New Pokemon Scarlet and Violet Trailer Revealed During Pokemon World Championships

The Pokemon Company is closing the 2022 Pokemon World Championships with a new trailer for Pokemon Scarlet and Violet.

Fitting to the location, this video focuses almost entirely on competitive combat mechanics, with a handful of new moves, items, and Terastallizing.

The trailer opens with a new Pokemon: Cyclizar, a rideable dragon Pokemon that resembles the games legendary mascots, Koraidon and Miraidon. Cyclizar is able to learn a new move called Shed Tail, which creates a replacement and then swaps places with another Pokemon in your group.

The trailer also showcases some new items to equip your Pokemon during battle. The Mirror Herb copies an opponent’s stat increases, while the Loaded Dice makes it more likely that multi-strike moves, such as Bullet Seed, will strike more often.

Finally, the trailer offers a new look at Terastallizing, Scarlet and Violet’s signature new combat mechanic. As previously revealed, Pokemon can change type when they Terastallize, which can drastically change the tide of battle. Coalossal, which is normally a fire/rock type, can become a water type after Terastallizing, making it easier to activate his Steam Engine ability.

Pokemon Scarlet and Violet launch on November 18 for Nintendo Switch. Anyone who purchases a copy before February 28, 2023 will receive a special bonus Pikachu. For more, check out everything we know about Pokemon Scarlet and Violet, as well as all the new Pokemon revealed so far.
