Our Pokemon Futures Have Been Revealed!
The next two mainline Pokemon games will be Pokemon Scarlet and Pokemon Violet. They were revealed yesterday during a special Pokemon Day livestream, along with some other updates to existing games. Now that I own a Nintendo Switch, I am all prepared for Scarlet and Violet this holiday season!
Based on what little we know so far, it’s looking like Pokemon Legends: Arceus was a testing ground for open world gameplay. Scarlet and Violet are apparently going to be true open world, seamless travel between wild areas and cities and towns. A big, open sandbox of Pokemon adventuring! Obviously, I love the sound of that.
The three new starters are Sprigatito the grass cat, Fuecoco the fire crocodile and Quaxly the water duck. Right now, I’m leaning towards Fuecoco, though I’m pleased to say that I like all three. This is good news for me, considering I did not care for the starters in Arceus or Sword/Shield. So consider my excitement level already starting off at a good spot!
Pokemon Scarlet and Violet are promised by the end of the year! Let’s keep our hopes up!
