Sprigatito, the Grass-type Pokémon

The grass-type Pokémon have the advantage over rock-type Pokémon. So Sprogatito is great for players who are going to take The Stony Cliff Titan first. Among all the starter Pokémon, Sprigatito has the highest speed and higher physical attack stat. Sparigatito evolves to Floragato once it reaches level 16. When it reaches level 36, it gets its final evolution and turns into Meowscarada. It acquires a secondary Dark typing here, giving it access to several powerful Dark-type attacks. But this comes with a drawback. It becomes weak against Fighting and Fairy-type Pokémon and 4x weaker against Bug-type Pokémon.

Fuecoco, the Fire-type Pokémon

According to fan polls, Fuecoco is the most well-liked starter Pokémon. Fuecoco was quickly compared to other crocodile-like Pokémon as well as Totodile from Gold and Silver. Similar to Sprigatito, Fuecoco’s name was another nod to the local influences on Scarlet and Violet. In Spanish, “Fuego” means “fire,” and “Cocodrilo” is “crocodile,” making it the Fire Croc Pokémon. It has the lowest speed among all three starter Pokémon but has the highest defensive stat. Its other stats are overall evenly spread. At level 16, Fuecoco evolves into Crocalor, and at level 36, it transforms into Skeledirge. Skeledirge gains the Ghost type, making it immune to Fighting and Normal-type attacks and vulnerable to Dark and Ghost-type attacks. It is great Pokémon to pick if you are starting with Victory Road.

Quaxly, the Water-type Pokémon

Quaxly is not the first duck-based Pokémon, but its stylish pompadour-style hair makes it stand out from all of them. Its Pokédex records hint at a greater level of intelligence and an obsession with looks. At level 16, Quaxly evolves into Quaxwell, and at level 36, Quaquaval, Quaxly’s last evolution. Quaxly when evolved into Quaqauval, gains Fighting-type which is great to handle Psychic and Fairy type. It has the highest physical attack stat among all Pokémon Scarlet and Violet starters. Quaquaval has a better attacking and defensive stat than Meowscarada, the final evolved stage of Sprigatito. It is great for taking on Team Star.
