Don’t judge a book by its cover.
We are almost into the end game now and with just 10 more days until Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet are finally here, The Pokémon Company has taken the time to reveal plenty of new details. We’re still none the wiser as to what the final evolutions for each starter Pokémon will look like, but the time has come to learn about the Scarlet Book, the Violet Book and be teased about two new Pokémon. All official information can be seen here:
The Scarlet Book, which will appear in Pokémon Scarlet, and the Violet Book, which will appear in Pokémon Violet, are records from an expedition, and they were written long, long ago. The expedition is said to have traversed an uncharted area of the Paldea region, but whether or not the accounts depicted in the books are true remains unclear. It seems Arven always carries a copy of one of the books with him.
Photographs and sketches of unidentified creatures fill the pages of the Scarlet Book and Violet Book. While there have been sightings of similar creatures in recent years, such reports are rare, and specific details of the creatures’ biology are still a mystery.
The Monster Known as Great Tusk: (Exclusive to Pokémon Scarlet)
The book describes how this savage monster attacked the expedition team with its large body and tusks, mortally wounding one of the explorers.
The Monster Known as Iron Treads: (Exclusive to Pokémon Violet)
It is said that when this monster curls its body and rolls to attack, it leaves a trail gouged into the ground, as if it had scorched the earth.
