Pokémon Scarlet and Violet DLC Brings Back Iconic Creatures

A new Pokémon Scarlet and Violet DLC is ready to renew the experience of trainers around the world who are still enjoying the newest game in the beloved Pocket Monsters franchise.

The Hidden Treasure of Area Zero is a new DLC for Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, featuring the new Kitakami area and new Pokémon.

Pokémon Scarlet and Violet innovated mechanics by taking place in the open-world region of Paldea, located on the Iberian Peninsula, with  3 separate campaigns from which players could choose.

Critics were divided at the time, as some praised the title for its interesting narrative and spin on the open-world formula and others criticized it for its graphical and technical problems. Regardless of reviews, 10 million copies were sold in its first three days marking it Nintendo’s biggest launch ever and the fourth best-selling Pokémon game of all time.

The Pokémon Scarlet and Violet DLC, The Hidden Treasure of Area Zero, was announced in February 2023 at the Pokémon Presents event, where players were introduced to a brand new area far from Paldea, as well as an unprecedented collection of creatures.

The DLC is divided into two parts, The Teal Mask and The Indigo Disk. In The Teal Mask, players visit the land of Kitakami on a school trip and in the second, a tournament at Blueberry Academy.

The DLC also features new characters including Trainers Carmine and Kieron as seen in official artwork, along with Briar. The Hidden Treasure of Area Zero also has a new item to increase the base point of a Pokémon’s stats or reset them completely in the form of Mochi.
