Players will be able to traverse Paldea using new legendary Pokémon Koraidon (exclusive to Scarlet) and Miraidon (exclusive to Violet), which they’ll be able to ride, fly and sail on.
Trainers will embark on a “treasure hunt” which will serve as one of the main storylines. Traditional Pokémon Gyms and Gym Leaders are also in the game, however, unlike in most Pokémon games, they can be approached in any order.

The latest video, which is viewable above, also showed off some new Pokémon including Paldean Wooper, a fresh variation of a Pokémon from Gold & Silver.
Fidough is a small dog made out of bread and Cetitan is a large ice-type Pokémon.
Terastal Pokémon were also introduced, which is a new mechanic which changes the design and stats of your Pokémon. Terastal Pokémon are crystal-like, and feature changes to their appearance, such as flowers and balloons on their heads.
Every Pokémon in the region will be able to Terastalize, and doing so will increase their stats. In certain cases, Pokémon may adopt new types as part of this process.
Terastal Raid Battles will also be part of the game and will allow up to four players to battle powerful Terastal Pokémon as part of a group.
It was previously confirmed that Pokémon Scarlet and Violet will let up to four players explore its open world together freely.
Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet will be released worldwide on November 18, 2022.
The Pokémon Company announced last week that London’s pop-up Pokémon Center will return in August.
