On Pokemon Day last week, during the Pokemon Direct event, we saw the first glimpse of the upcoming 9th generation Pokemon game. A trailer shows many hints of what the game is about and several clips of environments of an unknown region and some Pokemon battling. This came only a month after the release of Pokemon Legends Arceus, a game which may have changed Pokemon games forever. Naturally there’s a lot of hype and curiosity around this new game and some retailers are letting fans preorder early.
Where to Preorder Pokemon Scarlet and Violet
Only a few stores have the option to preorder the game sense the release is still far away. GameStop is one of the only and most reliable places you can preorder Pokemon: Scarlet & Violet. If you’re thinking about getting both games, preordering this early shouldn’t be an issue. But if you only plan on buying one game, it’s always good to wait for more information to come out before you make a decision. For example, we don’t know what legendary Pokemon you’ll be able to catch in each version of the game yet. Knowing this, If you would still like to preorder a copy, here’s where you can do that!
Pokemon Scarlet & Violet Release Date
On the GameStop website, the release date for these games says 12/31/2022. This is most likely just a placeholder and not a confirmed release date. The Scarlet & Violet teaser trailer states that the release date is “In Late 2022“, so it could be December but we’re not sure until The Pokemon Company or GameFreak confirms it.
A good question is there any bonus for preordering? As of right now, sense the release of Pokemon SV is still a while away, there aren’t any preorder bonuses. Pokemon Scarlet and Violet pre order bonus has not been announced yet. It’s very likely that there will be, though. It might be a good idea to wait until closer to launch to buy the game to get a bonus.
