The Pokemon Company has released a new trailer for Pokemon Scarlet and Violet, shedding more light on the games’ new characters and multiplayer options.
Depending on which version you play, you’ll meet a different Pokemon Professor at the start of your journey, and it appears your character will be enrolled at a different academy. Regardless of which game you have, however, one character that all players will meet is Nemona, a friend and rival Pokemon trainer.
The new trailer also offers a glimpse at multiplayer. In addition to being able to battle and trade with other trainers, Pokemon Scarlet and Violet let you venture out in the world alongside up to three other players — a first for the series. Scarlet and Violet also offer a greater degree of freedom than previous installments. According to the games’ official website, “you’re free to explore at your leisure and not in an order dictated by the story.”
Finally, the trailer showcases a handful of new Pokemon, including the games’ mascots: the legendary Pokemon Koraidon and Miraidon. You can watch the full trailer above.
Pokemon Scarlet and Violet are coming to Nintendo Switch on Nov. 18. You can see all the new Pokemon revealed so far and catch up on everything we know about Pokemon Scarlet and Violet in our recap.
