It was very foreseeable that the Scarlet and Purple Pokémon would appear at some point in the Pokémon Presents that took place on the occasion of the pokemon day 2023 and the truth is that they have made an appearance in the best possible way, since it has been announced that Paldea’s adventure will be expanded this year with two new expansions.
Both will be distributed in a pack called The hidden treasure of Area Zero, which will leave us with two new stories. Part 1 will respond to the name of the turquoise maskwith a planned release in fall 2023, while Part 2 will be called the indigo disc and is expected to see the light sometime in the winter of 2023.
Acquiring the DLC in question will give you access to these two parts where you can use the same saved data to play the same game you already had. At the moment, the few data that have been provided regarding these expansions are the following:
- Part 1: The plot takes place in the Noroteo region, outside the Paldea region, where the students will go on a school excursion.
- Part 2: the trainers will come to the Arándano Academy as exchange students.
Also, another great reason not to overlook these expansions is that it will bring back some pokemon from previous generationss that were not available until now, specifically the following:
pokemon part 1
pokemon part 2
Of course, they will not be the only ones, because it will also be possible to capture a couple of new legendary Pokémon. In Part 1 it will be ogerpon with a scary mask and in Part 2 it will be Therapagoswhich will be surrounded by a resplendent aura.
The expansions will be available for purchase starting today. Those who get hold of them will take in exchange a pack of exclusive uniforms for their characters, although the best gift is the chance to capture a Zoroark from Hisui that cannot be obtained in the normal way during the course of the adventure. In turn, it has the Extra Pay movement and has the Sinister teratype, so you have to get hold of all this before October 31 if you want to receive it in your games.
More Pokémon and features
The surprises have not ended there, because the presentation has also served to reveal Ripplewater and Ferverdor, the paradox forms of Suicune and Virizion and which will cause their types to change to Water/Dragon and Grass/Psychic, respectively. The first will only be available in Scarlet Pokemon and the second will be exclusive of pokemon purplebut you can start preparing a good team for it because you will only get them if you defeat them in a Teraincursion.
You can only capture them once, although you can face them as many times as you want to get more rewards in exchange. And best of all, the event will start today! So now you have a good excuse to get into the game.
On the other hand, another function that will arrive today is the connection of the games with Pokémon GO. In the mobile title, when receiving Gifts from friends, the attached postcards can be saved, which is used to capture a Vivillonso that the pattern of these Pokémon will be the one that will be reflected in those that appear in the Paldea region.
What’s more, those who send postcards will make Pokémon GO Gimmighoul Forma Andante appears. As it happens in the Nintendo Switch games, it is necessary to collect 999 coins for it to evolve into Gholdengo, so in the mobile title you will have to follow the same example, so you already have a good task ahead of you.
Finally, The Pokémon Company has warned that the connection of Pokemon Scarlet and Purple with Pokémon Home, in order to be able to send the Pokémon from one place to another. In fact, that will be the only way to get a Walking Forme Gimmighoul to carry over to Paldea matches.
