Pokemon Scarlet & Violet Great Tusk and Iron Treads Revealed

Pokemon Scarlet & Violet Great Tusk and Iron Treads Revealed

Nintendo teased two more Pokemon Scarlet and Violet characters called Great Tusk and Iron Treads. These are two mysterious Pokemon seen in the Scarlet and Violet Books. Each game has its own book, which features lore from an ancient expedition. Arven, an NPC players will meet, carries it in each entry.

The official Pokemon Twitter account shared gifs showing each of the characters. First, the Great Tusk found in Pokemon Scarlet appears to resemble a mammoth. Its defining characteristic is a pair of huge tusks. However, it also features armor that looks like treads on its back.

With Iron Treads, the Pokemon Violet creature looks to be more robotic in nature. While it also features two “horns” on the sides of its body, it also seems to have a tread-like tail that curls up over its body.

Nintendo also shared pictures of these two creatures from the Scarlet and Violet Books that hint at their background.

Pokemon Scarlet and Violet will come to the Nintendo Switch on November 18, 2022. The newest trailer showed off gameplay and some starters while the Ed Sheeran song “Celestial” played.
