New Pokémon in Scarlet and Violet
An ongoing list of all new Pokémon announced for Pokémon Scarlet & Violet will be kept on the New Pokémon page. As of September 29, 2022, there are 16 new Pokémon and 1 new Paldean form that have been officially revealed, including the starter Pokémon and the box Legendary Pokémon.
Returning Pokémon in Scarlet & Violet
According to the press release, only Pokémon that are available in Scarlet & Violet can be transferred to those games via Pokémon HOME, meaning it’s likely not every Pokémon from past games will be available to use in Scarlet and Violet. Because of this, an ongoing list of which Pokémon have been confirmed to make a return will be maintained so you’ll be able to know if a favorite is available. As of September 7, 2022, there are a total of 191 returning Pokémon that have been shown in videos, screenshots, and more.
New Characters in Scarlet & Violet
As with any Pokémon game, there will be numerous new characters introduced in the game. You can find a list of all confirmed important characters on the New Characters page, along with any information about them.
