As spotted in the latest Pokemon Scarlet and Violet trailer, it appears the new games will be making a big improvement to a Generation 5 Pokemon.
Pokemon Scarlet and Violet will be introducing plenty of new Pokemon to the franchise, but the games will also feature many returning Pokemon as well. The returning Pokemon in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet hail from every generation in the franchise, and while there will be some Pokemon who don’t make the cut, fans can expect hundreds to collect once the new games launch later this year.
No one involved with Pokemon Scarlet and Violet have released a list of returning Pokemon in the games, but fans know of at least some of the games’ returning Pokemon thanks to the three trailers that have been released so far. Each new Pokemon Scarlet and Violet trailer has given fans a look at returning Pokemon that will be featured in the new games, with one such Pokemon being Generation 5’s Eelektross.
Eelektross is an Electric-type Pokemon and the final form of Tynamo, evolved from Eelektrik when using a Thunder Stone. Eelektross first debuted in the Generation 5 Pokemon games Pokemon Black and White, with its sprite showing it standing on the ground. But from Pokemon X and Y onwards, Eelektross has been depicted as floating in air, giving the creature a flatter (and arguably far less interesting) look. But as spotted by Twitter user SibiruG, and reported by Nintendo Life, Eelektross is getting a big change in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet.
The latest Pokemon Scarlet and Violet gameplay trailer gives players a brief look at Eelektross as it will appear in the new games. To the delight of Generation 5 Pokemon fans, Eelektross in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet appears to be in its original, standing state in the new games. It seems many fans approve of this change back to how Eelektross was originally presented in Pokemon Black and Whiteas the tweet has over 14,000 likes at the time of this writing.
It seems many fans are happy with Eelektross having its original look, and it will be interesting to see if any tweaks are made to how the other returning Pokemon in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet are presented. Future trailers for the games should give fans a better idea of what to expect on that front, though in some cases fans may have to wait to play the games for themselves. The good news is that the Pokemon Scarlet and Violet release date is merely months away, so the wait is coming to an end.
Pokemon Scarlet and Violet launch November 18, exclusively for the Nintendo Switch.
