During the Pokemon Presents stream, Pokemon Scarlet and Violet is a new age for pocket creatures: Pokemon may now be transformed into shiny crystals. We also learned a little bit more about the game's special forms, called Terastallizing.
Terastal Pokemon are the next gimmick for Pokemon Sword and Shields Gigantamax Pokemon. Terastal Pokemon are basically gem stones, with diamonds adorning the creatures like crowns after battles. According to the Pokemon Company, players must recharge their Tera Orbs after battles.
The Pokemon Company teased in the new teaser how some Pokemon may change their appearance while Terastallizing Pikachu may become flying type with crystalized balloons overhead, for instance, if it has the appropriate Tera Type.
Tera Raid Battles are events in which players can fight and catch wild Terastal Pokemon; it is very similar to Sword and Shields Max Raid Battles.
Pokemon Scarlet and Violet will be released on Nintendo Switch on November 18th. Players who preorder the game will receive a special Pikachu that knows Fly because its Tera Type is flying.
