Pokémon Scarlet and Violet new Pokémon

Guides

November 2, 2022  We’ve added Greavard, the latest Pokémon to be revealed for Pokémon Scarlet and Violet.

There’s nothing like a new Pokémon game. The franchise has been around for years, with each new generation adding to the abundance of available creatures, and, unsurprisingly, Pokémon Scarlet and Violet continues this trend. Generation nine has some great, adorable, new monsters that would make any trainer proud.

Therefore, we’ve put together this Pokémon Scarlet and Violet new Pokémon guide, so you know who all of the fresh faces are. Whether or not they stick with you is another story, there are more than 900 Pokémon at this point, and frankly, we struggle to remember them all from generation one, never mind all the ones that follow it.

Since you’re here, it’s safe to assume you’re a ‘mon fan, in which case, you should check out our picks for the best Pokémon games – we are, of course, correct in our selections and will take no questions. We also have some handy Arceus guides, such as Pokémon Legends: Arceus Eevee, Pokémon Legends: Arceus evolution items, and Pokémon Legends: Arceus new Pokémon.

Pokémon Scarlet and Violet new Pokémon

Sprigatito in from of a house and trees

Sprigatito

The first of the Pokémon Scarlet and Violet new Pokémon is Sprigatito, and this adorable feline is the grass-type starter. Just look at that face. Look at it. How could anyone want to fight that sweet little fluff ball? You might win battles purely because no one wants to harm the grassy cat.

Quaxly in front of a house

Quaxly

Well, this little ‘mon has quite the fabulous hat, if we do say so ourselves – a real fashionista. Okay, so Quaxly is the water-type starter, but it becomes a hybrid come its final evolution. We certainly can’t wait to see the flying and water-type hybrid.

Fuecoco in front a house and pool

Fuecoco

Rounding off the new starters is Fuecoco, and it’s safe to say that it’s the most adorable croc to grace a Pokémon game yet. As you can probably guess, Fuecoco is the fire-type starter, and given how incredible final stage fire Pokémon tend to look, we can only imagine its third form will be quite intimidating.

Pawmi

An electric mouse type Pokemon, Pawmi is a small rodent that resembles a hamster with its chubby cheeks. It is used by your friend Nemona, and can have the ability static or natural cure.

Lechonk

Lechonk is normal type, and is categorised as the hog Pokemon, and with its brown fur around its nose, it looks like it could go digging for things in the soil. It is also used by your friend Nemona, and can have the ability aroma veil or gluttony.

Pokemon Scarlet and Violet new pokemon: a pokemon that looks liek a small olive is visible

Smoliv

Smoliv is fittingly, the small olive Pokemon. It’s dual grass and normal typing, and its height is a mere 0.3m. It has the ability early bird and is once again one of the first Pokemon used by your friend Nemona. We love Smoliv, but want to know if it’s okay to eat them?

Fidough

A small dog-like Pokemon who appears to be made out of pastry, Fidough (get it… Fido, Fi-dough) is fairy type and adorable. They are known to puff up their bodies when they are excited and can ferment nearby things with the yeast in their breath, making it very useful for cooking.

New pokemon Greavard, a ghost dog with a candle flame, for Pokemon Scarlet and Violet new Pokemon guide

Greavard

Who’s a good spooky boy? Greavard, that’s who! This pure ghost-type pup is another addition to Pokemon Scarlet and Violet’s new Pokemon roster, making its debut appearance in a special teaser a month before release. We can’t wait to take this ghoulish gem on a little walkies just as soon as we can.

Cetitan

A large ice-type Pokemon, Cetitan is adorned with large, powerful spikes all over its body. Known as the terra whale Pokemon, it builds up huge muscles by lugging its immense body around the rough mountain environments of Palden.

Farigiraf

Johto’s telekinetic giraffe finally has an evolved form in the Paldea region with Farigiraf. Known in the Pokedex as the long neck Pokémon, this evolution seens Girafarig’s fancy tail swap around and turn into a sort of hat. It keeps it’s normal/psychic typing, but we’re excited to see what other changes might be under the hood.

Bellibolt

We love a rotund Pokemon, and this thing looks like Chansey if it were plugged into some serious voltage. Serving as the mascot Pokemon for gym leader Iona, this electric-type might not seem like it can pack a punch, but we’re led to believe there’s much more to this supercharged chonkster to be unveiled in the full game.

Pokemon Scarlet and Violet new Pokemon: text displayed the name of the Pokemon Cyclizar, as well as the dragon/normal typing. Cyclizar is a lizard Pokemon with a wheel in its chest

Cyclizar

A green lizard with a wheel in its chest, Cyclizar looks a lot like the box legendaries Koraidon and Miraidon, and we don’t think that’s a coincidence. Much like Cosmog in Pokemon Sun and Moon, we think Cycilizar will evolve into one of the two legendaries depending on the version of the game you buy, and each representing the theme of past or future respectively. It also has the new unique move known as shed tail, which lets Cyclizar create a substitute, and then swap with a Pokemon in the party. Used effectively, this is sure to be an essential new technique in the Pokemon VGC.

Grafaiai

Based on the long-fingered lemur known as the Aye-Aye, Grafaiai shares the large eyes of its inspiration but has a large tail it uses to paint trees and spread its markings across the forest. “Known as the toxic-monkey Pokémon, it uses it’s poisonous saliva – which changes colour depending on what the Pokémon eats – to attack foes by spitting on them.”

A rock-type crab Pokémon, Klawf appears in the desert areas of Paldea and spend time together in groups. While many are adorable and small, there are rumours of a giant Klawf known as the stony cliff titan, waiting to challenge powerful trainers on their journey.

Armarouge

Known as the fire warrior Pokemon, Armarouge looks like a creature trapped in a suit of armour, with flames coming out of its eyes. It is joint fire/psychic type, and the Pokémon always believes in a fair fight, happy to challenge any opponent no matter how strong they are.

Ceruledge

The fire blade Pokémon, Ceruledge is joint fire/ghost type and is a Pokemon that loves close-quarters combat. it likes to sneak up on opponents, and it wears a suit of armour steeped in grudges while wielding flames embued with fire and ghost energy.

Pokemon Scarlet and Violet new pokemon: a snake like pokemon is visible

Koraidon

The box legendary for Pokemon Scarlet, Koraidon looks like a snake and a dragon mixed with a motorcycle. It seems to take inspiration from the many mythic creatures known as flying serpents, with feathers on its head. We don’t know yet what typing it will have.

Miraidon

The box legendary for Pokemon Violet, Miraidon is objectively better than every other Pokemon announced so far. Look at this thing, it’s like a futuristic hoverbike and a snake had a baby. Both Koraidon and Miraidon are said to have powers that far surpass those of other Pokemon, but details about either are still shrouded in mystery.

Paldean forms

Like previous generations since Pokémon Sun and Moon, the region known as Pokémon Scarlet and Violet Paldea is also host to regional forms of Pokemon. These Pokemon are ones we’ve met in previous regions, but they have evolved and adapted to the region of Paldea, taking on different appearances and in some cases gaining new, unique evolutions.

Paldean Wooper

Dual poison and ground type, Paldean Wooper used to live underwater in the Paldea region back in ancient times. While they are much heavier than regular Wooper, they protect themselves by shooting poisonous liquid.
