Later this month, a Pokémon-themed Splatfest is coming to Splatoon 3, with players tasked with deciding which is the best starting type – Grass, Water or Fire. The event kicks off November 12 and runs until November 14 in celebration of Pokémon Scarlet & Violet, which is set to be released November 18 for the Nintendo Switch.

The Pokémon Company recently released a 14 minute trailer showcasing many of the game’s new mechanics, as well as offering a look at the new Paldea region. Two new Pokémon have also been unveiled ahead of the launch of Scarlet & Violet – easy-going electric type Bellibolt and ghost dog Greavard. Check out the full list of confirmed Pokémon here.

Also set to feature in Scarlet & Violet is a specially-written original song by Ed Sheeran, called Celestial.

“I’ve played Pokémon since I was in primary school,” said Sheeran about his relationship with the games. “Me and my brother used to have different versions of the games and would trade Pokémon together ‘til we each completed our Pokédex. I loved the cards but the games are what I lost myself in. I loved the whole world they created; it kept me distracted if there was negative stuff happening in my life/school that I wanted to avoid. It was a world I could escape into and I’ve played it ever since.”

In other news, TikTok is set to give gaming a bigger platform on the app, via a dedicated tab. Earlier this year it was reported that TikTok, the video-sharing social media site, was set to launch a “major push” into the world of mobile gaming.
