In addition to Nintendo announcing a brand new Pokemon-themed OLED Switch, they also unveiled a few new Pokemon Scarlet & Violet details as well as three new Pokemon.
Trainers in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet start the game as students who are part of a study project called “A Treasure Hunt”. As this new Pokemon game will be based in an open world, you will get to choose between three separate stories intertwined throughout your adventures in the Paldea region.
The three different stories are:
- Victory Road will be your traditional go to various gyms to achieve the rank of Champion.
- Path of Legends will have players and Upperclassmen Arven searching for rare ingredients called Herba Mystica.
- Starfall Street will have players taking on Team Star, a group of kids causing trouble for the school.
Pokemon Scarlet & Violet trainers will also gain a new exploring feature called Let’s GO! While exploring the Paldea region, you can have a Pokemon exploring with you.
Trainers can use the “Let’s GO!” feature to send their Pokemon in a specific direction to pick up items in the area and have Auto Battles with nearby Pokemon.
