Choose wisely

With the introduction of three-way Splatfests in Splatoon 3 and Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet releasing in November, it was hoped we would get a Splatfest that compels players to choose between the Paldean starters and… it’s happening, sort of. This November, although it’s made to look like players will need to choose between Sprigatito, Fuecoco and Quaxly, it’s actually a case of choosing your preferred starter type, Grass, Fire and Water and then battling it out in a Splatfest starting on November 11, 2022.

Still, the news doesn’t just stop there. It has been revealed that in Japan, the Pokémon Centre will be selling physical t-shirts based on those appearing in Splatoon 3, whereas in America, Nintendo’s NY store will be distributing them at a later time.

  1. When I first heard about this I thought it was going to be a “starter pokemon” thing to promote scarlet and violet but the pokemon type seems way more adequate, might as well give it a try (despite not being a pokemon fan)
