In the eyes of a number of players, the open world of Pokémon Scarlet…
Trailer after trailer, The Pokemon Company has lifted the veil on Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, spearheaded by its open world. However, in the eyes of some players, it seems to be far too “empty”.
With the end of linear storylines, an emphasis on open-world, multiplayer exploration, and the arrival of new mechanics such as Teracrystallization, the release of Pokémon Scarlet and Violet is poised to shake up the franchise more than ever.
While most of these new features have been viewed favorably by the Pokémon community, the open world promised in these new installments is a matter of debate. Thrilled to finally have a true open world, players could already see themselves roaming the Paldéa region, encountering Pokémon around every corner and raving about the varied and dense flora, but the trailers have slowly dampened the enthusiasm of a number of them.
