The first part of the paid DLC expansion features a new area in Kitakami, new and returning Pokemon and mysteries to solve.

The first paid DLC for Game Freak’s Pokemon Scarlet and Violet, The Hidden Treasure of Area Zero Part 1: The Teal Mask, is out now. It adds several new Pokemon, primarily from older generations like Snivy, Squirtle, Mudkip, Totodile and Treecko. Check out the overview trailer below to catch up on the story and learn more about the DLC’s plot.

Players will venture to Kitakami on a school trip, with a festival underway. However, various folktales exist, and it’s not long before players encounter a new Legendary Pokemon, Ogerpon. There’s also The Loyal Three – Okidogi, Munkidori and Fezandipiti. You can play the new quest alongside the base game’s Treasure Hunt.

The story continues in The Hidden Treasure of Area Zero Part 2: The Indigo Disk, which launches this Winter and sees players becoming exchange students at Blueberry Academy. You explore the Terrarium and its four artificial biomes, eventually challenging the Elite Four of the Blueberry League.
