To close out the February 2022 Pokémon Presents, Game Freak shared that there’s a new game on the way called Pokémon Scarlet and Violet.
The trailer showed a wide new area, with new and familiar Pokémon roaming in a similar vein to Pokémon Legends: Arceus. While it’s not totally clear right now, Pokémon Scarlet and Violet appear to be the start of the long-rumored Gen 9, kicking off an entirely new generation of Pokémon games.
We’ll have to wait and see exactly when Pokémon Scarlet and Violet arrive. For now, the game is slated to launch in Late 2022 on the Nintendo Switch. With that in mind, game development is tenuous right now due to resources and studios being continually impacted by the pandemic.
