There is little information beyond that the two-part Pokemon Scarlet and Violet DLC is scheduled for release this fall and next winter. Packaged under the name The Hidden Treasure of Area Zero, it is reminiscent of the DLC for Pokemon Sword and Shield, The Isle of Armor and The Crown Tundra.
Trying to guess when Pokemon Scarlet and Violet’s DLC will be released by comparing it to the previous game’s downloadable content may be ineffective. Despite being delayed from The Hidden Treasure of Area Zero by at least a few months for each expansion (The Isle of Armor in June 2020 and The Crown Tundra in October 2020), there are a few things to glean from its release schedule and the general success of Scarlet and Violet.
Pokemon Scarlet and Violet’s Rough Launch Likely Delayed Dlc
While the essential experience has been enhanced, Scarlet and Violet had a rocky debut, and performance concerns remain a problem. The release window for Part 1, The Teal Mask, places its release around a year after that initial launch, suggesting that the release had to be pushed back by a few months before its announcement because of a combination of technical issues in the base game and perhaps even ambition for the project.
The release timeframe for the DLC, given that it is planned for the Fall spans late September through early December, with November as a perfect option. About a year after the game’s initial release, Scarlet and Violet’s DLC release maybe Game Freak and Nintendo’s way of signalling the game’s colossal chance to redeem itself after a rocky debut, given that the game is still receiving extensive patches to fix the core game.
\When trying to predict when certain features would be released, the DLC for Sword and Shield comes into play because of how it was released. Both portions of The Hidden Treasure of Area Zero will be removed around four months apart, with June’s release of The Isle of Armor and October’s release of The Crown Tundra.

The Indigo Disk, the sequel to The Teal Mask, is expected to be published between November 2023 and March 2024. An alternate reading of the seasonal window explains the extended wait for the first instalment because the two are released so close together. If two or three months pass between releases, that’s probably right.
To maintain interest in Nintendo’s next console, The Indigo Disk must debut before its rumoured March 2024 release date. Assuming that the March 2024 release date for the new system is accurate, Nintendo will still likely prioritize promoting brand-new games or ports of games that couldn’t run on the Switch above promoting downloadable content for a game already available.
Since the Indigo Disk isn’t intended to stand alone but rather as the second chapter of a broader story arc linking the expansions, this could help maintain interest in the game. The most likely release dates for The Teal Mask and The Indigo Disk are November 2023 and February 2024, respectively, due to the possibility of a short delay of one month between DLC releases.
When Pokemon Scarlet and Violet’s downloadable content finally arrives, it will be a great chance to build upon the game’s strengths and address its flaws.
