Pokemon Teal Mask Release Date: How to Download It?

It shouldn’t come as a surprise that Pokemon Scarlet & Violet gets its own DLC Expansion Pack since it introduces the ninth generation of Pokemon. Similar to Pokemon Sword & Shield of the eighth generation, the first installment of the Scarlet/Violet DLC is released months before the second.

The Teal Mask and the Indigo Disk are included in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet’s DLC Expansion Pass (The Hidden Treasure of Area). Both cost $34.99. You can get them both from the Nintendo eShop on the Nintendo Switch.

Depending on the region, The Teal Mask is scheduled for release on September 12–13, 2023. To learn the precise time and date of Scarlet/Violet’s DLC, players are urged to keep an eye on the list below. Here are the release dates and times for Pokemon Scarlet and Violet’s first DLC Expansion: The Teal Mask.

Scarlet and Violet from Pokemon Depending on your time zone, The Teal Mask was started to be released late on September 12. Since the game was released simultaneously around the world, some players were able to play it before its scheduled September 13 release date. Based on advertising pictures posted online on Twitter:

The following times (military time) and dates mark the introduction of the Teal Mask DLC:

  • Japan: September 13, 2023 (9:00)
  • Central Europe: September 13, 2023 (3:00)
  • UK: September 13, 2023 (2:00)
  • Pacific Time: September 12, 2023 (18:00)
  • Central Time: September 12, 2023 (20:00)
  • Eastern Time: September 12, 2023 (21:00)

The Treasure Hunt in the base game must have been initiated by the players. This requires visiting Naranja/Uva Academy and completing the three primary Scarlet/Violet quests:

  • Victory Road
  • Path of Legends
  • Starfall Street

The content should be accessible at the designated release periods as long as players have purchased the Expansion Pass and fulfilled the in-game prerequisites. The following materials are part of the Expansion Pass’ Teal Mask section:

  • New Pokemon and new Evolutions
  • New School Uniforms
  • Returning Pokemon from previous generations
  • A new Academy and new Characters

Why Players Expect a Global Release of the Teal Mask?

Since Nintendo hasn’t yet announced any maintenance to the Pokémon Scarlet and Violet online services, the only way to avoid that, Pokémon fans should hope for a global release of The Teal Mask. A staggered release could result in a conflict between game versions for online interactions.

According to a Tweet, The Pokémon HOME services are the only maintenance that has been made public so far. They will be unavailable starting at 7 p.m. CT on September 12 and won’t be back online for up to 24 hours:

Since leaving HOME open would potentially result in data conflicts in online interactions between players with and without The Teal Mask available in their location, this is another indication that the DLC may actually debut on September 12 for some regions.

Take a look at the other games’ release date details we have provided below links:

The Isle of Armor and The Crown Tundra, the two expansions for Pokémon Sword and Shield, were both launched simultaneously in all areas, which provides the final hint. This means that The Teal Mask will have the same outcome unless Nintendo and Game Freak decide to change their intentions.
