RUMOR: Pokémon Scarlet & Violet DLC to take advantage of new Switch model?

Note: Rumor posts are not confirmed information and should be taken with a large grain of salt. Please consider them false unless officially confirmed. They are shared for enjoyment and fan discussion purposes.

One of the biggest reveals from the Pokémon Presents earlier today was the announcement of DLC for Pokémon Scarlet and Violet. The DLC, The Hidden Treasure of Area Zero, may have been revealed prior to the Presents though — in an online message board post at 4chan.

Post containing Scarlet & Violet DLC information

The post above details information we learned today, including the typing of Suicune and Virizion Paradox Pokémon, the title of the DLC and details about the new Pokémon featured in Part 1 and Part 2 of the DLC.

Of note is the mention of a new Nintendo Switch model which may be able to handle more advanced graphics. It seems like the upcoming Scarlet and Violet DLC, and possibly even the base games, may be able to take advantage of this new hardware. In addition, it looks like we may be able to expect it this winter.

How this will play out and how much of a difference it would make, if true, remains to be seen.
