Game Freak gave us a long look at the new generation of Pokémon games, including officially introducing a lot of new characters. Let's meet the Pokémon Scarlet and Violet rival.
Our rival in the Paldea region has now been named, along with some other key characters like Professors, Gym Leaders, and the principal of the Naranja and Uva Academies located in the region.
While we wait for Generation Nine to release, check out all the confirmed Pokémon returning to the game right here, as well as everything we know about Scarlet and Violet and where to pre-order it. We've got a handy guide on the new legendaries, and professors, too.
Who is your rival in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet?
Your friendly rival for Generation Nine is Nemona. She has long black hair with a cool green streak, and wears a school uniform like yours; this changes depending which version of the game you choose.
According to her official bio, she has a sunny disposition and is a huge fan of battling with Pokémon - who isn't? She'll help you out and guide you through the Paldea region, and will also help to challenge your skills.
What Pokémon does Nemona have?
Currently, we don't know which starter Pokémon your rival Nemona has on her team. We assume she'll take the starter that is strong against whichever you pick, as tradition suggests.
We have seen her use some of the new Pokémon in the trailer, though, including Smoliv, Lechonk, and Pawmi.
