The upcoming generation of Pokémon arrives in a new region based on Spain.

The Pokémon Company announced two new Pokémon games this weekend, Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet, the new games in the saga with which the expected ninth generation will arrive, offering us a new role-playing adventure in which to catch creatures and train them to face other players and wild Pokémon, which incorporates many elements from Pokémon Legends Arceus.

The Pokémon Company has revealed the next titles in the series just a month after the release of Pokémon Legends Arceus. Pokémon Legends Arceus appeared to be the next “generation” of Pokémon games, but with the news made yesterday, Legends Arceus now appears to be a “beta test” of what we’ll be getting at the end of the year.

New starters and a completely new region

The three starting in the game have been given little information, but we do know their names and a few details about them. We have the plant-type starter Sprigatito, the fire-type starter Fuecoco, and the water-type starter Quaxly.

Similarly, no information has been released regarding the new area where this new voyage would take place. Despite this, everything about the game appears to be set in Spain, based on the circumstances shown in the video, the names of the starters, and the artistic style of the key art in both games.

The game will have a totally open environment with no loading screens, connecting villages, cities, wilderness regions, and dungeons. Similarly, the Pokémon will be able to explore the streets, skies, roadways, and oceans of the game with complete freedom, as they would in their natural home.

We’ll even see them running through the streets of the places we visit, as seen in Legends Arceus, a game that is more similar to current action RPGs. Later this year, Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet will be released. These two primary titles are anticipated to be released between September and October, based on The Pokémon Company’s regular release schedules.
