Today’s Pokémon Presents gave us a lot of exciting details about the upcoming release of Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, one of which involves the aspect of enjoying the journey with friends and family. Shown off during the presentation was a close-up look at how players will be able to meet up with others through a feature called the Union Circle.


Up to three friends can join you there, meaning a total of four players can group together and venture out into the wide, open expanse of Paldea. Look for Pokémon together, ride together and race across the map, or simply explore the vast world to all your hearts’ desire!



Pokémon Scarlet and Violet release on November 18th, 2022. Looking to secure a copy? Be sure to visit our list of retailers you can purchase the game from in our pre-order guide!
