Taking place in the Paldea region, players will set out on a new adventure with one of three new starter Pokémon: the grass-type cat Sprigatito, the fire-type crocodile Fuecoco, and my personal favourite, the water-type Quaxly. He has hair shaped like a captain's hat and everything. 

The standard RRP for Pokémon Scarlet and Violet is £49.99 so this is a decent £10 saving that's well worth considering. After all, Nintendo games often go up in price over time rather than down.

Anyone that takes up Pokémon Violet will be able to utilise Miraidon, another legendary Pokémon that will offer the same travel benefits as Koraidon. Like every Pokémon game there will also be slight differences and Pokémon to catch, so choose wisely.  

Why get Pokémon Scarlet and Violet today

While The Pokémon Company might certainly have its issues, I haven't been as excited for a new Pokémon like this in a long time. A big part of this is all down to the major changes spurred on by Pokémon Legends: Arceus and how its open-world formula is being adapted to Pokémon Scarlet and Violet. 

Not only this but Pokémon trainers will be able to take part in four-player cooperative play and journey through three different stories, including the familiar Pokémon Gym battles that have been a staple of the series for over 25 years. It's an exciting evolution that is long overdue. I can't wait to dive into the game over the Christmas period.
