Pokemon Scarlet and Violet Quaxly Evolutions

Quaxly is the Water starter Pokemon in Scarlet and Violet, and is all around cooler than Ducklett. This Pokemon evolves into Quaxwell and then Quaquaval and has the standard ability Torrent. Here’s a quick look at Quaxly’s stage one and stage two:

Quaxly evolves into Quaxwell at level 16 and remains a mono Water-type. It has a slightly higher Attack than Special Attack so keeping moves like Low Sweep and Aqua Cutter is the best choice. Aqua Jet is useful since this Pokemon isn’t very fast.

Generation IX marks the return of dual type final evolutions. Quaxwell evolves into Quaquaval at level 36 and gains Fighting secondary typing. It has base attack of 120 and access to Liquidation and Close Combat, giving it some competitive potential although it’s slower than Barraskewda, which has a similar moveset.
