New Pokemon Scarlet and Violet features include legendaries as “partners,” and land, sea, and air mounts
The legendary is your “partner” and will allow you to explore the map
Thanks to a new Pokemon Presents stream, we have new info on some Pokemon Scarlet and Violet features.
Nothing in terms of major bombshells dropped, but there’s plenty of stuff for fans to unpack. The narrative includes “attending an academy as a student,” with the core objective of embarking upon a treasure hunt with “three grand stories.” Of course, one of them is a series of classic gym battles.
Multiplayer was a big focus of the trailer too. The “union circle” enables co-op for “up to three friends.” You can run around the map together, and footage showed everyone riding their legendary mounts. Tera raid battles are in, borrowing a feature from Pokemon Sword and Shield: up to three other players are supported here too.
Named Pokemon shown off in the new footage include the following:
- Wooper (new Paldean form)
A gem-like form called the “terrastalize” mechanic will be part of the new Scarlet and Violet festivities, which “boost Pokemon types, and make their moves stronger.” Every Pokemon can apparently do this, and it can even change their types. As usual, like Z-Moves/Megas and all of their ilk, I expect this to be divisive.
Here’s a full recap of the stream!
