It's been an eventful couple of years for Pokémon fans, and developer GameFreak isn't done entertaining the next generation of trainers. In February 2022, the company announced another set of main series Pokémon games coming to the Switch very soon — Pokémon Violet and Pokémon Scarlet.\n\nThese two games are set to release for Nintendo Switch consoles in November 2022, bringing with them an entirely new generation of Pokémon. Here's what we know of those new Pokémon so far.'Pokémon Violet' and 'Scarlet' will introduce brand-new starter Pokémon.The first new Pokémon confirmed to be coming to the upcoming title as part of Generation 9 are Sprigatito, a Grass-type cat Pokémon; Fuecoco, a Fire-type crocodile-inspired Pokémon; and Quaxly, the Water-type duck Pokémon who looks like it's wearing a toupee. At this time, their evolutions haven't been revealed, though fans have posed plenty of theories for what their evolutions could look like.The trailer also revealed that many longtime favorites, like Magnemite, Lucario, Drifloon, Combee, Meowth, Pikachu, Starly, Swablu, Cherubi, Psyduck, and Hoppip (among others), will return.\n\nSome eagle-eyed fans have also noticed that there are some Hisuian forms that are featured in the announcement trailer — indicating that some of the Arceus versions will make their way into the game.Here are just some of the other new Pokémon teased for Gen 9.Since the game's announcement, other new members of Generation 9 have since been teased — and the new Pokémon have some pretty unique designs.\n\nPawmi is the first to make an appearance. This small orange mouse Pokémon has electric patches on its cheeks reminiscent of Pikachu. "It generates electricity by rubbing its cheeks, then it shocks its opponents by touching them with the pads on its forepaws," the Pokémon's description reads.Lechonk is a new fan favorite, as the pig-like Pokémon's adorable pudginess hides its muscular build. "Lechonk uses its sense of smell to find and eat only the most fragrant wild grasses and the richest Berries. As a result of its dining habits, it has come to radiate an aroma resembling herbs that Bug-type Pokémon dislike. If attacked by an opponent and startled, it will charge forward in a panic," the Pokémon's description reads.Smoliv is reminiscent of Budew, only the fruit perched atop its head exudes oil when it's startled — which it uses as a defense mechanism to slow enemies down. "In the fruit on its head, Smoliv stores oil made from nutrients it gathers through photosynthesis. As a result, it can go for a week without eating or drinking. It prefers dry and sunny climates, and it seems to spend its days sunbathing," the official description reads.Another Generation 9 Pokémon that is attracting lots of attention has been playfully dubbed "Pooper," or "Paldean Wooper." The traditional Wooper is a Water/Ground-type Pokémon that is blue colored while the new variant is brown.\n\nPaldean Wooper exists on land and is a Poison/Ground-type Pokémon. Other Generation 9 Pokémon spotted include a Fairy-type Pokémon called Fidough and an Ice-type Pokémon called Cetitan.Meanwhile, Cetitan, known as the Terra Whale Pokémon, is described as follows: "Cetitan need to have tough muscles to be able to support their immense bodies, and physical attacks using their bodies have incredible power. They also migrate around the snowy regions, protected by a thick layer of subcutaneous fat. A Cetitan has five hard horns, Among them, 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."An official description for Fidough the Puppy Pokémon reads, "Fidough's moist, smooth skin has elastic qualities and is both firm and soft at the same time. When these Pokémon become excited, they intimidate their opponents by puffing up their bodies to appear bigger. 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."Next, we have Cyclizar, a Dragon/Normal-type Pokémon that can travel as fast as 70 mph with a trainer on its back.\n\n"This Pokémon has lived in many households in the Paldea region since ancient times," its official description reads. "It has a mild disposition, and people riding Cyclizar are a very common sight. It appears Cyclizar don't mind being ridden because the warmth of a rider helps stave off the cold."While all of these Pokémon already offer a pretty thorough look at the next generation, The Pokémon Company has continued to share more of the upcoming creatures. \n\nOn Twitter, the company shared the "Terra Whale Pokémon" Certitan and Grafaiai, the Poison and Normal-type Pokémon known for its graffiti.\n\nThough the game's release is still a ways off, players can keep an eye on Twitter for more new Pokémon before Scarlet and Violet come out.A third trailer for 'Pokémon Scarlet' and 'Pokémon Violet' revealed the game's legendary Pokémon.On Aug. 3, 2022, a Pokémon Presents stream released a third trailer for the upcoming game that included a look at two new legendary Pokémon. The world of Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet will take place in Paldea, a brand-new region, and the legendary Pokémon are named Koraidon and Miraidon.Like Cyclizar, it appears that Koraidon and Miraidon can be ridden like motorcycles — on land and in the air. With this connection, many fans are wondering how Cyclizar plays into the game's themes of past and future, and whether it is at all related to the two legendary monsters from the new games.\n\nFans can look forward to catching these Pokémon when Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet release on Nov. 18, 2022.
