Pokèmon Presents: Pokemon Scarlet and Violet announced

A new game for PS2

In breve:


Finally, a new Pokèmon generation!

Today, The Pokémon Company announced Scarlet Pokémon and Violet Pokémon, new video games coming soon in the successful series that first fascinated fans with the Pokémon Red and Pokémon Green games 26 years ago.

The announcement was made during a special video presentation of Pokémon Presents streamed online to fans around the world on the occasion of Pokémon Day, the annual pop culture festival dedicated to fans that celebrates the launch of the original Pokémon games on February 27, 1996.

There is still no official release date for Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet but, as announced, they will be launched at the end of 2022 and will be available exclusively on the Nintendo Switch™ console.

“Trainers will once again embark on an epic journey of discovery and exploration,” said Tsunekazu Ishihara, president and CEO of The Pokémon Company.

“Scarlet Pokémon and Violet Pokémon will be an adventure unlike any other, and I can't wait to share this incredible experience with all of you.”

In addition, new updates have been announced for the recently released Pokémon Diamond, Pokémon Shining Pearl and Pokémon Legends: Arceus games, as well as new game events for Pokémon GO, Pokémon Café ReMix, Pokémon Masters EX and Pokémon UNITE to celebrate Pokémon's 26th anniversary.

Scarlet Pokémon and Purple Pokémon

Developed by GAME FREAK Inc., Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet take a new evolutionary step in the main Pokémon series.

Coaches can explore a Open world - yes, the games will be open-word and not open-map like Arceus - in which various cities without borders blend perfectly with wild nature.

Pokémon can be seen everywhere in this vast open world: in the skies, in the sea, and on the streets.

As one of the main characters, Trainers will enter the world of Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet to begin their adventure, where they will have different clothing depending on the game they are playing.

Trainers will be able to choose one of the 3 new starters as their first Pokémon companion before setting out on the road:

  • Sprigatite, the Grass Cat Pokémon
  • Fuecoco, the Fire Pokémon Crocodile
  • Quaxly, the Duckling Pokémon

After their release, Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet, as is normal, will be able to connect to Pokémon HOME, a service that allows Trainers to keep the entire Pokémon collection in one place. By connecting these games to Pokémon HOME, Trainers will be able to adventure Pokémon from other regions with them in Scarlet Pokémon and Violet Pokémon.

An article will arrive in which I asphalt these two PS2 games.
