Pokemon Scarlet & Violet players have their sights set on Quaxly, Quaxwell, and Quaquaval on their team. A starter Pokemon like Quaxly is rare, but you will need one to start your journey in the Paldea region. Here’s all you need to know about Quaxly and its evolutions in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet.

The starter Pokemon of Gen 9 have become the talk of the town among Scarlet and Violet players. Among the three Pokemon you can choose for your journey through the Paldea region, the Water-type starter Quaxly seems to have the most interesting personality.

Quaxly is a small duckling-like Pokemon. It is obsessed with keeping itself neat and cleaning the tuft of feathers on its head. Players are eager to see if Quaxly maintains its quirky personality until its final stage of evolution. This makes Quaxly one of the most sought-after Pokemon in the Paldea region.

So here’s everything you need to know to obtain a Quaxly and evolve it into Quaxwell and Quaquaval in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet.

The Water-type starter Quaxly can be added to a player’s team by choosing it as a starter Pokemon or trading for it.

Once a player obtains a Quaxly, they can breed it in the Pokemon Picnic. This is a very popular way to get a shiny Quaxly or one with better stats.

How to evolve Quaxly into Quaxwell in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet

Quaxly evolves into Quaxwell at level 16 as you go through your Pokemon Scarlet and Violet adventure.

Quaxwell is a duck-like Pokemon that has a round blue crest on its head and its feet resemble ballet shoes. It seems to have a dancer theme going on in its design. Maybe the final evolution will tell!

Quaxwell evolves into Quaquaval at level 36 and is an amazing addition to a player’s team in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet.

Quaquaval is a Water/Fighting-type with a humanoid design and a series of teardrop-shaped feathers on its back, resembling a peacock. The carnival dancer theme is prominent not only in its design but also when it battles. Its signature move involves Quaquaval performing dance steps and is called Aqua Step.

Quaxly, Quaxwell, and Quaquaval Abilities in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet

The Quaxly family will have one of two Abilities when players receive it as a starter Pokemon or hatch it from an egg: Torrent or Moxie.

Torrent powers up Water-type moves when the user’s HP is low, while Moxie boosts the user’s Attack stat when it knocks out an opponent.

Moxie is one of the best Abilities for attacking in a battle. As Quaquaval keeps on knocking out more opponents, it becomes a bigger threat to the rest of the opponent’s team. In addition, Quaquaval gets good attacking coverage because of the Fighting-type. So Quaquaval is one of the most useful Pokemon to have in Scarlet and Violet.
