During Pokémon Day, Game Freak released the reveal trailer for Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, the ninth (and new) generation of Pokémon. Despite only having a video that quickly shows the game’s world, it is possible to check out the three starter Pokémon and get an idea of the title’s debut date: late 2022.
The three starting creatures are: Sprigatito, a plant cat, Fuecoco, a fire crocodile, and Quaxly, a water duck. According to the game’s official website, Pokémon Scarlet and Violet “will take a step forward in the evolution of the franchise, allowing you to explore a content-rich open world”.
While nothing has been confirmed so far, the new games will likely adopt the evolved formula of Pokémon Legends: Arceus, which took the franchise to a whole new level. In the video, we also see more of the universe in which the game will take place and a look at the graphics of the map and characters, which seems to have improved a lot compared to its predecessors.
Pokémon Scarlet and Violet arrives on Nintendo Switch at the end of 2022. So, what will your starter be?
