Pokémon Scarlet & Violet expansions announced for 2023

Much like Pokemon Sword & Shield, the latest games in the series, Scarlet & Violet, will also be getting two expansions. The first major DLC is arriving this summer, with the second scheduled to roll out before the end of the year. 

Today as part of a Pokemon Presents stream to celebrate Pokemon Day, Game Freak announced a two-part expansion for Pokemon Scarlet & Violet, known as ‘The Hidden Treasure of Area Zero'. Part 1, titled ‘The Teal Mask' will arrive in Fall 2023, and Part 2, known as ‘The Indigo Disk' will arrive sometime this Winter.

While we don't know much about the DLCs at this time, they will include new story content, new Pokemon to find and new areas to explore. While the DLC is being split into two parts, it seems they won't be sold separately, but rather as one bundle. Pre-orders will go live on the Switch eShop later today.

While paid DLC is on the way, Scarlet & Violet will also continue to get free updates, including a new Tera Raid for each game, introducing Walking Wake in Scarlet and Iron Leaves in Violet.
