Are you curious about upcoming Pokémon games? Us too! That’s why we want to create this (regularly updated) list of anything that we know of.
It should come as absolutely no surprise that we are giant Pokémon Stans here at Retro Dodo.
For all you boomers who don’t understand the modern lingo, that means we are obsessed. And if you do not know what a boomer is, you probably are one.
For reals though… most of the Dodo Team are pretty into Pokémon.
We have made it our personal and professional duty to keep an eye on all things Pokémon, especially any new exciting games on the horizon.
So for the good of the community… here is the list of all upcoming Pokémon games (that we know of):
[Last Updated in July 2022]
Pokémon Scarlet and Violet (Release Date: November 18, 2022)
The first installments in the ninth generation of Pokémon video games is due to be released in November 2022.
Yes, after literally 100+ Pokémon titles, we are now entering phase nine of the franchise.
The Scarlet and Violet entries were introduced to fans at the Pokémon Presents presentation on February 27, 2022.
So what do we know about the games so far?
Well, they are set in open worlds that should cover both urban and nature areas.
It will be a full 3d adventure, much like Pokémon Sword and Shield or Pokémon Legends: Arceus.
Obviously… you’re gonna get a ton of Pokémon to encounter.
We were already introduced to the three new Starter Pokémon: Sprigatito, Fuecoco, and Quaxly; and the two new Legendary Pokémon: Koraidon and Miraidon.
Toby Fox, who is best known for creating Undertale and Deltarune (we have an awesome list of the Best Undertale Fan Games) has also confirmed that he has contributed to the Scarlet/Violet soundtrack.
It is also known that this will be the first entry in the Pokémon franchise to have four player co-op play.
More information can be seen at the Official Pokémon Scarlet and Violet website.
