Upscaled Pokemon Scarlet & Violet Map Offers Closer Look at Paldea Region – IGN
During today’s Pokemon Presents presentation, the Pokemon team revealed a full map of Paldea, the region where Pokemon Scarlet and Pokemon Violet are set. While the official map is slightly blurry, a fanmade upscaled version is now giving us a clearer look at the Paldea region.
Today, IGN’s own Ryan Quintal created an upscaled version of the map, revealing notable details of the region in a Twitter thread.
Quintal pointed out how diverse the map is, making note of several desert regions, seaside towns, smaller, grassy towns, and mountainous cliffside locations. Find all the details of Quintal’s map below:
The Pokemon Company also revealed further details about Paldea on its website, stating that it’s filled with “a variety of locations, ranging from a farming village with bountiful harvests to a port town with a bustling marketplace.”
Pokemon will also occupy every nook and cranny of Paldea’s diverse terrain, living in “treetops, rivers, and all sorts of other locations in the wilderness.”
Pokemon Scarlet and Violet are slated to release on November 18. During today’s presentation, we learned that you’ll be able to explore Paldea’s open world with the help of the games’ strange living vehicle legendaries.
