The Pokémon Company has just dropped a bombshell on a new trailer for Scarlet and Violet Pokémon, featuring tons of new features, characters, and a release date.
The first major change from previous generations is the introduction of two new teachers, one for each game. Scarlet players will be able to spend time with Professor Sada, while Violet players will meet Professor Turo, incredibly handsome, who we are sure is already the object of mountains of fan art. We were also introduced to the player’s friend and rival, Nemona, who wears a mysterious glove in her right hand … who knows what it is.

Of course, there are also plenty of new Pokémon to look at, with three adorable new friends revealed along with the legendary ones in the box. These are the Pokémon Pawmi electric mouse, the Smoliv normal grass / olive Pokémon, and the Lechonk Pokémon, the fans’ favorite normal type pig. Yes, it’s called Lechonk and it’s amazing.

These boxing legends I’ve mentioned are also pretty interesting, with some pretty fascinating designs quite different from anything else in the series so far. Scarlet players will encounter the mysterious and gifted Koraidon, while Violet players will come face to face with Miraidon, a futuristic electric dragon with massive jets for its legs. Strange, but great!

Perhaps the most interesting revelation of the trailer, however, was the announcement of the online multiplayer for four players. That is, four players, in the same world at the same time, interacting with the world at large, not the multiplayer that is in the wild area of Sword and Shield. It is unknown at this time what kind of multiplayer game the game will play. following description of your multiplayer:
Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet allow multiplayer play for up to four players, and along with the basics of the series, such as swapping and fighting Pokémon, you’ll be able to explore different locations in the region in these games with other players. You can discover new Pokémon and explore unfamiliar areas with your friends and family, opening the door to a more beautiful and fun adventure than ever!
And of course, we get to the release date. For no one, it will be released at the end of the year, just when most people will buy holiday gifts. The release of Pokémon Scarlet and Violet is scheduled for November 18 this year, and you can now “pre-order” the games in the eShop. We imagine that retailers will soon open pre-orders as well.

We will provide more information as it becomes available.
