Best: The endgame

Scarlet fever And Violet are huge games with all their open-world nonsense, but when the game is reduced to its personal stories, it’s at its best. The game has some of the best writing in the series, and it makes it all the more rewarding when all paths lead to the final quest in Area Zero. At the behest of Professor Sada or Toro (depending on which game you’re playing), the player and the friends he’s made make their way into the Crater of Paldea, where notoriously dangerous Pokémon roam. As the group descends into the deepest depths of the region, they uncover terrifying truths, culminating in one of the darkest stories ever told in the franchise, complete with outstanding music, an incredible final boss fight, and a cast dynamic the game never has Quite calmed down before, it’s an unforgettable moment in the Pokemon game canon.

As the first fully open world game in the series Scarlet fever And Violet are ambitious, but they’re also riddled with glitches, weak animation and traversal, and at times feel like they’re about to fall apart. Game Freak released updates, but those of the game not in the best condition yet. Hopefully by the time it’s all said and done Scarlet fever And Violet will get these things sorted out. Then I can update this article to switch that bullet point to its open-world clarity. The best and worst parts of every Pokémon game
