Sprigatito was announced alongside the other two starter Pokémon, Fuecoco and Quaxly, 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.

Capricious and attention seeking, it may sulk if it sees its Trainer giving attention to a Pokémon other than itself.

When Sprigatito kneads and rubs with its forepaws, a sweet aroma is released that can mesmerize those around it. This aroma has therapeutic qualities and makes opponents lose their will to battle. The composition of its fluffy fur is similar to plants, letting it create energy by absorbing sunlight. It adds moisture to its fur by grooming itself, which aids its ability to photosynthesize.
