Nintendo announced the next Splatfest in Splatoon 3 will be a Splatoon x Pokémon collaboration. This Splatfest will settle the long-standing debate about which type of starter pokemon is best.
For those unaware, at the beginning of any Pokemon game, you get to choose one of three possible starter pokemon. Each starter pokemon is one of thee types: Grass-type, Fire-type, or Water-type, with each type having its own strengths and weaknesses.
Anyone with a Nintendo Switch Online membership can choose between the three types in this limited-time event. Once you have made your choice, you will participate in Splatfest Battles.
These battles will have you ink as much of the stage as possible without getting splatted yourself. At the end of the event, winners get announced and goodies are distributed. The winning side will get more than the two losing sides.
Splatoon 3 is available for the Nintendo Switch and this collaboration is in celebration of Pokemon Scarlet and Pokemon Violet launching on November 18th.
The Splatoon x Pokemon Splatfest will kick off Friday, November 11 at 4 p.m. PT (7 p.m EST). It will run until Sunday, November 13 at 4 p.m. PT (7 p.m. EST).
