Details of all the announcements made today follow:
Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Purple
Developed by GAME FREAK Inc., Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet take the next step in the evolution of the main Pokémon series. Trainers can explore an open world where various borderless towns blend seamlessly into the wilderness. Pokémon can be seen everywhere in this wide-open world – in the skies, in the sea, and on the streets.
As one of the main characters, trainers will dive into the world of Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violetto to begin their adventure, where they will have a different outfit depending on the game they are playing. Trainers will then choose either Sprigatito, the Grass Cat Pokémon, Fuecoco, the Fire Croc Pokémon, or Quaxly, the Duckling Pokémon to be their first partner Pokémon before setting off on their journey.

After their release, Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet will be able to partner with Pokemon HOUSE, a service that allows Trainers to keep their entire Pokémon collection in one place.
