Pokemon Scarlet and Violet are here, introducing us to the region of Paldea and a new Pokedex packed with 400 Pokemon for you to find and catch, if you’re up to the challenge. That said, over 100 Pokemon are new to Generation 9, are fresh evolutions of fan-favourite Pokemon, or take on new forms as Paradox Pokemon.

Two industry experts discuss Paldea’s starters.

With that in mind, it’s hard to know what to battle or even catch when you aren’t entirely sure what you’re looking for, or which older Pokemon can evolve in new ways. So, we’ve stepped in to introduce you to Pokemon Scarlet and Violet’s brand-new Gen 9 Pokemon and evolutions. Credit for some of the late-game data goes to the excellent Pokemon Database, Serebii.

Without further ado, here are all of Gen 9’s new Pokemon and evolutions in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet.
