Sprigatito, Fuecoco, and Quaxly are the starter Pokémon of Pokémon Scarlet and Purple.
Sprigatito, Fuecoco and Quaxly, who is the best starter?
The beginning of each new generation of Pokémon brings with it a classic debate since the Grass, Fire and Water types will always have three new members thanks to the role of the starter pokemonthis being a subject that we do not deal with too much weight in our Pokémon Scarlet and Purple Analysis, but which has ended up being a topic of interest to all players of Pokemon Scarlet and Purple. And all this is because a debate is created around the choice of each initial by each player at the same time that another arises that will give a lot to talk about especially at the end of the generation, so that is what we are considering now: What is the best Pokémon Scarlet and Purple starter? And this is where they come in Sprigatito, Fuecoco and Quaxly. These three initial Pokémon that start the ninth generation have already been shown in all their splendor, being so Meowscarada, Skeledirge y Quaquaval They will be the three Pokémon that will accompany us throughout the adventure. And leaving aside the physical aspect and the fact that having Gyms, Dominant Pokémon, and Team Star Bases that all types represent, we now discuss the best starter pokemon according to the statistics of each one.
Sprigatito is the Grass-type starter.
All about Sprigatito
Let’s start with him Pokémon that starts the Pokédex of Paldea, which will evolve into Meowscarade once you reach level 36. Based on the fact that you can go in the order in which you want, the Bug-type gym won’t be a problem, without forgetting here that it is not that it is too complicated. Nonetheless, let’s go with what we find Meowscara. Upon reaching the level 36is Pokemon will evolve to its last phasethus acquiring the type Plant / Darka combination that, in a sense, is pretty disastroussince it is weak to Fire, Ice, Fighting, Poison, Flying, Bug (x4), Fairy, that is, practically to the middle of the type table. This means that it is very weak against most moves. However, luckily you have Hidden Ability Mutatype, with which he could lose these double weaknesses. Therefore, added to this, we will have the attack floral trucoof type Plant and that always gives Critical Strike. Maybe not now, but in the future Sprigatito points waysespecially because of the great physical damage it does and its high speed.
Fuecoco is the Fire-type starter.
All about Fuecoco
We continue now with Fire-type starterwhich takes the role of Fuecoco and that it is a Pokémon that is quite effective at the beginning of the adventure because it can deal with the first two gyms, being the rock in the wall the one that gives you the most input problems. However, we are going to deal now with what the Pokémon itself is with the form of Skeledirge. This is a pokemon that shares types with Hisui’s Typhlosion, namely, Fire / Ghost, making it weak to Water, Ground, Dark, and Rock, types that are not so common in the game. However, we are going to go further when talking about his statistics, being a defensive tank thanks to its high Defense and HP stats. To this we must add that his attack Burning Song allows him to raise his Special Attack with each use, while Scream lowers his opponent’s, which can give him great power. However, the fact that his Speed isn’t very good makes him perhaps better on Trick Room teams, coupled with the fact that Ignorant as Hidden ability Allows you to ignore all the opponent’s buffs. It is like QuagsireBut better.
Quaxly is the Water-type starter.
All about Quaxly
Finally, we come to Quaxlythe Water-type Pokémon that has turned the entire Pokémon lore upside down, since, far from being a bullfighter as was speculated, it has ended up being a dancer, being so Anyhow it is crowned as an icon within a certain sector of the community due to its design. However, speaking of this Water/Fighting-type PokémonIt must be said that its type combination makes it weak to Electric, Grass, Flying, Psychic, and Fairy, but this Pokémon goes much further, since being specialized in the physical attack and speed, it makes a Pokémon that could already be normal go much further. And this is because has Hidden Ability Self Esteem, which increases its attack with each opponent it defeats. If we add to this the fact that water dancewe are facing a Pokémon that in the same turn can raise your speed plus increase your attack. A wonder that could be essential in the competitive.
The three starters of Pokémon Scarlet and Purple
Who is the best starter?
At this point, there is a fairly clear conclusion and that is that Fuecoco fulfills the role of a physical tankwhile Quaxly y Sprigatito they are fast pokemon with a high attack. This makes these three Pokémon have been designed as quite a competitive trio, so it will be necessary to see which ends up being the most effective. However, it is time to talk about one that stands out from the others, being that Sprigatito ends up falling to Quaxly because they do the same thing, but the duck does it better. And to this we should add that the possibility of knowing Flying or Ice attacks makes it much easier to finish him off (not counting the Fighting type with STAB). And in the same way, it should be noted that Fuecoco does not finish standing out as a tankwhich makes that Quaxly is crowned the best starter Pokémon in Paldea. That is why if you want to have a fast and strong Pokémon in the future, this being the best for the adventure, all you have to do is choose the duck.
