After Team Gear dominated the first official Splatoon 3 Splatfest, not a few weeks ago, the squids are back at it again revealing tonight that the next Splafest will be held on November 11 and be themed around the Pokémon series to celebrate the release of Pokémon Scarlet and Violet the following weekend!
Grass-type. Fire-type. Water-type. This debate has perplexed our great philosophers for ages. Let’s settle it.
The Splatoon x Pokémon special #Splatfest collaboration begins 11/11 at 4pm PT!

Inklings and Octolings will get to pick their favorite starter Pokémon type from Fire, Water and Grass and duke it out with the other two teams to find out which will be the very best. This is the second Pokémon themed Splatfest after the Pokémon Red vs. Pokémon Blue Splatfest in the original Splatoon game back in 2016. Pokémon Blue won that round but could the red hot fire make a comeback?
The Fire, Water and Grass Splafest begin in North America on November 11 at 4 PM PT with all regions getting the Splatfest around the same time.
