Pokémon Scarlet and Violet’s The Indigo Disk DLC Detailed
The Pokémon Company provided new details and media for Pokémon Scarlet and Violet‘s The Hidden Treasure of Area Zero Part 2: The Indigo Disk DLC ahead of its release next week. The DLC will release for Nintendo Switch on December 14, 2023, and is available in a bundle with The Hidden Treasure of Area Zero Part 1: The Teal Mask, which released in September.
The Indigo Disk follows on from the events of The Teal Mask and sees players visiting Blueberry Academy as an exchange student. A newly-built school, Blueberry Academy lies mostly underwater and has a giant terrarium with savanna, coastal, canyon, and polar biomes. The Blueberry Academy has its own BB League ranking system for Pokémon trainers, with its own Elite Four. To challenge the Elite Four, players will first need to complete a set of trials. Players will also be able to join the League Club and redecorate its clubroom, as well as invite other trainers to act as their special instructors.
Once players progress far enough in The Indigo Disk, they will gain access to the Synchro Machine. This device lets them se the world through the eyes of their Pokémon and while synchronised they can move around and battle wild Pokémon. The DLC will also unlock the ability for Legendary Pokémon Koraidon or Miraidon to fly. It will become available for the first time after taking on a challenge for one of the BB League’s Elite Four. After completing the DLC, players will be able to encounter a character named Snacksworth. After completing Blueberry Quests (BBQs) in the academy’s Terarium, players can obtain snacks from Snacksworth that let them encounter certain Legendary Pokémon from across the series.
