Posted 13 Sep 2023 at 10:53 by Joshua Phillips
It’s a big day for Pokémon Scarlet and Violet as not only is there a new update, Ver. 2.0.1., which brings with it plenty of bug fixes and new features, but it’s also the release day of part 1 of the DLC!
Even if you haven’t purchased the The Hidden Treasure of Area Zero, there’s plenty to keep you occupied with this new update, which we'll touch upon first!
We'll go into more detail about the DLC after the following patch notes:
For Trainers who have not purchased The Hidden Treasure of Area Zero, additional Pokémon may appear via local or online communication modes.
Newly Added Features:
You will now be able lock the mini map that appears while you are out in the field so that up is always north. You can do this by pressing the Right Stick twice while you have the map app open to select the App and mini maps locked setting.
Camera settings have been added to the Options menu. These settings will let you adjust how the camera works while you are out in the field.
We have added a feature that allows you to signal a Pokémon accompanying you in the field to stop and wait where it is. To give this signal, press the Left Stick.
You can now take pictures by pressing the A Button in the camera app.
You can now play music by pressing the ZL Button or ZR Button while the camera app is open. You may find that Pokémon accompanying you in the field and people around you will react to the music.
While using the Union Circle, Trainers can now share photos they have taken with the camera app during that Union Circle session with the friends they are playing with.
We have added a feature to TM Machines that allows you to filter for moves your Pokémon can learn. By interacting with a TM Machine and selecting the option to filter for learnable moves, you will be able to display only TMs containing moves that a specific Pokémon can learn.
Bug Fixes and Feature Adjustments:
Incorrect descriptive text for the moves Ceaseless Edge, Dire Claw, and Stone Axe has been corrected. The descriptions for these moves previously included the words “aiming to land a critical hit,” but these moves do not increase the critical-hit ratio in Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet. This wording has been removed from these descriptions.
We have fixed a bug where the Itemfinder Mark would not be applied to a Pokémon even if the conditions were met.
Wild Pokémon that have the Titan Mark will now reappear in the field after a certain amount of time if they have been defeated.
We have made adjustments to the way Pokémon icons are displayed in the Boxes.
Other select bug fixes have been implemented.
Now onto the meat of this update, part 1 of the paid DLC, The Hidden Treasure of Area Zero: The Teal Mask. It’s available to play now, offering new story content, new Pokémon and the return of plenty of classic Pokémon too!
Part 1: The Teal Mask – coming September 13th!
Take a school trip to the tranquil Land of Kitakami, whose people live at the base of a great mountain. Wear a traditional jinbei outfit as you meet new friends and Pokémon and unravel the mysteries behind the folk tales of this land. Encounter Okidogi, Munkidori and Fezandipiti – three Pokémon celebrated by the people of the village as heroes who protected the Land of Kitakami in the past. Discover the Legendary Pokémon Ogerpon with its fearsome mask!
Early-purchase bonus: Hisuian Zoroark
If you purchase The Hidden Treasure of Area Zero by October 31st, 2023, you'll be able to get a Hisuian Zoroark in Pokémon Violet whose Tera Type is Dark and who knows a move it can't normally learn!
Here's just a taste of some of the Pokémon returning in this DLC:
