Pokemon Scarlet & Pokemon Violet - General Discussion/Speculation Thread

I'm shocked. Not only did they not censor the long middle finger by moving it to a different spot on the hand, but they gave it a design and personality of someone that definitely would flip someone off.
Oh no man, the longest finger is still the middle one

Also it seems to be unique to that forest location alone, I'm definitely running over there early game I think.

I'm surprised too that they kept the long finger as the middle finger. Sure its accurate but dang that seems like a controversy waiting to happen.

Overall I like the design, but I sort of hope that the "hoodie" is shown as being something it can at least partially pull off like a special flap of skin. Otherwise it looks like its ears have no ear holes, and the edges of its eyes even get cut off.

And yay, my little Vivillon collection will get an upgrade finally.

Ok so we have to look for trees or rocks with those markings. I like that, incorporating the dex lore into the world. I wonder where we'll find these trees...

Looking at the model, you can see how the lighting on the edges around its eyes show that it is folded over the head.

However, like Passimian's ears, we probably will never see it officially with its hood off.

Grafaiai looks really manacing. Wondering if and how its evo will look like.
And a new type combo is always nice:)

So Normal/Poison is neutral to Fighting, right?

Cool detail, they gave it the aye aye's rodent-like teeth.

One can hope at least. We did get things like Applin's real body and Hatterene's appearance under the hair.

Ok, I'm not geeking out over it like I was with Scorbunny & Obstagoon, but Grafaiai is the first Gen 9 pokemon I NEED to have on my team!! I love the design & typing, and I'm a sucker for any pokemon with an art theme

It's wearing a hoodie? Oh God, it IS! Well someone at Game Freak knew exactly how to get this into my top ten primate Pokemon list.

I already liked it on the trailer, but the official artwork looks absolutely amazing. LOVE it. An a poison type to make everything better <3

Hopefully it doesn't evolve, I would like it to stay like that.

Here’s hoping for a cool new Vivillon pattern to celebrate Paldea
What if each Vivilon pattern has a different Terra type?
It would be nice if they something with the useless forms Pokemon (VIvillon, Sawsbuck, Alcremie, Furfrou) even something as simple as dedicated Terra types.

I think you figured it out. Excluding the 2 special patterns, Vivillon has 18 patterns, which is the same as how many types there are. Matching each to a certain Tera type would make sense.

I doubt they will give a gen 6 Pokemon such special treatment, but I love this idea
