Pokemon Scarlet and Violet - Tier List

We may have a list for you if ever you’re struggling to choose which Pokemon to use. We would love to offer a helping hand with this tier list we came up with, so would you mind taking a look? Well, we gotta catch ‘em all, right, Trainers? This is a Pokemon Scarlet and Violet tier list, and maybe you can share yours below too!

A Tier List for Pokemon Scarlet and Violet

In this list, you can expect to see tiers from S down to F. Additionally, this is based on our research about these Pokemon, so you can follow if you just want to!

  • S Tier marks the strongest Pokemon to use, A Tier marks as strong still, B Tier should be good enough for battle, and C Tier should be on average. While Tiers D, E, and F will be combined into one which marks as the weakest to use, just so you know!
  • Additionally, do keep in mind that these Pokemon are the new addition to the Pokedex. These are the Generation 9 Pokemon found in Scarlet and Violet. Enjoy!

S Tier Pokemon

These Pokemon are the best to use in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet. Most of the creatures in this tier are the strongest of each evolution they have. Of course, the last form in evolution is the best one, right? BTW, this list is just written alphabetically.
