Pokémon Scarlet & Violet - announce trailer
Pokémon Scarlet and Violet were announced in February and are set for release on Nintendo Switch in late 2022.
The debut trailer showed the game’s three new starter Pokémon, or ‘Partner Pokémon’, as they’re called this time.
They are a grass-type cat Pokémon called Sprigatito, a fire-type crocodile Pokémon called Fuecoco and a water-type duckling Pokémon called Quaxly. It’s safe to assume the player will get to choose one of the three as they begin their journey in an unknown region.
