The Pokémon Company recently released the latest trailer for Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, revealing new Pokémon, a co-op mechanic, the game’s November 18th launch date and most importantly, two new professors.
Unlike previous Pokémon titles, you’ll have a different professor depending on if you play Scarlet or Violet. Professor Sada is exclusive to Scarlet and Professor Turo is exclusive to Violet. Professor Sada, which is short for ‘pasada’ (the Spanish word for past), wears more prehistoric clothing à la The Flintstones, whereas Professor Turo, whose name is short for ‘futuro’ (the Spanish word for future), is in futuristic gear.
While this information gives an idea of what to expect, what’s more interesting is the thirsty reaction on social media to the new professors — which is entirely understandable.
Below are a few notable takes on Professor Turo and Sada:
