I’m a gamer, always have been.

Pokemon Scarlet & Violet Makes Paldean Wooper First Poison Ground Type Since Gen 1

A Pokemon Presents earlier this week revealed a shedload more details about Scarlet & Violet, the next titles in the main series of games launching this November. Among those new details was a first look at Paldean Wooper, a regional variant of the gen two Pokemon that will mark a first in the series for more than 25 years.

As highlighted by GamesRadar when spotted on the Scarlet & Violet website, Paldean Wooper is a poison ground type. Not particularly noteworthy until you go back and find the last time Pokemon introduced a poison ground type to its roster was during the original batch of 150 monsters. The new Wooper will join an incredibly short list made up of Nidoqueen, Nidoking, and until now, no other Pokemon whatsoever.
