Pokemon Violet and Pokemon Scarlet are pretty intense games – with two versions, 400 Pokemon, and an open world, it’s only natural that players will have questions. We’ve put together this list of the most pressing topics Pokemon Masters aspire to know before they start and things to know about Pokemon Violet and Scarlet even as they get deeper into the adventure.
What are the differences in version and exclusivity?
As with previous core Pokemon entries, Pokemon Scarlet and Pokemon Violet both feature Pokemon exclusive to each version to encourage trading between players. There are many more things beyond just the two legendaries of the chest, Coraidon and Meraidon, as well as a few other differences. For example, the clothes available in orange and the clothes in purple are purple, and the two professors you meet are different. There are quite a few differences too!
What are the evolutions of the starter scarlet and purple pokemon?
We all found out about Starter Pokemon Sprigatito, Fuecoco, and Quaxly quite early on, but you might need more information than just their cute builds to make your final decision – like evolutions and ultimate stats.
What about every other new Pokemon?
There are 107 new Pokemon (if you count all the new forms), and people have been curious about a Much of topics related to them.
What should I do first and in what order should I do the tasks and gyms?
After the first day of searching for the school’s introduction, Pokemon Scarlett and Violet really open up and let you go Anywhere. It is not surprising that players ask for some guidance. Pokemon Scarlet and Violet allow you to go anywhere, and while this is an exciting idea, Paldea’s layout doesn’t say which places are best to tackle first. We can help you with that.
Hint: You can ask Nurse Joy what to do next at any Pokémon Center, but she will recommend tasks based on proximity and then level – so she might recommend something that could be much higher than your level.
How do I change my school uniform?
Well, you’re kind of stuck with the school uniform, but there are quite a few school uniform styles to choose from and accessories to buy to make it your own! In short, you will need to press the left directional button to open the costume customization menu. From there, you can change your outfit style.
How do I get a shiny Pokemon?
Pokémon with very rare alternate colors are called “shiny Pokémon”. There is nothing different about them other than a different coat of paint, a sparkle when they enter battle, and a special tag on their summary page. They can be great looking, and you can increase your chances of being found!
Pokemon Violet and Scarlet’s outing system offers a great way to increase your chances of finding a Shiny, plus there’s an item called the Shiny Charm that passively increases your chances at all times – but you have to complete a Pokedex to get it! Shiny Charm makes it easier to hatch Shiny Pokemon when breeding Pokemon as well. There are more methods and tips in the complete guide.
I want to cheat – What are the answers to the exam?
We won’t tell – we’ve got all the answers for all your Pokemon Violet and Scarlet midterms and exams. And if you didn’t know, you can go back to the academy to take more lessons, learn some cool facts, and earn cool rewards.
What are those ominous black stakes and where can I find them all?
Here’s a hint – if you finish your history lessons and pass your history final, your teacher will tell you about its origins. If you want to skip all of that, of course you can – but know that you won’t be able to collect them all until most of Koraidon or Miraidon’s abilities have been unlocked.
How do I get more sandwich recipes?
Most sandwich recipes are learned by talking to the guy to the right of the counter at the Every Wich Way sandwich shop chain. Visit it after getting gym badges to get more. Your mom and some hikers will give you sandwich recipes.
What are these Gimmighoul chests?
You’ll find both a wandering Gimmighoul and a chest-shaped Gimmighoul all over Paldea. Pick up a chest skin and collect coins from any (and other sources) to evolve one!
