Pokémon 1008 Encounters coverage and new official artwork

Pokémon has released a video celebrating the series surpassing 1000 different species! It was advertised through Pokémon’s Japanese social media accounts in advanced, which led to some speculation there may be new information in it, but we only got the official reveal of new Pokémon Scarlet and Violet Pokémon that had not been publicly shown before.

Official artwork for Scarlet & Violet starter evolutions

Today, the final two evolutions of each starter from Pokémon Scarlet and Violet were officially revealed along with their artwork. You can see the art of Floragato, Mewoscarada, Crocalor, Skeledirge, Quaxwell and Quaquaval below.

Artwork of Paradox Pokémon from Scarlet & Violet

Also included in today’s news drop was the official reveal of some Paradox Pokémon! You can see the official artwork of Great Tusk, Scream Tail, Roaring Moon, Iron Treads, Iron Bundle and Iron Valiant below.
