During the new trailer for Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, it was revealed that the games will once again feature a new villainous team in the form of 'Team Star', which consists of the in-game schools' "most rebellious students" and will be made up of several squads.

Each squad will be headed up by a unique boss character, with the team's bases dotted around the game's Paldea region, so it'll be up to you to determine which one you tackle first. As you head into the bases, Team Star will send out a barrage of Pokémon to stop you in your tracks, but you'll be able to make use of the game's new auto-battling system to dispatch these and head to the big honcho.

When you reach the boss, you'll go face-to-face with them in a battle, but there's a twist - each boss will come equipped with their own 'Starmobile', a huge car that they will use in conjunction with their Pokémon to take you down. One of the characters revealed in the trailer is called Mela, who is the head of Team Star's fire crew, the Schedar Squad. She is described as the team's "best all-rounder" and utilises methods that may be a tad heavy-handed. We can't wait to find out more!

Pokémon Scarlet and Violet itself launch on November 18th and can be pre-ordered right now.
