The new trailer for the upcoming Pokémon Scarlet & Violet has revealed not only the 18th November release date for the upcoming pair of mainline Pokémon games, but also some new characters you'll be meeting along the way.
The trailer, which also revealed box art and Koraidon and Miraidon, the headlining Legendary Pokémon for the game, highlighted several new Pokémon and also two professors, Sada and Turo, as well as Nemona, a powerful Pokémon trainer and — presumably — your new rival.
First up, the profs:
Depending on the version of the game you play, you'll have either Professor Sada (Scarlet) or Professor Turo (Violet) conducting research in your region. Erm, hang on, that came out wrong. Ahem.
Moving on, there's your friend/rival Nemona. Here's how she's described on the official game page:
Your friend, Nemona, has a sunny and energetic disposition, and she absolutely loves Pokémon battles. She’s an experienced Pokémon Trainer and serves as a reliable guide for you on your adventures. She has undisputed skill in battle—though it does also seem that she’s not the best at throwing Poké Balls.
Early online impressions seem to be positive.
Which professor will you be choosing? Let us know below your thoughts on these new characters.
I choose Pokemon Violet for Professor Turo. 🥰
I will draw him in Chibi form once I can found his full body looking from internet.
Was literally about to say Professor Daddy and then saw that tweet.
On second thoughts, they’ve made the other professor hot as well. Might as well be Pokémon Bi and Pokémon Sexual at this rate.
Once again, they keep making Pokemon characters more and more attractive by the generation. It's magic I tell you.
Based on the designs of the legendaries and professors (Sada has bloody fangs for crying out loud), it seems the theme this time round is the past vs the future which could lead to some really cool ideas in terms of Pokemon and the region itself. I'm so damn excited dude.
I want to marry professor Turo. He looks a bit like Kit.
Professor daddy has me dying for how its the only tweet you attached haha.
@Fizza I'd say Nature VS Technology as the theme. But I understand where you're coming from with past/future.
Aaah, thank you. 😃
Now I can start to draw Professor Turo in Chibi version.
@Kiz3000 Ah, yeah, that definitely solidifies the past versus future theme.
Giga chad professor, good too know I wasn’t the only one thinking it lol!
@Mr_Fox Thanks, You are absolutely right, now I can't unsee him as Kit x)
The rival looks good ingame, but I wish her artwork was perhaps a little bit different, the first thing I think of when I see her artwork is Goh from the anime.
I'm not gonna lie, the new cavewoman professor is freaking hot! Boy... I really played too much Conker lately...
I really like the fact that the new Rival is fem presenting. I think that's a small, but important touch.
@nessisonett Pokemon said happy pride month
why are both professors so hot?
why Pokémon Company/Game Freak keep making the Pokémon professor hot? they are doing this since gen 5.
The Scarlet professor looks like she is related to Ayla from Chrono Trigger with her prehistoric design, aside her professor coat.
....oh and she got abs too.
So uh... What's the new controversy?
Trees are a given of course I mean the one specific to these games
The internet does not waste any time, lol.
But seriously, they are pretty hot. Giving ole Kakui a run for his money. I actually think Turo kinda looks like Chairman Rose and Peony's hotter younger brother or cousin
Looks like character’s eyes turn more human-like the older they are in Scarlet/Violet lol
I'm getting Ayla (Chrono Trigger) vibes from Professor Sada
@CharlieGirl Everyone is talking about the trainers but I feel like Nemona and her green hair has to be an homage to everyone's favorite girlfriend, and I mean everyone's, Ramona Flowers.
Came here for Pokemon news, got ENM memes, left feeling all funny inside.
The new characters are all awesome and look great.
Ok I was going to get Scarlet for myself & Violet for my husband but I think I need to have Professor DADDY in my game now. WOAH!!! Might have to switch.
Professor Sada is a total babe! 😍💞💕💖💓 That alone settles it! I'm getting Pokemon Scarlet! The main rival is an absolute hottie too! 💟💘
Like the look of both professors here as well as the new rival.
And like @Citano and @Axecon said, Sada gives away some cool vibes of Chrono Tigger's Ayla.
(Pa)Sada and (Fu)Turo - Past and Future
Ok, I dig it
If there’s one thing that everyone agrees on is that Pokémon are masters of making attractive characters.
I see the past and future theme naming, but it's sad they're breaking the plant theme.
Also time to check the usual sites...
Nemona seems like a mentor. That’s pretty cool.
50 shades of Pokemon
The dude literally looks like the chad meme lol
I’m here for professor daddy
I really don't get all the simping for them, haha. I DO like how Turo just looks like the chad meme. I'll still go Scarlet for the legendary, I couldn't care less which professor hands me my starters and then disappears for the rest of the adventure.
Now I'm torn... I had wanted violet but I'm not sure I want my professor to be wearing spandex all the time.
@Takoda I think the people doing the simping are just very young and a bit unrefined.
How can they keep making the professors hotter?! X/Y, sun/moon, and now these two! 😱❤️❤️
I love the art style used here, the designs look like they came out from MHA and show potential for expresiveness in-game
Funny enough, even Kit and Krysta say that themselves.
"...we like to think of them as partners in our journey to explore ethical non-monogamy." I read that in Professor Oak's voice, now I feel weird
