If Pokémon Scarlet and Violet follow the same path as the previous generation, we should expect to see some form of DLC in the game’s future. While nothing along these lines has been confirmed just yet, a new leak may offer some evidence that more content is coming.
This leak comes from the data of Scarlet and Violet themselves, and it reveals two non-player characters who do not currently appear in the game: Billy and O’Nare. O’Nare seems to be associated with an as of yet unknown “Lady Trainer” class, as well as a Kantonian Meowth for use in battle. Where exactly these characters are meant to pop up or why they weren’t used is unknown, but a likely explanation seems to be that they’re planned for a DLC expansion down the road.
There’s some more speculation out there concerning the actual identity of these two characters, which you can dig into here if you’re so inclined. Of course, it’s also possible that these two were merely cut characters from the main game who may or may not show up again. We’ll have to wait and see when future content for Pokémon Scarlet and Violet is announced by Nintendo. Check out the leak’s initial report via a tweet from @CentroLeaks below.
