Pokemon Scarlet & Violet will officially kick off Gen 9 when they’re released on Switch this year, and that means a whole bunch of new Pokemon to catch including Legendaries and three new starters.

Game Freak is quickly following up on the huge success of spin-off game Legends Arceus with the long-awaited ninth-generation titles, Pokemon Scarlet & Violet. The games will officially launch worldwide on November 18, 2022.

As with any new generation of Pokemon games, there will be a fresh Pokedex to discover. From adorable early-game creatures like Smoliv and Lechonk to Legendaries like Koraidon and Miraidon, there’s something for every trainer.
