As per right this moment’s Pokémon Presents, Pokémon Scarlet and Violet will function yet one more new type of Pokémon.
Terastallize is the method by which Pokémon are reworked from their common kinds into their Tera kinds. From the in-game footage proven, this appears to be carried out by throwing some sort of gem on the Pokémon.
Apparently, some Pokémon will change sorts after they terastallize. These sorts are known as a Pokémon’s “tera-type”. Tera sorts are usually not constant even throughout the identical species of Pokémon. For instance, one Eevee might have a tera sort of water and one other might have a tera sort of grass. Moreover, some tera sorts shall be rarer than others.
Each single Pokémon within the Paldea area will be capable to terastallize, that means each Pokémon has the potential to change sorts offered their tera sort is completely different to their base type typing.
A brand new sort of raid referred to as “Tera Raid Battles” shall be out there in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet. This shall be multiplayer for as much as 4 gamers and can enable the gamers to go trying to find uncommon tera sorts collectively. Although every participant will be capable to assault and heal on their very own timings, cooperation is essential to getting via a Tera Raid Battle collectively.
Extra info concerning this kind change will doubtless turn into out there quickly, however for now, it seems to be prefer it’s going to have a huge impact on how battling as Pokémon will now have unpredictable sort protection relying on their tera typing.
The total implications of those new sorts on battling and different core points of Pokémon will doubtless not be totally understood till we obtain extra info, however the preliminary impression is that these kinds are a recreation changer.
A number of different new options have been introduced on the Pokémon Presents occasion, including that the world of Pokémon Scarlet and Violet will be fully open without restrictions. This consists of the flexibleness to finish the area’s gyms in any order you’d like.
