The release of Pokémon Scarlet & Violet hit some fans hard when some of their favorite monsters were missing from the game's Pokedex. Starting in Fall 2023, however, new Pokémon from previous games will be added through both waves of the DLC. On top of that, there are a couple new Paradox forms and potential legendries to keep an eye out for as well.

The first wave of DLC, The Teal Mask, will center around the new legendary Ogerpon. This Pokémon can be seen dawning a mask and looks to be some sort of Grass-type. The second wave of DLC, called The Indigo Disk, will also feature a new legendary in the form of Terapagos. While it seems like it will be some sort of Water-type, icons of every Pokémon type can be seen on its shell.
