Pokemon Scarlet & Violet have introduced new ways to find Pokemon, and some are sneakier than others. Fans love the little details they find while exploring Paldea’s map.

Pokemon fans have been busy since the release of Scarlet & Violet, battling the Gen 9 Gym Leaders, discovering the secrets of the Great Paldea Crater and challenging Team Star. However, there are a few hidden Easter eggs to be found for those who simply enjoy the sprawling map.

Pokemon Scarlet & Violet offers players an open world map to explore. These areas don’t require loading screens as you travel from place to place, and Pokemon spawn in bands around the main character as they roam the region’s plains, mountains, and beaches.

While most members of the Paldea Pokedex spawn in the open in plain sight, there are a few species that are a little trickier – and they’re not just Ditto or Zorua, as fans are discovering.

Fan of Pokemon Scarlet & Violet will find a surprise under Wugtrio

In a Twitter message from Moesann17, the player shares a particularly shocking surprise when they encounter a Wugtrio. As they encounter the Cantaonian divergent, it speeds off to reveal a Pincurchin lurking beneath its rocky body.

Other Pokemon Scarlet & Violet players have shared similar experiences in the comments. Several show their own Wugtrio-turned-Pincurchin encounters, while others add other surprising finds. A fan shows a moment as they approach a random picnic table only to be challenged by the wild Goomy hanging on the tabletop.

Another shows off an encounter with a Chansey, but the Chansey’s image fades to reveal a stealthy Sableye when the player goes to attack it.

Each of these Pokemon in disguise offers Scarlet & Violet players a new layer of enjoyment. The detail of their existence in the world and how they hide in plain sight not only adds depth to each species, but also creates a great little surprise for trainers.
