Paldean Wooper in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet
The very first Paldean form revealed for Pokemon Scarlet & Violet was the adorable Wooper. This Paldean variant of Wooper is a Poison/Ground-type with a brown color scheme and the abilities Poison Point and Water Absorb.
According to the Pokedex, Paldean Wooper used to live underwater, but after “losing in a struggle for territory” they began living in bogs on land. They cover their bodies in a poisonous film to stop them from drying out.
The original variant of Wooper traditionally evolves into Quagsire, so it seems safe to assume that there will either be a Paldean Quagsire or an entirely new evolution for Paldean Wooper in the Pokedex as well.
What are Paldean forms in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet?
Paldean forms are regional variants of Pokemon from previous generations that can only be found in the Paldea region. This is similar to the Alolan forms from Sun & Moon and the Galarian forms from Sword & Shield.
Although they show under the same Pokedex number as their original variants, Paldean forms have different types, different moves, and different appearances, which means they often feel like entirely new Pokemon.
So, there you have it, that’s everything we know about Paldean forms in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet so far.
