The next Splatfest will answer an age-old, hotly debated question: Which Pokémon starter type is the best?
Splatoon 3 introduced three-way turf wars to its competitive Splatfest events, making it the perfect venue to settle this debate. Grass-type, Fire-type, and Water-type teams will face off starting on Nov. 11. You’re not just playing for your team, but for the love of your first and/or favorite starter Pokémon. (Go Fire-type team!)
Grass-type. Fire-type. Water-type. This debate has perplexed our great philosophers for ages. Let’s settle it.
The Splatoon x Pokémon special #Splatfest collaboration begins 11/11 at 4pm PT!

This Splatfest will also coincide with the release of the newest Pokémon games, Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet, which are set to hit Nintendo Switch just a week later on Nov. 18. Like basically every other mainline Pokémon game, Scarlet and Violet will prompt players to pick from one of three starters — Water, Grass, or Fire. And if you’re torn between the adorable Sprigatito, the feisty Fuecoco, or the stylish Quaxly, why not let the results of this upcoming Splatfest help you decide?
