Today brings our final big information dollop for Pokémon Scarlet and Violet ahead of their release next week – and our first look at a feature in the game which has remained under wraps until now.
Each game will feature a separate book of expedition records with rare Pokémon to track down, letting you retrace their steps to encounter them yourselves. However, it sounds like the Scarlet Book and the Violet Book will feature alternate versions of these Pokémon, depending on which version of the upcoming games you have.
Put more simply: today’s trailer appears to show a pair of new evolutions for Donphan. One is primal looking with huge tusks, which you’ll meet in Scarlet. One is futuristic-looking with dot-matrix eyes, which you’ll meet in Violet.
