That's to a new trailer released earlier today, June 1, Pokemon fans finally have a concrete date for the release of Pokemon Scarlet and Violet.

The new trailer was released earlier today on the Pokemon YouTube channel and showcased various new features trainers could look forward to when they obtain a copy for themselves. Several of these are new for the franchise and exciting developments that bring the world of Pokemon even closer to reality. It's no surprise that fans are eager to learn when they can bring it to their own Nintendo Switch.

Here's when to expect Pokemon Scarlet and Violet to hit shelves.

Pokemon Scarlet and Violet Release Date

Trainers will have the chance to play Pokemon Scarlet and Violet on Nov. 18, 2022 — just in time for the holidays!

US trainers will be able to enjoy their post-Thanksgiving nap in the wake of exploring an all-new region based on the Iberian peninsula. They'll once again be making the age-old decision regarding which starter Pokemon will be fighting alongside them on this next Pokemon journey.

Those still having trouble with that decision are welcome to check out our explanations on whether they should choose Sprigatitio, Fuecoco, or Quaxly. Of course, these aren't the only new species introduced in Scarlet and Violet.

Additionally, with its clear past versus future motif, it's clear that Scarlet and Violet will be approaching the game's narrative conflict from a familiar yet unexplored angle.
