Pokemon Scarlet and Violet Coming Later This Year

Pokemon Scarlet and Violet Coming Late This Year

Pokemon gen 9 is coming later this year and is titled Pokemon Scarlet and Violet. It feels like maybe there shouldn’t be another big Pokemon game after Legends of Arceus, but hey, more Pokemon. Personally, I just can’t wait for the discussion on the graphics to rage on again for the rest of the year. That’s my favorite part of Pokemon announcements.

Gen 9 was revealed in a new trailer that showcases some regions, towns, and the new starters. I’m interested in learning about some new features, but the game does look very lively from the trailer.

One change that seems to have been implemented is Pokemon are now roaming around towns as well as the wilds. This would go a long way in making the towns feel more alive. These towns are supposedly filled with people and their Pokemon; it would be nice to see more of the Pokemon actually doing stuff.

Pokemon Scarlet and Violet looks to be building from Legends of Arceus. The trailer shows what appears to be large open areas, so there is a possibility gen 9 is full open-world. That combined with more lively towns would be a nice jump up for the Pokemon franchise.

I’m just glad Pokemon is finally making big changes. It seems they are done just coasting by and want to make great games again. Pokemon games are almost always fun, but they have grown repetitive. Legends of Arceus was a huge shake-up, and Pokemon Scarlet and Violet look to continue that trend.

I am disappointed they are back on the two-game trend again. It’s pointless and just seems greedy. Far from a deal-breaker, but a bit of a disappointment.

Pokemon Scarlet and Violet are launching late this year on the Nintendo Switch.
