Fuecoco. Currently, at this stage, it has a majorly red fur, with some yellow tones here and there. It also possesses the Fire-type Pokemon ability, blaze.

Fueco’s first evolution is called Crocalor which is not that dissimilar to Fuecoco design-wise, apart from the sombrero. However, this is no normal hat, since it’s a nest with an egg on it. Apparently, the combination of Crocalor’s fire energy and vitality caused the egg to appear on its head. Also, the egg is actually a fireball!

This Pokemon’s last evolution is Skeldirge. This evolution radically changes the Pokemon’s design transforming it into a crocodile, with white and purple markings over its red body. Added to that is also has a bird on its head, which changes shape once the Pokemon sings.

It also possesses the Grass-type Pokemon ability, overgrow.

The first evolution for this feline Pokemon is Floragato, which instantly gives it a more humanoid form since now the Pokemon stands on two legs instead of four. Equipped with a vine with a pink flower hidden beneath its now darker green fur, Floragato is much deadlier than its predecessor.

The final evolution for this Pokemon is the Meowscarada, along with which comes some significant design changes as well. Meowscarada has puffy sleeves and a black mask over its face. It also has a green cape and a bright pink collar around its neck.

Quaxyl’s first evolution is Quaxwell. This evolution has a significant amount of hair on its head, with neon blue markings on its belly. The design used for Quaxwell is different than Quaxyl as well since now it has a much more humanoid appearance.

The last evolution for this Pokemon is Quaquavel, which is the tallest of the bunch. This time, Quaquavel branches out in terms of the color scheme and follows a much more brighter color palette consisting of shades of blue, complimented by different accents of orange and yellow.

Best starter in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet

The best starter to select in Pokemon SV is quite difficult because just by looking at their individual stats, making the decision is an impossible task. However, it is recommended to select the feline Sprigatito as your starter.
