Pokemon Scarlet and Pokemon Violet are both coming out on the Nintendo Switch in November 12, 2022.
Pokemon Scarlet and Pokemon Violet are the next-generation games of the Pokemon franchise, and the second mainline games on the Nintendo Switch. Just like previous Pokemon games, Pokemon Scarlet and Pokemon Violet will feature turn-based battles between different species of Pokemon.
In Pokemon Scarlet and Violet, players will take on the role of a starting out trainer in a yet unnamed region that is probably based on the country of Spain.

For the first time ever, Pokemon Scarlet and Violet will be featuring two different Pokemon professors, with the professor dependent on which version of the game you buy.
Pre-purchasing the game will give players an exclusive special Pikachu that knows the move Fly and whose Tera Type is Flying.
Pokemon Scarlet and Violet Starters
Pokemon Scarlet and Pokemon Violet, just like any other mainline Pokemon games, will have a new set of Pokemon as their starters. While there are various rumors about the final evolutions of the starter Pokemon, but here are all of the confirmed information about the starter Pokemon so far:
Capricious and attention seeking, it may sulk if it sees its Trainer giving attention to a Pokémon other than itself.
When Sprigatito kneads and rubs with its forepaws, a sweet aroma is released that can mesmerize those around it. This aroma has therapeutic qualities and makes opponents lose their will to battle. The composition of its fluffy fur is similar to plants, letting it create energy by absorbing sunlight. It adds moisture to its fur by grooming itself, which aids its ability to photosynthesize.

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.
External heat is absorbed by the square scales on Fuecoco’s stomach and back, then converted into fire energy. These scales are always warm, and at times they can also grow very hot. Flickering atop Fuecoco’s head is fire energy that is leaking out from inside the Pokémon’s body. When Fuecoco gets excited, its head spouts more flames.

This serious-mannered Pokémon will follow in its Trainer’s wake. Quaxly is tidy, and it especially dislikes getting its head dirty.

It has strong legs and can swim without difficulty even in places with strong currents. In battle, it kicks its opponents swiftly and repeatedly.
