All Pokemon games feature exclusives. It has been kind of a tradition, now that there are two versions of each one. Splitting Pokemon into two games can be hard for players to decide which one to choose. So to make sure that you grab the version that suits you, we’ve compiled a list of all Pokemon Scarlet & Violet exclusive pokemons.

In addition to version-exclusive Pokemon, Scarlet & Violet are also introducing a few other differences depending on what version you pick up. New school uniforms, professors, books, and many more. To find out exactly what you’re getting in each of these versions, keep reading.

Scarlet and Violet Exclusive Pokemons

There are always version-exclusive Pokemon in Pokemon games that release as a pair. The idea is, of course, to encourage a sense of community alongside the drive to catch them all. Below, there are many other exclusives other than the “Box Legendaries” and late-game “Paradox Forms“.
