The Pokemon Company and Nintendo have officially released a new Pokemon Presents! Read on below to learn more.
In Pokemon Scarlet and Pokemon Violet, explore the Paldea region, a fertile territory with new Pokemon and adventures!
BELLEVUE, Wash. August 3, 2022 During a Pokemon Present today, The Pokemon Company International disclosed additional details about thePokemon ScarletandPokemon Violetvideo games, which will be released on November 18, 2022, exclusively on the Nintendo Switch system.
On the back of all of the Pokemon World Championships 2022, additional updates were announced, as well as in-game events for Pokemon GO, Pokemon UNITE, Pokemon Cafe ReMix, and Pokemon Masters EX.
Pokemon Scarlet and Pokemon Violet Welcome to Paldea, a land of vast open spaces with lakes, towering peaks, wastelands, and mountain ranges. Players will discover a wide variety of people and Pokemon living together in a variety of settings, from a farming village with bountiful harvests to a port town. There are also Pokemon living in treetops, rivers, and other areas in the wilderness.
The center of Paldea is set on the largest city in the country: Mesagoza. Players will be able to find either Naranja Academy or Uva Academy, including the school''s name, its emblem, and its uniforms and other details. Depending on the game''s version, InPokemon ScarletandPokemon Violet will be shown.
The Pokedex will be available on the Rotom Phone as an app. Players will be able to see a map of the Paldea region in the map app, which will then show their current location. Players will also see all kinds of information, like nearby towns, Pokemon Centers, and wild Pokemon.
Terastal Phenomenon This phenomenon is only discovered in the Paldea area and makes Pokemon shine and glimmer like gems. When a Pokemon Terastallizes, a Tera Jewel appears above the Pokemons head as a crown, and the Pokemons'' body shines like a cut gemstone.
Terastallization allows players to enhance their battle strategies by extending the potential of any moves that have the same type as their Pokemon Tera Type. There are 18 types, meaning there are countless combinations of Pokemon and Tera Types.
Players may terastallize a Pokemon once per battle and the transformation will last until the battle ends. Players may need a Tera Orb to Terastallize a Pokemon, which will need to be recharged after each use. Players may charge their Tera Orb by touching crystals overflowing with Terastal energy or by going to a Pokemon Center.
Tera Raid Battles occur inPokemon ScarletandPokemon Violet when three other players gather to take on a Terastallized wild Pokemon. Trainers can then find other players to participate in a Tera Raid Battle, then choose to recruit friends or join someone else''s raid. This battle system has a time limit, which allows players to continue attacking without having to wait for other trainers to choose their actions.
Players can trade and battle with Trainers across the world by using a feature called the Poke Portal.
- Trading: In the Poke Portal, a Link Trade lets players trade with a specific person. With a Surprise Trade, after choosing a Pokemon to trade, players will be able to trade with a random Trainer somewhere in the world.
- Battling: In the Link Battle option in the Poke Portal, players will be able to have Pokemon battles with other Pokemon Trainers.
A player and up to three friends can go together in the same space thanks to the addition of the Union Circle feature to the Poke Portal.
