Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Purple bring an entirely new Pokémon experience to the Paldea region, shown in a new gameplay trailer.
[Mis à jour le 07 octobre 2022 à 11h26] Only a few more weeks until the release of Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Purple. Both new games introduce us to a never-before-seen region of the Pokémon universe, as well as the ninth generation of our favorite companions. But that’s not all, the games also aim to advance the well-known Pokémon game formula in a new direction, by offering some pretty amazing gameplay innovations. They were introduced to us in a new fourteen-minute gameplay trailer, which we break down in detail below.
The next two Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Purple games will take place in the Paldea region. This new land inspired by the Mediterranean coast is the natural habitat of completely new Pokémon. You start there as a Paldea Academy student as a member of the Treasure Hunt program. You will thus embark on a long day of learning, encounters and discoveries on the roads of the region, while completing your Pokédex, catching Pokémon and participating in battles of all kinds.
In Paldea, there are several endemic processes that will impact combat, such as Teracrystallization. In battle, your Pokémon has the Teracrystallize ability, empowering Abilities tied to its Teracrystallize type. An additional mechanic that allows you to turn the tide during a poorly started confrontation. But that’s not all, you will also have the possibility of finding shiny Pokémon in the wild which will have the possibility of crystallizing in battle, offering you a much more difficult challenge. Each Pokémon can have a random Teracrystallization type among the 18 different types present in the game.
In addition to Teracrystallization, some new gameplay features are coming with these two new Pokemon releases. In particular, we can see the new “Forward” feature, which allows you to command your partner Pokémon to fight a wild Pokémon or pick up an item. A feature that will save you a lot of time. Speaking of saving time, would you know what the secret function of Miraidon, the Legendary Pokémon of the Violet Edition, is? Well, it is simply about using a motorcycle, allowing you to move at full speed along the roads of Paldea.
As for Koraidon, the Legendary Pokémon of the Scarlet version, it also has a movement function, changing the motocross style for a more classic steed, but no less fast. That’s not all, we also got a glimpse of a new activity in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet that comes in the form of Team Star’s base attack. These gougnafiers will be your rivals throughout the adventure, and they have different bases in the four corners of Paldea. You will have the chance to capture these bases by defeating all the Pokémon minions, in particular thanks to the use of the “Forward” ability that offers near real-time combat. But that’s not all, you will also have to have fought against the boss of each base in definitive combats of which we have not yet been able to see the images, and that is good.
It is a long-awaited feature that makes its arrival in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, the opportunity to travel through the world of Paldea in multiplayer mode. A cooperative mode will be available in both versions of Pokémon, with capacity for up to four players. Therefore, you will have the opportunity to participate in a Teracrystal Raid with your friends to fight against very tough Teracrystallized Pokémon. The game will remain primarily a solo game, allowing you to uncover the mysteries of Paldea, battle Titan Pokémon, become the champion of the Arenas, or even kick Team Star’s butt all alone.
If you wanted to vary your first few hours of play in the new 9G Pokémon games, this is something to celebrate. There will be three new starters, who are none other than Poussacha, Coiffeton and Chochodile. Our three little buddies offer us a new way to discover the new world of these ninth generation Pokémon games. And out of the question of depriving yourself of it. Poussacha is a Grass-type Pokémon, while Coiffeton is a Water-type and Chochodile is a Fire-type.
Who says new generation of Pokémon, also says new Legendary Pokémon. Of course, we will find these mythical animals in the two versions Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet. Koraidon will be the Legendary Pokémon of the Scarlet version, while Miraidon will be the Violet version. We also saw three new Pokémon in this trailer, in the person of Olivini (grass), Gourmelet (normal), and Pohm (elektrik), all just as cute as each other. Find all the information in pokemon official website.
Between the new Legendary Pokémon, the three starter Pokémon, and the three new Pokémon, the very recent trailer for Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Purple gave us a lot of insight into our new partners. Eight names can be mined from all this excitement to form the first Generation 9 Pokédex. A pokédex that will certainly have to be completed for Olim and Turum, your two new masters, to discover just below. For now, we focus on the new Pokémon in the Pokédex:
- Girafarig (evolving into Farigiraf)
Motorizard is the new addition to this new generation! Revealed in a Pokémon Scarlet multiplayer gameplay trailer, this large lizard is a Normal-type and Dragon-type Pokémon. . HE MEASURES 1.6m and weighs 63kg. It belongs to the category of pokemon mount. I may have the talent Change. It is described as follows: “This Pokémon has been present in the homes of Paldea since ancient times. He has a gentle temperament and it is not uncommon to see him carrying human beings on his back. This doesn’t seem to bother him at all, as the body heat of the people he’s carrying protects him from the cold. It can run at 120 km/h with a human on its back. Its extremely robust head and flexible tail not only serve to maintain its balance and absorb blows during its run, but also allow it to attack with dexterity. during fights.“
For the first time in the history of Pokémon games, your protagonists will be able to meet two different teachers depending on your version of the game, Turum is the teacher of the Violet version while Olim is the teacher of the Scarlet version. Of course, apart from a few lines of dialogue, they should not offer very different content from one version to another. A matter of taste, as is often the case when choosing between the two versions.
If the release of Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet is a small event for the Pokémon gaming community, it’s also a big moment for the world of video games. Pokémon has established itself for just over 25 years as a mainstay of pop culture, in every cultural medium imaginable. But it is in the video game where our favorite animals have created the most expectation in their audience. And finally we know the official release date: November 18, 2022 on the Nintendo switch.
