Nintendo, Game Freak, and The Pokémon Company have shared a new trailer for the upcoming Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet.
Throughout this dense video, several new characters are introduced, such as Team Star, a collective set of opponents players will face during the Treasure Hunt. The boss of the team’s Fire Crew is Mela. The Grass-type Gym Leader and Pokémon League Chairwoman are also revealed.
The two stories players can embrace aside from the Gym Challenge are the Path of Legends and Starfall Street stories, which the trailer briefly highlights. The former comprises an investigation for rare ingredients called Herba Mystica, while the latter is a sort of competitive Pokémon royale against troublemaking students.
