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.

Pokemon Scarlet and Violet New Pokemon

First and foremost, we should talk about the Paldean starters, and their evolutions.

  • Fuecoco → Crocalor → Skeledirge
  • Quaxly → Quaxwell → Quaquaval
  • Sprigatito → Floragato → Meowscarada

Now, let’s talk about the brand-new Pokemon introduced in Gen 9. If you’re specifically looking into older Pokemon with new evolutions, you’ll find that information below this list.

Pokemon Scarlet and Violet New Evolutions

In Pokemon Scarlet and Violet, we’ve been privy to some older, classic Pokemon getting all-new evolutions. Some of these are great, while others are incredibly questionable, such as Dudunsparce.

How they managed to make Wooper’s new evolution just as cute as he is, I don’t know.

Pokemon Scarlet and Violet New Paradox Pokemon

Paradox Pokemon are variations on fan-favourite Pokemon that can be found after Pokemon Scarlet and Violet’s endgame, in the Great Crater of Paldea.

Each version of the game has its own exclusive Paradox Pokemon, too.

Pokemon Scarlet Paradox Pokemon

Here are the all-new Paradox Pokemon exclusive to Pokemon Scarlet.

  • Brute Bonnet (Grass/Dark-type Amoonguss)
  • Flutter Mane (Ghost/Fairy-type Misdreavus)
  • Great Tusk (Ground/Fighting-type Donphan)
  • Koraidon
  • Roaring Moon (Dragon/Dark-type Mega Salamence)
  • Sandy Shocks (Electric/Ground-type Magneton)
  • Scream Tail (Fairy/Psychic-type Jigglypuff)
  • Slither Wing (Bug/Fighting-type Volcarona)

Pokemon Violet Paradox Pokemon

Here are the all-new Paradox Pokemon exclusive to Pokemon Violet.

  • Iron Bundle (Ice/Water-type Delibird)
  • Iron Jugulis (Dark/Flying-type Hydreigon)
  • Iron Treads (Ground/Steel-type Donphan)
  • Iron Hands (Fighting/Electric-type Hariyama)
  • Miraidon
  • Iron Moth (Fire/Posion-type Volcarona)
  • Iron Thorns (Rock/Electric-type Tyranitar)
  • Iron Valiant (Fairy/Fighting-type Gallade, or Gardevoir)

There you have it. Those are all the new Pokemon to look out for in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet, and we’ll be sure to add more information to this page as we gradually figure out where to find and how to evolve each monster.

The Pokemon anime is bringing in a pair of new protagonists to replace Ash Ketchum. Earlier today, The Pokemon Company announced that Ash Ketchum would be stepping back as the protagonist of the long-running Pokemon anime after a 25-year journey. While Ash’s story will wrap up in an 11-episode special that will air in 2023, the main Pokemon series would continue with a pair of new protagonists named Liko and Roy, who will explore the Paldea region alongside Sprigatito, Fuecoco, and Quaxly. Also appearing in the new Pokemon anime is a Shiny Rayquaza, who will somehow tie into the plot of the show. You can check out a first look at the new protagonists down below: 

Fans were quick to point out that Liko seems to have some suspicious similarities to Ash Ketchum. Not only do they have the same hair color and a few short curls that resemble Ash’s hair spikes, she also wears a hairpin shaped like the iconic “L” on Ash’s first Pokemon League cap. While Ash has brown eyes, we’ll also point out that Liko has blue eyes just like Serena. 

No other details were given about the new Pokemon anime series, other than that it will kick off in April 2023 after the conclusion of the Pokemon Ultimate Journeys anime series in Japan. Fans will have a few more months to follow Ash on the last leg of his journey before they watch a new generation of protagonist take their first steps in the franchise. 

Let us know what you think about the new protagonists in the comment section and be sure to tune into A Wild Podcast Has Appeared on Monday to get all the news and analysis about this major Pokemon news. 


Pokemon Scarlet and Violet are here and each version has something unique to offer the completionist trainer. If you’re anything like me, you probably want to know the differences between the two versions to inform your purchasing decision (or to know what to look out for in your travels). While each version will have easy access to unique Pokemon not available in other versions, Scarlet and Violet’s exclusives extend beyond that. Players will attend different schools, have a different Professor, and even have different outfits, all unique to their version of the game. Now it’s time to break them down.

Every version difference for Pokemon Scarlet and Violet

Scarlet Exclusives

The following exclusives can only be found in Pokemon Scarlet.

Scarlet Pokemon

Scarlet-exclusive Pokemon

Scarlet trainers will get the legendary Koraidon, Amarouge (Fire/Psychic), Larvitar (Rock), and Stonjourner (Rock). Because Larvitar is listed as exclusive, it’s highly likely its evolutions, Rock-type Pupitar and Rock/Dark-type powerhouse Tyranitar, will also be exclusive.

Other exclusives include the following:

  • Oranguru
  • Stunky -> Skuntank
  • Skrelp -> Dragalge
  • Deino -> Zweilous -> Hydreigon

Scarlet Professor

Pokemon Trainers in Scarlet will be taken under the wing of the commanding woman, Professor Sada.

Scarlet School

Pokemon Trainers in Scarlet will attend Naranja (Orange) Academy.

Scarlet Uniform

Players in Pokemon Scarlet will have white, blue, and orange uniforms to match their Orange academy.

Violet Exclusives

The following exclusives can only be found in Pokemon Violet.

Violet Pokemon

Violet trainers will get the legendary Miraidon, Ceruledge (Fire/Ghost), Bagon (Dragon), and Eiscue (Ice).

Because Bagon is listed as exclusive, it’s highly likely its evolutions, Dragon-type Pupitar and Dragon/Flying-type fan-favorite Salamence, will also be exclusive.

Other exclusives include the following:

  • Passimian
  • Misdreavus -> Mismagius
  • Gulpin -> Swalot
  • Clauncher -> Clawitzer
  • Dreepy -> Drakloak -> Dragapult

Violet Professor

Pokemon Trainers in Violet will be taken under the wing of the commanding man, Professor Turo.

Violet School

Pokemon Trainers in Violet will attend Uva (Grape) Academy.

There’s a pesky rule in Pokemon games that means Pokemon of a certain level will only obey you consistently if you’ve got enough gym badges. That can lead to this vexing experience: You know a Gym Leader battle is coming up, so you spend time training up your party. You evolve your main Pokemon, the quarterback of your team, and take it into battle.

Unfortunately, you got too keen. You’ve made your Pokemon too big and too powerful for your own good, so it rebels against some of your commands. The Pokemon is so powerful that you manage to win thanks to it following just enough of your orders, but phew that was close. 

This scenario is a good metaphor for Pokemon Scarlet and Violet, the biggest Nintendo Switch release of 2022. It’s arguably the most ambitious pair of Pokemon games ever, attempting to fuse Pokemon with a Breath of the Wild-style open world, but Pokemon developer Game Freak may have gotten too keen. The Switch is seemingly not powerful enough to handle the scope of what Game Freak envisioned and, as a result, the game suffers from some serious technical issues.

It feels feeble to yammer on about frame rate issues when talking about a game with the cultural gravitas of Scarlet and Violet, but Pokemon trainers be warned: Things are about to get choppy. The frame rate can stutter at the best of times, and slows to a crawl when you’re in busy areas like towns. The citizens that inhabit these cities often shuffle along like stop-motion animation, missing every second frame. It’s bad enough to make you want to spend as little time as necessary in these locales.

Regular frame rate lags are the biggest technical issue, but not the only ones. Pop-in is rampant. Each area in the world is filled with roaming Pokemon, quarrelsome trainers and gleaming items, but these are sometimes invisible until your character is a few feet away. This open world can look sparse as a result — in spite of the fact that there’s an immense amount to see and do.

That’s a true shame, because Pokemon Scarlet and Violet are, in many ways, the most exciting mainline Pokemon games in years. (That doesn’t count Pokemon Legends: Arceus, a spin-off.) It’s a substantial leap for a franchise known for small steps. Pokemon Scarlet and Violet are still rock solid, but lack the fine-tuning of an all-time great. 

Like the unruly Pokemon that still manages to clinch victory for you, Pokemon Scarlet and Violet end up a net positive. Technical issues aren’t enough to recommend against playing these games. But phew… at times it’s close.

You quickly link up with the Pokemon on your game’s box — Koraidon for Scarlet players, Miraidon for Violet — earning the ability to travel the world by riding on their backs.

On paper, Scarlet and Violet stick to the Pokemon formula that made the franchise a gargantuan success. There are eight gym badges to…

  • Pokémon Scarlet & Violet Minimap Reveals Multiple New Pokémon

The latest trailer for Pokémon Scarlet and Violet had a minimap with three new Pokémon that have yet to be officially announced by Nintendo.

The latest trailer for Pokémon Scarlet and Violet has accidentally revealed three new Pokémon that have yet to be officially revealed by The Pokémon Company. These Pokémon are technically already known to fans, as they have been mentioned in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet leaks that have made the rounds online.

Pokémon Scarlet and Violet take place in the Paldea region, which features brand-new Pokémon, as well as variants and evolutions of existing Pokémon, such as the newly-announced Farigiraf evolution of Girafarig. The Pokémon Company has been gradually unveiling these new Pokémon in trailers, with the three Paldean starter Pokémon being revealed in the announcement video for the games. The identity of many of the new Pokémon and features that have yet to be revealed through leaks, but there are still many details about Pokémon Scarlet and Violet that have yet to be unveiled.

The most recent Pokémon Scarlet and Violet trailer on The Official Pokémon YouTube Channel showed off some of Pokémon Scarlet and Violet‘s open-world features, with the player able to see nearby Pokémon on the minimap. This trailer seemingly revealed more than was intended, though, since the minimap showed Pokémon that have yet to be announced – as seen on the Centro Leaks Twitter page. The minimap showed a Rookidee from Pokémon Sword and Shield, along with three new Pokémon designs.
