Nintendo released the Pokemon Scarlet and Violet second trailer which showed us more details on the three starter Pokemon. Let us look at the Pokemon Scarlet and Violet starters, their evolutions, and what we know so far.
Pokemon Scarlet and Violet: Starters
The initial release date of Pokemon Scarlet and Violet will be on the 18th of November 2022. A recent second trailer of the new Pokemon Game only revealed a few details that left the fan’s imagination remain guessing in terms of the starter evolutions.
The Pokemon Scarlet and Violet starters have Iberian-inspired names which are Fuecoco, Sprigatito, and Quaxly. There are still no confirmed evolution details for these starters yet.
However, fans let their creative minds do the work to let us imagine what might the evolution of these starters look like. Let us have a look at the base evolution of the three starter Pokemon and the most liked fan-art evolution.
Sprigatito: Grass Cat Pokemon
Nintendo describes Sprigatito as the ‘The capricious, attention-seeking Grass Cat Pokémon.’. The Grass-type Pokemon’s English name is a combination of the words “sprig” and “gatito,” which is the Spanish word for a kitten.
Sprigatito may have been inspired by the Spanish plant “cat thyme,” which has similar characteristics to catnip but has pink blossoms. Sprigatito’s eyes are a similar shade of pink to cat thyme blooms.
- Type – Grass
- Category – Grass Cat Pokémon
- Height – 0.4m
- Weight – 4.1kg
- Ability – Overgrow
When a Pokémon with the Overgrow ability has low HP, the power of its grass-type moves is amplified.

Fuecoco: Fire Croc Pokemon
Fuecoco seems to need a Scoville meter rating due to its red hot and chili-looking colors. On the official Pokémon Scarlet and Violet website, Fuecoco is defined as “the laid-back Fire Croc Pokémon that does things at its own leisure.”
Fuecoco is a combination of the words “fuego” and “coco,” the former of which means “fire” in Spanish. While many people compared Fuecoco to an “apple dragon” (there is an apple in the trailer too), it’s essentially a crocodile with a pepper-like form. Peppers are used in spicy cuisine, in conformity with its Fire-type, which led people to people believing that Fuecoco’s facial markings may lead to an evolution resembling a ghost pepper.
- Type – Fire
- Category – Fire Croc Pokémon
- Height – 0.4m
- Weight – 9.8kg
- Ability – Blaze
When the Pokémon with the Blaze ability has a low HP level, the Blaze ability amplifies the power of its fire-type attacks.
Fuecoco: Fan-Art Evolution
Quaxly: Water Duckling Pokemon
Looks like someone can now rival Psyduck in terms of looks (haha). Well, Quaxly looks more elegant. Nintendo describes Quaxly as ‘The earnest and tidy Duckling Pokémon.’.
Quaxly’s name is most likely inspired by “agua”, the Spanish word for Aqua, with the addition of “quack”, the duck sound. The Pokemon’s “hair” style could be inspired by both crested birds and the quiff haircut.
- Type – Water
- Category – Duckling Pokémon
- Height – 0.5m
- Weight – 6.1kg
- Ability – Torrent
When the Pokemon with Torrent Ability HP is low, the power of his water-type techniques is amplified by the Torrent ability.
