It’s a shower of good news that has just fallen on Pokemon Scarlet and Violet . The two proud representatives of 9G came by during the last Pokemon Direct to announce some very big surprises. A whole bunch of new features are expected during the year, including two expansions. The next big update was also mentioned.
Not one, but two big DLCs for Pokemon Scarlet and Violet
The arrival of a DLC was only rumors, but it is finally a reality. Pokemon Scarlet and Violet will indeed have the right to additional content. This new adventure, titled “ The Buried Treasure of Zone Zero ” will be divided into two parts. DLC 1: The Turquoise Mask will send us to discover a new area outside of Paldea, while DLC 2: The Indigo Disc will offer us a completely new experience.
Each of these two parts will offer no less than 230 new small monsters never seen before in Paldea, including two new legendary Ogerpon (in green) and Terapagos (in blue). The opportunity to expand your collection.
DLC 1: The Turquoise Mask – release fall 2023

You will be able to discover brand new environments such as wild plains, rice paddies, orchards, and even mountains. A large village will also be nestled at the foot of the reliefs where it will be possible to find many merchants. The opportunity to get your hands on unique objects. As a bonus, Pokemon Scarlet and Violet will take advantage of this first DLC to add 3 exclusive legendary Pokemon, in addition to Ogerpon. These are Félicanis, Fortusimia and Favianos (visible in the background on the image below). We don’t know much about them except that they will be very important for the locals of Septentria and that they will certainly have a role in our adventure.
