On February 27, the Pokémon Company revealed its next big release, Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet (aka, the ninth generation of pocket monsters).
The new game, which is set to release later this year on Nintendo Switch, will feature an open-world design similar to Pokémon Legends: Arceus. But unlike that game, it also introduces three new starter Pokémon. Let’s take a closer look...
First up, your new fire-type starter: Fuecoco!
Category: Fire Croc Pokémon
Weight: 21.6 lbs.
“The laid-back Fire Croc Pokémon that does things at its own pace.”
Here’s Sprigatito, the Gen 9 grass-type starter Pokémon!
Category: Grass Cat Pokémon
Weight: 9 lbs.
“The capricious, attention-seeking Grass Cat Pokémon.”
Finally, here’s your water-type starter: Quaxly!
Category: Duckling Pokémon
Weight: 13.4 lbs.
“The earnest and tidy Duckling Pokémon.”
There’s still a lot we don’t know, from starter evolutions to special movies, but Pokémon Gen 9 is already looking great. Which starter will you choose?
