New Pokemon

Pokemon Scarlet and Violet will introduce us to a new set of Pokemons, earlier in the game’s initial teaser trailer we were introduced to the starter Pokemons, Sprigatito,Quaxly, and Fuecoco.

In the new trailer we were introduced to three new Pokemon for us to use.


Pawmi is the region’s “Pika-Clone” , the Pokemon of the new region designed to look similar to the famous mascot of the series Pikachu.

This is evident thanks to the sacs on its cheeks that are described as “ filled with electricity” a common trait and feature shared by Pika-Clones of previous generations. This tiny mouse or cub looking Pokemon is an electric type and can be seen being used by your new rival.


Lechonk, based on the word Lechon or baby pig, this adorable piggy is described as “ appearing to look fat, but is actually muscle built by constantly walking around in search of food”. Already the online community is going wild for this piggy as it is both adorable and funny.


Smoliv, the new cutesy plant Pokemon like budew and bounsweet before in previous regions. Described as having oil so bitter and astringent it will make you flinch. The oil that comes out of its

head has a very strong bitter taste, and it is not suitable for consumption.

Koraidon and Miraidon

The box art legendary duo of generation 9, Koraidon and Miraidon. Currently there is not much information about these two other than their representation of what appears to be the central theme of Pokemon Scarlet and Violet which is tradition versus innovation. Korai translates to ancient and Mirai translates to future. Another noticeable design feature are the wheel like designs on their chest hinting that these Pokemon may be able to turn into vehicles.

Double Pack for Release

A double pack will be released containing both Pokemon Scarlet and Violet will be released on the same day of its individual releases.
