Who are the starters in Pokémon Sun & Moon?

The starters for Gen 7 might not be the most iconic among all characters in the franchise (that honor belongs to Gen 1 starters), but they are popular in their own right—particularly because of their simpler but fitting designs. Here’s a quick look at all the Pokémon starters in Sun and Moon.

Rowlet is a Grass/Flying-type Pokémon that looks like a plain owl with a bow tie made of leaves. It evolves into Dartrix upon reaching level 17 and then into the Grass/Ghost-type Decidueye, starting at level 34. With its awesome Ghost-type and signature arrow shot, Decidueye arguably has the coolest final evolution design of the group as well (never mind that it isn't the most powerful).


Pokémon Gen 7 Starter Litten

Litten is a Fire-type cat Pokémon featuring fur with a unique color palette. It evolves into Torracat at level 17, then finally into the powerful Fire/Dark-type Incineroar starting at level 34. If you're a big fan of Gen 3's Blakizen, then you will want Litten and its evo-line in your party. Yes, Incineroar stands on two feet.

Popplio is a Water-type Pokémon resembling a happy seal. It evolves first into the water-type Pop Star Pokémon Brionne at level 17, then into the Water/Fairy-type Primarina starting at level 34. Primarina arguably has the best dual type in the list, with little-to-no resistances and access to Fairy-type moves, which are a destructive force of their own.
