The Pokémon Company kept fans waiting in anticipation until the very end of the recent Pokémon Presents. Just before coming to a close, two new DLC expansion packs for Pokémon Scarlet and Violet were revealed. Titled The Teal Mask and The Indigo Disk, these two additions make up The Hidden Treasure of Area Zero DLC. The Teal Mask is set to release this fall, with The Indigo Disk coming soon after in the winter. Both expansions introduce new areas and each one has a new Pokémon connected to it.

Part 1, The Teal Mask, takes trainers to a new area of the Paldea region called Kitakami, which the player will explore for a school trip. In Part 2, The Teal Mask, you will study as a foreign exchange student at a place called Blueberry Academy.
