Of course, there is little time left to discover Pokémon Scarlet | Violet, ninth generation of the pocket monsters. First for the main series: it will be an open world, along the lines of Legends Arceus released in early 2022. It is true that the technique with large extensions is not yet Game Freak’s strong point, but the adventure calls once again.

A story of perspective:

Pokémon has a kind of voodoo magic. Able to breathe soul and extra strength into almost anything, not to mention nostalgia! That’s why I’ve always loved wandering around the (admittedly empty) areas of Arceus Legends, discovering which pocket monster is hiding behind which hill. With its open world, the next Pokémon Scarlet | Violet inspires me the same sense of adventure and escape, despite the flaws that are already apparent, including the graphics. Technique is not everything.

all for freedom

Adventure is often synonymous with freedom, and this ninth generation will put both feet on the plate. Following the latest Pokémon Legends Arceus (admittedly open game but divided into several areas with a fairly linear sequence) Scarlet | Violet seems to be taking a step forward, obviously with a real open world and above all a rather special structure. Here, Game Freak promises three independent frames further featured in the new trailer: stardust lenswhich consists of facing the different rebel groups of Team Star, the new antagonist of this episode; the spice hunt rare and secret resource guarded by Dominant Pokémon; and of course, the leaguethat will challenge us against eight champions.

At the moment, we do not know if there will be a common thread that will connect all this or if the player will simply be “fallen” in the new region of Paldea. Obviously, it is the second case that awaits us. Remember that there will also be no order for League arenas, which raises quite a few questions about the level of experience required for them. the player can chart your course as you see fit to champion status. Therefore, everything points to this Scarlet Pokémon | Violet will opt for a Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild philosophy, with legendary creatures that can swim, fly, and also climb.

happy outlook

I don’t know about you, but I find this prospect quite encouraging. Additionally, Game Freak introduces this freedom with an after-school project organized by your hero’s Academy (Orange or Raisin depending on your version). A “treasure hunt” with a simple goal, as can be read on the Scarlet website | Violet: “Explore the game universe and go to find your own treasure”. All this with, of course, Pokémon on the way, dangers (the exact number of Team Star camps is not yet known) and -we hope- mysteries to solve.

This was one of the shortcomings of Arceus Legends: open areas with certainly Pokémon but almost no points of interest. I’d like to believe Game Freak learned their lesson from Scarlet | Violet. Because walking around in an open world with three different storylines is fine, but it can quickly get boring, even if the pocket monsters act as sort of “living points of interest” that can often restart exploration. Outside of multiplayer raids, the power of teracrystallization, I hope Game Freak has more surprises prepared. Because with a well built open world and Pokémon, we could have a great adventure.
