Eventually today's Pokémon Presents brought us some "new" news related to Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, the next ninth generation titles coming up Nintendo Switch the next November 18, 2022. This time around, the new trailer focused on a general overview of the Paldea region and what we will find during the adventure.

For the first time in the history of the series, Pokémon Scarlet and Violet they propose how JRPG Open World, thus giving the player the option of tackle the game activities in the order you prefer. Starting as students of the Accademia Arancia or Accademia Uva (depending on the game), the latter can choose to embark on a journey in search of treasures of Paldea, or test your skills in the challenge to gyms to become Champion.

Pokémon Scarlet and VioletIn addition to various characters such as the Ice-type Gym Leader Grusha, new pokémon have been introduced such as the cuddly Fidough (Elf) and the scary Cetitan (Ice), together with Regional Form of Wooper (Poison / Earth).

Pokémon Scarlet and Violet“In ancient times, Wooper lived underwater in the Paldea region. However, it seems that, after losing a territorial struggle, he started living in the swamps on the mainland.
To avoid getting dehydrated out of the water,
has developed a toxic mucous membrane all over the body. "

Finally, in order not to miss anything and pique the interest of VGC buffs, Game Freak has finally introduced (or one of?) The new ninth generation mechanic: the Teracristal. Pokemon hit by this particular phenomenon can obtain or enhance a particular type and - like Mega Evolutions - affect their utility during battle by giving them a eccentric headgear.

Pokémon Scarlet and Violet“In the Paldea region, teracrystallization can make the difference between a victory or a defeat in a fight. All Pokémon in the Paldea region can crystallize to gain special powers. Each Pokémon has a teratype. The teratipe does not activate until the Pokémon is teracrystallized: only then does the type of the Pokémon transform into a teratipe. For example, some Eevee will have a Normal teratype, while others will have a Water teratype. Since there are 18 types, the combinations of Pokémon and teratipe are innumerable. Having a Pokémon teracrystallize will allow you to optimize your fighting strategies by increasing the power of moves whose type matches the type of Pokémon or by changing your Pokémon's weaknesses. It will be up to you to decide when to activate this special transformation and which combinations of Pokémon and teratype to match. "
