Team Star is revealed as the villain in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet

Take down Team Star.

Pokémon Scarlet and Violet are the latest entries in the mainline series. The Pokémon Company has revealed that the title's antagonist team will be Team Star, a group of rebellious students who form different crews.

The Seek Your Treasure trailer on the official Pokémon YouTube channel showcased the new enemy team in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet. Team Star appears to be broken down into smaller crews focusing on a specific type. The trailer showcased Mela, who is the leader of Team Star's Fire Crew.

The trailer also hints at special battles for the team leaders as Mela is seen standing atop a strange truck when battling the protagonist. Her Torkoal was also seen standing on top and attacking the protagonist's Pokémon below.

The trailer did not show how many team crews there would be, but there will likely be at least three, with each type representing the starter Pokémon, fire, grass, and water. Nintendo will likely reveal more information as Pokémon Scarlet and Violet's release date approaches.
