Hit Kitakami one more time in the Pokémon Scarlet and Violet epilogue

If you’ve already beaten The Hidden Treasure of Area Zero, we’ve got good news! There’s yet more battling to do with the arrival of the Pokémon Scarlet and Violet epilogue in 2024. While the epilogue is a free bit of a DLC, you do need to have completed both The Teal Mask and The Indigo Disk first, so unfortunately, if you still haven’t ventured further than Paldea, you’re going to have to pay up to see things through to the end.

The Pokémon Scarlet and Violet epilogue sees you team back up with the squad from the base game – Nemona, Pepper, and Penny – as you take a trip to Kitakami. While you’ve occupied yourself with becoming the Blueberry Academy League Champion and unraveling the mystery of Ogerpon, we’re sure your old pals have been busy, too, so it’ll be nice to catch up outside of the Academy Ace Tournament.

While what takes place in the DLC epilogue isn’t that clear from the trailer, the last few seconds cut to a shot of what looks like a piece of fruit in a food stall, but it could quite easily be a Pokémon. Considering we still don’t have a gen 9 mythical Pokémon, this could likely be this generation’s equivalent to Celebi or Jirachi, but we’ll know for sure before too long.
