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.

Pokemon Name: Fidough
Type: Fairy

  • Own Tempo - This Pokémon has its own tempo, and that prevents it from becoming confused.

When these Pokémon become excited, they intimidate their opponents by puffing up their bodies to appear bigger. Fidough ferments things in its vicinity using the yeast in its breath.

Pokemon Name: Cyclizar
Type: Dragon / Normal

  • Shed Skin - The Pokémon may heal its own status conditions by shedding its skin.

Pokedex Description: This Pokémon has lived in many households in the Paldea region since ancient times. It has a mild disposition, and people riding Cyclizar are a very common sight. It appears Cyclizar don't mind being ridden because the warmth of a rider helps stave off the cold. Cyclizar can sprint at over 120 km/h while carrying a human. Its extremely hard head and thick, lithe tail are not only useful for maintaining balance and absorbing shocks while sprinting—they also provide effective ways to attack during battles.


Pokemon Name: Grafaiai
Type: Poison / Normal

  • Unburden - Boosts the Speed stat if the Pokémon's held item is used or lost.
  • Poison Touch - May poison a target when the Pokémon makes contact.

Pokedex Description: Grafaiai is nocturnal. Once the sun sets, it licks its hands and fingers to cover them in poison, then uses them to draw patterns on the trees in its territory. The poisonous saliva it uses to paint paralyzes Bug Pokémon, which are drawn to the saliva’s sweet, fragrant scent. When dawn draws near, Grafaiai goes to collect any incapacitated prey. This Pokémon specializes in using its poisonous saliva—which changes color depending on what the Pokémon eats—to attack foes by spitting at them or by slashing at them after coating its claws with the saliva. When Grafaiai senses danger, its poison rapidly becomes concentrated, resulting in a potent toxin that, once absorbed, will immobilize a victim for three whole days.
