Pokemon Scarlet and Violet are games that, while following the series formula, feel different, and while you are beaten by the Elite Four on the Victory Road, it really stands out. The structure of these final fights and how the game plays play make it more difficult to test than in the previous game. When you continue to challenge the people you encounter, the second challenge is more formal than before.
Editors note: This post contains spoilers for the Scarlet and Violet Elite Four.
I’ve mentioned, the fact that we continue to see every member of the Elite Four as we start to beat the Pokemon League gyms during the Pokemon Scarlet and Violet Victory Road storyline makes it seem like there is more professional oversight in Paldea. Poppy, Hassel and Geeta continue to make themselves known. They will look at your progress when you are out at the gym. Geeta especially is very involved, almost lurking in the beginning of the system.
Larry, of particular interest, ended up being quite a surprise. We see him as a normal-type gymnast leader and as a senior four-star member. This is interesting because it shows the structure of the Pokemon League and his stature inside the system. While he is indistinguishable from being overworked, it does show how much work a member of the system can earn. It still suggests more structure and professionalism to all.
The dismissal of the actual Victory Road in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet is another option that I appreciate. It can be a maniac game. When someone comes to the Elite Four, they might have moonlighted a little, taking on other quests along the way. Although dungeons are not present in any other realm, there could be a sense of fatigue when added to this exercise. That’s because taking the decision to resign and head to the headquarters gives a sense of formality. You proved you deserve to reach the Elite Four by beating all of the gyms that went before it.
Using Rika to investigate the upcoming Pokemon Scarlet and Violet, this is a moment another. It proves, again, that this challenge is serious business in Paldea. Especially since the interview is on the other hand. It isn’t too difficult, yes. If you keep track of what you said and remember your time on the ball and stick to your decisions, passing is easy. Although the questions include the follow-ups on Rikas interview, remember what you intend to do if you become an epoch, which gym you found most difficult, the name of that challenging epoch, and its Pokemon type are what you are really required to do. But even more importantly, the fact that you must try and keep some thought into the situation is good for the gravity of the situation.
Finally, when faced with the Elite Four and Geeta herself, the atmosphere surrounding the matches is important. After each fight the previous member stays on the next page. The steel Pokemon has arrived after taking the down of Rika and the ground-type team. Rika watches the fight. When Poppy is knocked out, she gets back to Rika and watch the player play with the flying team. The dragons come out at night. When you fight Geeta, it’s all right, in the very best position.
It’s only a single, professional encounter. Last match against Nemona is that who ended up having to beat them. When you face him, its in Mesagoza. However, there’s more than an appropriate bookend to your initial encounters and experience with her. Especially since youre turning smacks against her, when they use only, say, a Paldean starter, Pawmi, and Rockruff to send out a Lycanroc, Orthworm, Goodra, Pawmot, Dudunsparce and a fully evolved starter. You did have all you could do before the last meeting with Nemona. So formality is done. This is more like losing the pair of friends that have the same skill.
All it goes to get recognized by the Pokemon League in Paldea as thought you were trying to apply. Your actions proved that you were a champion. When you finish chasing the elite four on the Scarlet and Violet Victory Road, you will be rewarded with respect to your work and treat the whole affair into formal and respectful manner.
