What new Pokémon are in the 'Scarlet' and 'Violet' DLC?

At the end of the presentation, The Pokémon Company introduced five new Pokémon for the Scarlet and Violet DLC.

In The Teal Mask, players will travel to the mountainous island of Kitakami, where they'll meet three of the new Pokémon who have protected the land: Okidogi, Munkidori, and Fezandipiti. Heralded as heroes by the residents of Kitakami, these three are beloved protectors and even have stone statues made in their likeness as gratitude from the people.

Players will also come across Ogerpon, a new Legendary Pokémon shaped like a bipedal creature, wearing a mask with multicolored gemstones over it.

For The Indigo Disk, trainers will depart from the homey Kitakami to Blueberry Academy, "a sister school." Players will transfer over to Blueberry Academy as exchange students for their studies, but it's unclear what exactly will unfold there as of this writing.

However, we know fans will encounter another new Legendary Pokémon called Terapagos, appearing as a sea creature with a shell decorated with different elemental types. It also seems to have a "glittering aura," according to its official description from the live stream.

The second half of the DLC for Scarlet and Violet is shrouded more in mystery than the first, but players should expect to learn more as the release dates get closer.

'Pokémon Scarlet' and 'Violet' DLC is bringing back old Pokémon, too.

There are plenty of Pokémon from past generations that players never could encounter in Paldea. Luckily, that will change in the upcoming Pokémon Scarlet and Violet DLC, returning old Pokémon throughout the new regions.

During The Teal Mask, players could encounter Chingling, Shiftry, Milotic, Ninetales, and Vikavolt, while Dewgong, Metagross, Alcremie, Espurr, Zebstrika, and Whimsiscott arrives in The Indigo Disk.

The Pokémon Presents also dropped news of Pokémon Home soon becoming linked with Pokémon GO and Scarlet and Violet to introduce "over 230 familiar Pokémon that have been found living in other regions but had not appeared in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet."

For all the die-hard collectors out there, your list of catchable Pokémon seems like it will get much bigger later this year.
