The Hidden Treasure Of Area Zero will be split into two parts. The Teal Mask is set for release in autumn 2023, with players visiting the new land of Kitakami as part of a school trip. Part two, The Indigo Disk will then follow in winter 2023, with players visiting Blueberry Academy. The DLC will be able to pre-order today, with new uniforms available as a reward.
New legendary Pokémon Ogrepon and Terapagos will also be introduced across the DLC while classic ‘mon will also be reintroduced.
