The Pokemon Scarlet and Violet Pokedex is something fans are excited to learn more about because we know that Pokemon Scarlet and Violet are bringing the series into generation nine, so there are more new Pokemon to find and catch. Unfortunately, not all previous Pokemon will be available in these games, as was the case in Pokemon Sword and Shield. We finally know how big the Pokedex for these new games is, so this is everything you need to know about the Pokemon Scarlet and Violet Pokedex.

Pokemon Scarlet and Violet Pokedex: Starters

We can't have a new generation of Pokemon without a new trio of starters. These games give us the choice between Fuecoco, Quaxly, and Sprigatito.

These three adorable creatures adhere to the tradition of fire, water, and grass-type starters, but as is becoming common, they take on a secondary type as they evolve. Sprigatito evolves into Meowscarada, a grass/dark type, Quaxly evolves into Quaquaval, a water/fighting type, and Fuecoco evolves into Skeledirge, a fire/ghost type.

It goes without saying that the tradition of Pokemon is to have new legendary Pokemon every generation and to have one specific to each game to put on the cover. Unusually, the legendary Pokemon of Scarlet and Violet also act as your means of transportation.

The Pokemon Scarlet and Violet Legendaries are called Koraidon and Miraodon. Koraidon is a dragon/fighting type, and Miraidon is a dragon/electric type. Miraidon is Pokemon Violet's Legendary and Koraidon is Pokemon Scarlet's Legendary.

That is everything we know about the Pokemon Scarlet and Violet Pokedex. For more info, check out Pokemon Scarlet and Violet: Which one is better? to learn more about the differences between the versions.
