The ninth generation of Pokémon is coming to the Nintendo Switch later this year, and rather than more of the same with a few minor changes here and there, it’s already promising to be a huge jump in the series over previous major entries.
Nintendo even rode the hype train through social media — a reference to pokemon scarlet and violet As an “evolutionary” move in the Pokémon series thanks to a “rich open world” full of towns and cities that seem to blend into the wild. Obviously, there are no limits either.
This new open world design (following in the footsteps of Pokémon Legends: Arceus – which includes open world areas) was previously mentioned in Official game site about pokemon scarlet and violet. It replicates how players are thrown into an open world adventure like never before.
“Different cities blend seamlessly with borderless wildlife. You’ll be able to see this region’s Pokémon in the sky, seas, forests, streets – everywhere! You will be able to experience the true fun of the Pokémon series – fighting against wild Pokémon to catch them – now in an open world game that players of any age can enjoy.”
Unfortunately, the last part of the paragraph above also raised questions about the capture mechanics of the new game. At this point, some trainers seem to believe that the way Pokémon is hunted can go back to the “traditional” ways, where you must engage in a fight.
Coming back to the topic, it seems that the scarlet and violet are already incredibly promising. Looking to explore a fully open world Pokémon game? Are you hoping to see any mechanic in particular carry over from Pokémon Legends: Arceus or even Sword and Shield? Tell us below.
