Pokémon Scarlet & Violet DLC Release Date Revealed with In-Depth Video

The Pokémon Scarlet & Violet The Hidden Treasure of Area Zero DLC reappeared during today’s August Pokémon Presents, revealing more footage of Part 1: The Teal Mask and Part 2: The Indigo Disc as well as a release date of September 13, 2023 for Part 1 on Nintendo Switch. The footage is essentially a tour of both add-on content packs before they finally flesh out last year’s mainline Pokémon experiences with more to do and more story content. Some highlights include mini-games that will see players popping balloons, an area that allows them to customize their Poké ball throwing style, and of course, some of the new monsters that players will encounter along the way. Of the new creatures revealed, the candy apple Pokémon, Dipplin, does their best to steal the show, but Duraludon’s evolution, Archaludon, looks like a worthy addition to the roster, too.

From small diversions to ambitious new areas, Pokémon Scarlet & Violet’s The Hidden Treasure of Area Zero DLC adds new activities for all kinds of trainers to enjoy. Part 2: The Indigo Disc, for example, includes Blueberry Academy, a giant location in the middle of the ocean that features four unique biomes for players to battle through. We’ll get to explore it all for ourselves with the add-on content finally launches next month. Until then, you can see all of the updates in today’s video breakdown (at 23:30) below.
