The legendary Pokémon of Crimson and Crimson are now known.

Pokémon Crimson and Crimson have shown themselves in a new trailer and announced what is probably the biggest innovation of the ninth generation: You can now actually play together. Up to four people can travel the world together.

But that’s not all, because the trailer shows us all sorts of other things. You can watch it right here:

Pokémon Crimson & Crimson – Second trailer reveals co-op mode and new Pokémon

That’s in the new trailer

As already mentioned, the 4 player co-op Probably the biggest innovation in the series. Unlike Pokémon Sword and Shield, where you could only fight certain battles together with the Dynamax Battles, you can now actually travel around together and also trade or fight with each other.

This was also new in the trailer:

  • Two professors: Futurus and Antiqua. Since the names are related to time, this could be a reference to the setting or the story.
  • The Legendary Pokemon: The two new legendary Pokemon Koraidon (Crimson) and Miraidon (Crimson) were shown at the end of the trailer. Also fitting the professors’ name, one of the lizard-type Pokémon looks more prehistoric and the other futuristic with its thrusters. Both have some sort of wheel on their chests, which might fit with the rumor that we can indirectly ride the Legendarys.
  • New Pokemon: If you look closely, you can also discover some new Pokémon, such as the normal Pokémon Ferkuli (Normal), the electric mouse Pamo and the plant-Normal Pokémon Olini.
  • Pokémon Companions: It looks like one of your Pokémon can accompany you on the road again, at least if you meet up with friends in co-op.
  • Poke Stations: The gas stations actually seem something like the new Poke Centers or shops to represent.
  • Arena Battles: There will also be arenas again, we get a quick look at a fire arena.
  • Pokémon Battles: That shouldn’t surprise anyone, but classic Pokémon battles against other trainers are also making a return.
  • To sneak: As already in Pokémon Legends: Arceus it looks like we’ll be able to sneak up on Pokemon again and maybe even catch them without a fight.
  • Open game world: You can explore the world completely freely without restrictions.
