Welcome to the wide-open world of the Paldea region
Catch, battle, and train Pokémon in the Paldea Region, a vast land filled with lakes, towering peaks, wastelands, small towns, and sprawling cities. Explore a wide-open world at your own pace and traverse land, water, and air by riding on a form-shifting Legendary Pokémon—Koraidon in the Pokémon Scarlet game and Miraidon in the Pokémon Violet game. Choose either Sprigatito, Fuecoco, or Quaxly, to be your first partner Pokémon before setting off on your journey through Paldea.
Pick your path
There is no set path on your Paldea adventure, so you can weave freely through three grand stories.
Along Victory Road, you will challenge Gyms in different locations and aim to achieve Champion Rank.
Path of Legends
On the Path of Legends, take on gigantic Titan Pokémon that guard rare ingredients.
★ Starfall Street ★
In ★ Starfall Street ★, you’ll use the Auto Battle feature to take on Team Star grunts from your school in order to reach their boss.
Which will you choose?
SPRIGATITO - The Grass Cat Pokémon
Capricious and attention seeking, it may sulk if it sees its Trainer giving attention to a Pokémon other than itself.
FUECOCO - The Fire Croc Pokémon
Fuecoco is laid-back and does things at its own pace. It loves to eat, and it will sprint toward any food it finds with a glint in its eye.
QUAXLY - The Duckling Pokémon
This serious-mannered Pokémon will follow in its Trainer’s wake. It’s tidy, and it especially dislikes getting its head dirty.
