Two new Pokémon games have sparked a worldwide frenzy among millions of Pokémon fans, with the promise of new characters and an entirely new world. The Pokémon Company International’s recent announcement of the two upcoming mainline games – Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet – has driven the gamers as well as the Pokémon fanatics absolutely crazy. With screenshots from both the games going viral all over the internet, let’s kick-start the journey to the wonderland of Pokémons.
The Pokémon Phenomenon
It was in 1996, when the super-exciting Pokémons were let off the Poké balls for the first time. The host of cute, cheerful, loving creatures were soon embraced by people across cultures and geographies. Almost three decades later, the Pokémon have become one of the world’s most popular pop-culture icons. From cartoons and comic strips to animation films and video games, they are almost everywhere.
Pika Pika Pika!
Among hundreds of Pokémons with different characteristic traits and special powers, Pikachu has managed to stand out. It has become the face of the widely celebrated franchise, with Pikachu merchandise selling like hotcakes in every nook and corner of the planet. Thanks to their rare abilities, Pikachu has been instrumental in making the ambience ‘electrifying’ for the Pokémon universe. At a time when there’s growing buzz around gender neutrality, the portrayal of Pikachu becomes even more interesting, as it’s 50% male and 50% female in nature.
Catch Them All!
A couple of years ago, the game Pokémon Go created a sort of pandemonium as kids, teenagers and even young adults were carried away with the irresistible urge to catch Pokémons at random places. It also speaks volumes about the astounding popularity of the Pokémon games.
The Pokémon Company International (TPCI) recently revealed that two new Pokémon games, Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet, will be released this year on the Nintendo Switch. It has been learned that the players will get the chance to explore the Paldeia region, full of lakes and mountain ranges. Naranja Academy or Uva Academy will await the gamers with a range of surprises.
These two new Pokémon games will also unlock the brand-new ‘Terastal Phenomenon’ feature, which will enable Pokémons with extraordinary powers along with a ‘Tera Jewel’. In addition to this, there would be new gameplay features like ‘Poké Portal,’ ‘Union Circle’ and ‘Tera Raid Battle.’
Gamers can hold their nerves because the new Pokémon games will witness new Pokémons too! Fidough, Paldean Wooper and Cetitan – these three will be the latest entrants to the elusive list of supernatural creatures. Koraidon or Miraidon, mysterious legendary Pokémons with rare powers will be up for grabs, at the beginning of the journey towards the unknown terrains of the Paldeia region.
New Pokémon Games Release Date
On November 18, Pokémons will be flying high as Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet will be released for the Nintendo Switch. There are added perks of ‘Adventure Set’, ‘Double-Pack Bonus’ and a long list of in-game events exclusively for early-bird gamers.
