  • Type: Ghost
  • Forms: Chest form and Roaming Form

Some might point out that this tiny Pokemon may be a replicate of the Reddit avatar, but this tiny Ghost-type Pokemon has its own charm. Unlike other pokemon in Scarlet and Violet, Gimmighoul has two forms that players can spot when hunting around Paldea.

Gimmighoul may give you the false countenance of being shy, for it shies away within a treasured chest. The sturdy and durable treasure chests give Gimmighouls a good share of defensive maneuvers.

9. Smoliv

  • Type: Grass/Normal
  • Forms: Dolliv then Arboliva

As the name and picture suggest, Smoliv‘s design was created to resemble a small olive, the fruit that some players enjoy and some do not. However, Smoliv is adorable to such an extent that certainly no player would take steps to cook it.

Smoliv lives in the olive fields of Paldea in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet. One of his known abilities is Early Bird. It allows him to wake up from Sleep in half as many turns as usual.

8. Quaxly

  • Type: Water
  • Forms: Quaxwell then Quaquaval

Quaxly might be the answer for many fans who demanded a decent duck pokemon, one that is better than Psyduck and Ducklett. He may look like a regular duck Pokemon, but its cute little blue webbed feet and hilarious haircut have enchanted many players into picking it.

Quaxly is an amazing design, with a bit of a smug disposition and an adorable look. It’s like how a child looks when they attempt to be serious and grown-up.

7. Greavard

  • Type: Ghost
  • Forms: Houndstone

In our list of Cutest Pokemon in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet, I introduce to you, Greavard. The best loyal and playful ghost dog. Another notably cute addition to the game, this ghost-type dog adores humans and acts like any loyal canine would. While its jagged mouth may be strong enough to crush bones, its ominous sucking of the life force of anyone can be quite horrifying.

However, this shouldn’t diminish a lot from its fun-loving personality. It’s surely one of Gen IX‘s most cute designs, and it has a caring character to go with it.

6. Maschiff

  • Type: Dark
  • Forms: Mabosstiff

Pokemon Scarlet & Violet have introduced several dog-like Pokemons to the roster. But before Greavard, Maschiff must be the cutest among them. This small dark type tries to be threatening yet turns out to be very loveable.

According to Pokemon Scarlet’s Pokedex, Maschiff attempts to make adversaries take it in seriously way by scowling. But even sad children happen to burst into laughter when they see their faces. Well, he is quite a dog I’d love to have.

5. Fuecoco

  • Type: Fire
  • Forms: Crocalor then Skeledirge

Returning to one of the starter Pokemons, Fuecoco is a crocodile-like that fans can’t help but fall in love with. As this Fire-type starting option, this red Pokemon is seen right off the bat in the game accidentally burning an orange when it wheezes. These adorable short-legs is really a  nice option to choose as a starter.

By the way, when Fuecoco meets with food, these short legs will rush toward the smell of treats.

4. Maushold

  • Type: Normal
  • Forms: Tandemaus

No cap, Masuhold is an absolutely wholesome concept for a Pokemon. Masuhold’s are couples that never separate and look adorable. Their species is also called the Couple Pokemon. Unless get weirded out by multiple entities considering one, Maushold is the cutest thing you can experience.

According to Pokedex entries, this family of mice builds nests with a few spaces for various purposes, cooperates, and collaborates.

3. Fidough

  • Type: Fairy
  • Forms: Dachsbun

Fidough is another heart-melting dog species that has a tiny body resembling small bread puns. His entire body sometimes looks like a baked treat ready to go in the oven. This fairy type continues its adorable streak when it evolves into another baked version called Dachsbun.

Fidough was another new Pokémon to be teased early with the Scarlet & Violet trailers, standing out enough to be noticed all the while.

2. Sprigatito

  • Type: Grass
  • Forms: Floragato then Meowscarada

Sprigatito is considered to be the second-best starter to be selected behind Fuecoco, and few can argue that the Grass Cat Pokémon isn’t adorable. I’m sure cat parents didn’t even have a second thought before getting this cutie as a starter.

If its big feline gaze doesn’t convince players, then the lovely fragrance standing is sure to get a person’s attention.

1. Pawmi

Out of all the Pokemon that were introduced in the ninth generation, in our list, Pawmi is the cutest of all. Players were not disappointed by its appearance, as this Electric-type Pokemon keeps on gaining favor with fans for its lovable design. You can also say that Pawmi is the classic Pikachu clone that every game needs

Pawmi is a three-stage evolution line. And one of the cutest Pokemon of all time, without a doubt. With its shaky stance, irately focusing on its own cheeks a fight.
