Pokemon Scarlet and Violet Competitive Play Trailer reveals Cyclizar alongside new moves and items
Written by admin

A new competitive game trailer for Pokemon Scarlet and Violet has been released, revealing new moves, new items, and Cyclizar, a Dragon-type and Normal-type Pokemon that could very well be the pre-evolution of it The legendary Pokemon of the new games Myraidon and choroid.

The trailer was unveiled during the 2022 Pokemon World Championships and gave us another look at fighting in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet. Cyclizar was one of the focal points of the new footage and as you can see below, the new Pokemon is not only similar in appearance to the previously mentioned Legendaries, but it can also be used as an in-game mount like Miraidon and Koraidon. Their connection hasn’t been confirmed one way or another, but the clues are there to lead to the possibility.

He, It is revealed that cyclizar “lived in many households in the Paldea region since ancient times. It has a mild disposition, and people riding cyclizar are a very common sight. It seems that cyclizar don’t mind being ridden ‘Cause it’s so warm a rider helps them ward off the cold.”

It can also sprint over 70 MPH while carrying a human, and it comes with one new train called Shed Tail which “creates a substitute for [Cyclizar] with its own HP before swapping places with a waiting Party Pokémon.”

We were also shown some items in the trailer and on and they are as follows;

  • Mirrorweed: This herb allows the possessor to mirror an opponent’s stat increases and improve their own stats – but only once.
  • Concealing Cloak: This hooded cloak conceals the owner and protects them from the additional effects of movement.
  • Charged Dice: If a Pokémon wielding this item uses a multi-attack attack, that attack is more likely to hit more often.

Finally, terastalising was presented and teased the phenomenon in the Paldea region this makes Pokemon “shine and shimmer like gems”. Aside from looking extra sparkly, Terastallize in battle changes your Pokemon’s type to its Tera type.

There is also a TM that can teach Pokemon the Normal Tera Blast type move, which becomes an attack of the same type as the Pokemon’s Tera type.

Pokemon Scarlet and Violet will be released on November 18, 2022 on Nintendo Switch.
