Pokémon Scarlet and Violet now have a trailer and release date. The latest additions to the long-running Pokémon game series are set to arrive on Nintendo Switch on November 18. This announcement was accompanied by a three-minute-long trailer for Pokémon Scarlet and Violet. These games will be the first fully open-world Pokémon games that will give players the freedom to explore any region of their choice, instead of it being dictated by the story. There will also be a new four-player co-op multiplayer experience on Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, along with the traditional trading and battling multiplayer modes.
According to the new Pokémon Scarlet and Violet trailer released by Nintendo, it will introduce two new legendary Pokémon — Koraidon and Miraidon. Koraidon will feature on Pokémon Scarlet, whereas Miraidon will be available in Pokémon Violet. Besides these, players will begin their adventure with new starter Pokémon — Grass Cat Sprigatito, Fire Croc Fuecoco, or Water Duckling Quaxly. The trailer also offered a glimpse at the two new Pokémon trainers — Sada and Turo — who will appear in Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet, respectively. There will also be Nemona, who will serve as the player’s in-game guide.
As we previously mentioned, exploration in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet will not be limited by the story. Players will be able to visit any region in the order they choose. This time around, there will also be a four-player co-op multiplayer experience. Nintendo has not revealed whether the games will feature specific co-op regions, or whether the co-op parties will be able to explore the whole map. However, the Pokémon Scarlet and Violet trailer depicts a co-op party exploring drastically different regions, so the former might be true.
