At this time we're not aware of the full evolutionary lines for the Pokemon Scarlet and Violet Starters are, as we learn them we'll be adding them to this page. The Starter Pokemon of this region are:


Pokemon Scarlet and Violet Starters
Wars are already being waged across the internet over who will pick the best starter, my money is on Sprigatito

Pokemon Scarlet and Violet New Pokemon


Pokemon Name: Lechonk
Type: Normal

  • Aroma Veil - Protects itself and its allies from attacks that limit their move choices.
  • Gluttony - Makes the Pokémon eat a held Berry when its HP drops to half or less, which is sooner than usual.

Pokedex Description: Lechonk uses its sense of smell to find and eat only the most fragrant wild grasses and the richest Berries. As a result of its dining habits, it has come to radiate an aroma resembling herbs that bug Pokémon dislike. If attacked by an opponent and startled, it will charge forward in a panic.? It may appear fat at first glance, but in reality, the Pokémon’s body is mostly muscle built by constantly walking around in search of food.

Pokemon Scarlet and Violet 3 New Pokemon

Pokemon Name: Smoliv
Type: Grass / Normal

  • Early Bird - The Pokémon awakens from sleep twice as fast as other Pokémon.

Pokedex Description: The oil that comes out of its head has a very strong bitter taste, and it is not suitable for consumption. When startled or attacked, Smoliv will shoot this oil out, slowing its opponent down. It will then seize that moment to run away. In the fruit on its head, Smoliv stores oil made from nutrients it gathers through photosynthesis. As a result, it can go for a week without eating or drinking.? It prefers dry and sunny climates, and it seems to spend its days sunbathing. 



Pokemon Name: Pawmi
Type: Electric

  • Static - The Pokémon is charged with static electricity, so contact with it may cause paralysis.
  • Natural Cure - All status conditions heal when the Pokémon switches out.

Pokedex Description: In addition to the electric sacs in its cheeks, Pawmi has electricity-discharging organs on its forepaws. It generates electricity by rubbing its cheeks, then it shocks its opponents by touching them with the pads on its forepaws. Not only is the fur that covers its body good insulation against the cold, but it also serves the purpose of storing electricity. When it feels uneasy, this cautious Pokémon will begin rubbing its cheeks, preparing itself to discharge an electric shock.
