Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Purple are the future games of the ninth generation
Pokemon Scarlet and Purple Impressions
It could be said that the Spanish and Portuguese we are about to fulfill a dreamsince since in the fifth generation the saga of Pokémon left behind the Japanese regions as inspiration to create the different territories that we would go through in his games, many look forward to having the fortune that your country is chosen to serve as the basis for the new region, this being something that with Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Purple will finally be fulfilled thanks to Paldea, the region based on Spain and Portugal. Given this, it should be noted that there are many desires that we have to discover what mysteries will be in this ninth generation, since, for example, there will be three different stories, which we can complete in the order we want, but (almost certainly) with the corresponding limitations on the map that one might expect (for example, an area full of High level Pokémon near the last gym leader). In any case, on this occasion I am not here to tell you about what you already know about Pokemon Scarlet and Purplebut from my personal experience with these titles since, a little less than a month after their launch, I have been lucky enough to being able to play an hour of a preliminary version of these gamesspecifically the version starring Koraidon which is obviously the superior (fact, not opinion). And it is just at this point that I have to fulfill my mission in exchange for this lucky hour by telling you not so much the content that I saw, but rather the experience that was living ithaving to anticipate that I could see some of the Confirmed Pokémon of the ninth generationas well as the recently announced Bellibolt. Be that as it may, it’s time to talk about me visit to Paldea.
Touring the Paldea region on the back of Koraidon
Paldea, a great region to explore
To begin with, it should be noted that, although I did not have access to the entire map, this first contact in Paldea It has helped me to see the potential it has, since far from being an esplanadeit has been possible to see that the region presents different levels that are going to make it very necessary to have the Koraidon and Miraidon Pokémontuta in order to explore everything, to which it is necessary to add that I had access to all the forms of these Pokémon. In fact, one of the main attractions that I had during my experience with the game is something that I appreciate a lot in each Pokémon title, but in this one in particular grows on a large scalesince, despite having the option to complete the three available game stories, my desire was to explore the world, thus giving rise to the fact that he has been able to meet all kinds of Pokémon creatures. And this is something that is fueled not only by my innate curiosity, but also by the map designsince it does not stop showing us different elements and horizons that show a good level design that has left me fascinated in this first contact. And in that sense I have to say that I’m very bad at learning the open world map, being necessary to constantly open the menu to know where I am in many cases. Nevertheless, that has not happened to me in Paldea.
Bellibolt is one of the new Pokémon from Scarlet and Purple.
all kinds of creatures
However, I do have to say that part of the potential of Paldea I have found it in his creatures, that is, in the own pokemonwhich have evolved from the version seen in Pokémon Sword and Shield by having better animations that make them look much more alive and dynamic, as well as integrated into their environment, although all this knowing that this was not a definitive version of the game. In fact, my desire to capture everything that moves It is something that the title seems to encourage a lot, bringing out that characteristic aspect of collecting that has gone further with Pokémon GO and Pokémon Legends Arceus and that, although it is not as dynamic in these titles with the return to turn-based combat yes or yes, the truth is that it ends up doing it better than the main titles of the eight generations previous. Also, I was able to enjoy a team made up of several new generation Pokémon, being so that it has already been possible to see the potential that some have in the face of combat. However, I think this should not be dealt with yet, so I will leave it for later.
Mela is one of the leaders of Team Star
Three stories to live
On the other hand, we must deal with the fact that this version gave us access to the three stories that will make up the title in terms of its plots, that is, Gyms, Team Star, and Dominant Pokémon. I would like to say that he can play everything, but he only gave me time for the first two, so everything related to the Dominant Pokémon you will have to see it in the texts or videos of my fellow travelers. In any case, it is already known that in this case we will have to face three stories which we can complete in the order we want, although, naturally, there will be an order to follow, even if it is indirect. Thus, in this case we were able to face the first gym leaderwhich boasts a curious minigame which makes facing the challenge more entertaining, although the combat was somewhat easy in part due to the level of my team (almost ten levels higher). For his part, the Team Star I was able to test it almost out of the corner of my eye due to the time limit, but with this adventure I have been able to see that the operation brings us closer to what was seen in Pokémon Legends Arceus when fighting, having a great relevance the option of send pokemon. I can’t speak about the outcome since I didn’t come close, but I know appreciates that it is a different challenge to the leaderssince it gives it its own personality.
A Teraincursion into Scarlet and Purple Pokémon
Tera raids and multiplayer
Finally it’s time to talk about the terraincursioneswhich although at first it might seem that they were going to be very easy because you can attack without having to wait for the others, the truth is that they have ended up being a curious challenge because the time limit always works against us as well as the Pokémon to capture are very powerful. This means that at the slightest mistake we can end up knocked out, which means that time goes down faster, thus being an extra challenge to the Sword and Shield incursions, but with which you have to be very careful, since if someone with the desire to troll enters the team, we can see ourselves in more than one jam. Also, despite being an initial version, I can only applaud what I have seen with the multiplayersince up to four people were able to play on the same map without too many complications, even being curious how we helped and annoyed each other when it came to capturing Pokémon. This option will give a lot to talk about. Other than that, I can only mention that Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Purple will be released on November 18 for Nintendo Switchbeing so that by that time I hope to have a more elaborate text in which I tell you all they have to offer with the final version of the game. Until then, stay tuned for all the news that they arise.
