Pokémon Scarlet and Purple will have one last surprise content after their DLCs

If there’s one thing we know, it’s that Pokémon Company always has an ace up its sleeve. It’s not the kind of company that you can expect to finish a video game without already having planned and in production not only the next one, but everything that should follow. That’s why we’re not surprised when they announce expansions, DLCs or epilogues that seem to come out of nowhere. Because that’s precisely what Pokémon Company does.

We said epilogue not just to say something, but because that’s what The Pokémon Company has just announced. An epilogue for the Pokémon Scarlet and Purple DLC, which will close its story with an adventure that will take us to Noroteo, a region where we will reunite with some of our adventure companions.

All of this, moreover, happens when we have relatively recent DLCs. With The Turquoise Mask having been released on September 13th and The Indigo Disc on December 14th, many people haven’t even completed them yet. Or maybe they haven’t even acquired them.

In addition, this announcement comes not without controversy. The Indigo Disk comes with an error that can block our game, forcing us to restart. This happens if we capture a particular Pokémon, Inkay, and level it up to level 30 using candies. An error that The Pokémon Company has acknowledged, but will not fix until the end of January.

This epilogue of the two DLCs, The Turquoise Mask and The Indigo Disc, will arrive on January 11th. While there is at least one game-breaking bug in these DLCs that The Pokémon Company is aware of and will not fix until two weeks after releasing this epilogue. A questionable decision that certainly does not make them look good in front of their audience. Even if it doesn’t seem to matter to them.
