Pokemon Scarlet and Violet Tera Pokemon

A new 14-minute gameplay showcase of Pokemon Scarlet and Violet has been released. Various new gameplay mechanics were shown, most notably the ability to Terastallize, which allows a Pokemon to transform into a new Terastal form. This can be done once per battle, and it temporarily changes the type of the Pokemon to match its Tera Type. Each individual Pokemon has its own Tera Type, it's not locked to that Pokemon species.

Another big new mechanic is TM crafting. There are crafting machines located inside Pokemon Centers, and you can use items that you pick up along your adventure to craft TMs to teach specific moves to your Pokemon. Crafting also consumes League Points, which is another resource that probably serves to lock more powerful TMs behind some game progression.

Pokemon Scarlet and Violet Farigarif

A new Pokemon was also revealed: Farigiraf. If it sounds familiar, it's because it's the new evolution to Girafarig. The new Pokemon is a Normal/Psychic-type just like it's pre-evolution. Its design seems to combine both the head and tail of Girafarig into a single head on Farigiraf.

A few other smaller gameplay elements were shown, like the ability to cmopletely customize your character and take your Pokemon on picnics. Check out the full details in this lengthy new trailer here:
