The Pokémon Company released a new 14-minute trailer for the Nintendo Switch version of Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet on Thursday, with little over a month until the games’ November release.
The Pokémon Company lays out a huge amount of genuine gameplay in this lengthy movie, which follows four different Pokémon trainers as they go across the new Paldea area. Some of the many adorable features include taking a bath with your Pokémon, cooking sandwiches, and playing soccer, as well as an in-depth look at exploring and battling, many narratives, and trade.
A new Girafarig evolution called Firagarif was also introduced by the Pokémon Company. “Both of Farigiraf’s brains are connected by thick nerves, enhancing its psychic energy, and it can generate psychic waves from the antennas on its head,” reads the official description of the evolved form, which merges the two heads of the Girafarig.
Scarlet and Violet versions of Pokémon will be available on the Nintendo Switch on November 18th. It’s the ninth installment in the long-running series, and it takes players to a brand-new territory called Paldean, which takes design cues from the Iberian Peninsula (Spain and Portugal) and has a plethora of brand-new Pokémon to collect.
Some of the new Paldea animals that have been announced by The Pokémon Company include the Grafaiai, Fidough, Paldean Wooper, Cetitan, Cyclizar, Smoliv, Lechonk, and Pawmi. In addition to Koraidon and Miraidon, the new beginning Pokémon Sprigatito, Fuecoco, and Quaxly all make an appearance. The wriggly Pokémon Wiglett, which resembles Diglett, was just unveiled in anticipation of Thursday’s presentation.
With an “open-world experience,” according to The Pokémon Company, players may explore the world of Pokémon Scarlet and Violet’s Paldea in any order they want and encounter any of the game’s many Pokémon at their own pace. This is a break from the developer’s prior mainstream series games, in which trainers must complete gyms and battle opponents in a certain order. In addition to their trip to Victory Road, Pokémon Scarlet and Violet will have two more options.
