There you’ll meet lots of new friends and embark on a treasure hunt to discover three great stories – one of which involves the traditional Pokémon journey of challenging eight Pokémon Gyms with the goal of becoming a champion.
There are many new Pokémon to be found in the Paldea region, including a regional form of Wooper. You’ll also meet the delightfully muddy Fidough, as well as Cetitan, who can freeze his surroundings with his horn.
