What to expect from Pokemon Scarlet and Violet The Indigo Disk DLC


During this part of the DLC, players will be taken to the Blueberry Academy, where they will meet Director Cyrano. The underwater school features four different biomes, each of which features Pocket Monsters not found in Generation IX so far in the wild. This also includes all the starters from all the previous regions.

The school promises grueling battles against its Elite Four members: Lacey, Crispin, Amarys, and Drayton. You will also encounter Archaludon, the evolved form of Duraludon on Drayton's team.

Other than that, you will get the chance to interact with the new Legendary, Terapagos, as well as two Paradox Pokemon: Raging Bolt and Iron Crown.

You will have access to The Indigo Disk DLC if you have already purchased The Hidden Treasure of Area Zero expansion pack for Pokemon Scarlet and Violet. If you haven't, you can get it for $34.99 USD and play The Teal Mask as well.
