Pokemon Scarlet And Violet Insider Shows Off Final Starter Evolutions

Pokemon Scarlet And Violet Insider Shows Off Final Starter Evolutions

From Froakie to Greninja, Charmander to Charizard, and Mudkip to Swampert, we've seen some great starter evolutions across the first eight generations of those adorable 'mon. We've also seen some not-so-great ones (sorry Oshawott), but now, all eyes are on where Pokemon Scarlet and Violet's starting trio will end up.

Since Pokemon Scarlet and Violet was first announced in February, we've become obsessed with the three starters of Sprigatito, Fuecoco, and Quaxly. Although Fuecoco has become an early fan-favourite, we all know that can change with a single evolution. But, just what is this terrific trio destined to turn into? We might have our first tease.

What Are The Pokemon Scarlet And Violet Starter Evolutions?

The Pokemon rumours are kicking into overdrive ahead of Scarlet and Violet releasing in November. Although we've heard there apparently won't be a new Eeveelution, at least we know Sprigatito, Fuecoco, and Quaxly won't be in their original forms for long. A prominent rumour claimed their evolutions could be linked to the popular Chinese Zodiac theory, and now, an insider has seemingly debunked it.

Trusted Pokefan Centro Leaks reportedly has the scoop from a fellow insider, who shared drawings of the starter evolutions. Even though these are just crude fan drawings instead of official artwork, they're our first real indication of what the big three could turn into. 

Previous rumour roundups have claimed Sprigatito's final evolution will be a magic-themed Grass/Dark with two legs, Fuecoco will be a rockstar-themed Fire/Ghost with four legs, and Quaxly will be a dancer-themed Water/Fighting with two legs. The big talking point here is Fuecoco, who looks destined to blow the zodiac theory out of the water. 

 

What Have Fans Said About The Starter Evolutions?

Although we're taking everything with a massive pinch of salt, it's easy to imagine these sketches being accurate representations of their final forms. Not everyone was impressed though. One critic raged, "What the hell is Quaxly's final Evo there? Is he part turtle?" Another added, "Rough sketches? That's a 3 year old's work." A third concluded, "I never hated on Centro and hopefully I won't after this, but what the hell is this bro, this leak stinks."

Elsewhere, we're told this Spanish-inspired region could be called Paldea, Primeape will be getting a long-awaited Fighting/Ghost evolution, and there's a brand-new "worm" Pokemon - for which we also get a hilarious sketch. Unfortunately, we're probably going to have to wait for the next Nintendo Direct to find out more about what's going on with Scarlet and Violet. For now, it's back to designing our arguably superior renditions of what the Gen 9 starters should evolve into.
