The 9th generation of Pokemon games have finally been announced this week called Pokemon Scarlet and Pokemon Violet. Fans are already quick to analyze everything about the trailer and are finding very specific details that many will miss. Some of those details can also be related to previous games and fans have found Easter Eggs in past games that could hint to the Gen 9 games. Here are some things found so far.
Sword & Shield
Oranges and Grapes have been a strange focus for Scarlet and Violet. We can see them both shown multiple times throughout the trailer and it even matches the colors of the trainer’s outfits. Fans found a room in Pokemon Sword & Shield at the Hotel Ionia in Circhester that is blocked off but you can clearly see the wallpaper has oranges and grapes on it. This could be a coincidence or it was planned to hint at what the next generation will focus on. These fruits could be a clue at what new legendary Pokemon may look like in Gen 9.
Brilliant Diamond & Shining Pearl
A Reddit user by the name of DDD-Hero found that there may have been a hint to Pokemon Violet and Scarlet in BDSP. In the original Diamond and Pearl games, the color of a flower patch in Twinleaf were Red, White, and Blue. Now, in the BDSP remakes, the same flowers are red and purple just like the Scarlet and Violet colors.
Copyright In Real Life
Besides previous games that hint at the upcoming Pokemon Scarlet and Violet games, it’s been known for a while that The Pokemon Company copyrights names that can be used as titles for Pokemon games. In a Yahoo article from 2009, it was reported that Nintendo trademarked Pokemon Scarlet all the way back in 2008. This doesn’t mean that the game was being developed then but the name of the game was at least an idea 14 years before it was officially announced!
