A DLC for The Pokémon Company’s main series games “Pokémon Scarlet” and “Pokémon Violet” was announced on Monday, Pokémon Day.
The upcoming DLC pack, titled “The Hidden Treasure of Area Zero,” comes in two parts: “Part 1: The Teal Mask” and “Part 2: The Indigo Disk.”
“In this year’s annual school trip, students from various schools – including you! – will be sent to the land of Kitakami, where people live at the feet of tall, towering mountains and the tranquil landscape is teeming with nature unfamiliar to Paldea, flourishing among rice paddies and apple orchards,” Part 1’s official description states.
Meanwhile, Part 2 players will find themselves transferred to Blueberry Academy.
According to Part 2’s official description, this institution “was only recently established and has a focus on teaching Pokémon battles. What’s unique about Blueberry Academy is that a large part of it is actually in the sea! Attend lessons, mingle with the local students and experience a new school life that’s anything but ordinary.”
Both new and familiar Pokémon will reportedly be introduced, including Ogerpon, Terapagos, Whimsicott, Alcremie, Ninetales, Metagross, Dewgong, Espurr, Chingling, Milotic, Shiftry, Zebstrika, Vikavolt and Yanma.

In the games, players get to explore the Paldea region and experience an open-world multiplayer function. They also meet several characters, including new professors, new rivals and two new legendary Pokémon.
“Part 1: The Teal Mask” is slated for release later this year in the fall, while “Part 2: The Indigo Disk” will be available in the winter.
Anyone interested in owning the DLC pack can pre-order it now via Nintendo for $34.99.
