Scarlet and Violet are the ninth generation of Pokemon to feature the festive and open-world Paldea region, where new Pokemon varieties, types, and species can be discovered. Like any mainline Pokemon game, Scarlet and Violet have three starters: Fuecoco, Quaxly, and, finally, the feline grass-type Pokemon Sprigatito.
Scarlet and Violet's Sprigatito are the final evolution of Pokemon.
A tweet from a trusted Pokemon leaker account called @PKMNleak showed a video of a Pokemon that appears to be Sprigatitos' final form, while Delphox, which is Generation six's final evolution.

Although it isn't clear what the second type of Pokemon this Pokemon might have, it has been speculated that it might be either Dark, Ghost, or Fighting.
Since it is a leak, it's still best to wait for the official Pokemon accounts to release.
The Paldea region has also introduced its gimmick, theTerastral Phenomenon. Every Pokemon in the region is born with aTera type, and the moves that match said type get a boost in power. Rare Pokemon with a Tera type different from their main type can even Terastallize and change types mid-battle.
InTera Raid battles, you may find Terastral Pokemon more often, similar to Max Raid Battles in Sword and Shield.
Pokemon Scarlet and Violet is the first mainline game to be fully open-world, in addition to the Terastral Phenomenon. Trainers may choose to tackle gyms in any order they desire or explore cities and towns in whatever order.
