Pokemon Scarlet Violet New Pokemon Three Split NL

With a new Pokémon Scarlet & Violet trailer dropping earlier today, we were expecting to see a couple of new Pokémon amidst the fields. And we did indeed, even if it was only brief and we didn't get time to get to know them! But don't worry, we spotted you.

First up is the most obvious one, and the star of the 'Path of Legends' story, Klawf. It's a Rock-type crab — and a fairly big crab, at that. Known as the Ambush Pokémon, it's said to have very strong claws that can hold an enemy in one place.

We're not so sure what that is on its legs, though — fur? Fluff? Sea urchins?

The other two Pokémon sort of come as a pair, and are version-exclusive opposites. The fiery Armarouge is unique to Scarlet, while the sleek Ceruledge is a Violet exclusive. We had to do a double take to make sure they weren't Mega Man cameos, but they look very interesting.

Armarouge gets its psychic energy — as the series' second Fire/Psychic-type — from its armour, while Fire/Ghost-type Ceruledge's armour is full of grudges.

Both Armarouge and Ceruledge can learn some brand new moves — Armor Cannon and Bitter Blade — while Klawf can learn Anger Shell, which is making its debut in Scarlet & Violet.

That's three more new Pokémon joining the fray, then? We wonder how many more we'll get to meet — including if any more Paldean forms are joining our little brown Wooper.
