All 24 Starter Pokémon Returning in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet DLC

Last updated:

Nintendo has announced that all 24 starter Pokémon from previous generations will return in the second part of the Pokémon Scarlet and Violet DLC, The Indigo Disk.

The DLC is scheduled to be released in the winter of 2023. In the meantime, Nintendo has released a new graphic highlighting all the returning starter Pokémon.

The graphic shows the Pokémon in their new Terastal forms, resulting from the Terastal phenomenon unique to Pokémon Scarlet and Violet. The Terastal phenomenon causes Pokémon to transform physically when exposed to the region’s special energy.

The graphic shows the starter Pokémon in their natural habitat in the Terrarium, a large greenhouse in Blueberry Academy. Trainers can clear missions given to them by the school to see the starter Pokémon in the wild. They will also be able to battle the Pokémon and try to add them to their team.
