Pokemon Scarlet and Violet's second expansion, The Indigo Disk, received a new trailer that revealed it will be bringing back all previous starter Pokemon alongside a new Tera Type that looks to use all others as one super one.
Given the ever-growing nostalgic power of Pokemon, it does appear the second part of The Hidden Treasure of Area Zero DLC will be worth a look for those who have a fondness for the many generations of adorable and powerful grass, fire, and water-type starters. The trailer also notes they will show up "in spades," so it shouldn't be too tough to catch your favorites or even all of them.

In the trailer, we are treated to a new look at Torchic, Cyndaquil, Piplup, Oshawatt, Snivy, Rowlet, Froakie, Litten, Turtwig, Tepig, Chikorita, Fennekin, Charmander, Squirtle, Treecko, Popplio, Grookey, Chimchar, Scorbunny, Mudkip, Totodile, Sobble, Chespin, and Bulbasaur.
It isn't made clear if we will be able to catch Scarlet and Violet's Sprigatito, Fuecoco, or Quaxly as they aren't in this section, and it also appears that Pikachu and Eevee aren't included even though they have starred in games like Pokemon Yellow and Pokemon Let's Go!.
We then get a glimpse of some new moves like Psychic Noise (deals damage and prevents target from healing) and Upper Hand (strikes before a target's priority move).
We also get another look at Raging Bolt, the Electric/Dragon Paradox version of Raikou, who is using a move that strikes before a target's attack and is called Thunderclap. Iron Crown, The Steel/Psychic Paradox version of Cobalion, also shows up and uses a move called Tachyon Cutter that is guaranteed to hit twice in a row.
Lastly, a new Tera Type is revealed that looks to combine all other types. We don't learn too much about it, but it definitely looks to be something super powerful and special.
This new trailer follows another one from the most recent Pokemon Presents that focused on The Teal Mask, which is Part 1 of The Hidden Treasure of Area Zero. Part 1 will be released on September 13 and Part 2 will follow in Winter 2023.
