The Pokemon Company ended today’s Pokemon Presents presentation by announcing the 9th generation of games for the franchise, Pokemon Scarlet and Pokemon Violet.
Both games are slated to arrive in late 2022 on Nintendo Switch and you can get your first look at it in the trailer below. We get to see that the game will adopt the open-world approach seen in Pokemon Legends: Arceus that released last month. Players will explore a whole new region and meet all new Pokemon along the way. Three of those were revealed today with those being the Grass, Water, and Fire starter Pokemon.
Check them out for yourself below.
The Pokemon Scarlet and Pokemon Violet games, the newest chapters in the Pokémon series, are coming to Nintendo Switch later this year. With these new titles, the Pokemon series takes a new evolutionary step, allowing you to explore freely in a richly expressed open world.
Various towns blend seamlessly into the wilderness with no borders. You’ll be able to see the Pokemon of this region in the skies, in the seas, in the forests, on the streets—all over! You’ll be able to experience the true joy of the Pokemon series—battling against wild Pokemon in order to catch them—now in an open-world game that players of any age can enjoy.
