Here are some details about the new Pokémon called Cyclizar, which debuted today at the Pokémon World Championships...

A Pokémon That Lives with Humans

This Pokémon has 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 appears Cyclizar don't mind being ridden because the warmth of a rider helps stave off the cold.

A Body Optimized for Running

Cyclizar can sprint at over 70 mph while carrying a human. Its extremely hard head and thick, lithe tail are not only useful for maintaining balance and absorbing shocks while sprinting—they also provide effective ways to attack during battles.

A slew of new information is also available about the casual and competitive game modes, which can be found below the trailer.

Ranked Battles, which players have had the chance to enjoy in Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield, will be returning in Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet. Players will be able to take on battles in the Casual Battles and Online Competitions modes as well.​
