Part two, The Indigo Disk continues the story from The Teal Mask. In this part, players will get the opportunity to explore the Blueberry Academy and its different biomes. This time, Blueberry Academy is located mostly under the ocean and will have new classes available. The Academy’s curriculum revolves around Pokemon battles.
The BB League, a league with student trainers, will be available. The BB League has its own Elite Four, Drayton, Amarys, Crispin, and Lacey.

Pokemon Scarlet and Violet DLC Price
The Hidden Treasure of Area Zero has a price tag of $34.99. Purchasing The Hidden Treasure of Area Zero Will unlock both parts of the DLC once these become available.
Part one, The Teal Mask has an estimated release date of September 13. Part two, The Indigo Mask shows April 30 2024 as its release date. Considering the official announcement stated Winter 2023, this date is inaccurate.
It’s important to notice there will be two bundles available in the Nintendo eShop. While both bundles have the same content, they each correspond to one version of the game. Players who own Pokemon Scarlet must purchase the Pokemon Scarlet The Hidden Treasure of Area Zero bundle. If players buy the wrong version, it won’t be compatible with their game.
Once available, the content will download automatically. In order to play these new adventures, players must complete the game and at least begin the Treasure Hunt. The Indigo Disk will only be available to those who complete The Teal Mask.
Players who purchase the bundle before October 31 will receive a gift code. This code will grant a Hisuian Zoroak with the exclusive Happy Hour move. It will have a Charismatic Mark and a Dark Tera type. The codes must be redeemed before February 29, 2024.
Upon purchase of the bundle, players will receive new uniform sets. Depending on which version of the game the player own, the uniforms will have a specific color pattern.
