What Are The Pokémon Scarlet & Violet Starters?

Pokémon Scarlet & Violet have revealed the new starter companions players can team up with in the Gen 9 world of Paldea.

The Pokemon Company has revealed the next generation of games, Pokémon Scarlet & Violet. With the success of Pokémon Legends: Arceus, it was only natural that the company wants to ride on its popularity by showing off mainline games utilizing the same open-world design.

According to the official reveal, these titles will feature various towns with no borders that blend seamlessly into the wilderness. Pokemon can be seen everywhere in the wide-open world, and of course, trainers will need to select from a trio of new starters before they set out.

The Pokémon Company is continuing the starter trinity of Grass, Fire, and Water types Scarlet & Violet with the new starters Fuecoco, Sprigatito, and Quaxly.

Sprigatito is described a “Grass Cat” Pokémon with the typical Grass-type starter ability Overgrow. It is said to be a capricious, attention-seeking Pokémon, common traits in the many felines currently on the Pokémon roster.

The Fire-type starter is a “Fire Croc” Pokémon named Fuecoco. It utilizes the ability Blaze, much like the previous generation fire-type starters. It is said to be laid-back and does things as its own pace, which is perfectly showcased in its design. This Pokémon has beady eyes, a single upper tooth on its large mouth, and stubby arms, giving it the appearance of a baby Pokémon marching to the beat of its own drum.

Finally, Pokémon Scarlet & Violet trainers are introduced to a new “Water Duckling” Pokémon named Quaxly. It has an incredibly cute design, with what looks to be a lily pad doubling as a hat. This Pokémon also begins with the Torrent ability used by all previous water-type starters. It’s described as earnest and tidy, traits that set it apart from the other two starters revealed alongside it.
