Pokémon Scarlet and Purple presents new Pokémon, and opens its pre-orders

Pokémon Scarlet and Violet formalizes new creatures, and you can already pre-order the game.

Pokémon fans had an appointment today for a Pokemon Presents surprise against a background of crisis. After several substantial leaks on the next installments of the saga, the studio has obviously decided to counter the problem by revealing its own official information, the time of a presentation in good and due form. We take stock of what to remember.

Sacha at the school of trainers

For this new generation, Pokémon offers an RPG dimension. The new titles will feature an open world “unpublished” through the Paldea region. For the players, the objective will be to integrate the Pokémon University, in order to become real treasure hunters. Less linear than its predecessors Éscarlet and purple will leave the choice between three distinct adventures: a rather classic one based on arena fights, and two other more originalthe details of which have not yet been disclosed.

9G is here, and confirms our fears

Although relatively short, this presentation was also an opportunity to see in more detail the new Pokémon that will populate the Paldea area. In addition to the traditional regional shapes confirmed by a new Axoloto, some new faces have been made official, such as Patachiot and Balbalèze. The legendaries Koraidon and Miraidon have also been entitled to some additional details, and as many feared, the two creatures will be a kind of Transformers robots, capable of taking on the appearance of a motorcycle. Vehicles to do everything, since they will help us to travel on land, on sea, but also in the air.

Emphasis on multiplayer

Thanks to your friends and Professors Olim and Turum, this new Pokémon adventure will also be an opportunity to play multiplayer, up to three simultaneously. As in Sword and Shield, Raids will be accessible to attempt to defeat and catch powerful pocket monsters. Through the Club Unionit will also be possible to explore the world with friends.

Finally, and because it is now an obligation with each new generation, the new improved form of the pocket creatures has been unveiled. It’s about Teracrystallization phenomenon, which turns Pokémon into sparkling gems. Note that each species will be able to transform, which was not the case with the Gigantamax forms. Unsurprisingly, Teracrystallization will allow your companions to become stronger, and boost their usual type. Some will also be able to change type during the transformation.

Available from today for pre-order, Pokémon Scarlet and Purple will be released on next November 18 on Nintendo Switch.
