9 Things We Want From Pokemon Scarlet & Violet

Pokemon Scarlet & Violet are sure to bring a bunch of new changes to the classic Pokemon formula. Here are 9 things we would love to see in the upcoming Gen 9 games.

Pokemon Scarlet & Violet is officially revealed. We know very little about the games except for the three new starters. That won’t stop us from speculating and breaking down all the things we’d like to see in a new Pokemon game. In this video, we’ve got 9 big things we want to see, some of them pretty plausible while others may be a bit of a reach. That won’t stop us from dreaming!

Pokemon Legends: Arceus has an excellent blueprint that Scarlet & Violet will hopefully pull from, but significant improvements should be made, especially on a visual level. Beyond that, we go into a desire for references to older Gen games, a content-packed end game with plenty of depth and more quality of life improvements, such as the return of Secret Bases!

Pokemon Scarlet & Violet doesn’t have a release date yet but is slated to come out late in 2022. If you have anything you want to see from Gen 9, leave your thoughts in the comments below. Check out our guides and videos on our channel or for all else Pokemon.
