New Pokémon in Scarlet & Violet

Here is a list of all of the new Pokémon that are in Pokémon Scarlet & Violet. There are a total of 103 new Pokémon included in the games, and 4 new forms of existing Pokémon. Of these, there are also several evolutions of existing Pokémon.

A full, detailed Pokémon Scarlet & Violet Pokédex will be coming to the Marriland website over the coming weeks, but in the meanwhile, this page should help give you an idea of what the new Pokémon are and a little bit about them. You can also click any of the icons to see it zoomed in a bit larger.

  • Sp. Atk: 40
  • Sp. Def: 25
  • Speed: 60

Evolves at level 18 to Pawmo.

Pawmo

Pawmo

Type: Electric / Fighting
Ability: Volt Absorb / Natural Cure
Hidden Ability: Iron Fist
Base Stats:

  • HP: 60

  • Defense: 40
  • Sp. Atk: 50
  • Sp. Def: 40

  • HP: 70
  • Attack: 115
  • Defense: 70
  • Sp. Atk: 70
  • Sp. Def: 60
  • Speed: 105

While evolving Pawmi into Pawmo is pretty straightforward, evolving Pawmo into Pawmot can be rather frustrating if you don’t know what to do. How do you evolve Pawmo into Pawmot? You need to send your Pawmo out in Let’s Go mode! You can do this by pressing ZR and you’ll want to make sure that your Pawmo is following behind you.

Then, you’ll need to take 1,000 steps in Let’s Go mode with your Pawmo and then have it gain a level (excluding the auto-battle mode—Rare Candies or Exp. Candies are fine!).

However, sometimes it seems like this counter resets for some reason, and you might wind up like I did and have your Pawmo follow you around hoping that it will evolve, but it never does. That’s unfortunate! The best way to evolve Pawmo is to just run around in circles for a few minutes with it sent out in Let’s Go mode! Just take a quick 3–5 minute jog in circles in a town or somewhere, without getting into any battles (just in case), and then have it gain a level. That should result in it evolving; otherwise, just repeat the process and try again and it eventually will evolve.

  • Defense: 70
  • Sp. Atk: 65

Tandemaus evolves into Maushold after reaching level 25, but instead of evolving immediately, it will randomly evolve while it is in your party or in the PC. It will become either the Family of Three form or, less commonly, the Family of Four form. These two forms are identical stat-wise and with their Abilities.

Tandemaus and Maushold have a new move called Population Bomb, which hits 1 to 10 times in a row in a single attack. This can be powered up with a new item, the Loaded Dice, which increases the chance of multi-hit moves hitting more.

It’s recommended to just walk around inside of a city in a circle for about 2–5 minutes, then you can level it up via normal battling or items like Rare Candies or Exp. Candies.

Wiglett and Wugtrio

Wiglett

Wiglett

Type: Water
Ability: Gooey / Rattled
Hidden Ability: Sand Veil

  • HP: 35
  • Attack: 100
  • Defense: 50
  • Sp. Atk: 50

Despite appearing similar to Diglett and Dugtrio, these are not Paldean variants, but are separate species.

Bombirdier

Hidden Ability: Rocky Payload
Base Stats:

  • HP: 70
  • Attack: 103
  • Defense: 85
  • Sp. Atk: 60
  • Sp. Def: 85
  • Speed: 82

Bombirdier has a new Ability, Rocky Payload, which powers up Rock-type moves. That’s handy, because it does get quite a few that it can make good use of, despite not being Rock-type itself. However, it is only available as a Hidden Ability, meaning you have to find one in a Tera Raid Battle.

Finizen and Palafin

Finizen

Finizen

Type: Water
Ability: Water Veil
Base Stats:

  • HP: 70
  • Attack: 45
  • Defense: 40
  • Sp. Atk: 45
  • Sp. Def: 40

  • HP: 100
  • Attack: 70
  • Defense: 72
  • Sp. Atk: 53
  • Sp. Def: 62

Yes, Palafin looks almost identical to Finizen. There is actually a small spot on its underside, though.

Palafin (Hero Form)

Type: Water
Ability: Zero to Hero

  • HP: 100
  • Attack: 160
  • Defense: 97
  • Sp. Atk: 106
  • Sp. Def: 87
  • Speed: 100

Palafin changes into its Hero Form after it switches out in battle.

Palafin’s new, unique Ability, Zero to Hero, transforms it from its fairly regular Zero Form (the initial form) into its ultra-powerful Hero Form after you’ve switched it out in battle. That ramps its Attack stat through the roof and gives it Legendary-tier stats, but you have to first essentially waste a turn switching it out, meaning it isn’t available at the start of a battle.

Varoom and Revavroom

Varoom

Varoom

Type: Steel / Poison
Ability: Overcoat
Hidden Ability: Slow Start
Base Stats:

  • HP: 45

  • HP: 80
  • Attack: 119
  • Defense: 90
  • Sp. Atk: 54
  • Sp. Def: 67
  • Speed: 90

Throughout the game, you’ll encounter several special Revavroom used by certain bosses. These have different types and Abilities than standard Revavroom and are uncatchable. Keep that in mind while fighting them, as they will not have the types and Abilities above, but will instead match the type of Pokémon that the boss uses.

Cyclizar

Cyclizar

Type: Dragon / Normal
Ability: Shed Skin
Hidden Ability: Regenerator
Base Stats:

  • HP: 70
  • Attack: 95
  • Defense: 65
  • Sp. Atk: 85
  • Sp. Def: 65
  • Speed: 121

Despite appearing similar to both Koraidon and Miraidon, it is not possible for Cyclizar to evolve or transform into either of them and is essentially counted as a completely separate Pokémon. There is still some relation to those other two Pokémon, though, although it is something explained during the storyline of the game.

Orthworm

Orthworm

Type: Steel
Ability: Earth Eater
Hidden Ability: Sand Veil
Base Stats:

  • HP: 70

Its Hidden Ability, Costar, activates when it is sent out in battle and it copies any stat changes that your other Pokémon have.

Cetoddle and Cetitan

Tatsugiri come in three varieties—Curly Form (orange), Droopy Form (pink), and Stretchy Form (yellow). They all have the same stats and Abilites, though. Their Commander Ability is weird as it causes the Pokémon to go inside of a Dondozo that you have on the field if you’re in a Double or Multi Battle and it is able to attack while shielded inside of it.

Frigibax

Gimmighoul and Gholdengo

Gimmighoul (Chest Form)

Gimmighoul

Base Stats:

  • HP: 45
  • Attack: 30
  • Defense: 70

  • HP: 45
  • Attack: 30
  • Defense: 25
  • Sp. Atk: 75

  • Defense: 95
  • Sp. Atk: 133
  • Sp. Def: 91

Neither form of Gimmighoul learn any moves by leveling up and don’t have many moves they can learn by TM, making them poor additions to your team. They also have a very unusual evolution method—you need to collect 999 Gimmighoul Coins throughout the Paldea region.

You can find Gimmighoul in both its Roaming and Chest Form throughout the Paldea region—when you interact with its Roaming Form by pressing A, you’ll receive a few Gimmighoul Coins but it will run away. If you find its Chest Form, usually on top of abandoned watchtowers, you can fight it in its Chest Form and it will drop a much larger amount of Gimmighoul Coins after catching it or defeating it.

These Gimmighoul have a chance of respawning every real-world day (not in-game day), so you can go back to previous locations you’ve found them in to farm more coins. 999 coins is quite a lot to collect, but at least you can hear little jingling sounds if there is a Roaming Gimmighoul nearby, so as long as you keep your eyes and ears peeled, you’ll pick up a good amount.

Paradox Pokémon

There are special, version-exclusive Pokémon that are referred to as “Paradox Pokémon” and are very mysterious. These are Pokémon that resemble an existing species, but are quite a bit different, and typically much stronger.

To avoid spoiling these unusual Pokémon for you, these Paradox Pokémon are contained in a separate, dedicated page, which you can find below:

Koraidon and Miraidon

The “box Legendary” Pokémon of Scarlet & Violet, Koraidon and Miraidon are powerful Pokémon that travel along with you throughout your adventure. You get Koraidon in Scarlet and Miraidon in Violet.

You’ll be able to ride around them starting fairly early on in the game, and can eventually upgrade their movement and exploration abilities as you progress through the Titan’s Path storyline arc with Arven. Despite this, you won’t be able to use them in battle until near the end of the game.

You can find out more about these two Pokémon, along with their stats and types, on their dedicated page:

Legendary Pokémon

In addition to the version mascot Pokémon, Koraidon and Miraidon, there are also four more new Legendary Pokémon that can be found after beating the overall story of the game and seeing the credits.

To avoid spoiling these, details on these Pokémon, as well as how to encounter them, are listed on the following page:
