During today’s Pokémon Presents the 9th generation of Pokémon was finally revealed. Pokémon Scarlet Version and Pokémon Violet Version were shown off in a trailer that gave a look at some details from the upcoming games.
The trailer shows off a vivid open open world filled with different environments brimming with Pokémon. Many existing Pokémon are shown to be in the game, confirming that the titles will have a mix of older Pokémon alongside the newer Pokémon. The graphical style has stepped up from the previous entries with closeups of Pokémon showing off the detail in their fur and scales. The visual style looks like it combines the modern sensibilities and style of Pokémon Sword and Shield with the vast open spaces of Pokémon Legends Arceus.
