The Pokémon Company has released new details on Grafaiai, one of the many new Pokémon you’ll be able to catch in this year’s Pokémon Scarlet and Violet this November.

Grafaiai is a Toxic Monkey Pokemon, and a combo poison/normal type. He’s described as a moody Pokémon, who likes to attack by spitting with its poisonous salvia.

Interestingly, Grafaiai’s spit changes colour depending on what it eats. It also has the ability to paralyse bug Pokémon – as you can see in the pair of videos below.

Pokémon Scarlet and Violet – release date, new region and more

Pokémon Scarlet and Violet is set to release exclusively on the Nintendo Switch on November 18, 2022.

The latest game in the long running series will take place in the new region of Paldea. The new region appears to be based on the Iberian Peninsula, which is made up of the countries Spain, Portugal and Andorra.

The game has revealed its largest city of the region as Mesagoza. Here, players will join either the Naranja Academy or Uva Academy, depending on which version of the game they play.

This time, your Pokédex will be part of your Rotom Phone as an app. The phone will also act as a guide, with a map of the entire region with nearby towns, Pokémon Centres and even nearby Pokémon.

A major feature of the new games is that of Terastallization. This is an ability that trainers can use to give their Pokémon a crystal-like appearance. However, more than just cosmetic, it’ll allow Pokémon to get special powers and even enhance their types. You can read more on that here.

Furthermore, the new game will also feature co-op play, Tera Raid Battles and new Competitive Play options. They’ll also be able to trade and battle via the Poké Portal.
