Pokémon Day 2023’s Pokémon Presents show has not disappointed, revealing more content for Pokémon Scarlet and Violet: The Hidden Treasure of Area Zero DLC will be released in two parts – The Teal Mask and The Indigo Disk – in Fall and Winter 2023.

The DLC will add new Pokémon and 230 existing creatures to the two games as they expand their horizon outside the Paldea region.

Pokémon Scarlet and Violet DLC.

Ogerpon and Terapagos, the two new Legendary Pokémon featured in the DLC.

In Part 1 you get to go on a school trip to the Kitakami region, “where a great mountain towers over the land and the people live at its base. It is a place of tranquil natural expanses, featuring rice paddies and apple orchards. The trip seems to coincide with a festival regularly held in the village in Kitakami during this season, so the village is bustling with various street vendors and stalls. Players will meet new friends and Pokémon as they unravel the mysteries behind the folktales that have been passed down in this land.​”

Part 1 includes the new Legendary Ogerpon as well as the three Pokémon Okidogi, Munkidori, and Fezandipiti, who are beloved as heroes by the region’s inhabitants.

Part 2 features the Legendary Terapagos as you embark to another academy as an exchange student.
