Welcome to the Paldea region!
Adventure awaits in the Paldea region, a sprawling land of vast open spaces dotted with lakes, towering peaks, wastelands and perilous mountain ranges.
Go freely back and forth between three grand stories as you follow your own path. Beat the eight Gyms spread across the region – in any order – to prove your strength and aim for the Champion Rank!
Enrol at the prestigious academy located in the heart of the Paldea region and study alongside Pokémon. Here you’ll be given a special independent study project known as the “Treasure Hunt”, a grand excursion to hone your skills as a Pokémon Trainer!
Let’s meet some of the friends and teachers who’ll aid your studies.
Your friend Nemona is sunny, energetic and absolutely loves Pokémon battles! As an experienced Pokémon Trainer, she’ll serve as a reliable guide on your journey.
Professor Turo is carrying out research into certain lore passed down in the region…
Your classmate Penny is rather shy and doesn’t come to the academy very often, but you can’t fail to spot her thanks to the fluffy Eevee bag she carries on her back!
The academy’s director Clavell is strict, but kind, and will teach you many things about your new school.
Senior student Arven is good at cooking and is researching recipes to help Pokémon feel better, but he needs your help when it comes to battling!
Your homeroom teacher Mr. Jacq is very knowledgeable about Pokémon biology, though he sometimes loses himself in his research.
The academy has different kinds of uniforms, ranging from short sleeves to warm blazers. Customise your Trainer’s eyes, mouth, hairstyle and eyebrows, and collect a wide variety of accessories to express your own unique style!
Meet new Pokémon
Choose your first partner Pokémon from Sprigatito, Fuecoco, and Quaxly. Which Pokémon will you start with?
Category: Grass Cat Pokémon
Capricious and attention seeking, it may sulk if it sees its Trainer giving attention to a Pokémon other than itself.
Category: Fire Croc Pokémon
Fuecoco is laid-back and does things at its own pace. It loves to eat, and it will sprint towards any food it finds with a glint in its eye.
Category: Duckling Pokémon
This serious-mannered Pokémon will follow in its Trainer’s wake. It’s tidy, and it especially dislikes getting its head dirty.
The Paldea region is home to many other new Pokémon, including Paldean forms of Pokémon you may have encountered in previous Pokémon adventures.
Legendary modes of transport
You’ll encounter Koraidon in Pokémon Scarlet and Miraidon in Pokémon Violet. These Legendary Pokémon are shrouded in mystery and are said to have powers that far surpass that of other Pokémon.
Koraidon and Miraidon can change their forms to better suit the terrain. Ride these Legendary Pokémon to traverse the expansive Paldea region and explore every nook and cranny.
Traverse the expansive Paldea region more freely and at full speed!
Approach Pokémon in rivers, lakes and oceans or cross perilous waters in a snap!
Jump from mountains or tall buildings and glide towards your destination!
Add some shine to battles!
The Terastal phenomenon is found only in the Paldea region and makes Pokémon shine and glimmer like gems. Terastallize a Pokémon at strategic moments during battles to activate its Tera Type, increasing the power of moves that have the same type as your Pokémon’s Tera Type and changing your Pokémon’s weaknesses!
Team up with three other Trainers in Tera Raid Battles, where you take on a Terastallized wild Pokémon within a time limit. Attack seamlessly without waiting for other Trainers’ turns and cheer on ally Pokémon to boost their stats!
Enjoy Pokémon with friends
Share the joy of discovery as you and up to three other Trainers explore the Paldea region together in local or online co-op! Spend time with your friends, cheering each other on in wild Pokémon battles and showing off the Pokémon that walk along with you.
Use the Poké Portal to trade and battle with Trainers all over the world! Find your favourite Pokémon, complete the Pokédex and hone your skills against online rivals at the Battle Stadium.
