Pokemon Scarlet and Violet do not include all 910 current Pokemon species. The Pokemon Company launched a new series of Pokemon games, like Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, and the brand new Pokemon range. The new game, The Pokemon Company did clear that from the beginning of the game, that there was no Pokemon species listed in the game. In the original press release, The Pokemon Company noted that Pokemon Scarlet and Violet would be compatible with Pokemon Home, but that only Pokémon Scarlet and Violet would be able to pass it on.
In 2018, Game Freak has unleashed a huge controversy when they announced that they could use Pokemon Sword and Shield to allow players to use one of the Pokemon species for only one franchise. Their reasoning was that they could use all the Pokemon species into every Pokemon game and that they could use the other parts of the Pokemon game and that excluding some Pokemon games meant that they could shine a spotlight on other Pokemon species. A complete new pair of Pokemon games, created by the original Pokemon Homea, enabled by a game freak not to have the capability to play any Pokemon more so players can transfer from Pokemon to game to game.
The new design didn’t go all that well with fans of Pokemon, and rather the “National Pokedex” controversy. The Pokemon Company flooded every post on social media wishing the National Pokedex, while some players vowed to boycott Pokemon Sword and Shield and future Pokemon games. Rather than that, Pokemon Sword and Shield became the second best-selling Pokemon games of all time. DLC added 100 other Pokemon species. According to Legends: The Arceus system does not include some form of DLC, and the current generation of Pokemon games will be limited to the first generation to be able to catch or acquire at least one actual game.
As long as fans have been around for three years for the new Pokemon reality, I don’t expect this announcement to come with the same level of angst as before. Even though they don’t like the new Pokemon games, fans usually don’t like it because they don’t really catch them.
The Pokemon Scarlet and Violet will go on the Nintendo Switch later this year.
