During this presentation, we got to see more of Koraidon and Miraidon, the Legendary Pokémon that will join you on your adventure through the Paldea region in Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet. In these eagerly-awaited open-world RPGs, you’ll take on the role of a student at a prestigious academy. There, you’ll meet many new friends and embark on a Treasure Hunt to discover three grand stories—one of which includes the traditional Pokémon journey of challenging eight Pokémon Gyms with the aim of becoming a Champion.
There are plenty of new Pokémon to be found in the Paldea region, including a regional form of Wooper.

You’ll be able to catch Pokémon with rare Tera Types by taking part in Tera Raid Battles with up to three other Trainers.
