Pokemon Scarlet & Violet players have their sights set on capturing Sprigatito and its remarkable evolutions, Floragato and Meowscarada. Obtaining a rare and unique starter Pokemon like Sprigatito is at the top of every player’s to-do list. Here’s an in-depth guide that covers everything you need to know about the Sprigatito line.

The starter trio of the Paldea region has its own fanbase among Pokemon Scarlet and Violet players. Among these Pokemon, the Grass-type starter Sprigatito has seen a lot of hype due to its adorable design.

Sprigatito is a green, quadrupedal cat-like Pokemon. It is distinguished by a marking on its face that resembles a leaf. Keen-eyed players would remember that Gen 7 had another cat-like starter Pokemon Litten. This Fire-type starter eventually evolved into the bipedal Incineroar and so, players are curious if Sprigatito will have the same fate.

This guide will shed light on that as well as everything else you need to know about obtaining Sprigatito and its evolutions in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet.

Pokemon Scarlet and Violet players can get the Grass-type starter Sprigatito by choosing it as their starter Pokemon or trading for it with friends.

Players who choose Sprigatito as a starter or obtained it by trading can breed it in the Pokemon Picnic for a shiny Sprigatito or one with better stats.

How to evolve Sprigatito into Floragato in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet

As players continue to journey through the Paldea region with Sprigatito, it evolves into Floragato at level 16.

Floragato takes on a bipedal stance and now possesses a vine within its fur that has a pink flower at the end. This is an interesting development that lays the foundation for Sprigatito’s final form.

How to evolve Floragato into Meowscarada in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet

Meowscarada is the final evolution of Sprigatito.
Meowscarada’s name is a reference to the masquerade mask that is part of its face.

Floragato will evolve into Meowscarada at level 36.

Meowscarada is a Grass/Dark-type. This final stage of Sprigatito, like Incineroar, is a quadrupedal feline Pokemon. It is categorized as the Magician Pokemon and this is reflected in its signature move: Flower Trick. When Meowscarada uses this move, it throws a bouquet of flowers at the target with 100% accuracy.

Abilities of Sprigatito, Floragato & Meowscarada in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet

The Sprigatito family will have one of two Abilities when players receive it as a starter or hatch from an egg: Overgrow or Protean.

Overgrow powers up Grass-type moves when the user’s HP is low whereas Protean changes the user’s type to the type of the move it’s about to use.

Protean is among the most popular abilities among players who like to participate in Pokemon battles. Gen 9 nerfed Protean by making the ability work only once each time the user enters the battle. But that doesn’t make the ability any less worthy. Players love getting the STAB (Same Type Attack Bonus) on Meowscarada’s moves in battle. So it is of no surprise that players want to get themselves a Meowscarada for the Protean ability.

You have all the information you need to get yourself a Sprigatito that goes on to evolve into the formidable Meowscarada. Are you looking for more on Pokemon Scarlet and Violet? Then check out our guides:
