—A Pokemon That Lives with Humans
This Pokémon has lived in many households in the Paldea region since ancient times. It has a mild disposition, and people riding Cyclizar are a very common sight. It appears Cyclizar don’t mind being ridden because the warmth of a rider helps stave off the cold.
—A Body Optimized for Running
Cyclizar can sprint at over 70 mph while carrying a human. Its extremely hard head and thick, lithe tail are not only useful for maintaining balance and absorbing shocks while sprinting—they also provide effective ways to attack during battles.
—A New Move: Shed Tail
The user creates a substitute for itself using its own HP before switching places with a party Pokémon in waiting.
■ Battle with Pokemon Trainers from All over the World in the Battle Stadium
Ranked Battles, which players have had the chance to enjoy in Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield, will be returning in Pokemon Scarlet and Pokemon Violet. Players will also be able to take on battles in modes like Casual Battles and Online Competitions as well.
Terastallizing is a phenomenon in the Paldea region that makes Pokemon shine and glimmer like gems. The primary feature of Terastallizing in battle is that it changes a Pokemon’s type to its Tera Type. Pokemon don’t outwardly show what their Tera Type is until they Terastallize—a fact that players can use to take opponents by surprise in battle.
Tera Blast is a Normal-type move that can be learned with a TM. When used by a Terastallized Pokemon, it becomes a move of the same type as the Pokemon’s Tera Type. Tera Blast inflicts damage using the Attack or Sp. Atk stat—whichever is higher for the user.
- Mirror Herb – This herb will allow the holder to mirror an opponent’s stat increases and boost its own stats–but only once.
- Covert Cloak – This hooded cloak conceals the holder, protecting it from the additional effects of moves.
- Loaded Dice – If a Pokemon holding this item uses a multistrike move, that move will be more likely to hit more times.
Pokemon Scarlet and Pokemon Violet are due out for Switch on November 18.
