First, we have Sprigatito, the capricious, attention-seeking Grass Cat Pokemon. It is telling me this Pokemon might be close to Rowlet evolving to a Grass/Ghost type, given its design. Given how it looks like, we can infer that it will evolve to a larger feline stalking its prey, getting ready to pounce anytime. We also have our laid-back Fire Croc Pokemon, Fuecoco. Fuecoco seems to be like Totodile, except its Fire-type version, given how spunky and happy-go-lucky it looks. With its bulkiness, it might grow into a Fire/Fighting type like Emboar or grow into a Fire/Dark like how Krookodile looks. Last is we have Quaxly, the earnest and tidy Duckling Pokemon. It’s easy to say that the Pokemon would grow into a Water/Flying type given his design. The Pokemon looks to have a cap on like a uniform. This might be referenced to something like a commander of a ship or even a delivery service like how storks are perceived.

Pokemon Scarlet and Violet is said to be released late 2022. The announcement given to us in Pokemon Day about the next mainline in the Pokemon Series surprised a lot of fans. While it’s still too early and too little information that the Pokemon Company has revealed to us, we still have most of their games to play while waiting for Gen 9 to be available.
