Revealing the new Pokémon instalment at today’s Pokémon Presents, this “all-new entry in the Pokémon series” is expected to release worldwide in “late 2022” on Switch.

Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet are coming to Switch later this year.

We also got a peek at three as yet unnamed Gen 9 Pokémon – a grass type, a fire type, and a water type, all of which are very cute – and some stunning landscapes, in both glorious sunshine and under the shine of the moon.

Beyond that, little was given away beyond confirmation that it will be “an open-world adventure”, likely not dissimilar to the later Pokémon titles.

Other Pokémon we think we spotted include Psyduck, Blissey, Magnimite, Clauncher, Meowth, and Pikachu, naturally.
Pokémon Scarlet and Violet. The games are expected to launch on the Nintendo Switch in late 2022, and the brief teaser looked reminiscent of 2019’s Pokémon Sword and Shield.

The other big news is that Pokémon Legends: Arceus, which just launched earlier this year, is getting a software update called “daybreak.” It’ll be available for free later today, and includes a new quest to investigate. The Pokémon Company also announced that it’s creating an animated series that’s set in the Hisui region from the game, which is expected to debut later this year.

The games are described as an “open-world adventure” and developer Game Freak says they “take a new evolutionary step in the Pokémon main series.” You can get a glimpse of the new starters in the image below.
