The Pokemon Company and developer Game Freak have revealed a new 15-minute trailer for Pokemon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet, alongside new details for the game, including a new Pokemon called Farigiraf, the picnic mechanic, TMs, and more. Pokemon Scarlet and Pokemon Violet will launch on November 18 for Nintendo Switch.
The new details via the publisher can be seen below:
Jump into a Paldean Journey
Take a peek at some of the adventures you’ll find throughout the open world of Paldea!
Make the Perfect Profile!
The profile app is where you can see what you’ve achieved during your adventures, such as how many badges you’ve gathered, how far along you are with completing the Pokedex, and even the number of sandwich recipes you’ve discovered!
It also shows the Pokemon you’re currently traveling with, and you can set a profile picture using just the right combination of outfits, hairstyles, poses, and filters as well! Try making a profile that’s uniquely “you”!
By selecting Hide Info from your Adventure Records, you can view your profile photo in its entirety.
Introducing the TM Machine, a Handy Device That Can Make TMs!
A Technical Machine (or TM for short) is a tool that allows Pokemon to learn new moves. In these titles, there is a piece of equipment installed at every Pokemon Center called a TM Machine, which allows Trainers to make their own TMs.
TMs can be made using League Points (LP for short) and materials dropped by wild Pokemon after battle. LP can be obtained as you advance the story or by trading in materials from Pokemon. Find moves you want your Pokemon to learn at the TM Machine and try making a TM!
The selection of TMs available for you to make grows as you continue your adventure. A single TM can only be used once, but if you have enough LP and the right materials from Pokemon, you can make as many as you like using the TM Machine. Think carefully about what moves you want to have your Pokemon learn to expand your strategic arsenal.
You can have picnics almost anywhere when out exploring the region’s vast wildernesses. Picnics allow you to spend leisure time with your Pokemon, and you can change the designs of the tablecloth, cups, water bottles, and other picnic items to create an arrangement of your liking.
When you start a picnic, your party Pokemon, as well as the Legendary Pokemon accompanying you—either Koraidon or Miraidon—will come out and gather around.
You can choose your favorite filters and take photos during picnics or while you’re out exploring. Filters are a great way to add a trendy flair to your photos.

Pokemon Scarlet and Violet
—The Head of Its Main Body and the Head on Its Tail Combined!
As a result of its Evolution, the head of its main body and the head from its tail have become one. Both of Farigiraf’s brains are connected through thick nerves, increasing its psychic energy, and it can emit psychic waves from the antennae on its head. It’s always mindful of its surroundings, and while it can detect danger in an instant, there are times when its body cannot react as fast as its two brains can think.
—The Head from Its Tail Is Equipped for Both Offense and Defense
The thick, sturdy head from its tail provides good defense for the head of the main body. When the head from its tail closes its mouth, Farigiraf whips its long neck around in an attack that deals brutal physical damage. The force of this attack is said to be able to pulverize stone and crush steel beams.
—New Ability: Cud Chew
Farigiraf’s Ability, Cud Chew, is a new Ability appearing for the first time in these titles. When a Pokemon with this Ability eats a Berry, it will eat it one more time at the end of the next turn.
—New Ability: Armor Tail
Farigiraf’s Ability, Armor Tail, is another new Ability appearing for the first time in these titles. It makes opposing Pokemon unable to use priority moves.
