader of the Glaseado Gym full-time. He is an Ice-type specialist who has Cetitan as his partner. He is usually coolheaded, but when battles get heated, he starts showing the emotions he usually keeps pushed down.

Arrange your looks and hairstyle to freely change your appearance
In Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet, you can now make changes to your character’s eye shape, mouth shape, and more to look the way you want to look. You can, of course, change your hairstyle, hair color, and eyebrows at salons, too, so look your best when on your Treasure Hunt!

Ranging from short sleeves and shorts to warm blazers, the academy has four different kinds of uniforms in total. Additionally, you can collect a wide variety of accessories from boutiques. Wear your favorite items and try out different styles along the way on your adventure!

Terastal Phenomenon
This phenomenon is found only in the Paldea region and makes Pokémon shine and glimmer like gems.
When a Pokémon Terastallizes, a Tera Jewel appears above the Pokémon’s head like a crown, and the Pokémon’s body glistens like a cut gemstone.
It’s said that the Terastal energy that seeps from the ground of the Paldea region is involved in the phenomenon.
Many details remain unclear, but Professor Sada and Professor Turo are researching this mystery.
The Tera Jewel and the luster on the Pokémon’s body differ depending on the type.
p11_01[1].jpg p11_02[1].jpg p11_03[1].jpg
All Pokémon in Paldea can Terastallize to gain special power.

First, each Pokémon has a Tera Type. A Pokémon's Tera Type is inactive until the Pokémon Terastallizes, at which time the Pokémon's type will change to its Tera Type.
For example, some Eevee will have a Normal Tera Type, but some other Eevee have a Flying Tera Type.
There are 18 types, meaning there are countless combinations of Pokémon and Tera Types.

Terastallizing a Pokémon allows you to enhance your battle strategies by increasing the power of any moves that have the same type as your Pokémon’s Tera Type or by changing your Pokémon’s weaknesses.
When to activate this special transformation and the combination of Pokémon and Tera Types you choose to use are all up to you.

Tera Orb

This new Poké Ball that only a selected few trainers are allowed to carry.
Once you Terastallize a Pokémon, your Tera Orb will lose all its Terastal energy, and you won’t be able to use it again until it’s been recharged. You can charge your Tera Orb if you touch crystals overflowing with Terastal energy or go to a Pokémon Center.

Tera Raid Battles
Tera Raid Battles are a completely new battle format where you will team up with three other Trainers in order to take on a Terastallized wild Pokémon within a time limit. In Tera Raid Battles, you can attack without waiting for other Trainers’ turns, so it’s important that you cooperate with your fellow Trainers at a quick pace.
You’ll be able to attempt a Tera Raid Battle by touching shining crystals. The colors of these crystals correspond to the Tera Type of the Tera Pokémon you’ll encounter. They almost look like gemstones! Additionally, a sparkling pillar of light will be shooting into the sky above any of these crystals, making them easy to spot at a distance.

Naranja Academy and Uva Academy
In the center of Paldea sits the largest city in the region, Mesagoza. It is here that you’ll find a school boasting a history that few other schools do, where people from all sorts of regions come to hone their skills against each other, be it through academics or Pokémon battles.
Age is not an issue in enrollment here, so a wide range of age groups—from children to adults—take the same classes, which mostly relate to Pokémon. It seems there are a few classes that you can take WITH Pokémon too.
In Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet, the name of the school, its emblem, its uniforms, and other details will differ depending on which game version you’re playing.

New characters
Director Clavell
He acts as the director of the academy, and since you’re a new student, he will teach you many things about your school. He can be strict, but he can also be kind. He seems to be a friend of Professor Sada and Professor Turo.

Mr. Jacq is your homeroom teacher, and he teaches biology. He is very knowledgeable about Pokémon biology and is the developer of the Pokédex app for the Rotom Phone. He has a slightly airheaded side to him, and he sometimes loses himself in his research.

Arven is an upperclassman at the academy. He’s good at cooking and is researching healthy recipes that can help Pokémon feel better. He will be asking you to help him out, since he isn’t good at Pokémon battles.

Penny is in the same grade as you. She has a bit of a shy personality, and for some reason, she doesn’t seem to come to the academy very often. She is especially fond of her fluffy Eevee bag and always has it on her back.

Your adventure is bound to be more enjoyable by playing with friends, cooperating to beat Tera Pokémon in Tera Raid Battles, and sometimes even testing your skills against each other.
Additionally, with the new Union Circle feature added to the Poké Portal, you and up to three friends can adventure together in the same space, cheering each other on as you battle wild Pokémon or showing each other the Pokémon that walk along with you.
There is no single way to play using the Union Circle. You can wander around together and spend time with your friends how you want to!

Cetitan need to have tough muscles to be able to support their immense bodies, and physical attacks using their bodies have incredible power. They also migrate around the snowy regions, protected by a thick layer of subcutaneous fat.

A Cetitan has five hard horns. Among them, the horn on the upper jaw is able to gather ice energy, making the surrounding temperature extremely low and freezing the area around the Pokémon.

This Pokémon Has a Moist, Smooth Feeling to It​

Fidough’s moist, smooth skin has elastic qualities and is both firm and soft at the same time. When these Pokémon become excited, they intimidate their opponents by puffing up their bodies to appear bigger.

Its Breath Contains Useful Yeast​

Fidough ferments things in its vicinity using the yeast in its breath. Said yeast is useful for cooking, so this Pokémon has been protected by people since long ago.

They Live on the Land and Cover Their Bodies with a Poisonous Film​

In ancient times, Wooper lived underwater in the Paldea region. But it seems after losing in a struggle for territory, they began living in bogs on land.
To keep from drying out while living on land, they began to cover their bodies with a poisonous film.

Powerful Poisonous Liquid Emits from Their Tough Gills​

These Wooper’s gills have hardened thanks to living on land for so long. Their bodies are heavy and they move slowly, but they can protect themselves by shooting powerful poisonous liquid from their gills.
You may see poisoned Pokémon in areas where these Wooper live.

Early-purchase bonus
