Nintendo announces a new Pokémon Scarlet & Violet trailer


The Pokémon Company & Nintendo has finally dropped fresh information on Pokémon Scarlet & Violet. The second trailer gives pokemaniacs a look at some brand new Pokemon, a greater understanding of how players will interact with the world, and even our first look at the new Pokemon professors.

The first glimpse back in February gave us a look at the sunny new locales of Pokémon Scarlet & Violet, which take inspiration from real-life locations in Spain and Portugal. Alongside that, we got a peek at the new starters for the generation, Sprigatito, Fuecoco, and Quaxly. For even more new details on the latest Pokemon from the Pokemon Scarlet & Violet trailerbe sure to check out our Pokémon Scarlet & Violet new Pokémon guide for all the juicy details.

This latest trailer for Pokemon Scarlet and Violet shows off three new standard Pokemon, as well as the two box legendaries. It also reveals that in this generation, players interact with at least two Pokemon professors. This, alongside both the teaser trailer and the new box legendaries, seem to hint at a theme of past and future, or at least a dichotomy between two opposing forces, much like many Pokemon games.

Watch the latest trailer for Pokémon Scarlet & Violet with us on Wednesday, June 1. We will share the trailer as soon as it is posted. For now, look back on the very first trailer to get a glimpse of what’s to come.

Pokemon Scarlet and Violet will feature not one, but two new Pokemon professors. A female professor named Professor Sada, and a male professor named Professor Turo. Their designs seem to hint even more at a possible theme of past vs future in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet.
