Here’s What Pokemon Mascot Costumes for Fuecoco, Sprigatito, and Quaxly Look Like

On November 11, 2022, the Nintendo Store in New York hosted a Pokemon Scarlet and Violet related event. People could attend and see the series’ latest mascot costumes. These are the large, cuddly suits people will wear based on certain Pokemon. To celebrate Pokemon Scarlet and Violet’s launch, the Fuecoco, Sprigatito, and Quaxly costumes appeared for the first time.

With Pokemon mascot costumes, each character is essentially reimagined as a bipedal one, even if they normally wouldn’t be. While both Fuecoco and Quaxly normally always appear on two legs, this does mark a first for Sprigatito. People attending the event could take pictures of the characters from a distance. It was also possible for people to pose with them.

Plenty of other Pokemon also appeared as mascot costumes. For example, there are ones of some of the most popular characters, like Pikachu and Eevee. There are also ones of other characters that showed up at regional events in Japan, like Slowpoke and both standard and Alolan Vulpix. In 2019, even Obstagoon ended up inspiring one. It also isn’t uncommon for starter Pokemon to get them. The Pokemon Sword and Shield Grookey, Scorbunny, and Sobble starters did too.

Pokemon Scarlet and Violet will debut on November 18, 2022.
