Every Pokémon Confirmed for Pokémon Scarlet and Violet So Far

Has your fave made the cut?

Ever since Pokémon crossed the generation 8 threshold, some creatures haven’t made it into the games. As new games are announced, that’s left people curious about whether or not their favorite will make the cut. 

Nintendo doesn’t typically make a full announcement, so we don’t yet know how many Pokémon will be appearing in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet. But every trailer has had a good collection of Pokémon shown off. By combing through all of the trailers and information revealed by Nintendo so far, we have assembled this list of every Pokémon confirmed for Pokémon Scarlet and Violet. Evolutions have also been added. 

This list includes all the returning Pokémon from previous games as well as the new additions made in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet. Plus, there’s at least one new form coming to the Paldean region.

When more information is released, we’ll update this guide accordingly.

Confirmed returning Pokémon in Scarlet and Violet

Below is a list of all the Pokémon from previous games which have been confirmed to return in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet. These are Pokémon which have been spotted in the trailers that Nintendo have released. Evolutions which have not been seen directly have been included, because it’s very unlikely that they will be excluded or changed.

New Paldean Forms in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet

One previous Pokémon, Wooper, has also been given a Paldean form. Different forms have sometimes been observed in different Pokémon games. They bring a new look and new types to certain Pokémon. In this case, while Wooper is usually a Water and Ground type Pokémon, Paldean Wooper will be a Poison and Ground type. 

It is not yet known whether the original Wooper form will be available in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet.

We will update this article if more Paldean forms are confirmed to appear in the game.
