Pokemon Scarlet and Violet unveil Ms. Geeta, Brassius, Team Star, Auto Battles, and new Pokemon Armarouge, Ceruledge, & Klawf

The Pokemon Company introduces more new details on the upcoming Pokemon Scarlet and Pokemon Violet. This time, they pulled back the curtain on what the Treasure Hunt study project entails at Naranja/Uva Academy when players attend it in the game.

In a new trailer, players will venture to a place called Starfall Street where the rebellious Team Star resides. They are comprised of multiple squads led by their own boss and their designs will be different between the Scarlet and Violet versions. As players make their way through each of Team Star's bases, they will be sending a plethora of Pokemon at them and they will have to defeat a certain amount of them in a set period of time to challenge the boss of each squad.

To complete the task in a timely manner, people can utilize the new "Let's Go!" feature to order Pokemon off in a specific direction. As they act independetly during that time, the Pokemon will pick up items on their own and automatically engage in combat through Auto Battles. Pokemon will pick a fight on any hostile opponent they encounter and players can look over them or take care of other tasks in the mean time; Pokemon will earn experience points on their own after successful Auto Battles.

The boss of Team Star's Fire Crew, Mela, was also revealed. She stands a top a gigantic vehicle in her showdown with players.

Another activity that players can engage in the Treasure Hunt is helping Arven find the rare Herba Mystica, which are ingredients that supposedly restore health upon consumption. Collecting them is no easy task because special Titan Pokemon guard the; they are bigger and stronger than ordinary Pokemon. People are called upon to help Arven out because he isn't so great at Pokemon battles.

Of course, players will take on Gym Leaders as well. People are introduced to the chairwoman of the Pokemon League, Geeta, before they head down the Victory Road path. One of the Gym Leaders that players will run across is Brassius, the Gym Leader of the Artazon Gym. He specializes in Grass-type Pokemon.

Pokemon Scarlet and Pokemon Violet release on November 18 worldwide for the Nintendo Switch.

Watch the new trailer down below, along with more descriptions from the official website, and screenshots of all the new information shared today.

Your Own Story, Woven Through Your Treasure Hunt

The school that you’ve enrolled in hosts a special independent study project. The theme of this assignment is “A Treasure Hunt.” Explore the world and seek out your very own treasure!

Three stories will be woven into your adventure while traversing the sprawling Paldea region. Along Victory Road, you will go to Gyms in different locations in order to to achieve Champion Rank. On the Path of Legends, you can join Arven in search of rare ingredients. And in Starfall Street, you’ll challenge Team Star, a group of delinquents causing trouble for the school.

These stories are set in an open world, so where you go is all up to you. A world teeming with Pokémon and people to meet is waiting for you—traverse the Paldea region wherever you heart desires.

Victory Road—Your Path to Champion Rank


There are eight Pokémon Gyms in different locations throughout Paldea, all managed by the Pokémon League. If a Trainer makes their way to the Gyms, defeats all of the Gym Leaders, and then passes the Champion Assessment at the Pokémon League headquarters, they can earn the coveted Champion Rank.

After accepting Nemona’s suggestion to become a Champion-ranked Trainer, you too will be able to visit the eight Pokémon Gyms scattered across the region.

The First Trial of the Gyms: The Gym Test

At a Pokémon Gym, you must first pass a Gym Test before you’ll be allowed to challenge the Gym Leader.

The contents of these Gym Tests are unique to each Gym, but through them, you might come to learn more about the customs and unique features of each city and town, as well as what kind of people the Gym Leaders are.​

Ms. Geeta, Chairwoman of the Pokémon League


Geeta is the chairwoman of the Pokémon League, which operates Paldea’s Pokémon Gyms. Among the region’s Champions, she reigns supreme as the most skilled Trainer of all.

Though mild-mannered, Geeta still has a commanding presence, and it’s said that anyone who calls themselves a Pokémon Trainer looks up to her.

It appears that she is looking for exceptional young talents capable of conquering the Pokémon League.

Brassius, Gym Leader of the Artazon Gym


Brassius is the Gym Leader of Artazon, a town that’s alive with flowers and art. He specializes in using Grass-type Pokémon and is known as the Verdant Virtuoso.

Gym Leader Brassius treats Pokémon battles as works of art and is always in search of artistic quality, using his Gym Test to help judge a Trainer’s aesthetic sensibilities.

His pièce de résistance, “Surrendering Sunflora,” is a statue installation depicting adorable Sunflora with somber expressions. Just what these Sunflora are surrendering to is a topic of debate among connoiseurs.

Search for Herba Mystica on the Path of Legends


Arven’s research into healthy recipes for Pokémon has led him to seek out rare ingredients called Herba Mystica, which are said to immediately restore health once eaten.

Herba Mystica are extremely rare herbs that can only be found in Paldea. They are guarded by Titan Pokémon, which are bigger and stronger than ordinary Pokémon—making these rare herbs even more difficult to obtain. What's more, a number of these Titan Pokémon have already been sighted in the region.

Since Arven isn’t good at Pokémon battles, he’ll be asking you to help him out—and will even offer to treat you to some of his hand-made dishes if the two of you succeed in obtaining these rare herbs. Drive back tough opponents and gather the Herba Mystica together with Arven!

Face Off Against the School’s Troublemakers in Starfall Street


Team Star was formed by the school’s most rebellious students and is made up of several squads. Each squad is led by its own boss, each with their own base scattered across the Paldea region. These class-cutting delinquents cause trouble for all those around them, giving the academy’s students and teachers a hard time by disturbing the peace and using pushy recruitment tactics.

March up to their bases and face off against the troublemaking Team Star!

Make Your Way into Team Star’s Bases to Take Down Their Bosses!

When you go to take on each squad’s base, Team Star’s many grunts will send out a relentless barrage of Pokémon to get in your way. By defeating enough of the grunts’ Pokémon within a given time limit, you’ll be able to challenge their boss to a battle.

Engage in Auto Battles—a convenient feature that’s new to these titles—to overcome the unending barrage of Team Star’s grunts and their Pokémon!

NOTE The uniforms worn by the members of Team Star will differ depending on the version of the game you play.

Take on the Bosses Riding Their Starmobiles

Once you overcome the waves of Team Star Grunts, their boss will appear in a custom car called the Starmobile. It seems that during your Pokémon battles with these bosses, the Starmobile itself will get in your way. Take down each squad’s boss by defeating their party Pokémon and their Starmobiles!

Mela, Boss of the Schedar Squad (AKA Team Star’s Fire crew)


Mela is the boss of Team Star’s Fire crew, the Schedar Squad. As the team’s best all-rounder, Mela fixes any and every problem thrown her way, though her methods are heavy-handed. She leaves a forceful and gruff impression, but her steadfast devotion to completing anything she puts her mind to has earned her the trust of her teammates.

NOTE The uniforms worn by the members of Team Star will differ depending on the version of the game you play.

Let’s Go! A Handy Feature for Exploring the Paldea Region

Tell Your Pokémon to Go Adventure!

You can have one Pokémon out and walking with you in the Paldea region’s great outdoors. When you have a Pokémon exploring with you in the field, you can use the “Let’s Go!” feature to send that Pokémon off in the direction you indicate. The Pokémon you send out then independently picks up items in the area and even has Auto Battles with nearby Pokémon.

What Are Auto Battles?

Auto Battles are a new way of battling that can be activated by using the “Let’s Go!” feature. Doing so will send out a Pokémon to battle wild Pokémon without needing orders from its Trainer. Your Pokémon can be sent into an Auto Battle against any wild Pokémon you see on the field, and it can even find Pokémon to engage in Auto Battles on its own.​

When your Pokémon is out and engaging in Auto Battles, you can do what you want—stay by its side to watch over it, or try looking for items nearby. By defeating wild Pokémon in Auto Battles, your Pokémon can also earn items and Exp. Points!

Master using this new feature to explore every nook and cranny of the vast Paldea region with your Pokémon!
