Pokémon Scarlet and Violet Introduce Grafaiai
The Pokémon Company and Game Freak released details on a new Pokémon appearing in the upcoming Pokémon Scarlet and Violet. Grafaiai is known as the Toxic Monkey Pokémon and is a Poison/Normal-type Pokémon.
Grafaiai is known to be moody, preferring to be alone, and is very territorial with other Pokémon. It uses its poison saliva, which change colour based on its diet, and will use it by spitting at prey or coating its claws with it. Grafaiai is nocturnal and will also use its saliva to mark its territory by painting on trees with it. The saliva not only attracts bug Pokémon with its scent, but also paralyses them.
Pokémon Scarlet and Violet will release worldwide for Nintendo Switch on November 18, 2022. The games are set in the new region of Paldea. Players attend an academy in the region’s largest city, Mesagoza, and are sent on an independent study “Treasure Hunt”. In addition, they will also go through the traditional Gym Leader and Pokémon League, where players attempt to defeat eight Gym Leaders from towns around the region.
