The Pokemon Company and developer Game Freak have released new information, video, and screenshots for Pokemon Scarlet and Pokemon Violet downloadable content “The Hidden Treasure of Area Zero Part 2: The Indigo Disk,” which is due out on December 14. Today’s update introduces the Syncro Machine, the power of flight, and legendary Pokemon encounters.
Get the details below.
The Synchro Machine
Once players progress far enough in their adventure in “The Hidden Treasure of Area Zero Part 2: The Indigo Disk,” they’ll be able to use a device called the Synchro Machine to see the world through the eyes of their Pokemon. While synchronized with one of their Pokemon, they can move around and battle wild Pokemon—a fresh new way to play the game. It appears that this device is still a prototype. Players can use it once they’ve helped a scientist in the Terarium with her research.
The Power of Flight
The Legendary Pokemon Koraidon or Miraidon will gain the power to fly for the first time when Trainers take on the Elite Trial set by Amarys of the BB League Elite Four. While this power is at first believed to be only temporarily imparted, it can apparently be made permanent, allowing Koraidon and Miraidon to fly at any time—but only once players have made it far enough in their adventure. Trainers will be able to fly wherever they please with their Legendary Pokemon and enjoy the sense of freedom that only an open world can provide.
After completing the main story of “The Hidden Treasure of Area Zero Part 2: The Indigo Disk,” Trainers can meet a curious character named Snacksworth at Blueberry Academy. By completing Blueberry Quests (BBQs) in the Terarium, Trainers can earn snacks from Snacksworth that will allow them to encounter certain Legendary Pokemon from throughout the series back in the Paldea region. He’ll also share his extensive knowledge about these Pokemon with Trainers—as well as tall tales of his own heroic encounters with them.
Pokemon Scarlet and Pokemon Violet are available now for Switch.
