A release date, and a new opening for the main license!
Pokémon Scarlet / Violet are therefore the two new installments of the main branch of the Pokémon branch. These two versions will be the first in the main series to feature a true open world, like what we discovered in Pokémon Legends: Arceus, but with even more freedom. And great news, both versions will be available from November 18, 2022 on Nintendo Switch. This was the estimated release period, here it is confirmed by the developers On its official website, GameFreak indicates that these games will upset the saga by its openness, and by the richness of its universe:
You’ll experience a new style of adventure in a world that you can explore freely, at your own pace and in any order, independent of the main storyline. Of course, you will have to develop your Pokémon Trainer skills, but many other discoveries and intrigues await you. Meet a multitude of individuals and Pokémon, and explore the Pokémon universe at your leisure.
As usual, we will go in search of pokemon populating the game universe, we will fight them, we will exchange them, we will discover many secrets by meeting multiple characters, but this time, Game Freak seems to rely heavily on online play, as we can read on the official website, and see it in the trailer. Details on the scope of this mode remain unclear, but here’s what we’re told:
You will not only be able to enjoy the series’ signature activities, such as trading and battling Pokémon, but also explore the various locations in the region with other players. Discover new Pokémon and explore unknown lands with your loved ones for an adventure that is richer and more fun than ever!
The new characters make the show!
Who says new pokemon games says new teacher ! This time they are not not one, but two! Players will encounter Olim in Pokémon Scarlet, while Pokémon Violent players will encounter Turum. Of course, the latter seek to understand the pokemon as well as to unravel the mysteries of their region. As for the rival, we start again on a competitive friendship, with Menzi :
Your friend Menzi has a radiant personality. She is bursting with energy and is passionate about Pokémon battles. She’s an experienced and trustworthy Pokémon Trainer who will guide you on your adventure. His fighting skills are undeniable; but it seems that she does not excel in the art of throwing Poké Balls.
Legendary Pokémon and new creatures, Game Freak reveals its game
Which naturally leads us to talk of the two legendary of these versions, which have been unveiled! As usual, the first will be found in one version, the second in the other. The first is called Koraidon, is tinged with red with a black torso, as well as a blue, pink and white crest. The second is called Miraidon and undoubtedly evokes the cosmos, with similar hues to Cosmog and Lunala from Pokémon Sun and Moon. In one case as in the other, we start on visibly reptile-inspired creatures, and especially monitor lizards. Also, and a small subtlety to note, Korai means “past” in Japanese, while Mirai evokes the “future”. The title therefore seems to have a time-based storyline.
Koraidon is a Legendary Pokémon that can be encountered in Pokémon Scarlet, while Miraidon is a Legendary Pokémon present in Pokémon Purple. It is said that these two Pokémon are endowed with incredible powers far surpassing those of other Pokémon. However, information about them remains shrouded in mystery.
Alongside the three starters Poussacha, Chochodile and Coiffeton, players will be able to meet Pohm, Gourmelet and Olivini, three of the 9th generation pokemon. These three pokemon are obviously very appreciated by Menzi, the friend of the character embodied by the player. All six have been presented in more detail, with their description, types and talents:
This temperamental and attention-hungry Pokémon tends to sulk when its Trainer shows affection to another Pokémon. When Poussacha rubs her front paws, they give off a sweet smell that fascinates the beings around. This smell has therapeutic virtues and deprives opponents of the will to fight. The composition of its silky coat is close to that of plants and allows it to create energy by absorbing the rays of the sun. This Pokémon washes its fur regularly to prevent it from drying out and to promote photosynthesis. Talent: Fertilizer
Chochodile is laid back by nature and likes to go at her own pace. He loves to eat and when he spots food, he rushes at it, his eyes sparkling. It produces Fire-type energy from the heat absorbed by the rectangular scales that cover its belly and back. Its scales are always warm, and sometimes become hot. The overflow of Fire-type energy it produces escapes from its head in the form of flames. When Chochodile is over-excited, the flames that flicker on his head multiply. Talent: Inferno
This Pokémon has a serious temperament and scrupulously follows its Trainer. He likes cleanliness and particularly hates getting his head dirty. Its feathers secrete a shiny-looking gel that repels water and dirt. He slicks the feathers back on his head with a rich, moist cream. When they dry out, these feathers become shaggy. Coiffeton has powerful legs that allow it to swim without difficulty, even when the current is strong. In combat, he chained his paws at full speed to defeat his opponents. Skill: Torrent
It’s a small electric-type mouse pokemon, which can have the Statik or Nature Medic talent: in addition to the electric pouches on its cheeks, Pohm has pads on its front legs that are used to project energy. electricity. He generates electricity by rubbing his cheeks, then electrocutes his opponents by touching them with his pads. In addition to effectively protecting it from the cold, its fur is also used to store electricity. When nervous, this cautious Pokémon rubs its cheeks and prepares to send out an electric shock.
Gourmelet uses his developed sense of smell to search for food. He eats exclusively the most fragrant wild herbs and the most succulent Berries. Due to its eating habits, its body smells of weeds that Bug Pokémon loathe. When he is surprised by an enemy attack, Gourmelet rushes forward in disaster. At first glance, his body appears to be made of fat, but in reality, it’s mostly made up of muscle developed through his constant search for food. Talents: Aroma-Veil / Gluttony.
Olivini (plant / normal)
The oil secreted on the top of its head has a strong bitter taste and is inedible. When he is surprised or attacked, Olivini projects this oil which has the effect of slowing down his opponents. He then takes this opportunity to escape. Through photosynthesis, Olivini converts nutrients into oil which it stores in the fruit that tops its head. Thus, he can last a week without eating or drinking. It does best in dry, sunny places and seems to spend its days basking in the pill. Skill: Morning
