According to the official description, “Trainers can explore an open world where different cities seamlessly merge into the wilderness without borders. Pokémon can be seen everywhere in this vast, open world – in the sky, in the sea, and on the streets. As one of the main characters, the trainers will immerse themselves in the world of Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet to start their adventure, where they will wear different outfits depending on the game. Trainers then choose either Sprigatito the Grass Cat Pokémon, Fuecoco the Firecroc Pokémon, or Quaxly the Duck Pokémon as their first partner Pokémon before setting out on their journey.”
Apart from that, the company is also rolling out a major software update for its Pokémon Legends: Arceus. The update is called “Daybreak” and includes a new quest to investigate.
It has also announced a new animated series set in the Hisui region, which is expected to debut later this year.
As part of the announcement, the company announced a major update for Pokémon Go, which will now receive Alola region Pokémon starting March 1st. The new Pokémon Unite game is also getting a bunch of new features, including new, more intense battles dubbed Fury Battles. Players who log into the game will also receive new limited edition Pokemon Day gear for their characters to wear while playing.
