Game Freak and The Pokemon Company announced the next in the main series titles during the Pokemon Presents broadcast earlier today, Pokemon Day 2022. In its very first teaser trailer, the company revealed this region’s three starter Pokemon: Sprigatito, Quaxly, and Fuecoco.

We’ve put together a few of the top reasons you should pick Fuecoco as your partner in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet.

Why You Should Pick Fuecoco

1. You enjoy spicy food!

The Iberian Penninsula has some of the most flavorful dishes in Western Europe.

From paella to pimentos, you’re down for any kind of spicy dish. You probably have an almost-empty bottle of sriracha in your fridge alongside a full, back-up bottle just in case. Hot honey or hot-pepper flakes may be among your top pizza condiments. Fortunately for you, there’s plenty of cuisine to match your taste buds in this region—to the point that its made its way into one of the starter’s designs.

2. You either are the most or strive to be more relaxed.

With no in-between.

Fuecoco is known as a laid back, slow and steady species that does things at its own pace. This personality is either extremely calming for those who may find it difficult to keep their anxieties in check or perfectly compatible for the already-easygoing trainer.

This Pokemon inspires those around it to take their time and get things done their own way.

3. You found yourself caught between Cyndaquil and Totodile in the Johto region.

Now, you get the best of both worlds!

Totodile is known for its extreme amounts of energy which, while cute, can be exhausting to deal with. This, along with its water-typing and competition against the cuddly fire-type Cyndaquil, made it a difficult pick in Generation II.

Now, trainers who want to keep an adorable reptile by their side without sacrificing their fire-type streak can do just that.
