Soon after starting the Pokemon Scarlet & Violet DLC, you'll likely be wondering what the lovey-dovey Pokemon in The Teal Mask DLC is. As tasked by the love-struck couple you meet in the northwest of central Mossui Town, this small but brain-teasing side quest has you finding a Pokemon that's as lovey-dovey as they are before showing it to them. 

Whilst the boyfriend is sceptical, there is, in fact, one Pocket Monster that meets their criteria. So, let's get into the identity of the lovey-dovey Pokemon in Scarlet & Violet to complete this DLC side quest in The Teal Mask - along with its rewards.
