Pokemon Scarlet and Violet starters revealed

Pokemon Unite, Pokemon Masters EX, Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl, and Pokemon Legends: Arceus were all featured in the latest Pokemon Presents, which revealed a tonne of new content for a variety of titles.

The "one more thing" announcement, on the other hand, was the reveal of Pokemon Scarlet and Violet, the much-awaited Pokemon Gen 9 titles.

Back in February 2021, Pokemon Legends Arceus was introduced to the fans and it was declared that the game would be released in 2022. However, it created the impression that Pokemon's 9th gen would be at a loss and will not get a release for the first time in the three-year cycle.

However, soon after the delay rumors, leakers claimed that Pokemon Gen 9 is indeed in development and it could release soon after the Sinnoh open-world title. And now thanks to the latest Pokemon Presents event, we have finally got the Pokemon Gen 9, or now named Pokemon Scarlet and Violet trailer.

There isn't a lot of information about these two titles at the time of writing, yet the trailer depicts a setting that appears to be more open than previous mainline Pokemon games, and more akin to Pokemon Legends: Arceus.

The official website has also revealed the Pokemon Scarlet and Violet starters, so let's head over to its details.

Pokemon Scarlet and Pokemon Violet

Pokemon Scarlet and Pokemon Violet, two new Pokémon chapters in the series, have been revealed via the latest Pokemon Presents event along with several Pokemon that were confirmed to be in the game during the trailer.

Pokemon Scarlet and Violet starters - partner Pokemon

In the Pokemon Scarlet and Violet trailer, some of the returning Pokemon are shown, but the only new Pokemon revealed are the new starters. The names of these starters were missing in the trailer, however, they were announced at the launch of the game's official website.

These Pokémon cover numerous locations and the name of these three new Pokemon Scarlet and Violet starters are:

  • Sprigatito, a grass type cat
  • Fuecoco, a fire type crocodile
  • Quaxly, a water type

Surprisingly, they are listed as 'partner Pokemon' rather than Pokemon Scarlet and Pokemon Violet starters on the game's official website.

The website detailed a few aspects of these Pokemon Scarlet and Violet starters where it was revealed that Sprigatito is the English name for the grass starter, which is a green cat with a leaf design on its face and a leaf-shaped tail (Nyaoha in Japanese). It is simply known as the Grass Cat Pokemon, stands 1'4" tall, weighs 9 pounds, and has the Overgrow ability.

The Fire Starter gives off a vibe of being a mixture of an apple and a crocodile, having an English name, Fuecoco and Hogeeta in Japanese. The devs have classified the Fire starter as Fire Croc Pokemon that stands at the same height as Sprigatito but weighs 21.6 pounds, almost 12 lbs more than Sprigatito, and has the Blaze ability.

The Water-type Duck, whose name is Quaxly, is the next Pokemon Scarlet and Violet starter. Quaxly is known as Kuwassu in Japanese and is a tidy Pokemon who stands 1.8 inches taller, weighs 13.4 pounds, has a simple design but a huge blue hat along with the Torrent ability.

Fans will be able to choose one of the three starters at the beginning of Pokemon Scarlet and Violet, although they could always trade for the others if they desire them.

The following is a complete list of Pokémon in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet starters:

  • Blissey
  • Cherubi
  • Clauncher
  • Combee
  • Drifloom
  • Fuecoco
  • Hoppip
  • Larvitar

Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet were the only two new Pokémon games announced as part of Pokémon Presents, and the trailer finished with an image identifying the games as "An all-new entry in the Pokémon series releasing worldwide in Late 2022."

We may expect the next game to be released on a Thursday in November, based on previous release cycles. If we were to predict, the 11th or 18th of November 2022 appears to be a good choice.

This was everything revealed about Pokemon Gens 9 or Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet and its starters. Keep visiting for more details that will be coming soon.
