Cryptic video shows our first official look at Grafaiai from Pokémon Scarlet and Violet – Effinate Games


After several days of teasers from the Pokémon company, our first real look at Grafaiai is now available. The animated reveal of Grafaiai gives us a good idea of ​​what we can expect to see when it makes its debut for Pokémon Scarlet and Violet in November.

In the footage, we capture Grafaiai as it begins to make its mark on several trees and rocks, painting them in wild colors. The Pokémon uses its long fingers to create them using local berries and other natural colors it can find in nature. We previously theorized that it would use its tail to create these drawings, but it appears that it doesn’t, setting it apart from Smeargle, another painting Pokémon.

Near the end of the video, we receive a full view of the Grafaiai before it covers the camera in paint. To get a better look at it, Grafaiai looks a lot like a lemur with massive eyes and long fingers.

In the video, we also catch Scatterbug walking through the forest. It confirms the return of this Pokémon and we can expect to see it wandering through Paldea when Scarlet and Violet are available. We can also expect to see its evolved forms, Spewpa and Vivillion.

Shortly after the video went live, the Pokémon Company sent out another tweet and a shorter video to give more details about Grafaiai when we see it in Paldea. It will be a Poison and Normal type Pokemon, making it different even though it looks similar to Smeargle. We were hoping it would be a Dark type, but making it a Poison type could lead to some interesting combos.

The reveal footage corresponds to how many Pokémon were announced before the release of Pokémon Legends: Arceus. We can expect to receive a handful more before Pokémon Scarlet and Violet arrive later this year on November 18th.
