Pokemon Scarlet and Violet exclusives between the two versions are something we can expect to see when this new generation of games launches. Pokemon Scarlet and Violet are continuing the tradition of Pokemon games launching as two different versions of essentially the same game because since day one with Pokemon Red and Blue, there have been Pokemon exclusive to either game. Here is everything we know about the differences between the games so far, these are the Pokemon Scarlet and Violet exclusives.

  • With a new generation comes a new Pokedex, and we have gathered all the information available on it so far. To see what you can expect in the new games, check out Pokemon Scarlet and Violet Pokedex: What we know so far.

Unfortunately, we don't have much information on which Pokemon will be exclusive to each version. But, there are a few things we can assume based on previous knowledge. First of all, we have the version exclusive legendary Pokemon. Every generational Pokemon game has had an exclusive legendary Pokemon on the cover, this will be the case with Pokemon Scarlet and Violet.

As for the other version exclusive Pokemon between the games, we have not had any confirmation one way or another. Some Pokemon confirmed to be in the game have been exclusive to games in the past. For example, we know Larvitar is in the game, and that Pokemon has been exclusive in Pokemon Diamond and in Pokemon Y. Several Pokemon have been version exclusives across multiple generations but we will have to wait and see how this plays out in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet.

One thing we do know is that this new generation of games is taking some of the new mechanics introduced in Pokemon Legends: Arceus and integrating them into the main series. While the upcoming games aren’t likely to be exactly like Arceus, one thing that game introduced was the Linking Cord item, which was used to evolve Pokemon that classically need to be traded to trigger evolution. Perhaps this means the Pokemon games are moving away from some of these version traditions? We will have to wait and see.

  • One of the best parts of any Pokemon game is the charming and cheerful cast of characters. For all the info we currently have, check out Pokemon Scarlet and Violet Characters: What We Know So Far.

Pokemon Scarlet and Violet Exclusives: Legendaries

Thanks to the second official trailer for Pokemon Scarlet and Violet we have got our first good look at what the new Scarlet and Violet legendaries are. The two new legendaries are called Koraidon and Miraidon and each will have exclusivity to each game.

Koraidon will be the Pokemon Scarlet exclusive legendary and Miraidon will be the Pokemon Violet exclusive legendary.

At this current time, we're not sure if there will be any other legendary Pokemon added to the game but if there is, there will likely be version exclusivity with those also.

Beyond the Pokemon themselves, we know at least one other exclusive feature between the versions. We have seen the player characters wearing what looks like a uniform, possibly for school or maybe some trainer organisation. Regardless of what the uniform is for, we do know that there are different uniforms for each version of the game.

 

In Pokemon Scarlet, trainers wear scarlet shorts. As for Pokemon Violet, you will never guess what colour their shorts are. This is the first time there have been specific outfits relating to the different versions, leading some to speculate that perhaps the player’s rival will be a part of the opposite school/club/organisation.

That is everything we know so far about Pokemon Scarlet and Violet version exclusives. We will be back to update this as more news is revealed, so stay tuned for more Pokemon Scarlet and Violet information. In the meantime, let's have some fun with the new starters in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet Starting Trio: Toot or Boot?
