Main characters and first partner Pokémon

As one of the main characters in Pokémon Scarlet or Pokémon Violet, you’ll begin your adventure with a different outfit depending on which game you are playing. Next, you’ll then have to choose your first partner Pokémon before setting off on your journey.

The first three Pokémon you’ll be able to choose from as your first partner are Sprigatito, the Grass Cat Pokémon, Fuecoco, the Fire Croc Pokémon, or Quaxly, the Duckling Pokémon.

Furthermore, after Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet launch later this year, you’ll be able to link each game with Pokémon HOME. This means that you will be able to keep your entire Pokémon collection in one place. And, when you link either game with Pokémon HOME, you can have Pokémon from other regions adventure alongside of you in either game.
