Pokémon Scarlet and Violet is currently releasing to Trainers all around the globe.
While many are still waiting for the official Nov. 18 release date, those in various time zones are already getting their hands on the latest generation of Pokémon.
Pokémon Scarlet and Violet Arriving to Trainers Across the Globe
Pokémon Scarlet and Violet are now beginning to roll out to Trainers across the globe. While many still patiently wait for the game, a plethora of new information is now makings its way to the web. However, while almost a good chunk of information surrounding the games has found its way online, Trainers can now experience the Paldea region first-hand.

Along with the new release, plenty of other Pokémon games are also celebrating the event. Along with Scarlet and Violet seeing release, Pokémon GO is introducing new avatar items based around the academy uniforms found in the new series.
Meanwhile, it seems like the official Pokémon Twitter account is focusing its efforts on scaring the crap out of Trainers with a short animated gif of Sabeleye.

Furthermore, it does seem like early reviews of the game are noting that the new games suffer from performance issues. While the current Metacritic score is a 77, it seems the low score is primarily due to the Nintendo Switch being unable to handle the expansive open-world. Several websites are reporting severe clipping issues, as well as notable drops in frame-rates. However, many critics are still complimenting the game overall, noting that the new open-world is rather impressive.
Of course, Trainers will have to judge the quality of the games for themselves.
While we here at the Pika Pika Times are patiently waiting for the game, it does seem like those getting access to the game are having an overall positive experience so far.
