Ever since its announcement in February, fans have been dying to hear more information on Pokémon Scarlet and Violet. Although the starter Pokémon were revealed, there hasn't been much additional information released by the game's developers. However, reputable game leaker Centro LEAKS has uncovered new details on the upcoming Pokémon Scarlet and Violet game.
According to Centro LEAKS, the new region in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet is named "Paldea." It must be noted, this name is an approximate translation from Japanese. The name "Paldea" is believed to be a combination of the words "Pokémon" and "Aldea," which means "village" in Spanish. The original Japanese text is listed in the Tweet.

Centro LEAKS has been responsible for several leaks in the Pokémon community, becoming a main source for information about Pokémon Scarlet and Violet. They are the source of the leaks about the game's starter Pokémon and their types. Centro LEAKS was also the face behind numerous leaks about the upcoming DLC for Pokémon Legends: Arceus, including a list of over 150 Pokémon.
They also released leaks on whether time travel will be a feature in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, as well as answers to "Will there be a new Eeveelution?" At the moment, Centro LEAKS is one of the most active Pokémon leakers in the game's community and considered a trustworthy source by its members.
Even so, these are still considered leaks and may or may not be true. To confirm these leaks, the community will have to wait until official information is released concerning Pokémon Scarlet and Violet.
