Pokémon Scarlet and Violet Story DLC Expansions Announced
The Hidden Treasure of Area Zero DLC will be divided into two parts:
- The Teal Mask – Available in Fall 2023, follows players visiting a territory outside the Paldea region called Kitakami (very traditional Japan-like).
- The Indigo Disc – Available in Winter 2023, sees the player enroll in Blueberry Academy as an exchange student.
The Hidden Treasure of Area Zero DLC will bring new Legendary Pokemon and some returning favorites as well. The DLC will be available for pre-purchase “soon” on Nintendo eShop with a bonus for early buyers (available until October 31, 2023): a special Hisuian Zoroark that cannot be obtained through normal gameplay.
It was also revealed during the presentation that Pokémon Home will soon be able to connect to Scarlet and Violet, and there are even some bonuses that you will be able to get if you connect the game to Pokémon Go.
