On Tuesday, The Pokémon Company International announced during its Pokémon Presents stream that a new game titled Pokémon Legends Z-A will launch worldwide for the Nintendo Switch in 2025.

A new trailer has been released as well:

The video reveals an urban development plan, “a vision of beautiful coexistence between people and Pokémon,” for Lumiose City.

The city was located in the Kalos region in the Pokémon X/Y games for Nintendo 3DS.

The colors in the “Z-A” portion of Pokémon Legends Z-A’s logo match that of a legendary Pokémon from the series’ sixth generation Zygarde.

The trailer teases that similarly to how the previous Pokémon Legends: Arceus game featured the history of Pokémon Diamond/Pearl’s Sinnoh region, Pokémon Legends Z-A can explore the past of Pokémon X/Y’s Kalos region.

“Pokémon” is a popular video game franchise developed by Game Freak and published by Nintendo.

The series revolves around fictional creatures called Pokémon, which humans, known as Pokémon Trainers, catch and train to battle each other for sport.

Players take on the role of Pokémon Trainers, embarking on journeys to become Pokémon Masters by capturing, training, and battling Pokémon.

The core gameplay involves exploring various regions, capturing Pokémon using special devices called Poké Balls, and training them to increase their strength and abilities.

Trainers engage in turn-based battles with other trainers or wild Pokémon, using their Pokémon’s unique moves and abilities to defeat opponents.

Each Pokémon belongs to one or more elemental types, such as Fire, Water, and Grass, which affect their strengths and weaknesses in battle.

Throughout the series, players encounter different Pokémon species, characters, and challenges, including battling against other trainers, competing in Pokémon Gyms to earn badges, and thwarting the plans of villainous organizations.

The franchise has expanded to include numerous mainline games, spin-offs, trading card games, animated series, movies, and merchandise, captivating audiences of all ages around the world with its charm, strategy, and sense of adventure.
