Pokémon Presents reveals 'Terastallized' Pokémon and more for Scarlet/Violet

Pokémon Scarlet & Violet — 03 August, 2022

A new Pokémon Presents has just finished airing, and revealed new Pokémon and features for Pokémon Scarlet/Violet. The region is known as Paldea and the games have been confirmed to be open world, with the gyms being completable in any order. Part of the story involves enrolling in an academy as a student - Naranja Academy in Scarlet or Uva Academy in Violet - and taking on a Treasure Hunt.

The full Pokémon Presents is below; the Scarlet/Violet portion starts at 9:20.

One of the major features is the Terastal Phenomenon, which turns Pokémon into a crystalline form. All Pokémon in Paldea can Terastallize which increases their power. Some Pokémon change type when Terastallizing, depending on their Tera Type, for example Pikachu can become Flying type.

New Pokémon revealed:

  • Paldean Wooper, a new regional form of Wooper. It's Poison/Ground type and has the ability Poison Point or Water Absorb.
  • Fidough, a Fairy type dog Pokemon, with the ability Own Tempo.
  • Cetitan, an Ice-type whale-like Pokemon. It can have the ability Thick Fat or Slush Rush.

The legendary Pokémon of the games, Koraidon and Moraidon, can be ridden like motorbikes across land, water and gliding in the sky.

Raid Battles similar to Sword/Shield return, this time with Tera Pokémon, which may have a rare Tera Type.
