Pokemon Scarlet and Violet will be introducing a fair amount of new Pokemon to the franchise, but they'll also feature many returning Pokemon as well. Returning Pokemon inPokemon Scarlet and Violet hail from every generation in the franchise, and fans can expect hundreds of them to collect once the new games launch later this year.
Through the three new Pokemon Scarlet and Violet trailers, no one involved with Pokemon Scarlet or Violet has revealed a list of returning Pokemon in the games, although fans know of at least some of the games' returning Pokemon. One such Pokemon is Generation 5's Eelektross.
Eelektross is a Pokemon of the Electric type, which evolved from Eelektrik when using a Thunder Stone. However, Eelektross has been depicted as floating in air since Pokemon X and Y, and has undergone a significant transformation in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet.
The latest Pokemon Scarlet and Violet gameplay teaser gives players a brief look at Eelektross in the new games. To the delight of Generation 5 Pokemon enthusiasts, Eelektross in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet appears to be in its original, standing condition in the new games. As at the time of writing, the tweet had over 14,000 likes.
The majority of fans are pleased with Eelektross' original appearance, and it will be interesting to see if any modifications are made to how the other returning Pokemon in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet are presented. Future teases should give fans an idea of what to expect on that front, though in some cases fans may have to wait to see the games for themselves.
Pokemon Scarlet and Violet are coming to Nintendo Switch exclusively on November 18.
