Are Pokemon Scarlet and Violet Open World?
The good news is that yes, Pokemon Scarlet and Violet are open world games. As noted on the official site for the latest entries in the series “Pokemon Scarlet and Pokemon Violet are the first open-world RPGs in the Pokemon series. As you enjoy the hallmarks of the series — meeting, teaming up with, battling, training and trading Pokemon — you’ll be able to immerse yourself in a newly evolved adventure.”
This isn’t a half-step measure that you might have expected either, the site goes on to explain that Scarlet and Violet will offer “a world that you’re free to explore at your leisure and not in an order dictated by the story.”
How Big Is the Open World?
Currently, Game Freak and The Pokemon Company have yet to announce how many towns and cities will make up the region players will explore in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet, however, we do know that the games will take place in the Paldea Region.
According to a blog post, the Paldea Region is “a land of vast open spaces dotted with lakes, towering peaks, wastelands, and perilous mountain ranges.” The locations also seem varied, such as a “farming village with bountiful harvests” to a “port town with a bustling marketplace.”
