Train2Game News More Details On Pokémon Scarlet & Violet

The Pokémon Company International and Nintendo shared that the Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet video games will launch on November 18, 2022, and announced newly discovered Pokémon in an all-new trailer on the official Pokémon YouTube channel.
 
Digital pre-orders for the games are available starting today on Nintendo eShop.
 
Cover Art Reveal
The new Legendary Pokémon appearing in these titles, Koraidon and Miraidon, are on each cover of the retail version of the game, and the title logos are embellished with foil stamp-like designs that use these Legendary Pokémon as motifs. The packages of these games have a similar look to the covers of old books and evoke the feeling that a new story lies ahead.
 
Multiplayer
Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet are the first open-world RPGs in the Pokémon series. Along with series staples, such as trading and battling Pokémon, players will be able to explore the various locations of the region in these games with up to four players.
 
New Characters and Pokémon
 
Professor Sada and Professor Turo
For the first time, one of two different professors will appear in the game depending on which version players choose. In Pokémon Scarlet, players will meet Professor Sada, and in Pokémon Violet, players will meet Professor Turo. Each professor is carrying out research into lore passed down in the region.
 
Nemona
Nemona has a sunny, energetic disposition and is passionate about Pokémon battles. She’s an experienced Pokémon Trainer and serves as a friend and reliable guide for players on their adventures.
 
On their journey, players will encounter many never-before-seen Pokémon, and among them are the following three, which Nemona uses on her team.
 
Pawmi
In addition to the electric sacs in its cheeks, Pawmi has electricity-discharging organs on its forepaws. It generates electricity by rubbing its cheeks, then it shocks its opponents by touching them with the pads on its forepaws.
 
The fur that covers its body is good insulation against the cold and serves the purpose of storing electricity. When it feels uneasy, this cautious Pokémon will begin rubbing its cheeks, preparing itself to discharge an electric shock.
 

  • Category: Mouse Pokémon
  • Type: Electric
  • Height: 1′
  • Weight: 5.5 lbs.
  • Ability: Static / Natural Cure

Lechonk
Lechonk uses its sense of smell to find and eat only the most fragrant wild grasses and the richest Berries. As a result of its dining habits, it has come to radiate an aroma resembling herbs that Bug-type Pokémon dislike. If attacked by an opponent and startled, it will charge forward in a panic.

It may appear fat at first glance, but in reality, the Pokémon’s body is mostly muscle built by constantly walking around in search of food.

  • Category: Hog Pokémon
  • Type: Normal
  • Height: 1’8″
  • Weight: 22.5 lbs.
  • Ability: Aroma Veil / Gluttony

Smoliv
The oil that comes out of its head has a very strong bitter taste, and it is not suitable for consumption.
When startled or attacked, Smoliv will shoot this oil out, slowing its opponent down. It will then seize that moment to run away.

In the fruit on its head, Smoliv stores oil made from nutrients it gathers through photosynthesis. As a result, it can go for a week without eating or drinking. It prefers dry and sunny climates, and it seems to spend its days sunbathing.

  • Category: Olive Pokémon
  • Type: Grass/Normal
  • Height: 1′
  • Weight: 14.3 lbs.
  • Ability: Early Bird

New Details about First Partner Pokémon
New insights on Sprigatito, Fuecoco, and Quaxly—the three Pokémon from which players will choose their first partner Pokémon—have been revealed.

Sprigatito
Capricious and attention seeking, it may sulk if it sees its Trainer giving attention to a Pokémon other than itself.

When Sprigatito kneads and rubs with its forepaws, a sweet aroma is released that can mesmerize those around it. This aroma has therapeutic qualities and makes opponents lose their will to battle. The composition of its fluffy fur is similar to plants, letting it create energy by absorbing sunlight. It adds moisture to its fur by grooming itself, which aids its ability to photosynthesize.

  • Category: Grass Cat Pokémon
  • Type: Grass
  • Height: 1’4″
  • Weight: 9 lbs.
  • Ability: Overgrow

Fuecoco
Fuecoco is laid-back and does things at its own pace. It loves to eat, and it will sprint toward any food it finds with a glint in its eye.

External heat is absorbed by the square scales on Fuecoco’s stomach and back, then converted into fire energy. These scales are always warm, and at times they can also grow very hot. Flickering atop Fuecoco’s head is fire energy that is leaking out from inside the Pokémon’s body. When Fuecoco gets excited, its head spouts more flames.

  • Category: Fire Croc Pokémon
  • Type: Fire
  • Height: 1’4″
  • Weight: 21.6 lbs.
  • Ability: Blaze

Quaxly
This serious-mannered Pokémon will follow in its Trainer’s wake. Quaxly is tidy, and it especially dislikes getting its head dirty.

Its body is always glossy because the gel secreted by its feathers repels water and grime. The coif on its head is slicked back using a rich, moist cream, and it becomes unkempt when dry. It has strong legs and can swim without difficulty even in places with strong currents. In battle, it kicks its opponents swiftly and repeatedly.

  • Category: Duckling Pokémon
  • Type: Water
  • Height: 1’8″
  • Weight: 13.4 lbs.
  • Ability: Torrent

Train2Game News Pokemon Day 2022 Updates

Today, The Pokémon Company announced Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet, new video games coming to the blockbuster series that first captivated fans with the Pokémon Red and Pokémon Green games 26 years ago.

The announcement was made during a special Pokémon Presents video presentation streamed online to fans around the world on Pokémon Day, the annual fan-focused, pop-culture holiday celebrating the launch of the original Pokémon games on February 27, 1996.

Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet will launch in late 2022 and be available exclusively on the Nintendo Switch™ system.
 

“Trainers will once again embark on an epic journey of discovery and exploration,” said Tsunekazu  Ishihara, president and CEO of The Pokémon Company. “Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet will be an adventure unlike any other, and I cannot wait to share this incredible experience with all of you.”
 
New updates for the recently released Pokémon Brilliant Diamond, Pokémon Shining Pearl, and Pokémon Legends: Arceus games were also announced in addition to in-game events for Pokémon GO, Pokémon Café ReMix, Pokémon Masters EX, and Pokémon UNITE in celebration of Pokémon’s 26th anniversary.

Details about all announcements made today follow:
 
Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet
Developed by GAME FREAK inc., Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet take a new evolutionary step in the Pokémon main series. Trainers can explore an open world where various towns with no borders blend seamlessly into the wilderness. Pokémon can be seen everywhere in this wide-open world—in the skies, in the sea, and on the streets. 
 
As one of the main characters, Trainers will jump into the world of Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet to begin their adventure, where they will have a different outfit depending on which game they are playing. Trainers will then choose either Sprigatito, the Grass Cat Pokémon, Fuecoco, the Fire Croc Pokémon, or Quaxly, the Duckling Pokémon to be their first partner Pokémon before setting off on their journey.

Pokémon Legends: Arceus
Daybreak, a software update (Ver. 1.1.0) for the Pokémon Legends: Arceus game, will be available starting today at 7:00 a.m. PST, February 27, 2022. In the Daybreak update, Trainers will begin investigating mysterious mass outbreaks of Pokémon that are popping up all over the Hisui region. Players will also have a chance to battle powerful opponents—like Legendary Pokémon and wardens—adding yet more options to the Pokémon battle experience.[2]
 
In celebration of Pokémon Day, Trainers can also receive items that will help them on their adventure in Pokémon Legends: Arceus. They can receive these items by entering the password ARCEUSADVENTURE in the Mystery Gifts menu in their game before 7:59 a.m. PST on Thursday, March 31, 2022. This gift includes 30 Ultra Balls, 30 Gigaton Balls, and 30 Jet Balls.[3]
 
The production of an online animated series set in the Hisui region has also begun. This series will feature an original story line and is anticipated to launch later in 2022.
 
Pokémon Legends: Arceus brings Trainers to the vast Sinnoh region as it existed in the past, long before the setting for Pokémon Diamond and Pokémon Pearl was established. For more information about Pokémon Legends: Arceus, please visit Pokemon.co.uk/LegendsArceus.
 
Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Pokémon Shining Pearl
An item called Oak’s Letter will be distributed in the Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Pokémon Shining Pearl games starting today, February 27, 2022. Trainers can receive Oak’s Letter by choosing Get via Internet from the Mystery Gift menu in the game.[4] Once a Trainer receives Oak’s Letter, they can talk to Professor Oak on Route 224. He will then ask for their cooperation regarding a stone tablet like one found in the Kanto region. As the Trainer assists Professor Oak, the Mythical Pokémon Shaymin will appear. Trainers can follow it and try to add it to their team. Shaymin is the Gratitude Pokémon and is able to change into its Sky Forme using the Gracidea item.[5]
