Whether you like Pokémon or not, each announced episode remains an event. And while Legends Arceus is only a few months old, it’s Scarlet’s turn | Violet to take over. The Game Freak team (dad and main developer of the series) also unveiled a new trailer a few days ago. The opportunity to learn a release date – November 18, 2022 – and to see the obvious: yes, 9G will indeed be based on what has been put in place in Arceus, the first Pokémon to offer an open world. This will therefore also be the case for Scarlet | Purple. As they say, the risk pays off: despite the mixed reception sometimes reserved for Legends, it’s still a commercial hit for Game Freak: 6.5 million units sold in its first week, the second best start of the license over the same period (just behind Pokémon Sun | Moon). Test transformed for the studio which intends to continue like this.

OPEN WORLD MANAGEMENT

Open world is one of the first things players mentioned when we asked their opinion about the ninth generation of pocket monsters. “My expectations are to see what we can do in the open world” Explain Hyru, on Twitter. It is precisely theone of Arceus’ flaws : large, relatively empty areas, with little to do except capture Pokémon. It is important that Game Freak reviews its copy for this point. For now, the official website of Scarlet | Violet doesn’t say much more. “You’ll experience a new style of adventure in a world you can explore freely, at your own pace and in any order you like, regardless of the main storyline.” Puzzles, more side activities, other Pokémon Baron? The tracks are numerous but it is still a mystery.

A SCENARIO AT THE HEIGHT

As long as we are talking about the scenario, many Internet users have raised the need to have a worthy storymore “substantial and mature” to use the words from Nycena, on Twitter. press to quote Pokemon Black | White for reference. In this opus, the player is confronted with an organization that militates against fights involving pocket monsters (therefore against the game system at the heart of the license). A daring and well seen angle, unfortunately rare to date in Pokémon games. Like its mechanics, more accessible than originally – described as “too easy” by fans -, the series seems to have found its cruising speed in order to appeal to as many people as possible. Going back to Scarlet | Violet, we don’t know much at the moment, except that the open world should offer “incredible richness” according to the official site. Small twist nevertheless: The ninth generation will welcome for the first time not one but two teachers. Olim in one version and Turum in the other. “Each is conducting research on certain enigmatic aspects of the region’s history” can also be read.

MORE THE MERRIER, THE MERRIER ?

Not one but two teachers, but also up to three players online to go on an adventure. Yes, yet another first: Scarlet | Violet seems more than ever bet online on the sidelines of the classic exchanges and fights. Even if the site does not say more on the subject, we are entitled to wonder. “It’s good to tell us that there will be multiplayer but to do what?” writing for example Natsu, on Twitter. Why not imagine an open world where two hunters could help each other in combat to face overpowered creatures, in the vein of Sword | Shield ? It is hoped that this will give the franchise a boost. Pokemon Scarlet | Violet should give news in the coming months.
