Now that Pokémon Scarlet and Violet have officially launched we now know that there are 400 Pokémon in the Paldean Pokédex. Some of these are brand new creatures while others are interesting takes on familiar species. At any rate, we've gathered all of this information together so you can see who exactly all of the Pokémon are and which ones are exclusives.
SPOILER WARNING: There are some spoilers ahead. If you don't want to have anything ruined read no further.
How many Pokémon are in Scarlet and Violet?
As with the infamous Dexit from Pokémon Sword and Shield not all Pokémon from previous generations are included. This will be the norm going forward with mainline Pokémon games. The Paldean Pokédex has 400 Pokémon in it.
Shiny Pokémon will be a fun thing to search for since there are a number of brand new Pokémon that we haven't seen before.
Pokémon Scarlet and Violet Who are the starters?
As always, we have a Grass, Fire, and Water starter for Gen 9. They are Sprigatito, Fuecoco, and Quaxly.
