The new Pokemon generation is here, and as always, that means you have three other starter Pokemon options to choose from. Pokemon Scarlet and Violet doesn’t break too much tradition, once again giving you three adorable creatures that represent the three most fundamental types of the series: fire (Fuecoco), water (Quaxly), and grass (Sprigatito). Before you make your choice, you may want to know more about what they evolved into, and we can help here.
Finally, the final evolutions of all three Pokémon revolve around different types of stage performers. As a result, each of them appears bipedal to some extent. For example, the cute little Fuekoko Skeledirge evolves into a “Singing Pokemon” and its Pokedex entry features the pose of an opera singer.
All three get some unusual subtypes this time around. It’s usually aligned with Fire Fighting, so much so that Pokemon fans joke about the replay, but this time Quaxly’s water evolution gets a Fighting subtype. Fuecoco becomes a Fire and Ghost type, while Sprigatito gets a Grass and Dark combo. They each learn a few other moves as well – for example, Sprigatito eventually learns the Fairy-type Play Rough move.
Whichever one you choose, your opponent will choose the one that is weak to Nemona. So if you pick Sprigatito for example, you’ll regularly fight Nemona and her Quaxly because water is weak to grass. Ultimately, which one you choose will come down to personal preference, and as always there will be plenty of fire, water, and grass Pokemon roaming the wild to fill the gaps in your list.
Sprigatito – Floragato – Meowscarada (Wizard Pokemon) – Grass, Darkness
Fuecoco – Crocalor – Skeledirge (Singing Pokemon) – Fire, Nightmare
Quaxly – Quaxwell – Quaquaval (Dancer Pokemon) – Water, Battle
If you want to have the smoothest early game, Fuecoco is probably the choice. While gyms can technically be taken in any order, their gym leaders will have more and more powerful Pokemon that aren’t compatible with your level. Since the two easiest gyms are Bug and Grass (both of which are weak to fire), Fuecoco will speed you through the early game until you build a bigger monster list. As a bonus, his ultimate Ghost type will help in later matchups against other powerful Psychic and Ghost opponents.
