Pokémon Scarlet and Purple gyms would not have a level scaling, although they could be overcome in any order.
Pokemon Scarlet and Purple continues without revealing new official details of the deliveries that will arrive next November 18th to Nintendo Switch to kick off the ninth generation of the franchise developed by Game Freak. For this reason, the rumors and alleged leaks continue to pile up in the vastness of the internet, such as the sketches of the final evolutions of Sprigatito, Fuecoco and Quaxly that we showed you recently. Now it’s the turn of the gyms, which could forever change the usual formula from the saga.
In this way, according to the information echoed by the CentroLeaks Twitter account, Pokémon Scarlet and Purple gyms will not have level scaling, so the leaders will have their Pokémon at a fixed level, regardless of when in the adventure you face them. Game Freak itself had already officially confirmed that you can visit each gym according to your own route, without following a specific orderbut this is causing some confusion among the community, as it breaks the usual formula of open worlds and the levels of the enemies in question.
– No new Garchomp form.
– Fuecoco’s evo signature move is sound-based.
– Pawmi’s evolution is very good late-game.
– New 3-stage Fire Pokémon.
– Reaffirmed the gyms don’t have level scaling, but can be done in any order.

So that, It will be necessary to see what is the formula that is followed to make sense of this absence of level scaling in the Pokémon Scarlet and Purple gyms, if this information turns out to be true. What is clear is that, if confirmed, it will be a mechanic that can change the future of the saga forever.
Pokémon Scarlet and Purple would also remove another classic mechanic
While new official information is still awaited, other rumors also claim that Pokémon Scarlet and Purple would eliminate another of the most classic mechanics of the franchise: breeding. It has not been highlighted how the use of the nursery would be replaced, but it is stated that Pokémon eggs would still be presentso it would be a way to make it easier to obtain and abandon a mechanic that has been present since the second generation.
Therefore, if all these details that are leaking in relation to Pokémon Scarlet and Purple are confirmed, the ninth generation could be one of the most revolutionary in recent timesalthough we will only completely clear up the doubts on November 18, when its exclusive premiere takes place on Nintendo Switch.
