Only three brand new Pokémon have been revealed so far for Pokémon Scarlet & Violet – Sprigatito, Fuecoco, and Quaxly, the starter Pokémon.
The Pokémon Company officially announced Pokémon Scarlet and Violet on Pokémon Day in 2022, revealing the game’s starter Pokémon in the process: Sprigatito, Fuecoco, and Quaxly. Very little has been revealed about the games and only Pokémon Scarlet and Violet‘s three starter Pokémon have been announced. The designs of these Pokémon have already received a positive reception from the fanbase and many are eagerly awaiting the chance to take them out into the world on a new Pokémon journey.
While The Pokémon Company might not have revealed a lot of official information about Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, there are some details that fans have been able to work out for themselves. All of the information about the game suggests that its region is based on Spain, making it the third Pokémon region based on a European country. There seems to be some connection to fruit in the game, as there are hints that the scarlet name refers to oranges and the violet to grapes.

The trailer for Pokémon Scarlet and Violet did reveal in-game footage, but it only showed Pokémon that had been introduced in previous games, like Pikachu. As it stands, only the artwork for the starter Pokémon has been revealed. But the official Pokémon website has been more forthcoming with information about them.
Sprigatito Is The Grass-Type Cat Starter In Pokémon Scarlet & Violet
Sprigatito is the Grass-type starter in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet. It’s a green cat-like Pokémon, with leaf patterns running throughout its fur. Its official designation is Grass Cat Pokémon, its height is 1’4, its weight is 9 lbs, and its Ability is Overgrow. The Overgrow Ability increases the Pokémon’s Attack or Special Attack by 50% when using a Grass-type move.
The official description of Sprigatito is “The capricious, attention-seeking Grass Cat Pokémon“. The Sprigatito name is a combination of sprig (a twig from a bush or tree), and the Spanish word for kitten. This isn’t the first time that a cat has been used as the basis for a starter Pokémon, as Litten in Sun and Moon was the Fire-type starter of its generation.
Fuecoco Is The Fire-Type Crocodile Starter In Pokémon Scarlet & Violet
Fuecoco is the Fire-type starter in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet. It’s a red crocodile with yellow squares on its body, two yellow tufts of hair, two black toes, and white fans. Its official designation is the Fire Croc Pokémon, its height is 1’4, it weighs 21.6 lbs, and its Ability is Blaze. The Blaze Ability increases the Pokémon’s Attack or Special Attack by 50% when using a Fire-type move.
