​​​​​​​Get ready to meet more Pokémon beyond the borders of the Paldea region

Bellevue, Wash. — April 17, 2023 — The Pokémon Company group revealed today that Trainers will be able to uncover the mystery behind a newly discovered Pokémon found in The Hidden Treasure of Area Zero, the upcoming downloadable content for the Pokémon Scarlet or Pokémon Violet video game. A newly discovered Pokémon will also appear in the latest animated series, “Pokémon Horizons: The Series,” which recently premiered in Japan before its release around the world starting later this year.

Who’s That Pokémon?!
This unknown Pokémon is reminiscent of the Legendary Pokémon Terapagos, but its name and true nature are shrouded in mystery. It is small in stature and not particularly strong, but when push comes to shove, it can crystallize the energy in its body to form a protective shield. Apparently, it can also assume a dormant state when it feels that its life is in danger by pulling its head, limbs, and tail into its shell and making itself look like a jewel.​

In The Hidden Treasure of Area Zero, players will leave the Paldea region and be able to delve deeper into the world of Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet.
