Scarlet and Violet CP trailer unveils new Cyclizar

Scarlet and Violet CP trailer unveils new Cyclizar: Game Freak debuted a new teaser for Pokémon Scarlet and Violet during the 2022 Pokémon World Championship that showcased some of the game’s new fighting features and gave players their first glance at a brand-new Pokémon: the Dragon/Normal type Cyclizar.

Cyclizar has a motorcycle-like appearance with Scarlet and Violet’s mascot legendary Pokémon Koraidon and Miraidon, most notably in the form of the chest-protruding wheel.

The “Shed Tail” move, which was not used in earlier Pokémon games, was also shown by Cyclizar in the video. The Pokémon utilizing the action may use a decoy to fool its opponent before switching places with another party member.

Although it seems helpful in confusing rival trainers, the move will also deplete the Pokémon employing around 50% of its HP, according to the video.

The Mirror Herb item, which enables Pokémon who ingest it to mirror an opponent’s stat gains obtained in battle, was one of many other items and abilities that the video showed that seem likely to spice up Pokémon combat.

Meanwhile, the recently added Loaded Dice item increases the likelihood that extra hits will result from multi-strike attacks like Fury Swipes or Rock Blast.

The Terastallizing ability, a brand-new feature that enables Pokémon to assume crystal-like shapes and acquire new kinds and attacks, also given another look by Game Freak. The first mention of this power came at the Pokémon Presents celebration earlier this month.

Scarlet and Violet will have a four-player co-op option in addition to the new Pokémon and combat strategies, which has been a long-requested feature by fans.

As anticipated, certain existing Pokémon will also gain new regional forms. One such Pokémon is Wooper, whose Paldean version has gone viral online.
