Pokemon Scarlet and Violet Reveal Official Images of New Pokemon, Gym Leaders


Nintendo has unveiled several more official illustrations for Pokemon Scarlet and Violet, including fresh looks at the recently announced gym leaders and exclusive versions. As the November release date rapidly approaches, Pokemon Scarlet and Violet are gradually showing off more and more of what fans can expect to see when launching games. Pokemon fans have already managed to admire the Paldea region, the open world of Scarlet and Violet, as well as some new pocket monsters that have joined the ninth generation of the franchise.

A new Pokemon Scarlet and Violet trailer has recently been released, again revealing a bunch of new information to fans. The traditional villainous team was revealed in Team Star Scarlet and Violet, a group of rebellious students causing trouble at the school where the player begins his Pokemon journey. The battle against Team Star marks just one of three stories a player can complete in Pokemon Scarlet and Purple, but besides showcasing narrative paths for the games, the latest trailer also revealed some new Pokemon and gym leaders.

The Pokemon that Scarlet and Violet will have are Armarouge and Serulage. Armarouge is a Fire/psychic type Pokemon, and Ceruledge is a fire/ghost type Pokemon. While fans have received a brief overview of the new creatures in the trailer, the official images of the exclusive versions of Scarlet and Violet show a more detailed look, and for nostalgic fans, these new images will probably inspire some artists to create sprite versions of Armarouge and Serulage.

Judging by Ceruleja’s heavier armor around his legs and the sword in his hands, it would be possible to focus more on his attack characteristics and speed. Looking at Armarouge, it becomes clear that this Pokemon will be more focused on defense, but its shoulder pads can slide over its arm, acting almost like a canon, which means it can also have strong special attacks. In addition to a new look at the Pokemon shown in the trailer, Pokemon Scarlet and Violet’s Gym Leader have also received official registration.

Brasseus is the leader of the grass-type gym for Pokemon Scarlet and Violet. Its design certainly looks interesting compared to other grass-type opponents. With the whip hanging from his hip, it seems like the player will be fighting Brasseus himself, not his Pokemon. Brasseus, like all gym leaders in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet, can be dealt with at any moment of the game, due to the fact that the Paldea region is fully open from the very beginning of new games.

Pokemon Scarlet and Violet will be released on November 18 on the Nintendo Switch.
