No other details were provided, so it's unclear exactly what we'll be shown in this new trailer. With Pokémon Scarlet and Violet just a little over a month away from release, it's time to start getting as many details as possible, including more information on all confirmed Pokémon in Scarlet and Violet

Amusingly, this makes October 6 a busy day for Nintendo, as the company is holding a Nintendo Direct for the Super Mario Bros. Movie, which is scheduled to launch in theaters on April 7, 2023, after being delayed out of the initial Holiday 2022 window.

Pokémon Scarlet and Violet are currently slated to launch on Nov. 18, 2022, exclusively for the Nintendo Switch. 


Pokémon Scarlet

In the first open-world Pokémon game, players can take a journey through a region inspired by the Iberian Peninsula. Pokémon Scarlet features the legendary Pokémon Koraidon, whose name is reminiscent of the Japanese word "ancient". There's plenty of new friends to acquire in this new entry for the long-running series.
