The Pokémon series is known for its exciting gameplay and creature collecting. A big part of this is showing off your Pokémon to your friends, whether it be battling or trading. This may leave you wondering if there is trading in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet.
The answer is yes—there is trading in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet. The second trailer for Pokémon Scarlet and Violet shows trading at the one-minute and thirty-nine-second mark. But, this raises more questions as to the extent and type of trading in-game.
Is Global Trading returning in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet?
Global Trading is a recurring feature in the Pokémon series, and you may be wondering if it is returning to Pokémon Scarlet and Violet. Unfortunately, there is no official confirmation if it is in the new titles. Global Trading has not been in Pokémon games since before the release of Pokémon Sword and Shield.
Is there Wonder Trade in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet?
Wonder Trade was first introduced in Pokémon X and Y and was eventually replaced with Surprise Trade in Pokémon Sword and Shield. At this time, there is no clear answer as to if this trading system will return in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet.
It is possible that these systems may return, return with a new change, or be replaced with an entirely new trading system. Regardless of what system The Pokémon Company implements, you will be able to use Pokémon Home to trade and move to Pokémon Scarlet and Violet.
