In addition to knowing more details about the mechanics of the game and some of its characters, we were also able to immerse ourselves in Paldeathe map inspired by Spain where this open-world adventure will take place.

Pokemon described on the game’s official page Paldea as “a vast region full of lakes, high peaks, wastelands, and rugged mountain ranges” where the characters will live together in different locations.

The company explained that in ‘Pokémon Scarlet and Purple’ we will have a SmartRotom, a kind of smart device that will have different applications, including the Pokédex and the one that will allow us to explore on the map. Precisely, in the captures of the map appear the names of two places. One is Cahiz Trail, which is clearly linked to Cadiz. The other is Cave of the cove, which reminds us of La Caleta and its emblematic beaches. And, apparently, these are just some of the many examples that we will find in the game.

When we start exploring Paldea we will have the possibility to explore it freely, alone or accompanied by three other players thanks to the cooperative multiplayer features, and to capture wild Pokémon that will be scattered everywhere.

We will also have the possibility of visiting the eight gymnasiums to defeat their respective leaders. We won’t have to follow any particular order. And throughout the game, as explained by our colleagues from 3DJuegos, we will meet several characters, including the professor of biology Cinio, who is responsible for operating the SmartRotom. In addition, among our friends there will be Noa, a shy girl who is always accompanied by her backpack and Damián, a fantastic cook and older than us.
