All Pokemon confirmed for Pokemon Scarlet and Violet

There’s no telling exactly what list Pokemon Scarlet and Violet is going to be in the game. It could feature a mostly Sword and Shield list, or it could be a completely new Pokedex to fill out. At the time of writing, there’s no confirmation if the entire Pokemon catalog will be in the game.


With this in mind, the various trailers and teasers for the upcoming Pokemon games have shown fans that quite a few Pokemon are going to be in the game in some way or another. Whether they are in the basic Pokedex, National Dex, or if there will be special event Pokemon, is unknown at this time.

So far, quite a few interesting Pokemon have been confirmed, with a number of fan favorites confirmed through various sources. While the roster will no doubt be bolstered by a number of entries from previous generations, there will also be plenty of new Pokemon that have not been discovered in any previous generation.


As this is a living and breathing world, it makes sense that Pokemon from other regions can be found in Scarlet and Violet’s Paldea region. There are three new confirmed Starters: Sprigatito (Grass), Quaxly (Water), and Fuecoco (Fire).
