Pokémon Scarlet and Violet are the two new versions of the license released on November 18, 2022. If the graphics and technique have struggled to convince players, the two opuses are today the games that have achieved a monstrous record on Nintendo Switch : more than 10 million sales in just 3 days. And who says new generation says a hundred new pocket monsters to delight young and old. A week after its release, it's time for us to reveal our Top 5 of the best Pokémon of 9G.
If you haven't yet progressed far enough in the game to complete your Pokédex, we advise you to avoid this article which could spoil you on the creatures of 9G that you have not encountered.
Exclusive to Pokémon Violet, Iron Moth is a kind of pokémon from the future with wings and a metallic body. In addition to being absolutely magnificent, the Pokémon Paradox offers a friendly Fire / Poison dual-type.
Another exclusivity of the Violet version which destroys its Scarlet variant.
If Pawhmi is the ninth generation Pikachu, no doubt the little Maushold has stolen the hearts of many trainers in Paldea. Always in pairs they go, the Maushold evolve welcoming a baby mouse. The particularity of this evolution is that it can then have a Family of Three or Family of Four Form!
If some pokémon are far too powerful in competitive or Raid, there is one that should roll on the adventure from the beginning to the League: Tinkaton. Its dual-type allows him to have only two weaknesses: Fire and Ground! It is immune to Poison and Dragon and she even has Rock-type attacks.
Roaring Moon and Iron Valiant
This time, whether it's the Scarlet or Violet version, the two exclusives that can be found in the secret cave of Paldea Crater, are absolutely awe-inspiring. On one side is a flashy pink metallic Valiant, on the other a feathered Pokémon from the past.
Impossible not to mention the all-black Tauros from Paldea which, although its presence was logical in this region inspired by Spain and Portugal, surprised us with its two variants. Special mention also to Scovilain which is the very first Pokémon in the world to have the Fire / Grass double-type.
On the side of the Ruinous Legendaries, our favorite is Chi-yu, the small Asian fish that seems to have Yin and Yang in its eyes.
As budding trainers in the Paldea region know, finding secret spices isn't easy. However, a player has just shocked all fans of the license by recovering colossal and above all... very rare loot!
