Pokemon Scarlet and Violet, the newest games developed by Game Freak and published by Nintendo and The Pokemon Company, just dropped a new update trailer for the games, and we’re excited. Here’s everything we know so far about Pokemon Scarlet and Violet. 

What is Pokemon Scarlet and Violet? 

Pokemon Scarlet and Violet will take place in an open-world environment that you can explore. Set in the Paldea region, you play as a young Pokemon apprentice, coming up in the ranks and studying at a local Pokemon university. 

New mechanics like “Treasure Hunt” will encourage players to explore the vast game world. You’ll be able to mount up and ride on mobile Pokemon named Koraidon and Miraidon, which transform into different modes of transportation like motorcycles and gliders. 

One of the new and most exciting features in Pokemon Violet and Scarlet is the ability to play up to 4 player co-op with your friends. It’s not immediately apparent whether you can have a concurrent save file or if you can come and go as you please, but we’ll update you as more details release.
