Pokemon Scarlet and Violet exclusives list and differences

Posted on November 12, 2022 by (@NE_Brian) in Guides, Switch

Pokemon Scarlet Violet exclusives

With leaks and datamines happening for Pokemon Scarlet and Pokemon Violet over the past week or so, we now have the final exclusives list.

Going back to the series’ earliest days, some creatures could only be found in the wild depending on which version you were playing. The thought behind this is that it would encourage people to connect and communicate with each other. Even more than a couple of decades later, it’s still in place and we’ve ended up with two different versions of the latest Pokemon entry. It’s important to know which comes in each title since some fans will only pick up one version.

Pokemon Scarlet and Violet exclusives list

Pokemon Scarlet and Pokemon Violet won’t have every creature the series has seen, but it’s still a massive list. Also, if that wasn’t enough, over 100 brand new Pokemon have been created this time around. Only a small subset is exclusive to each version.

Exclusive Paradox list

Pokemon Scarlet and Pokemon Violet will also have exclusives for its Paradox Pokemon. Pokemon Scarlet has the Ancient Paradox versions while Pokemon Violet has the Future Paradox versions. We have the full list for each below.

Pokemon Scarlet Ancient Paradox list

  • Brute Bonnet (Amoonguss) with Grass/Dark Type
  • Flutter Mane (Misdreavus) with Ghost/Fairy Type
  • Great Tusk (Donphan) with Ground/Fighting Type
  • Roaring Moon (Salamence) with Dragon/Dark Type
  • Sandy Shocks (Magneton) with Electric/Ground Type
  • Scream Tail (Jigglypuff) with Fairy/Psychic Type
  • Slither Wing (Volcarona) with Bug/Fighting Type

Pokemon Violet Future Paradox list

  • Iron Bundle (Delibird) with Ice/Water Type
  • Iron Hands (Hariyama) with Fighting/Electric Type
  • Iron Jugulis (Hydreigon) with Dark/Flying Type
  • Iron Moth (Volcarona) with Fire/Poison Type
  • Iron Thorns (Tyranitar) with Rock/Electric Type
  • Iron Treads (Donphan) with Ground/Steel Type
  • Iron Valiant (Gallade/Gardevoir) with Fairy/Fighting Type

There’s a lot to learn about these forms, but currently we know that they have no relation to the Pokemon they’re based on (other than some resemblance in the design). In other words, they’re not an alternate form like a Mega Evolution, but something completely new.

Are there any other exclusives?

Outside of version exclusives for the actual creatures, there are a few other aspects to keep in mind. Players will have a different starting outfit depending on which game they are playing, and there’ll be a different professor (and different academy) in each one. We have more information in our pre-order bonus guide here.
