The Pokemon Presents on August 3rd introduced the new Terastal forms and features, new regional forms and Pokemon, new forms for Koraidon and Miraidon, and more!
List of Contents
The new Terastal feature is the latest in a line of Pokemon battle gimmicks, similar to Dynamax which appeared in Pokemon Sword and Shield.
Similar to Dynamax, Terastallizing allows Pokemon to change form in the middle of battle. Instead of increasing HP and using Max moves, Terastal Pokemon can gain a new type and have increased power for moves of the associated type.
The Raid Battle system from Pokemon Sword and Shield is back as new and improved Tera Raid Battles. Unlike the strict turn-by-turn playstyle of the previous generation, Tera Raid Battles allow players to choose their actions without waiting for each others' turns.
The name of the main stage of Scarlet and Violet, the Paldea Region, has finally been revealed together with a gorgeous map of the region.
Along with the name of the Paldea Region, Regional Variants have been confirmed to return to Pokemon Scarlet and Violet with a new Poison/Ground-type Wooper making his appearance!
|More New Pokemon|
The Fairy-type Fidough, and the Ice-type Cetitan are two of the newest revealed Pokemon for Pokemon Scarlet and Violet!
Koraidon and Miraidon have finally been shown in their true glory, rolling on two wheels across the plains and mountains of Paldea. Each of the Bike Forms has various builds allowing them to traverse each of the various climates found in the region!
New light was shed on the open world nature of the game; not only can players approach the Gyms in any order, there are two other main stories, allowing players to choose to eschew Gyms and take on each of the three stories in any order they wish.
The cast of characters has ballooned with a host of new faces from the academy which the player character attends.
|Pokemon Scarlet||Pokemon Violet|
|Larvitar, Stonjourner||Bagon, Eiscue|
Version Exclusive Pokemon have also been confirmed for Scarlet and Violet, with Larvitar and Stonjourner appearing in Pokemon Scarlet, and Bagon and Eiscue appearing in Pokemon Violet.

The first and second trailers have followed closely in the footsteps of the trailers for Pokemon Sword and Shield in both release dates and contents revealed. Based on this pattern, it's likely that we'll get similar info in the third Scarlet and Violet trailer to that shown in the trailer above.
We're likely to get our first glimpse of new regional forms in the third trailer. Surprisingly, the name of the region itself still has not been announced, so we think this is a good time for both of these to be revealed in one go.
As Morpeko was revealed in the third Sword and Shield trailer, we're expecting to get a look at a few new Pokemon, and perhaps one with a gimmick following in Morpeko's footsteps.
Although Nemona was already revealed in the second trailer, she seems to be more of a friend than a true threat. It's possible that we'll see a more menacing rival emerge this time around.
We still haven't gotten a look at a villainous team like Team Rocket in Scarlet and Violet yet. After the comical Team Yell downplayed the focus in the story on the villain team in Sword and Shield, it's possible that this aspect will be removed altogether in Scarlet and Violet, but it's also possible that a resurgence in their role is around the corner.
What do you think is waiting in the third trailer? Let us know in the comments!
