Quaxly was announced alongside the other two starter Pokémon, Fuecoco and Sprigatito, during the Pokémon Day Pokémon Presents on the 27th February 2022.

All three starter Pokémon were the first revealed for Pokémon Scarlet and Violet. They also all have the same name in both the English and Spanish localisations, highlighting the link to Scarlet & Violet’s Spain-inspired region.

This serious-mannered Pokémon will follow in its Trainer’s wake. Quaxly is tidy, and it especially dislikes getting its head dirty.

Its body is always glossy because the gel secreted by its feathers repels water and grime. The coif on its head is slicked back using a rich, moist cream, and it becomes unkempt when dry. It has strong legs and can swim without difficulty even in places with strong currents. In battle, it kicks its opponents swiftly and repeatedly.
