Pokemon Presents dropped a new trailer for Pokemon Scarlet and Violet, introducing fans to the types for new Pokemon Paldean Wooper, Fidough, and Cetitan.
Alongside a deep dive into the Paldea region and the reveal of the new Tera type battle mechanic, three new Pokemon were revealed. This includes two completely new Pokemon as well as the first regional variant set to arrive among gen-nine Pokemon. These new Pokemon are all seemingly basic types and will likely evolve.
These Pokemon are also unrelated to the previous batch that included Pawmi, Lechonk, and Smoliv. Unfortunately, fans are still left wondering what each of these Pokemon will grow into.
What type is Paldean Wooper in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet?
Paldean Wooper is set to be a poison and ground-type Pokemon, differentiating it from the water-ground Johtonian Pokemon fans are used to.
It doesn’t get a radical redesign like certain other regional variants, with this change looking like something more akin to a pallet swap. Its body is brown instead of blue and its external gills are purple, hinting at its change from water to poison typing.
Worth noting is that while fans can look forward to Paldean Wooper, that doesn’t necessarily mean that they can expect a Paldean Quagsire. Galar introduced the concept of regional variants having unique evolutions, which was seen with Galarian Meowth becoming Perrserker instead of a new Persian. Fans may still get Paldean Quagsire, but that’s not guaranteed.
What type is Fidough in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet?
Fidough is a new fairy-type Pokemon coming in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet.
Following up on Pawmi, Fidough is a new cutesy Pokemon that was revealed during Pokemon Presents. As the name suggests, Fidough is a dog made of dough with a bread-like appearance.
This continues the tradition of food Pokemon usually being fairy type. This was first seen with Slurpuff but was properly cemented with Pokemon Sword and Shield’s Alcremie.
What type is Cetitan in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet?
Cetitan is a new ice-type Pokemon coming in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet.
Besides the legendaries, Cetitan is the first gen-nine Pokemon that might intimidate its opponents. It is a pure ice type and categorized as the “Terra Whale Pokemon.” It looks like it will be the signature Pokemon of a new ice-type gym leader named Grusha.
