Pokémon Crimson and Pokémon Cobalt are the primary paired versions of Generation VII. The games are available, like its predecessor, on the Nintendo 3DS. The games take place in the new Hageto region.

Both games  were revealed during a worldwide announcement by Satoshi Tajiri, Ken Sugimori & Tatsumi Kimishima through Nintendo Direct at 8 pm JST, on August 4, 2016. The paired versions were released worldwide (except for select countries) on April 15, 2017 and are available for both retail sale and download. All copies of the game are playable in all seven of the languages that the Pokémon games are released in: Japanese, English, German, Spanish, French, Italian, and Korean.

They are followed up by two sequels, Pokémon Crimson 2 and Pokémon Cobalt 2, which are set three years after the events of Pokémon Crimson & Cobalt and are the second and final paired versions of Generation VII.

Pokémon Crimson & Pokémon Cobalt Versions


The game begins at the player`s bedroom, where the player woke up to start his new adventure as a Pokémon trainer. First, the PC chooses one of the Starter Pokémon: Squacorn, a Grass-type, Stryger, a Fire-type, or Verguana, a Water-type. After that, your rival settles in together to the adventure and even to battle against trainers.

Then, the player explores the Hageto region, challenging Gym Leaders, and solving the origins of the Legendary Pokémon Typhlord/Matridna. However, Team Luciper has a plan. They want to dominate the whole Hageto region with the powers of the Legendary Pokémon. After the player stops them, he/she heads to the Pokémon League to become the strongest trainer of the Pokémon world.

After the main story, the player can get full access to the neighboring Kalos region.
