Pokemon Scarlet and Violet are coming later this year! But when is the Pokemon Scarlet and Violet Release Date? And are there any Pokemon Scarlet and Violet Pre Order Bonuses?
Does this game add anything new to the series? Or is it a return to tradition after Pokemon Legends Arceus? We take a look.
Pokemon Scarlet and Violet Release Date
Pokemon Scarlet and Violet are currently scheduled to release on 18th November 2022.
The game was announced during a Pokemon Presents in February 2022, before a gameplay trailer was released in June 2022 that announced the three new starter Pokemon.
The starter Pokemon will be:
Quaxly is a duck with a quiff, Sprigatio is a green cat and Fuecoco is a uhh…
We’re getting more information on the game on the 3rd of August 2022 at Pokemon Presents, so we’ll know about the gameplay loop of this new Pokemon game soon. It’ll be interesting to see whether or not it takes inspiration from Pokemon Legends: Arceus or if it’s too early for the main series of Pokemon games to do that.
What Do We Know About The Game?
In what is a first for the Pokemon series, the trailer shows that the game will have four-player co-operative play which according to the official website will allow players to “explore the various locations of the region in these games with other players. You can discover new Pokemon and explore unfamiliar areas with your friends and family, opening the door to an adventure more precious and fun than ever!”

The game is also not set out in a linear fashion, meaning that you can fight the gym leaders in any order you want to fight them. It’s not quite clear if they’ll scale in terms of the levels, but one would imagine that’s how they’ll have to work if it’s a proper non-linear game.
The Pokemon Scarlet and Violet release date marches ever closer, and soon we’ll be back in the cute world of Pokemon.
New Pokemon Scarlet And Violet Trailer!
A new Pokemon Scarlet and Violet trailer has been released showing off the new legendaries. You can even ride the legendaries throughout the world as bikes and gliders. The trailer also showed off the way that multiplayer will work within the game itself, along with a new method of mega evolution called Terastal pokemon that will turn your Pokemon into almost crystal-like creatures.
Pokemon Scarlet And Violet Pre Order Bonuses
By pre ordering Pokemon Scarlet and Violet you’ll be given a brand new Pikachu that cannot be caught during the regular game. It’ll know the move Fly and will be the Tera type of Flying.
