Let’s Take Another Look at Pokemon Violet and Scarlet

We’ve seen a ton so far for the upcoming Scarlet and Violet games, due out in November. It’s going to be an open world RPG — which I love — and will have a lot in common with Pokemon Legends: Arceus, which I also enjoyed. Well yesterday gave us even more information, including the stupid new game-specific transformation system.

This looks great! It’s like Arceus, but an actual normal Pokemon game. So all those theories that Arceus was a testing ground are proving correct. So I’m quite thrilled. An open world Pokemon RPG with more detail and world than ever before? Hecks to the yes!

Here’s a video that explains everything more in depth.

So I think I’m definitely going with Violet. Look at those two legendary pokemon. Why the hell does the scarlet one have wheels on its body if it’s going to run everywhere? It looks dumb as hell! It’s got those big wheels just sticking out of its body on both ends, then has to awkwardly run with its legs on either side of the wheels. Meanwhile, the violent one is just straight transforming into motorcycles and rocket ships. Hells yeah.

Pokemon Scarlet and Violet still look pretty great. And now that I own a Switch, this is probably a Day One buy for me when it comes out on Nov. 18. I’ll have something to talk to the cousins about at Thanksgiving.
