If you are here, it can only be for one reason: close to day one, you want to know what you need to know about Pokémon Scarlet and Violet but you don’t know where to start. There must be a precise order, though, right? We have tried to bring together the most nagging doubts for all players (or, for the sake of user retention on the part of the official social channels, the Coaches), especially those who may not have appreciated Sword and Shield for what they are, in the shadow of what we all wanted them to be. But before we get to the errors from which Game Freak he learned, let’s start at the beginning…literally.

Who starts well…

To be halfway there, the first thing you need to know about Pokémon Scarlet and Violet is it starter to choose. In the past it was easy to decide which partners to start your adventure with, but this time the choice could prove more complicated.

In summary: who plays a Scarlet will have the opportunity to capture (and ride) Koraidonwhile the choice for owners of Violet it will fall back on Miraidon. In both cases, they will help us climb hills, travel on the surface of the water or soar in the air. We have no confirmation (not from officers, at least, wink follows), but Koraidon is rumored to be of type Fight/Dragon and Miraidon instead belongs to the typology Electro/Dragon. Their names are respectively the Japanese words for “ancient” e “future“, accompanied by the suffix “-don”. Either way, they’re excellent scooters, and if the Auros region has taught us anything, it’s that every Pokémon game gets better with a motorcycle.

Il battle system the new games certainly do not deny the well-known sense of familiarity associated with the series. That didn’t stop Game Freak from wake him up a bit’. Of course the turn-based battles with trainers and local fauna are still the same, but now there is also the possibility of fighting without lifting a finger. Before making you cry out to heresy, know that we only talk about the clashes in the overworld with wild Pokémon.

A diamond is forever, until the next region – what to know about Pokémon Scarlet and Violet

First there was Mega Evolution. Then came the Z-Moves. And after the Dynamax, now it’s the turn of another stroke of genius: the Teracristal phenomenon. Beyond transforming your creatures into walking Swarowskis, the effect obtained will be to give them very special caps. The Teratype is, as the name implies, a type with which to further corroborate the attacks they already enjoy STAB.

The Dynamax will have vanished, but the possibility of making gods Raid remains. The speech is still the same: by finding themselves in the appropriate dens, the players will be able to catch a special Teracrystallized Pokémon. Clearly, the potential opened up by multiplayer speaks for itself: the most tenacious collectors will be able to aim for Pokémon with more flattering statistics or, better yet, particular Therapies.

Our rival in the game will be Ask for it, which to the detriment of the not very encouraging name (since the times of “supereffective on enemy Pokémon!” have passed) promises to be sunny and energetic. She will probably be our mentor during the early stages of the game, but as an “experienced” trainer (quoting the official site) she probably won’t hold hands like Hop a Galar. As for the school where the game is set, it depends on the version we have in our hands. Scarlet’s academy takes its name from orangesthat of Violet fromuva. And the colors of the basic clothes available to us at the beginning of the game will depend on this.
