Pokemon Scarlet and Violet Get Rid of Evolution Screens, Change Move Learning Menus
Today's Pokemon Presents introduced the third trailer for Pokemon Scarlet and Violet
As well as a longer commentary trailer that detailed all of Gen 9's features. The battle gimmick for Gen 9 in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet's fully explorable, open-world Paldea region is the Terastall phenomenon. During a fight, any Pokemon in Paldea may change its type and boost the moves of the same type, with the effect lasting until the end of the encounter.
The fauna of the Paldea region, which includes three new Pokemon in the forms of Paldean Wooper, Fidough, and Cetitan, is one of the focal points of Pokemon Scarlet and Violet's third trailer. All the new Pokemon introduced in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet may evolve at some point, and their evolutions might have a significant influence on the series in various ways, starting with Paldean Wooper, which is the first Ground/Poison-type to appear since Gen 1's Nidoran family. The trailer also featured scenes from Koraidon and Miraidon's alternative forms as well as how players may travel across Paldaea as part of the game's open world setting.
Another detail that may have gone unnoticed in the third trailer for Pokemon Scarlet and Violet is that Pokemon can now evolve in the overworld rather than only through the standard evolution screen, which has been a part of the series since Gen 1. This is an intriguing feature that adds to the immersion side of role-playing games by allowing players to develop their Pokemon in the wilds and even during a fight rather than having them use in-game menus outside of fights.
Furthermore, the Pokemon community has discovered that while learning new skills in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet, the pocket monsters will still have to complete a written prompt, but this too can be done in combat or in the overworld. In fact, Quaxly is attempting to learn Wing Attack while traveling around Paldea in a recent tweet from Centro Leaks. This may be completed during another action and does not necessitate players to stick on the moves menu like previous iterations.
The trailer also revealed Pokemon Scarlet and Violet's pre-order bonus, which is a free, otherwise unobtainable special Pokemon with a unique Tera type and move. It's worth noting that although learning new abilities will not require the use of the old menu, players will still need to utilize the in-game menus to manage battles and inventory.
