Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet are the next games in the Pokémon Series developed by Game Freak. The announcement of Scarlet and Violet was the grand finale of the recent Pokémon Presentation. With no specific release date as of yet, we do know that the games are due out in late 2022.
The trailer itself gave us a few key glimpses into what we can expect from the games. Several beautiful environments were teased, including a bustling town center, and rain-soaked fields inhabited by Psyducks. A lot of different Pokémon were in the trailer, Meowth, Lucario, and Swablu to name just a few. However, we're going to be focusing on an important trio that will be crucial to your adventure.
In this guide, we're going to introduce you to the three starter Pokémon, Sprigatito, Fuecoco, and Quaxly.
Pokémon Scarlet and Violet Starter Guide
Here's everything we know about the three starter Pokémon from the official Scarlet and Violet website. At the moment, nothing else has been revealed about how you meet them or their evolutions.
Sprigatito is a Grass Cat Pokémon who is described as being unpredictable and attention-seeking. It certainly seems that Sprigatito will keep you on your toes but, they can be loyal if you show them the proper amount of attention.
Fuecoco, the fire croc Pokémon, is a laid-back croc that lives life at its own pace. This means that Fuecoco could be a great partner for a relaxed trainer. However, do not be fooled as the croc is a fire-type Pokémon, meaning that its attacks can be powerful when you need them to be.

Quaxly is a duckling Pokémon who is described as being earnest and tidy. This may mean that Quaxly's attacks are precise, even without being evolved, as it sounds like it doesn't enjoy mess or disorganisation. This little determined Pokémon seems like it will be a great partner for any trainer, as its conviction could power its loyalty. It looks like Quaxly will not let you down!
We will update this page as we learn more about the starter Pokémon.
