Pokémon Scarlet and Violet: All Version Differences and Exclusive Versions So Far


Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet have been officially announced, complete with a reveal trailer featuring this time a first look at the starters.

These two games represent the start of Generation 9, which is sure to bring its own competitive meta, anime, and even Pokémon card series to the franchise, and we can’t wait. It’ll be a while before we can actually play these games, though, so for now we’ll be scanning every second of the reveal trailer (and subsequent trailers) for new locations, features, and of course, Pokémon.

As every Pokémon player knows, every generation comes with two games to choose from. This time it’s Scarlet and Violet (is this maybe a recall to Red and Blue?). With two different versions, there are always some differences between the games and Pokémon that are exclusive to each. For example, Larvitar is almost always exclusive to one game when two are released. Now that Larvitar is all over the Scarlet and Violet trailer, we wouldn’t be surprised if it becomes exclusive again.

It can be hard to keep up with all these exclusive offers, but luckily we’ve got you covered. Here are all version differences and exclusive Pokémon in Scarlet and Violet – this is a living list, so check back often to see what new things we’ve learned.

Start Outfits

With just a reveal trailer and an official Pokémon Scarlet and Violet page from Nintendo to continue at this point, the basic outfits are the only difference we’ve seen between the two versions so far. To no one’s surprise, the starter outfit in Scarlet features, well, scarlet, and the Violet starter outfit is violet – wild, right? Here’s a look at the two different outfits in screenshots from the games.
