Pokémon Scarlet/Violet: when will it be released?

Announced at the end of February 2022, Pokémon Scarlet / Violet will arrive in a few months, on Nintendo Switch, but when?

Game Freak and The Pokémon Company took advantage of a Pokémon Presents to announce the next game, or rather its next games, with Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet . The latter will offer several important changes for the franchise and this type of game, with the presence of an open world , which was confirmed in the wake of its announcement. But when can we play it?


As of this writing, we unfortunately don't have any release dates for Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet. However, as mentioned at the end of the announcement trailer, which gives us some information about this new episode, it will arrive at the end of 2022, on Nintendo Switch, exclusively . 

In fact, given the liabilities of the license, it is conceivable that  Pokémon Scarlet / Violet will be available at the end of autumn, during the month of November, since most Pokémon games of this caliber were released on Switch during this month (remake of Pearl and Diamond, Sword and Shield or even Pokémon Let's Go Pikachu / Eevee). Of course, we are not immune to a good surprise with an earlier release, although it remains unlikely.

We will know more in a few months, most certainly during the summer, around E3, if Nintendo organizes an event. This would be the perfect time to reveal more about this game, which will be awaited by all lovers of the franchise.

This article will be updated as soon as Game Freak or The Pokémon Company provide further details regarding the release of Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet .
