Tera Raid battles were touched upon in the trailer. Footage showed up to four players taking on a wild Pokemon as a timer counted down in real-time. This is different than how Pokemon Sword and Shield handled Raid Battles. Which had a countdown timer based on turns passed.

You can watch the gameplay in the Pokemon Scarlet and Violet Overview Trailer below. Please keep in mind that it will contain spoilers, such as footage of new Pokemon (and version exclusives), explanations of new mechanics, and a brief glimpse of notable NPCs.

Additionally, the trailer goes into other features. This includes the use of the Camera App to take in-game screenshots that can be applied to your unique player profile. Players can also have picnics with their Pokemon, which will increase their bond. The picnic mechanic will let you wash your Pokemon, and assemble a sandwich that you can share with your party.

Pokemon Scarlet and Violet will launch on November 18, 2022.
