During the most recent Pokémon Presents, The Pokémon Company revealed new information about Pokémon Scarlet and Violetwhich includes not only the name of the new region (Paldea), but also new characters, new Pokémon, and more.
The region of Paldea
Being this the first open world Pokemon game, a lot depends on how developed the Paldea region feels, and from what this welcome trailer shows, it looks like we won’t be disappointed:
Players will begin their adventure in the Paldea region, a land of vast open spaces dotted with lakes, towering peaks, wastelands, and mountain ranges. Players will find many people and Pokémon living together in a variety of places, ranging from a farming town with bountiful harvests to a port city with a bustling market. There are also Pokémon that live in treetops, rivers, and other places in the wild.
In the center of Paldea sits the largest city in the region: Mesagoza. It is here that players will find either the Orange Academy or the Grape Academy. In scarlet pokemon Y Pokemon Violetthe name of the school, its emblem, its uniforms and other details will vary depending on the version of the game played.
The Terestal Phenomenon
Game Freak is no stranger to change PokemonTurn-based combat with some kind of twist to keep the battles exciting. X and Y have mega evolution, Sun and moon have z moves, sword and shield have Gigantamaxing, and Pokémon Scarlet and Violet will have Terastallizing.
This phenomenon is found only in the Paldea region and makes Pokémon sparkle and shine like gems. When a Pokémon Terastalizes, a Tera Jewel appears on the Pokémon’s head like a crown, and the Pokémon’s body shines like a carved gemstone.
All Pokémon in Paldea can be terastallized for special powers, and terastallization allows players to improve their battle strategies by increasing the power of any move that has the same type as their Pokémon’s Tera type. There are 18 types, which means there are countless combinations of Pokemon and Tera types.

Pokémon Scarlet and VioletThe latest showcase of gave us our first look at three new Pokémon and also revealed new forms for the legendary box art Koraidon and Miraidon.
Fidough’s skin has elastic qualities and is firm and smooth at the same time. When these Pokémon get excited, they intimidate their opponents by puffing up their bodies to appear larger.

In ancient times, Wooper lived underwater in the Paldea region. After losing in a fight for territory, it seems that they began to live in swamps on land. To avoid drying out while living on land, they began to cover their bodies with a poisonous film. Their gills have hardened from living on land for so long. Their bodies are heavy and slow moving, but they can protect themselves by shooting a powerful poisonous liquid from their gills.

The residents of Paldea
Another real highlight of Pokémon Scarlet and VioletIn the last trailer we were able to see all the designs of the characters that we will meet throughout our journey. I personally think Grusha’s design is the best of the bunch so far! In total, we were introduced to five new characters, including:
Clavell -He acts as the director of the academy and will teach the player many things about his school.
jack -Mister. Jacq is very knowledgeable about Pokémon biology and is the developer of the Pokédex app for the Rotom Phone. He will also be the player’s homeroom master.
Arven – Arven is a senior at the academy. He is good at cooking and is researching healthy recipes that can help Pokémon feel better.
Penny – Penny has a bit of a shy personality and, for some reason, doesn’t seem to come to the academy very often.
Glazed Gym Gym Leader, Grusha – Grusha used to be a professional snowboarder, but now he is the gym leader of Glaseado Gym full time. He is an Ice-type specialist who has Cetitan as a partner.
