Pokémon Scarlet and Violet Wave 2 DLC is reportedly set in Unova, newly acquired dialogue confirms. What does this mean for the game and players? Continue reading to find out.
Pokémon Scarlet and Violet Wave 2 DLC
Today (Wednesday, September 13), the very first wave ofPokémon Scarlet and Violet DLC which is The Teal Mask expansion was released on Nintendo Switch, and fans have been very fast to spot an important line of dialogue that reportedly confirms that the second expansion will be bringing players back to the Unova region, which was initially introduced in Pokémon Black and White.
The second expansion on the other hand which is titled The Indigo Disk is set to be released in the later parts of this year, although it is not known exactly when at the moment. What we do know however is that it will be taking players to Blueberry Academy which as you should know is a sister school to both Naranja and Uva Academy. It has however been clarified that this new school is found in Unova.
In The Teal Mask, on the other hand, players are introduced to a fresh-faced character that is named Briar, who is a teacher at Blueberry Academy. The player’s homeroom teacher, Jacq, when introducing her, says: “That’s a school in the Unova region, you know. Ms. Briar helps set the curriculum there.”
What Players Need To Know About These Updates
What isn’t clear at the time of writing on the other hand is if players will reportedly be able to see or even visit any of the locations in Unova which were included in Pokémon Black, White, and their sequels prior to this. Blueberry Academy in question for those that don’t know was never mentioned in those mentioned games, and it has already been revealed that “most of this unusual school is located under the ocean”. Therefore, even though the setting is in the fan-favorite region from the Nintendo DS era, The Indigo Disk DLC in question may just not make classic Unova quite explorable.
Pokémon Scarlet and Violet’s 2.0.1 Update
Pokémon Scarlet and Violet’s 2.0.1 update was also rolled out today in case you don’t know, and the update in question introduces a host of new features as well as quality-of-life improvements to all players, regardless of whether it is they have bought the DLC or not. Some highlights on the other hand include the option to lock the mini-map to a north-facing position, as well as the ability to play music while taking photos (which will very much make your Pokémon respond in several ways).
An Existing Issue Reportedly Fixed With the Update
And perhaps most importantly, Pokémon icons now load very much faster when browsing through your Boxes, thus improving on a problem that has been affecting players since its launch.
