Pokémon Scarlet and Violet: every exclusive of each version and their differences

Here’s a list of every exclusive Pokémon in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, and we take a look at every difference between versions so you can choose.

As always, the main difference between both versions of the 9th generation of Pokémon is its Pokédex. Pokémon Scarlet and Violet each come with 25 exclusive creatures and we’re going to take a look at them. We also include regional formes, unique evolutions, and the new Paradox Pokémon, one of these new gen’s novelties that change between both versions and you can only capture once in predetermined places after finishing the game.

Pokémon Scarlet and Violet Professors

For the first time ever in the franchise, the Pokémon Professor that greets you to the new region (this time, Paldea) will change depending on which game you’re playing. You meet Prof. Sada in Pokémon Scarlet, and Prof. Turo will be your guide in Pokémon Violet.

Differences between Pokémon Scarlet and Violet

During the game, your character is a student of a certain academy in the city of Mesagoza, but this school will also change according to your version. In Pokémon Scarlet you attend Naranja Academy, while you go to Uva Academy in Violet. The main thing to take notice here is the uniforms and decorations around the school will change depending of which one you’re playing.

Legendary Pokémon

The most obvious difference is actually easily recognizable from the game covers. We’re talking about both legendaries of this generation: Koraidon (Pokémon Scarlet) and Miraidon (Pokémon Violet). These legendaries are more important than ever now, given that they also take the place of vehicles in the games through which you’ll make your way through the Paldea Region.

Same as with the professors, Sada and Turo, each of these two legendaries are designed with either futuristic and technologic themes (Pokémon Violet) or with a wild, primitive designed (Pokémon Scarlet).
