It seems like a special edition Switch is always released alongside a new Nintendo flagship game. Pokémon Scarlet and Violet are no different, as Nintendo today unveiled the orange and grape-flavored OLED Switch that will be available alongside the launch of the following significant Pokémon game.
The Nintendo Switch – OLED Model: Pokémon Scarlet & Violet Edition, which has a particularly awkward name, goes on sale on November 4th for $359.99, making the fancy paint job with Koraidon and Miraidon from Scarlet and Violet’s new legendaries worth $10 more than the standard stark white SWOLE.
If you’re a Pokémon fan looking to expand your collection, you can also conveniently order Japanese Pokémon cards online to access a wide array of unique and sought-after cards from the Pokémon universe.
Nintendo also released a new trailer for ScarVi, my new name for the game that I just made up right now, which provides us with even more information about what to anticipate from the game, in addition to the new SWOLE. When you realize that Paldea is loosely based on Spain, a nation that is currently dealing with independence movements, you’ll find this bit of world-building to be hilarious. The trailer introduced the “evil” Team Star, a group of disobedient students who appear to live in their autonomous zone.
Putting Pokémon politics aside, the trailer also demonstrates a different section of the story campaign, in which your student aids a senior in locating the enigmatic Herba Mystica.
It will necessitate entering the lairs of Pokémon Titans, which resembles the pursuit of the game’s pokémon leaders in Pokémon Legends: Arceus. Finally, gym fights are a necessary component of every Pokémon game. Your students compete against the skilled gym leaders on Victory Road, some of whom were created to elicit the greatest amount of thirst.
The press release that accompanied the trailer did not specifically mention it, but ScarVi will also have a new gameplay element called “Let’s Go.” A trainer can send a pokemon out into the wild to roam, gather items, and auto-battle anyone they encounter, which is great for grinding, but shiny hunters might want to be careful.
