Pokémon Scarlet and Violet’s Gen 9 starters have been revealed and so they embody a cat, a child croc, and a duck. Do you’ve a favourite? I definitely do and it’s not my traditional kind.
The shock reveal of the subsequent mainline video games within the Pokémon sequence comes just a bit over two years since Sword and Defend got here out. Whereas some individuals really feel that’s too early, others are able to dig in and begin planning who to journey with by way of the new video games’ Mediterranean-inspired costal country-side. I, for instance, shall be selecting Fuecoco as a result of he’s cute and likewise I’m morally against utilizing grass Pokémon that aren’t greens or being seen with a duck cosplaying as Donald Duck.
Right here’s what little onerous data we at present have concerning the new starters:
Class: Grass Cat Pokémon
Weight: 9 lbs.
The capricious, attention-seeking Grass Cat Pokémon.
Class: Fireplace Croc Pokémon
Weight: 21.6 lbs.
The laid-back Fireplace Croc Pokémon that does issues at its personal tempo.
Class: Duckling Pokémon
Weight: 13.4 lbs.
The earnest and tidy Duckling Pokémon.
What can we glean from these modest Pokédex entries? Properly for one, Fuecoco is an absolute mini-unit at practically the double the load of the opposite two. “capricious” and “attention-seeking” sounds about proper for a cat-based Pokémon, although hopefully Sprigatito’s feline instincts will make it an unusually aggro grass kind. In the meantime, Quaxly is “earnest and tidy.” Appears like a cop to me.
As you’ll anticipate, the Pokémon fanart neighborhood is already having a area day. The entire starters appear to be getting loads of affection, although I get the impression Fuecoco is a slight favourite in the mean time. In some methods it virtually looks like Charmander 3.0. Hopefully it stays as lovable by way of all of its evolutions.
