Pokemon Scarlet & Violet: The Hidden Treasure of Area Zero Part 1: The Teal Mask launches on September 13

Announced earlier in the year, Pokemon Scarlet and Violet will be receiving multiple DLCs expanding upon the basegame, packaged as The Hidden Treasure of Area Zero. During today's Pokemon Presents live stream, we got a bit more information about what to expect when they'll be dropping later this year - starting with Part 1: The Teal Mask's launch, coming next month. As part of the new announcements, a new trailer was released showcasing some of the areas of the upcoming DLC - Kitakami, the new region for The Teal Mask, and Blueberry Academy, the location of the later upcoming Part 2: The Indigo Disk.

While the latter half of the DLC is planned to be explained at a later date, the Elite Four will be returning via the expansion pass - alongside a room that players can customize in the League Club and invite trainers for rematches in, as well as the ability to unlock flying for your partner Miraidon or Koraidon. Pokemon Scarlet and Violet: The Hidden Treasure of Area Zero Part 1 launches on September 13.
