Today’s a packed day for Nintendo fans! Later today we’ve got the reveal of the Super Mario Bros. movie, but for now we have a brand new trailer for Pokémon Scarlet & Violet. If you’d like to watch the trailer yourself without any spoilers, you can do so right here — otherwise, we’ll quickly recap it!
The trailer confirms once and for all that any Pokémon can have any Tera type, so there are no restrictions to Terastralization strategy! TMs are single-use again, but you can craft them at Pokémon Centers. More importantly, however, the trailer revealed a new evolution for Girafarig called Farigiraf! A new mechanic called Pokémon Picnic has also been detailed. This is apparently how you receive Pokémon Eggs now (instead of a Day-Care facility). It remains to be seen if this will make Shiny hunting faster or slower!
Pokémon Scarlet & Violet launch on November 18, and we’ll be releasing lots of helpful guides at around that time. We hope you look forward to it! In the meantime, we’ll probably keep reporting on trailer updates as they come.
