Sprigatito (Japanese: ニャオハ Nyahoja) is a Grass-type Pokémon introduced in Generation IX.

Along with Fuecoco and Quaxly, Sprigatito is one of three starter Pokémon of Pokémon Scarlet and Violet.

Along with Fuecoco and Quaxly, it was the first Generation IX Pokémon to be revealed to the public on February 27, 2022, through a Pokémon Presents video presentation.

Biology

Sprigatito is a quadrupedal feline Pokémon covered in pale green fur. The fur's composition is similar to that of plants, allowing it to absorb sunlight for energy.[1] It has green ears with pale green insides, a tuft of fur on the front of its chest and a green marking around its pink eyes and nose that resemble leaves. When its mouth is open, two pointed teeth can be seen in its upper jaw. It has a fluffy tail and small paws with no visible toes.

Sprigatito is capricious and attention-seeking, and it tends to sulk if ignored by people. Sprigatito can rub its paws together to unleash a sweet, therapeutic aroma that mesmerizes anyone near it and causes its foes to stop battling. It can absorb moisture into its fur by grooming it, which helps it to perform photosynthesis.[1]

Trivia

Origin

Sprigatito appears to be based on a long-haired kitten.

Name origin

Sprigatito may be a combination of sprig and gatito (Spanish for kitten).

Nyahoja may be a combination of ニャー nyā (the sound a cat makes) and hoja (Spanish for leaf). It may also involve 小 o (small) and 葉 ha (leaf).
