All Version-Exclusives in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet [Updated]

Which version will you choose?

Catching all the Pokémon in Scarlet and Violet is one of my main goals, and with the expansion of The Teal Mask DLC, there are even more to catch. However, some Pokémon are exclusive to Scarlet or Violet, and this is true of the new and returning Pokémon found in the DLC. Let's look at the Scarlet and Violet version exclusives you'll need to trade for to complete your Pokédex.

All Exclusive Pokémon in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet

Pokémon Scarlet and Violet each have Pokémon that are exclusive to their respective versions. These are Pokémon that you can only encounter in that version. This means players in the other version will have to trade to get their hands on Pokémon Scarlet and Violet's exclusives, especially if you want the complete Pokédex and the Shiny Charm.

Pokémon Scarlet and Violet's exclusives were expanded by the Teal Mask DLC, though we do not yet know all the Pokémon added to either version. We will update this list once we discover all new version exclusives as we play through the Kitakami area.
