Join Jessica, Noah, and Marc as they break down everything we know about Pokemon Scarlet and Violet so far, and what they think it needs to do to succeed with new and old fans. From the new starters, to the changes to gyms and stories, the ‘first’ fully open world game in the main series, multiplayer, and the Paldea region itself – and a lot more!
