Why It’s Such a Big Deal That ‘Pokémon Scarlet’ and ‘Violet’ Are True Open-World Games

The three starters from Pokémon Scarlet / Violet: Sprigatito, Quaxly, and Fuecoco

There are a number of ways in which Pokémon Scarlet and Violet will break ground for one of the most beloved gaming series out there. Pokémon Centers will be available as outdoor kiosks you can waltz right up to. For the first time ever, your professor will differ depending on which game you buy. The legendaries might be available significantly earlier on in the game than usual, because they are literally motorcycles. There’s also a chance the games will take Pokémon Legends: Arceus‘s approach to wild Pokémon, making the flow of action significantly more streamlined. But the biggest evolution for the series, without a doubt, is that it will be Pokémon’s first-ever bonafide open-world game.

This was confirmed in the second gameplay trailer for Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, and subsequently by Pokémon’s official UK Twitter channel. Hell, they called it an “unbound adventure.” The entirety of the new region, Paldea, will be available for you to explore from the get-go. In addition, players can elect to challenge the game’s eight gyms in any order they please. There will be two other mainline stories to the game, as well. We don’t know much about those yet, but it seems like you’ll be able to pick what order you want to approach tasks in.
