What Are the Starter Pokemon in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet?

The most we know about the newest entry into the Pokemon series is about the three starters, Sprigatito, Fuecoco, and Quaxly. Each is uniquely named based on the animals that they represent as well as the region they are located in. Here are the three newest Pokemon and their descriptions.

Fuecoco: The Fire Croc Pokemon


Fuecoco is the newest Fire-type Pokemon in Violet and Scarlet. It stands a 1’4” with a weight of only 21.6 pounds. Its ability, Blaze, is common for most starter Pokemon in the series. Blaze is activated when a Pokemon is low on health. It heats up and does more damage with Fire-type attacks when Blaze activates.

As for Fuecoco’s description, it says: “The laid-back Fire Croc Pokemon that does things at its own pace.” Be sure to have some patience for this newest Fire-type if you choose it as your starter.

Sprigatito: The Grass Cat Pokemon


Sprigatito is the newest Grass-type Pokemon in Violet and Scarlet. It stands at 1’4” with a weight of 9 pounds. Its ability, Overgrow, is also common for most starter Pokemon. Overgrow is activated when a Pokemon is low on health. It increases Grass-type damage when the ability, Overgrow, is activated.

As for Fuecoco’s description, it says: “The capricious, attention-seeking Grass Cat Pokemon.” Give lots of tending, loving care to this Pokemon if you choose to bring it along with you for your newest adventure.

Quaxly: The Duckling Pokemon


Quaxly is the newest Water-type Pokemon in the series. It stands at 1’8” with a weight of 13.4 pounds. Its ability, Torrent, is also common with other Water-type starters in the Pokemon series. Torrent is also activated when the Pokemon is low on health. It powers up Water-type moves in a pinch.

As for Quaxly’s description, it says that Quaxly is: “The earnest and tidy Duckling Pokemon.” For a no-nonsense, playthrough, Quaxly is your trusty sidekick through and through.

So far, that is all we have for the newest Pokemon game, Pokemon Scarlet and Pokemon Violet. However, based on the latest trailer for the game, it looks well-refined as Pokemon enters its newest chapter. Which starter will you choose?
