Welcome to the Paldea region! | Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet

The Hidden Treasure of Area Zero new Pokémon list

The Hidden Treasure of Area Zero DLC for Pokémon Scarlet and Violet will introduce five new legendary Gen 9 Pokémon to the Pokémon universe. Four of these Pokémon will arrive in Part 1: The Teal Mask, while the fifth, and final, legendary comes in Part 2: The Indigo Disk.

It’s important to note that The Hidden Treasure of Area Zero will also contain over 230 Pokémon from past generatinons who didn’t originally appear in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet. These Pokémon will be spread across The Teal Mask and The Indigo Disk. Since this page is focused upon Gen 9 specifically, we won’t cover which past generation Pokémon are returning, but, if you are interested, visit our guide covering The Hidden Treasure of Area Zero DLC details.

One of the legendary Pokémon introduced in Part 1: The Teal Mask is Ogerpon, who is described as wearing a ‘fearsome’ mask by the official Pokémon Scarlet and Violet website. This mask appears to be decorated with Terastal crystals.

While we’re yet to see what Ogerpon’s face truly looks like, we were given a glimpse at the end of The Hidden Treasure of Area Zero DLC trailer. There you can see that Ogerpon has yellow eyes and what happens to be a thorny vine wrapped around its face. Maybe Ogerpon is quite cute beneath its mask!

The name Ogerpon and the setting of Kitakami seemingly being inspired by Japan suggests that Ogerpon has been inspired by oni – demon-like creatures from Japanese folklore.

Part 1: The Teal Mask will also introduce Okidogi, Munkidori and Fezandipiti. The official Pokémon Scarlet and Violet website explains that these three Pokémon are ‘beloved by the people of the village as heroes’ as they ‘protected the land of Kitakami in the past’. In thanks the villagers created stone statues of these Pokémon.

Okidogi resembles a dog, Munkidori is clearly inspired by monkeys and Fezandipiti could take inspiration from a pheasant. Keeping these three designs in mind, there’s a chance all three Pokémon may be inspired by a character from Japanese folklore, Momotarō.

Born from a giant peach, Momotarō befriended a talking dog, monkey and pheasant on his journey to defeat a band of oni. If these three Pokémon are inspired by Momotarō then maybe they will be connected to Ogerpon in a similar manner in the Pokémon universe…


Okidogi, Munkidori and Fezandipiti.

Terapagos is the legendary Pokémon arriving in Part 2: The Indigo Disk.

Interestingly, this technically isn’t Terapagos’ first appearance since a sketch which looks awfully similar to this Pokémon appears in both the Scarlet and Violet books. The entry accompanying the sketch talks about how the author encountered the Pokémon in the depths of Area Zero and how it resembles a ‘mysterious, brilliant disk.’

Terapagos takes obivious inspiration from turtles and could be a reference to the world turtle, which is the believe that the world is flat and held aloft by four elephants on the back of a turle. (Think of Discworld’s Great A’Tuin.) This idea comes from the fact that Terapagos’ body resembles the geography of Paldea, with the central crystal being Great Crater of Paldea.

Terapagos’ shell is also decorated with the 18 Pokémon type icons and, considering its crystal-like design, we have to wonder if this legendary is connected to Terastallizing…

Pokémon Day 2023 new Pokémon list

Two new Paradox Pokémon were introduced as part of the Pokémon Day 2023 celebrations – Walking Wake and Iron Leaves. The existence of these Pokémon had been hinted at within the pages of the Scarlet and Violet Books of Pokémon Scarlet and Violet.

Outside of trading, Walking Wake and Iron Treads can only be caught through Tera Raids. You can also only have one Walking Wake and Iron Treads per save file, which means, if you already have one of these Pokémon, you can not have another.

Walking Wake and Iron Treads are also only available in Tera Raids for a limited-time period, with the original release window being between Monday, 27th February at 7am PST / 3pm GMT to Sunday, 12th March at 4:59pm PST / 11pm GMT.

  • Weight – 280 kg
  • Ability – Protsynthesis

Walking Wake is a prehistoric version of the Gen 3 legendary Pokémon, Suicune. While it does share some of Suicune’s design elements, like the diamond markings, Walking Wake has a far more dragon-like appearance when compared to the legendary dog.

The official Pokémon Scarlet and Violet website describes Walking Wake as bearing a ‘uniquely shaped set of horns on its forehead’ and that it ‘supports its weight with just its hind legs and walks bipedally.’

Iron Leaves

  • Category – Paradox Pokémon
  • Height – 1.5 m
  • Weight – 120 kg
  • Ability – Quark Drive

Iron Leaves is a futuristic version of Virizon and looks very similar to the Gen 5 legendary Pokémon, with the main difference being how Iron Leaves is clearly a robot.

The official Pokémon Scarlet and Violet website describe Iron Leaves as having ‘a smooth, glossy body that has a metallic texture, and apparently the glowing parts on its forehead and neck sometimes transform to look like longswords.’

The entry for a Female Oinkologne in Scarlet, meanwhile, explains that ‘This is a meticulous Pokémon that likes to keep things tidy. It shrouds itself in a floral aroma that soothes the Pokémon around it.’

Tarountula

  • Type – Bug
  • Category – String Ball Pokémon
  • Height – 0.3 m
  • Weight – 4 kg
  • Ability – Insomnia

This little spider can be caught in both Pokémon Scarlet and Violet.

When you add Tarountula to your Pokédex in Scarlet, its entry will read, ‘The ball of threads wrapped around its body is elastic enough to deflect the scythes of Scyther, this Pokémon’s natural enemy.’

Meanwhile, in Violet, the Pokédex will tell you, ‘The thread it secretes from its rear is as strong as wire. The secret behind the thread’s strength is the topic of ongoing research.’

Spidops

  • Category – Trap Pokémon
  • Height – 1 m
  • Weight – 16.5 kg
  • Ability – Insomnia

Spidops is the final evolution of Tarountula, with the evolution occuring at Level 15.

If you’re playing Pokémon Scarlet, then the Pokédex will tell you, ‘It clings to branches and ceilings using its threads and moves without a sound. It takes out its prey before the prey even notices it.’

Violet players, however, will learn this from the Pokédex – ‘Spidops covers its territory in tough, sticky threads to set up traps for intruders.’

Nymble

  • Type – Bug
  • Category – Grasshopper Pokémon
  • Height – 0.2 m
  • Weight – 1 kg
  • Ability – Swarm

When you caught this Pokémon in Violet, the Pokédex will read, ‘It’s highly skilled at a fighting style in which it uses its jumping capabilities to dodge incoming attacks while also dealing damage to opponents.’

Lokix

  • Type – Bug / Dark
  • Category – Grasshopper Pokémon
  • Height – 1 m
  • Weight – 17.5 kg
  • Ability – Swarm

Lokix is the final evolution of Nymble and you’ll have to reach Level 24 or above for this evolution to occur.

By obtaining a Lokix in Pokémon Scarlet, your Pokédex will gain the following entry, ‘When it decideds to fight all out, it stands on its previously folded legs to enter Showdown Mode. It neutralizes its enemies in short order.’

If you’re playing Violet, however, then your Pokédex will explain, ‘It uses its normally folded third set of legs when in Showdown Mode. This places a huge burden on its body, so it can’t stay in this mode for long.’

Pawmi

  • Type – Electric
  • Category – Mouse Pokémon
  • Height – 0.3 m
  • Weight – 2.5 kg
  • Ability – Static or Natural Cure

On the official Pokémon Scarlet and Violet website, Pawmi is described as follows ‘Not only is the fur that covers its body good insulation against the cold, but it also serves the purpose of storing electricity.

  • Category – Mouse Pokémon
  • Height – 0.4 m
  • Weight – 6.5 kg
  • Ability – Static or Natural Cure

Pawmo is the second evolution of Pawmi, with the evolution occuring at Level 18 or above.

When you obtain a Pawmo in Scarlet, the Pokédex explains that, ‘When its group is attacked, Pawmo is the first to leap into battle, defeating enemies with a fighting technique that utilizes electric shocks.’

Trainers playing Violet, however, will find the Pokédex saying this about Pawmo – ‘Pawmo uses a unique fighting technique in which it uses its forepaws to strike foes and zap them with electricity from its paw pads simultaneously.’

Pawmot

  • Type – Electric / Fighting
  • Category – Hands-On Pokémon
  • Height – 0.9 m
  • Weight – 41 kg
  • Ability – Volt Absorb or Natural Cure

Pawmot is the final evolution of Pawmi and, if you want to get this Pokémon, then you need to walk 1000 steps in Let’s Go mode with Pawi before levelling it up.

Once you’ve obtained a Pawmot in Scarlet, the Pokédex will read, ‘This Pokémon normally is slow to react, but once it enters battle, it will strike down its enemies with lightning-fast movements.’

If you’re playing Violet, however, you will learn this from Pawmot’s Pokédex entry, ‘Pawmot’s fluffy fur acts as a battery. It can store the same amount of electricity as an electric car.’

Tandemaus

  • Type – Normal
  • Category – Couple Pokémon
  • Height – 0.3 m
  • Weight – 1.8 kg
  • Ability – Run Away or Pickup

Tandemaus can be caught in both Pokémon Scarlet and Violet.

If you catch these pair of mice in Scarlet, the Pokédex will read, ‘Exhibiting great teamwork, they use their incisors to cut pieces out of any material that might be useful for a nest, then make off with them.’

Players in Violet, however, will learn this about Tandemaus from the Pokédex, ‘The pair sticks together no matter what. They split any food they find exactly in half and then eat it together.’

Maushold

  • Type – Normal
  • Category – Family Pokémon
  • Height – 0.3 m
  • Weight – 2.3 kg or 2.8 kg (Form dependant)
  • Ability – Friend Guard or Cheek Pounch

Maushold evolves from Tandemaus at Level 25, but you won’t watch this evolution occur. It’s form, however, can differ after the evolution occurs.

Since Maushold has two different forms – one where they had two children and a second where they’ve only had one – the Pokédex has specific entries for both forms. In Scarlet, the entry for one child read: ‘They build huge nests with many rooms that are used for different purposes, such as eating and sleeping.’

The entry for a Maushold with two children in Scarlet read, ‘The two little ones just appeared one day. The group might be a family of related Pokémon, but nobody knows for sure.’

Fidough

  • Type – Fairy
  • Category – Puppy Pokémon
  • Height – 0.3 m
  • Weight – 10.9 kg
  • Ability – Own Tempo

On the official Pokémon Scarlet and Violet website, Fidough is described as having ‘moist, smooth skin’ which has ‘elastic qualities and is both firm and soft at the same time.’ This skin allows Fidough to intimidate its enemies by ‘puffing up their bodies to appear bigger.’

The website continues to explain that ‘Fidough ferments things in its vicinity using the yeast in its breath. Said yeast is useful for cooking, so this Pokémon has been protected by people since long ago.’

Really sounds like we’ve got a dough dog on our hands…

Dachsbun

  • Type – Fairy
  • Category – Dog Pokémon
  • Height – 0.5 m
  • Weight – 14.9 kg
  • Ability – Well-Baked Body

Dachsbun is the final evolution for Fidough, with the evolution occuring at Level 26 or above.

In Scarlet, the Pokédex entry references Dachsbun baked good nature, ‘The pleasant aroma that emanates from this Pokémon’s body helps wheat grow, so Dachsbun has been treasured by farming villages.’

Smoliv

  • Type – Normal/Grass
  • Category – Olive Pokémon
  • Height – 0.3 m
  • Weight – 6.5 kg
  • Ability – Early Bird

On the official Pokémon Scarlet and Violet website, Smoliv is described as follows ‘The oil that comes out of its head has a very strong bitter taste, and it is not suitable for consumption.

  • Type – Grass / Normal
  • Category – Olive Pokémon
  • Height – 0.6 m
  • Weight – 11.9 kg
  • Ability – Early Bird

Dolliv is the second evolution of Smoliv, with the evolution happening at Level 25 or above.

Once you’ve added Dolliv to your Pokédex in Scarlet, it will read, ‘Dolliv shares its tasty, fresh-scented oil with others. This species has coexisted with humans since times long gone.’

Meanwhile, if you’re playing Violet, the Pokédex will read, ‘It basks in the sun to its heart’s content until the fruits on its head ripen. After that, Dolliv departs from human settlements and goes on a journey.’

Arboliva

  • Type – Grass / Normal
  • Category – Olive Pokémon
  • Height – 1.4 m
  • Weight – 48.2 kg
  • Ability – Seed Sower

Arboliva is the final evolution of Smoliv and Dolliv evolves into this Pokémon at Level 35 or above.

This Pokémon’s Pokédex entry in Scarlet reads, ‘This calm Pokémon is very compassionate. It will share its delicious, nutrient-rich oil with weakened Pokémon.’

Meanwhile, the Violet Pokédex claims, ‘This Pokémon drives back enmies by launching its rich, aromatic oil at them with enough force to smash a boulder.’

Squawkabilly

  • Type – Normal / Flying
  • Category – Parrot Pokémon
  • Height – 0.6 m
  • Weight – 2.4 kg
  • Ability – Intimidate or Hustle

While Squawkabilly doesn’t evolve, it does have four different forms – Blue, Green, Yellow and White. Each of these forms has its own Pokédex entry in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet.

The Green Squawkabilly Pokédex entry in Scarlet explains that ‘These Pokémon prefer to live in cities. They form flocks based on the color of their feathers, and they fight over territory.’ While, in Violet, this Squawkabilly form’s Pokédex entry reads, ‘Green-feathered flocks hold the most sway. When they’re out searching for food in the mornings and evenings, it gets very noisy.’

Nacli

  • Type – Rock
  • Category – Rock Salt Pokémon
  • Height – 0.4 m
  • Weight – 16 kg
  • Ability – Sturdy or Purifying Salt

Nacli is inspired, unsurprisingly inspired by rock salt and, in Pokémon Scarlet, it’s Pokédex entry reads, ‘It was born in a layer of rock salt deep under the earth. This species was particularly treasured in the old days, as thye would share precious salt.’

Naclstack

  • Type – Rock
  • Category – Rock Salt Pokémon
  • Height – 0.6 m
  • Weight – 105 kg
  • Ability – Sturdy or Purifying Salt

Naclstack evolves from Nacli at Level 24 and it does look like it belongs in Minecraft.

If you add Naclstack to your Pokédex in Pokémon Scarlet, its entry will read, ‘This Pokémon dry cures its prey by spraying salt over them. The curing process steals away the water in the prey’s body.’

Garganacl

  • Type – Rock
  • Category – Rock Salt Pokémon
  • Height – 2.3 m
  • Weight – 240 kg
  • Ability – Sturdy or Purifying Salt

Garganacl evolves from Naclstack at Level 38 and continues the ‘Looks like Minecraft’ trend of the Nacli evolution line.

The Pokédex in Pokémon Scarlet will explain that ‘Garganacl will rub its fingertips together and sprinkle injured Pokémon with salt. Even severe wounds will promptly heal afterwards.’ (Hard to imagine that this process isn’t painful…)

Charcadet

  • Type – Fire
  • Category – Fire Child Pokémon
  • Height – 0.6 m
  • Weight – 10.5 kg
  • Ability – Flash Fire

While Charcadet appears in both Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, which Pokémon it can evolve into depends on the version you’re playing.

After you’ve caught this Pokémon in Scarlet, its Pokédex entry will read, ‘Burnt charcoal came to life and become a Pokémon. Possessing a fiery fighting spirit, Charcadet will battle even tough opponents.’

Armarouge

  • Type – Fire / Psychic
  • Category – Fire Warrior Pokémon
  • Height – 1.5 m
  • Weight – 85 kg
  • Ability – Flash Fire

Armarouge will be exclusive to Pokémon Scarlet and evolves from Charcadet after using the Auspicious Armor on it.

According to the official Pokémon Scarlet and Violet website, Armarouge’s armor once ‘belonged to a distinguised warrior, and is the source of the energy used for its Psychic-type moves’ and it ‘uses the psychic capabilities of this armor to control the fire energy within its body and unleash attacks. This is a Pokémon who believes in a fair fight and will take on any challenger no matter how powerful they are.

Armarouge can learn the move, Armor Cannon. This attack may lower its Defense and Special Defense, but its also one of the most powerful moves Armarouge can learn, so, if you want this Pokémon in your team, its worth using.

Ceruledge

  • Type – Fire / Ghost
  • Category – Fire Blades Pokémon
  • Height – 1.6 m
  • Weight – 62 kg
  • Ability – Flash Fire

Ceruledge will be exclusive to Pokémon Violet and evolves from Charcadet after the Malicious Armor is used upon it.

The official Pokémon Scarlet and Violet website describes Ceruledge as wearing ‘an old set of armor steeped in grudges and wields blades made of fire and ghost energy.’ Due to these blades, Ceruledge prefers close-quarters combat and will do anything, including sneak attacks, to win a battle. You’ll want to avoid those blades too, because your life energy will flow from any cut they leave.

Ceruledge can learn the move, Bitter Blade. This attack absorbs the HP of Ceruledge’s foe – restoring up to half the damage taken by the opponent.

Tadbulb

  • Type – Electric
  • Category – EleTadpole Pokémon
  • Height – 1.6 m
  • Weight – 62 kg
  • Ability – Static or Own Tempo

This electric tadpole can often be found near water sources across the Paldea region.

After you catch in Pokémon Scarlet, your Pokédex will explain that, ‘Tadbulb shakes its tail to generate electricity. If it senses danger, it will make its head blink on and off to alert its allies.’

Bellibolt

  • Type – Electric
  • Category – EleFrog Pokémon
  • Height – 1.2 m
  • Weight – 113 kg
  • Ability – Electromorphosis or Static

Bellibolt evolves from Tadbulb after a Thunder Stone is used upon it.

Iono – the electric-type Gym Leader of the Paldea region – introduced us to Bellibolt during one of her live streams.

According to the official Pokémon Scarlet and Violet website, Bellibolt ‘expands and contracs its elastic body to generate electricity in an organ that looks like a belly button.’ This electricity is then ‘discharged from the two bumps on eiher side of its head that resemble eyeballs.’ Its eyes are, in fact, the yellow ovals above its mouth!

Finally, Bellibolt brings a new ability to the Pokémon series – Electromorphosis. This ability causes Bellibolt to become charged when hit by an enemy attack, which, in turn, boosts the power of the next electric-type move it uses.

Wattrel

  • Type – Electric / Flying
  • Category – Storm Petrel Pokémon
  • Height – 0.4 m
  • Weight – 3.6 kg
  • Ability – Volt Absorb or Wind Power

  • Height – 1.4 m
  • Weight – 38.6 kg

Kilowattrel evolves from Wattrel at Level 25.

Its Pokedex entry in Pokémon Scarlet reveals some interesting facts about this Pokémon, ‘Kilowattrel inflates its throat sac to amplify its electricity. By riding the wind, this Pokémon can fly over 430 miles in a day.’

Maschiff

  • Type – Dark
  • Category – Rascal Pokémon
  • Height – 0.5 m
  • Weight – 16 kg
  • Ability – Run Away or Intimidate

Maschiff is both a Pokémon and a very good dog. If you decide to catch this Pokémon in Pokémon Scarlet, its Pokédex entry will say, ‘It always scowls in an attempt to make opponents take it seriously, but even crying children will burst into laughter when they see Maschiff’s face.’

Mabosstiff

  • Type – Dark
  • Category – Boss Pokémon
  • Height – 1.1 m
  • Weight – 61 kg
  • Ability – Intimidate or Guard Dog

Mabosstiff evolves from Maschiff at Level 30.

When you add Mabosstiff to your Pokédex in Pokémon Scarlet, you will learn that ‘This Pokémon can store energy in its large dewlap. Mabosstiff unleashes this energy all at once to blow away enemies.’

Shroodle

  • Type – Poison / Normal
  • Category – Toxic Mouse Pokémon
  • Height – 0.2 m
  • Weight – 0.7 kg
  • Ability – Unburden or Pickpocket

When you catch Shroodle in Pokémon Scarlet, its Pokédex entry will read, ‘Though usually a mellow Pokémon, it will sink its sharp, poison-soaked front teeth into any that anger it, causing paralysis in the object of its ire.

Grafaiai

  • Type – Poison / Normal
  • Category – Toxic Monkey Pokémon
  • Height – 0.7 m
  • Weight – 27.2 kg
  • Ability – Unburden or Poison Touch

Grafaiai evolves from Shroodle at Level 28.

The official Pokémon Scarlet and Violet website describes Grafaiai as a ‘moody Pokémon’ who prefers to ‘roam alone’ and is ‘constantly caught up in territorial struggles with other Pokémon.’

The paint seen in Grafaiai’s reveal trailer is actually posionous saliva, which ‘paralyzes Bug Pokémon’ that ‘are drawn to the salvia’s sweet, fragrant scent.’ Once these Pokémon have been, the official website claims Grafaiai collect them, which sounds an awful lot like eatting them to me.

Bramblin

  • Type – Grass / Ghost
  • Category – Tumbleweed Pokémon
  • Height – 0.6 m
  • Weight – 0.6 kg
  • Ability – Wind Rider

Bramblin is a haunted piece of tumbleweed and, if you catch it in Pokémon Scarlet, you’ll learn how it came into existence, ‘A soul unable to move on to the afterlife was blown around by the wind until it got tangled up with dried grass and became a Pokémon.’

Brambleghast

  • Type – Grass / Ghost
  • Category – Tumbleweed Pokémon
  • Height – 1.2 m
  • Weight – 6 kg
  • Ability – Wind Rider

Brambleghast evolves from Bramblin after you’ve walked 1000 steps with Bramblin in Let’s Go mode and then levelled up the Pokémon.

No matter how you obtain Brambleghast in Pokémon Scarlet, its Pokédex entry will read, ‘It will open the branches of its head to envelop its prey. Once it absorbs all the life energy it needs, it expels the prey and discards it.

Toedscool

  • Type – Ground / Grass
  • Category – Woodear Pokémon
  • Height – 0.9 m
  • Weight – 33 kg
  • Ability – Mycelium Might

Toedscool is a reimagined version of Tentacool from Gen 1, but, rather than having a set of tentacles, it has two funky little legs.

After adding Toedscool to your Pokédex in Pokémon Scarlet, you’ll learn that, ‘Toedscool lives in muggy forests. The flaps that fall from its body are chewy and very delicious.’ (I’ll take the games word on that…)

Toedscruel

  • Type – Ground / Grass
  • Category – Woodear Pokémon
  • Height – 1.9 m
  • Weight – 58 kg
  • Ability – Mycelium Might

Toedscruel evolves from Toedscool at Level 30.

From Toedscruel’s Pokémon Scarlet Pokédex entry, you can learn that ‘These Pokémon gather into groups and form colonies deep within forests. They absolutely hate it when strangers approach.’

Klawf

  • Type – Rock
  • Category – Ambush Pokémon
  • Height – 1.3 m
  • Weight – 79 kg
  • Ability – Anger Shell or Shell Armor

Klawf is a crab who enjoys climbing onto cliffs so it can ambush its prey. According to the official Pokémon Scarlet and Violet website, Klawf ‘eventually gets dizzy from the blood rushing to its head’ when hanging upside down on cliffs, so it doesn’t stay in this position for long.

Avoiding Klawf’s claws is a must, because, once caught, this Pokémon’s prey can not escape its grasp. Klawf ‘uses one claw to hold its opponent in place while using the other to break its guard and hit it where it hurts.’ These claws are also considered a valuable cooking ingredient in the Paldea region – maybe they go well with a side of Slowpoke tails?

The Anger Shell is a new Ability to the Pokémon series where, when Pokémon’s HP drops to half or less, it becomes angry. In this state, the Pokémon’s Defense and Special Defense are lowered, but its Attack, Special Attack and Attack recieve a boost.

Capsakid

  • Type – Grass
  • Category – Spicy Pepper Pokémon
  • Height – 0.3 m
  • Weight – 3 kg
  • Ability – Chlorophyll or Insomnia

When you add Capsakid to your Pokédex in Pokémon Scarlet, you’ll learn that, ‘The more sunlight this Pokémon bathes in, the more spicy chemicals are produced by its body, and thus the spicier its moves become.’

Scovillain

  • Type – Grass / Fire
  • Category – Spicy Pepper Pokémon
  • Height – 0.9 m
  • Weight – 15 kg
  • Ability – Chlorophyll or Insomnia

You must use a Fire Stone on Capsakid to evolve it into Scovillain.

Whether you catch Scovillain, trade for it or evolve Capsakid, it’s Pokédex entry in Pokémon Scarlet will read, ‘The red head converts spicy chemical into fire energy and blasts the surrounding area with a super spicy stream of flame.’

Rellor

  • Type – Bug
  • Category – Rolling Pokémon
  • Height – 0.2 m
  • Weight – 1 kg
  • Ability – Compound Eyes

Rellor, and its evolution, are inspired by dung beetles and its Pokédex entry in Pokémon Scarlet references this, ‘This Pokémon creates a mud ball by mixing sand and dirt with psychic energy. It treasures its mud ball more than its own life.’

Rabsca

  • Type – Bug / Psychic
  • Category – Rolling Pokémon
  • Height – 0.3 m
  • Weight – 3.5 kg
  • Ability – Synchronize

Rabsca evolves from Rellor after you’ve walked 1000 steps with this Pokémon in Let’s Go mode and, afterwards, levelling it up.

By adding Rabsca to your Pokédex in Pokémon Scarlet, you’ll learn that, ‘The body that supports the ball barely moves. Therefore, it is thought that the true body of this Pokémon is actually inside the ball.’

Flittle

  • Type – Psychic
  • Category – Frill Pokémon
  • Height – 0.2 m
  • Weight – 1.5 kg
  • Ability – Frisk or Anticipation

When you catch this little psychic-type Pokémon in Pokémon Scarlet, its Pokédex entry will read, ‘Flittle’s toes levitate about half an inch above the ground because of the psychic power emitted from the frills on the Pokémon’s belly.’

  • Category – Metalsmith Pokémon
  • Height – 0.4 m
  • Weight – 8.9 kg
  • Ability – Own Tempo or Mold Breaker

Tinkatink has a little hammer that you can learn more about from its Pokémon Scarlet Pokédex entry – ‘It swings its handmade hammer around to protect itself, but the hammer is often stolen by Pokémon that eat metal.’

Tinkatuff

  • Type – Fairy / Steel
  • Category – Hammer Pokémon
  • Height – 0.7 m
  • Weight – 59.1 kg
  • Ability – Own Tempo or Mold Breaker

Tinkatuff evolves from Tinkatink at Level 24.

In Pokémon Scarlet you can learn the following from Tinkatink’s Pokédex entry: ‘This Pokémon will attack groups of Pawniard and Bisharp, gathering metal from them in order to create a large and sturdy hammer.’

Tinkaton

  • Type – Fairy / Steel
  • Category – Hammer Pokémon
  • Height – 0.7 m
  • Weight – 112.8 kg
  • Ability – Own Tempo or Mold Breaker

Tinkaton evolves from Tinkatink at Level 38 and, alongside this evolution, it gains a truly awsome hammer.

No matter how you gain Tinkaton in Pokémon Scarlet, the following entry will be added to your Pokédex, ‘This intelligent Pokémon has a very daring disposition. It knocks rocks into the sky with its hammer, aiming for flying Corviknight.’ (Tinkaton craves violence basically.)

Wiglett

  • Type – Water
  • Category – Garden Eel Pokémon
  • Height – 1.2 m
  • Weight – 1.8 kg
  • Ability – Gooey / Rattled

Wiglett, despite its appearance and name, is not related to Diglett. Appartently it’s all one big conincidence, which, if you ask me, sounds a little suspicious.

Putting my personal Pokémon conspiracy theories aside, you can find Wiglett on the beaches of the Paldea region. There it burrows through the sand and emerges to feed in the ocean. Wiglett is known for having an amazing sense of smell, being able to pick up scents from over 60 feet away according to the official Pokémon Scarlet and Violet website, and, when it sniffs out another Pokémon, it hides beneath the sand.

What no-one knows, however, is how long a Wiglett actually is and what the rest of its body looks like…

Wugtrio

  • Type – Water
  • Category – Garden Eel Pokémon
  • Height – 1.2 m
  • Weight – 5.4 kg
  • Ability – Gooey or Rattled

Wugtrio evolves from Wiglett at Level 26.

Wugtrio is a reimagined version of Dugtrio from Gen 1 and its Pokédex entry from Pokémon Scarlet explains that, ‘It has a vicious temperament, contrary to what its appearance may suggest. It wraps its long bodies around prey, then drags the prey into its den.’

Bombirdier

Bombirdier resembles a stork and, when you catch it in Pokémon Scarlet, its Pokédex entry will read, ‘It gathers things up in an apron made from shed feathers added to the Pokémon’s chest feathers, then drops those things from high places for fun.’

Finizen

  • Type – Water
  • Category – Dolphin Pokémon
  • Height – 1.3 m
  • Weight – 60.2 kg
  • Ability – Water Veil

Finizen has clearly been inspired by a dolphin. (It very much captures the Seel the seal Pokémon vibe.)

When you catch Finizen in Pokémon Scarlet, its Pokédex entry will tell you that ‘It likes playing with others of its kind using the water ring on its tail. It uses ultrasonic waves to sense the emotions of other living creatures.’

Palafin

  • Type – Water
  • Category – Zero Form: Dolphin Pokémon and Hero Form: Hero
  • Height – Zero Form: 1.3 m and Hero Form: 1.8 m
  • Weight – Zero Form: 60.2 kg and Hero Form: 97.4 kg
  • Ability – Zero to Hero

To evolve Finizen into Palafin, you first need to level it up to either Level 37 or higher. Next, you need to use the Union Circle to visit another player’s game and, there, you need to level up Finizen to activate the evolution.

While Palafin’s Zero Form looks incredibly similar to Finizen, switching out a Pokémon for Palafin in battle will transform it into this Pokémon’s Hero Form.

Palafin has two Pokédex entries in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet for both of its forms. The Hero Form Pokédex entry in Pokémon Scarlet explains that ‘This hero of the ocean swims at a speed of 50 knots and saves drowning people and Pokémon.’


Palafin’s Zero and Hero Form.

Varoom

  • Type – Steel / Poison
  • Category – Single-Cyl Pokémon
  • Height – 1.0 m
  • Weight – 35 kg
  • Ability – Overcoat

  • Category – Multi-Cyl Pokémon
  • Height – 1.8 m
  • Weight – 120 kg
  • Ability – Overcoat

Revavroom evolves from Varoom at Level 40.

Its Pokédex entry in Pokémon Scarlet explains that ‘It creates a gas out of poison and minerals from rocks. It then detonates the gas in its cylinders – now numbering eight – to generate energy.’

  • Weight – 63 kg
  • Ability – Shed Skin

The official Pokémon Scarlet and Violet website reveals that Cyclizar have ‘lived in many households in the Paldea region since ancient times’ and that seeing people riding Cylizar is a ‘very common sight’ in the region. Thankfully, it seems like ‘Cyclizar don’t mind being ridden because the warmth of a rider helps stave off the cold.’

Clyclizar can also use the new move Shed Tail, which allows this Pokémon to use its HP to create a substitute before switching places with another Pokémon in your party.

Interestingly, Cyclizar resembles the legendary Pokémon Koraidon and Miraidon…

  • Category – Ghost Dog Pokémon
  • Height – 0.6 m
  • Weight – 35 kg
  • Ability – Pickup

Greavard is a good boy from the great beyond!

According to the official Pokémon Scarlet and Violet website, Greavard, like good dogs, has ‘such a friendly and affectionate personality that paying it even the slightest bit of attention will make it so overjoyed that it will follow you wherever you go.’ Sadly, ‘Greavard will slowly and inadvertently absorb the life-force of those around it, so it’s best not to play with it too much.’

The candle atop Greavard’s head brings Litwick to mind and this little light can be seen on the surface when Greavard sleeps beneath the ground – quite fitting for a ghost-type who’s name resembles graveyard.

Houndstone

  • Type – Ghost
  • Category – Ghost Dog Pokémon
  • Height – 2 m

Greavard evolves into Houndstone when it reaches Level 30 or higher at night.

  • Height – 4.5 m
  • Weight – 700 kg
  • Ability – Thick Fat / Slush Rush

Cetitan evolves from Cetoddle after an Ice Stone is used on it.

The official Pokémon Scarlet and Violet website describes Cetitan as needing to have tough muscles to ‘support their immense bodies, and physical attacks using their bodies have incredible power.’ It also migrates around the snowy regions of Paldea and is ‘protected by a thick layer of subcutaneous fat.’

Cetitan also has five horns, with the official website noting that ‘the horn on the upper jaw is able to gather ice energy, making the surrounding temperature extremely low and freezing the area around the Pokémon.’

Veluza

Tatsugiri has three different forms in both Pokémon Scarlet and Violet – Curly, Droppy and Stretchy – and, depending on the form, there will a raise to the Attack, Defence or Speed stat.

Each of these forms have their own Pokédex entry in both games, with the Pokédex entry for Curly Form Tatsugiri reading: ‘This is a small dragon Pokémon. It lives inside the mouth of Dondozo to protect itself from enemies on the outside.’

Meanwhile, Violet’s Pokédex entry informs us on Clodsire’s habitat: ‘It lives at the bottom of ponds and swamps. It will carry Wooper on its back and ferry them across water from one shore to the other.’

  • Ability – Cud Chew / Armor Tail

Farigiraf is the evolved form of the wonderful Girafarig from Gen 2.

If you haven’t noticed already, this Pokémon is inspired by giraffes and, as part of the evolution process, Girafarig’s sentient tail has merged with Farigiraf’s neck. According to the official Pokémon Scarlet and Violet website, this has connected both of Farigiraf’s brains ‘through thick nerves, increasing its psychic energy, and it can emit psychic waves from the antennae on its head.’

Farigiraf also brings two new abilties to the series – Armor Tail and Cud Chew. Armor Tail prevents opposing Pokémon from using priority moves, while Cud Chew allows Pokémon holding a Berry to eat it at the beginning and ending of a turn, which means you receive its effects twice.

  • Ability – Rattled

Gimmighoul has two forms – Chest Form and Roaming Form.

Chest Form Gimmighoul’s can be found living in a chest full of coins. According to the official Pokémon Scarlet and Violet website, while this chest ‘provides them with a solid defense,’ its weight ’causes Gimmighoul to move slowly.’ Due to this these Gimmighoul’s are often ‘mistake for an anitque and taken home or sold to an antique store.’

Chest Form Gimmighoul can, however, use this to their advantage by using their ‘ghost energy to control its target, forcing them to collect coins.’ Since it hides in locations which don’t see many visitors, Chest Form Gimmighoul’s are able to ‘keep persistent control of those it does manage to encounter.’


Roaming Form Gimmighoul.

Meanwhile, Roaming Form Gimmighoul choose to carry a single coin on their back and can be encountered across the Paldea region. Despite this, no trainer has suceed in catching one, because the Roaming Form Gimmighoul’s ‘run away as soon as a person approachs.’

Roaming Form Gimmighouls have, however, been spotted in Pokémon Go when, on Saturday, 5th November, a number of PokéStops turned gold. When spun, trainers had the chance of collecting a Strange Coin and, after doing so, a Roaming Form Gimmighoul started following them around.

Koraidon and Miraidon

Koraidon and Miradion are the two main Legendary Pokémon for Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, along with being the mascot Pokémon for the games – Koraidon for Scarlet and Miraidon for Violet.

Koraidon is a fighting and dragon-type Pokémon, while Miraidon is an electric and dragon-type creature.

When first revealed, The Pokémon Company stated that, ‘These two Pokémon are said to have powers that far surpass those of other Pokémon, but details about Koraidon and Miraidon are still shrouded in mystery.’

You’ll first encounter either Koraidon or Miradion in the opening hour of your journey. They will, eventually, come to act as a form of transporation. (Yes – if chose to play Pokémon Violet, you will be using a legendary Pokémon as a motorcycle.)

Alongside the abilties to climb, jump higher and dash, there are three different forms of legendary transportation – with Koraidon’s version being referred to as ‘Build’ and Miradion’s as ‘Mode’ in the runup to Pokémon Scarlet and Violet’s release:

  • Sprinting Build or Drive Mode – allows you to travel across Paldea at a faster speed. (Goodbye bicyle!)
  • Swimming Build or Aquatic Mode – traverse any body of water you encounter.
  • Gliding Build or Glide Mode – fly through the sky on the back of a legend!
