Pokemon Scarlet and Pokemon Violet were announced during Pokemon Day, and pre-order bonus information for the two games is starting to become available. In our latest guide, we’ll be rounding up all of the reservation news from major retailers as well as any bonuses that are announced in the months to come.

Pokemon Scarlet and Pokemon Scarlet, developed by Game Freak, ring in the franchise’s ninth generation. The Pokemon Company has indicated that this will be an open world experience “where various towns with no borders blend seamlessly into the wilderness.” The starters are the grass cat Sprigatito, fire croc Fuecoco, and duckling Quaxly. There’s much to be learned still, but we’re fairly far off from launch.
