A THIRD trailer for Scarlet and Violet has been released, showing even more Pokémon from the upcoming games’ Paldea region than ever before.
Here is everything we know about the Pokémon to be released in generation nine.
One of the new starters.
Sprigatito is the new grass type starter for the Paldea region. It’s known as the Grass Cat Pokémon.
Its Pokédex entry reads: “Capricious and attention seeking, it may sulk if it sees its Trainer giving attention to a Pokémon other than itself.”
Standing at 1’4” and weighing just 9lbs, it has the usual Grass starter ability of Overgrow.
This gives a 50% boost to Grass type moves when its health is below one third.
A new signature move has also been announced for Sprigatito.
Its name and mechanics haven’t been revealed yet, but the Pokémon Company describes it as “a sweet aroma” which releases when Sprigatito kneads.
It is said to have “therapeutic qualities” and will make the opponents “lose their will to battle”.
This could be a mix between moves such as Aromatherapy and Attract.
It has also been announced that its fur is similar to plants.
Sprigatito can photosynthesize through its fur, leading the way for moves such as Solarbeam.
Its Terastillization form shows it with cactus flowers sprouting from its head.
Fuecoco, the Fire starter.
Fuecoco is the new Fire type starter for the Paldea region known as the Fire Croc Pokémon.
Its Pokédex entry reads: “Fuecoco is laid-back and does things at its own pace.
“It loves to eat, and it will sprint toward any food it finds with a glint in its eye.”
It’s the same height as Sprigatito – 1’4” – but much heavier at 21.6lbs.
Like other Fire starters, it has the ability Blaze, which gives a 50% boost to Fire type moves below one third HP.
More details have also been revealed about Fuecoco’s design.
The yellow squares on its front and back absorb heat, which could point to a move such as Overheat.
Fuecoco’s hair is actually fire energy bursting from the top of its head, and more will appear when it is excited.
Its Terastillization form shows it with a lit chandelier sprouting from its head.
Quaxly, the Duckling Pokémon.
Quaxly is the new Water type starter for the Paldea region. It’s known as the Duckling Pokémon.
Its Pokédex entry reads: “This serious-mannered Pokémon will follow in its Trainer’s wake.
“It’s tidy, and it especially dislikes getting its head dirty.”
It’s the tallest of the starters at 1’8” and pretty light at 13.4lbs.
Like other Water starters, it has the ability Torrent, which gives a 50% boost to Water type moves when below one third HP.
Quaxly is known to attack using its strong legs, pointing to moves such as Mega Kick or Hi-Jump Kick.
It could also point to a future Water/Fighting typing.
It is also proud of its hair and looks and a glossy gel coats its body to repel water.
Its Terastillization form shows it with a multi-tiered fountain sprouting from its head.
One of the latest Legendary Pokémon.

The Legendary featured on the Violet box art.

It is a Dragon/Normal type like Drampa.
Cyclizar has the signature move Shed Tail, which allows it to retreat from battle and create a substitute for its teammate.
