Part 2 of the Pokemon Scarlet and Violet DLC, The Indigo Disk, finally has an official release date and fans can look forward to loads of new content.
The Teal Mask had a relatively light content offering, adding the new Kitakami area and a straightforward story quest. Though players could ultimately get four new legendary Pokemon in Ogerpon, Fezandipiti, Okidogi, and Munkidori, the list of returning Pokemon mostly garnered shrugs outside of a few exceptions and sidequests were limited in what they offered outside a free shiny Munchlax.
That’s not surprising necessarily, as the first Pokemon Sword and Shield DLC was largely the same with the Isle of Armor expansion getting panned by fans. The second part, The Crown Tundra, delivered in a big way and fans are expecting the same in this generation.
What is the Pokemon Scarlet and Violet: The Indigo Disk DLC release date?
The Indigo Disk will launch in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet on December 14, 2023. The news was confirmed on the official Pokemon Twitter account.

Here’s the new content Pokemon Scarlet and Violet: Indigo Disk DLC adds to the game
Pokemon Scarlet and Violet: The Indigo Disk will let players catch all starters from previous generations, will add a new Pokemon type, and continues the story of The Teal Mask.
Just in terms of what’s been confirmed, lots of content has been added that is sure to delight longtime Pokemon fans. Several new Pokemon have been revealed including more Paradox Pokemon based on legendaries, an evolution of Duraludon, and new legendary Pokemon Terapagos. Data mines and reveals in the Teal Mask suggest that several more will be available.
Precedent also suggests there are plenty of other features that haven’t been revealed yet. Previous Pokemon games let players catch a variety of legendaries from previous generations, and in Pokemon Sword and Shield that came in the Crown Tundra DLC with Dynamax Adventures. Having the ability to catch and breed regional variants would also make sense as an addition.
Trailers also hint that a greater emphasis will be placed on double battles in the new DLC. With Blueberry Academy focused on serious battling and doubles competition being the go-to battle system for real-life Pokemon tournaments, this would be a logical area of emphasis for the DLC. A unique battle mechanic that adds a new type for Terastalized Pokemon is also coming with
