Pokemon Scarlet and Violet are the next in a line of Pokemon fans who will have the pleasure of seeing them in a few months. One of the most exciting aspects of any Pokemon game is choosing a starter Pokemon, and Generation Nine's starters are some of the finest ones yet. For Water-Type fans, there is Sprigatito the cute duckling, while Pokemon Scarlet and Violet introduce Fuecoco the cute croc.
A recent trailer has revealed a few new Pokemon and a little more about the new region. Players will be able to attend Pokemon Academy and explore Paldea by hopping onto one of the two legendary Pokemon, although some things have not changed, yet the goal of the game is to become the greatest Pokemon Trainer.
Fan Theories Surrounding Fuecoco
Fuecoco is a red, bipedal Pokemon with big jaws that make it appear like a rascally crocodile. According to The Pokemon Company, Fuecoco is laid-back and loves eating. Water-Type starters are inspired by weapons, Grass-Type starters are inspired by prehistoric animals, and Fire-Type starters are inspired by the Chinese zodiac, to name a few.
Pokemon fans suspect that the Chinese zodiac theme has been broken due to Fuecoco's arrival. However, some gamers have speculated that it might evolve into a serpentine creature, allowing the Chinese zodiac theme to continue.
Fuecoco could be inspired by a chili pepper because of its color and shape, or an apple with a bite taken out of it, according to popular theories. However, the second Pokemon Scarlet and Violet teaser supported the apple hypothesis, stating that Fuecoco is influenced by an apple.
gamers have guessed that the next Pokemon region, Paldea, is inspired by Spain, although it may also be influenced by other countries in the Iberian Peninsula, including Portugal. Fuecoco is also believed to be based on Morrop, a Peruvian god who is also known as the Iguana Man, which has been verified by credible sources.
Leaks and Rumors Surrounding Fuecoco
Leaks have surfaced throughout the Pokemon Company, despite official information. A leaker named @realblaines claims that Fuecoco's middle evolution will feature an unhatched egg of fire on the Pokemon's head, and the egg turns into a flame bird in the final evolution. This may confirm theories that Fuecoco is based on Morrop, although it is also possible that the Pokemon is based on the Egyptian plover, which is known to pick decaying meat from crocodile teeth.
Fuecoco's final evolution is Fire/Ghost Type, while Sprigatito's final evolution is Water/Fighting Type, according to Riddler Khu, a leaker with a solid track record. A recent riddle by Khu suggests that Fuecoco's Hidden Ability is berry-based, opening the way for the critter to possess abilities like Gluttony and Ripen.
@CentroLeaks has had a good track record with leaks concerning previous Pokemon titles, including Terastallization and Pokemon Scarlet and Violet's new region's name before it was officially leaked. It depicts the Pokemon on all fours like a lizard, and it depicts Fuecoco's final evolution with a flaming bird on its head.
Many of the leaks appear to support a few essential points. First and foremost, they all state that Fuecoco will be four-legged. The alleged Fire/Ghost Typing also makes for an interesting combination, while the potential berry-based Hidden Ability might make Fuecoco a formidable Pokemon on the competitive field.
Pokemon Scarlet and Violet are set to be released for Nintendo Switch on November 18th.
