There are many creatures that we can find and capture in Pokemon Scarlet and Pokemon Purplera, and it is that one of our main objectives is going to be to complete the pokedex, something that will be more difficult than ever.
Not only because some creatures only appear at very specific times or there are complicated legendaries that come out, but even the initial three are not going to be obtained as easily as in previous installments of the license Pokemon.
In Scarlet Pokemon and Pokemon Purple we have as initials Sprigatito, Fuecoco and Quaxly, and although we can choose one at the beginning of the narrative, the rest we will not get at the end of the story as in previous iterations of Pokemon.
So we will only have one way to get the initial Pokemon of Pokemon Scarlet and pokemon purpleand we will explain it to you in the guide below.
Get the three starting pokemon in Pokemon Scarlet and Purple: Sprigatito, Fuecoco and Quaxly
It is not possible to capture Sprigatito, Fuecoco and Quaxly in the wild or give them as a gift to the champion and finish the story, and the only way we have to get the initial three is through trade.
It will be through trade, whether local or online, when we can try to get the rest of the initials that we are missing, at least until Nintendo changes it in a future update.
Once we start Pokemon Scarlet and Pokemon Purple it will take about half an hour to get to the point in the story where the trade is unlocked.
If you have two copies of the game and two consoles, you could get the starters much faster by trading them between yourself.
For that you would have to start a main game on each of the consoles, choose a different starter each game, and locally trade the creatures when the right moment in the story arrives. For the third remaining starter, restart one of the two matches.
All of the above could take you a minimum of an hour or an hour and a half, but it is the fastest and most direct way.
The other option you have is obviously to exchange it with strangers through online trading.
We can also create our initial and then exchange its offspring for the other two initiators with friends or with online players, but for this to work you need the initiator to be female.
If it’s not female, you’ll need a Ditto, and that’s because this creature can breed with just about any other.
We know that it is not as easy as in previous installments of Pokemon, but at least we now have these methods to get all the initial Pokemon in these new installments.
