The Pokémon Company is pleased to share more news about the upcoming Nintendo Switch title Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet together with the latest trailer that has been released!
Introducing a Newly Discovered Pokémon: Farigiraf!
As a result of its Evolution, the head of its main body and the head from its tail have become one. Both of Farigiraf’s brains are connected through thick nerves, increasing its psychic energy, and it can emit psychic waves from the antennae on its head. Farigiraf’s Ability, Cud Chew, is a new Ability appearing for the first time in these titles. When a Pokémon with this Ability eats a Berry, it will eat it one more time at the end of the next turn.
Picnics Strengthen Your Bonds with Your Pokémon
You can have picnics almost anywhere when out exploring the region’s vast wildernesses.
Picnics allow you to spend leisure time with your Pokémon.
Picnics Become Even Livelier When Playing with Friends!
You can also enjoy picnics with friends while playing together through the Union Circle. Just approach another player’s picnic while you’re playing together with friends to have you and your Pokémon join.
You can take a group photo or make sandwiches together with up to three other friends, making a picnic an even livelier occasion—you may even find a Pokémon Egg while you and your friends’ Pokémon are playing together!
Note: In order to have picnics with other players via the internet or local communication, you may need to have the latest version of the game installed. A paid Nintendo Switch Online membership is required to have picnics with other players via the internet.
Introducing the TM Machine, a Handy Device That Can Make TMs!
A Technical Machine (or TM for short) is a tool that allows Pokémon to learn new moves. In these titles, there is a piece of equipment installed at every Pokémon Center called a TM Machine, which allows Trainers to make their own TMs.
TMs can be made using League Points (LP for short) and materials dropped by wild Pokémon after battle. LP can be obtained as you advance the story or by trading in materials from Pokémon. Find moves you want your Pokémon to learn at the TM Machine and try making a TM!
Make the Perfect Profile!
The profile app is where you can see what you’ve achieved during your adventures, such as how many badges you’ve gathered, how far along you are with completing the Pokédex, and even the number of sandwich recipes you’ve discovered! It also shows the Pokémon you’re currently traveling with, and you can set a profile picture using just the right combination of outfits, hairstyles, poses, and filters as well! Try making a profile that’s uniquely “you”!
