For gamers looking to make their way into the Paldea Region for the first time, gamers have a more challenging choice than ever before to make when they start their journey into Pokemon Scarlet and Violet. With one of the best starter lineups in recent memory, having to choose between Quaxly, Fuecoco, and Sprigatito is going to be one of the hardest choices that new Trainers will need to make.

But, is there a chance that gamers will be able to find these other starters hiding out in the wild? As you make your way throughout this game, will you find any of the other starting Pokemon hiding out in the wild? With a massive dex of Pokemon to capture, here’s what you need to know about your chances of finding these Starter Pokemon in the wild!

Can You Find Sprigatito, Fuecoco, or Quaxly In The Wild In Pokemon Scarlet And Violet?

With Pokemon Scarlet and Violet following a new path, there are still a few things that this game shares with its previous iterations. While you may be able to explore the world at your own pace, players will find that there is just enough comfort from the previous titles to feel right at home. However, this also means that a few certain parts of the game haven’t been changed around too much.

This also includes the fact that you won’t be to find starter Pokemon in the wild. While this is unfortunate, Starter Pokemon are starter Pokemon for a reason. They may not be the most effective in battle in the long run, but players pick and choose who they want for a very special reason, and it makes their choice more special and exciting when they have a chance to use them throughout the game.

However, if you are looking to get your hands on all of the starters, there are a few different ways that you may be able to make this happen. If you are a patient player and don’t mind starting and restarting the game over, you would be able to start the game, get your starter, transfer it to Pokemon Home, and restart your journey again. This way, you would be able to transfer a starter to your final journey and have all three of them to play with.

Otherwise, if you are looking to get your hands on a starter Pokemon, players will be able to trade Pokemon with other players. Finding someone that doesn’t care too much for their Starting Pokemon, you would be able to offer up something for trade and claim another for your collection. No matter if you’re planning on farming for items, or challenging Gym leaders, gamers will need to have a steady team of monsters, and Starting Pokemon may be exactly what they need.

Pokemon Scarlet and Violet are available now on Nintendo Switch.
