Pokemon Scarlet and Violet Announced, Releasing in 2022


The Pokemon Company held a Pokemon Presents broadcast today, and the final announcement was a big one: the next generation of the series is arriving later this year, and the games will be called Pokemon Scarlet and Pokemon Violet.

We saw a brief teaser trailer of what to expect. It started off with a live-action portion featuring a police officer investigating an old, dusty room inside a building. Then we got a glimpse of some never seen before areas of a Pokemon region, featuring Pokemon we already know in brand new towns and locations.

The most exciting part of this trailer is that we got to see a glimpse of the three new starter Pokemon of the region: a grass-type cat, a fire-type crocodile, and a water-type duck. Here is what they look like:

Based on the trailer, it looks like this next generation of Pokemon will be similar in artistic style to Pokemon Legends: Arceus, the latest game in the series. However, we do not yet know if the gameplay will be more similar to that game or like the last new generation, Pokemon Sword and Shield.

After the Pokemon Presents broadcast, the official Pokemon Twitter account shared the trailer for Pokemon Scarlet and Pokemon Violet, stating that it’s “an open-world adventure.”

We’ll be sure to update you when there is more information revealed, but until then, you can watch the Pokemon Presents broadcast and the official announcement of Pokemon Scarlet and Pokemon Violet below. The final announcement begins at the 10:47 timestamp.
