Are you wondering when you can expect the Pokémon Violet DLC release date and what new features and gameplay will arrive with it? Well, let us take you through what you can expect from both The Hidden Treasure of Area Zero – The Teal Mask and The Hidden Treasure of Area Zero – The Indigo Disk.

On top of two brand-new locations to explore with two never-before-seen legendary pokemon, each expansion offers a vastly different style and setting for the Pokémon series. In addition to the new additions, some returning features and Pokémon will also build out the DLC on top of the existing best Pokemon Violet pokemon.

The Pokémon Violet DLC release date is:

  • Wednesday, September 13, 2023 – Pokémon Violet The Hidden Treasure of Area Zero – The Teal Mask
  • Winter 2023  – Pokémon Violet The Hidden Treasure of Area Zero – The Indigo Disk

The two DLC packs are all a part of The Hidden Treasure of Area Zero story which will add more on top of what is already in the game to the lore of the world and region. But, you will be leaving the region and visiting new areas in the DLC.

Pokémon Violet DLC story

In The Teal Mask DLC, you’ll head to Kitakami on a trip, where you’ll meet two siblings from Blueberry Academy, learning about three Pokémon who saved the island from an evil ogre, those being Okidogi, Munkidori, and Fezandipiti, also known as The Loyal Three. This DLC is much more focused on freedom and exploration.

As for The Indigo Disk, you’ll be taken to the Blueberry Academy as an exchange student, a school that exists mostly underwater, as you explore the terrarium within it, making up four artificial regions. You’ll have to take new classes and experience how different Blueberry Academy can be. During The Indigo Disk, you will take part in The League Club, which will allow you to bring trainers from Paldea to visit and learn more about them as Pokémon trainers. This DLC seems to be focused on story and an academic experience compared to The Teal Mask.

You’ll also need to help a budding photographer to help capture a special Pokémon, and play the Ogre Oustin’ minigame for Mochi that can make your Pokémon stronger.

During The Indigo Disk, you’ll have to take on The BB League, a Blueberry Academy league with its own Pokémon battle ranking system. There are also plenty of trials across the artificial regions within the terrarium. Finally, there’s The League Club, with a clubroom that you can decorate, as well as find new ways to throw your Pokéball for additional customization.
