During the closing ceremonies for the 2022 Pokémon World Championships a new game play trailer for the upcoming games Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet was revealed.
Online battles and Ranked Battles will return in Scarlet and Violet with all the same formats previously seen in Pokémon Sword and Shield.
This Dragon/Normal-type appears to be the pre-evolution to Koraidon and Miraidon in a manner similar to how Cosmog in Pokémon Sun and Moon evolved into Solgaleo and Lunala. Cyclizar has a new ability called Shed Tail. This ability lets Cyclizar shed its tail and creates a substitute while swapping out with another Pokémon on the team so the teammate switches in with a substitute already set up.
The trailer shows a new item called Mirror Herb that activates when an opponent gets a stat boost and copies that boost.
Another new hold item called Loaded Dice which increases the likelihood of multi-hit attacks like Bullet Seed hitting more times in a row.
The new item Covert Cloak is a hold item that prevents the secondary effects of opponents attacks from activating, for example the Filching effect from the move Fake Out won’t activate.
The new move Tera Blast is a Normal type attack that changes type when to match a Pokémon’s Type when terastalized. The move can be a physical or a special attack based on which attacking stat is higher on the Pokémon using it.
The location for the 2023 Pokémon World Championships has been revealed as Yokohama Japan.
