Viewable below, the trailer shows off previously unconfirmed Pokémon, plus returning characters from the main game such as Iono and Rhyme.
Also shown off was a Synchro mode, where players can play as their Pokémon.
“Once players progress far enough in their adventure in ‘The Hidden Treasure of Area Zero Part 2: The Indigo Disk,’ they’ll be able to use a device called the Synchro Machine to see the world through the eyes of their Pokemon,” according to a press release.
“While synchronized with one of their Pokémon , they can move around and battle wild Pokémon—a fresh new way to play the game. It appears that this device is still a prototype. Players can use it once they’ve helped a scientist in the Terarium with her research.
The Hidden Treasure of Area Zero Part 2: The Indigo Disk will launch on December 14, 2023.
A large number of legendary Pokémon have also been confirmed to return, such as Moltres, Articuno, Zapdos, Entei, Suicine and Raikou.
“After completing the main story of The Hidden Treasure of Area Zero Part 2: The Indigo Disk, Trainers can meet a curious character named Snacksworth at Blueberry Academy.
“By completing Blueberry Quests (BBQs) in the Terarium, Trainers can earn snacks from Snacksworth that will allow them to encounter certain Legendary Pokémon from throughout the series back in the Paldea region! He’ll also share his extensive knowledge about these Pokémon with Trainers—as well as tall tales of his own heroic encounters with them,” said The Pokémon Company.
As previously confirmed, all starter Pokémon will be obtainable in the game, which is a first for the series.
The trailer also showed off new forms for Miraidon and Koraidon, as well as a brief look at the new type that will be introduced to the game alongside Terapagos.
In a recent hands-on preview of The Indigo Disk, we wrote: “The Indigo Disk looks to close out this chapter of Pokémon on a high note. While issues with the base game of Scarlet and Violet remain, this expansion feels far more significant than The Teal Mask and will likely introduce a whole new generation of trainers to the depth of battling that Pokémon has always had.
“Pokémon fans have been crying out for a difficult Pokémon game for years, and The Indigo Disk might just provide it, that is, if you can drag yourself away from trying to catch a shiny Oshawott.”
