Differences & Exclusives in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet

A new Pokemon game is slated for the end of 2022. Titled Pokemon Scarlet & Violet, this game continues the long Pokemon (and Nintendo) tradition of releasing the same game split into two slightly different versions. This provides some nice variation and allows players to experience different content depending on which version of the game they are playing. Of course, it’s good to know what that content is beforehand so that you can make an informed decision about which one to buy – Pokemon Scarlet or Pokemon Violet. In this guide, we are going to go over all the differences and exclusives in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet.

So, let’s get into the differences themselves first.
