Who doesn’t love Pokémon games? It’s one of the biggest video game franchises in the world, and with good reason. Each generation introduces new loveable ‘mon, and generation nine is no different. Not only that, but Pokémon Scarlet and Violet also take us to a new region, another exciting thing we all look forward to when it comes to ‘mon titles.
However, while both games in a generation share a lot of similarities, such as the new starter ‘mon and the location in which they take place, they tend to differ in some ways too. So, we’ve decided to take a look at the Pokémon Scarlet and Violet differences. Knowing what these are can help you to determine which version you buy.
If you want to know more about generation nine, we suggest checking out our Pokémon Scarlet and Violet starters, Pokémon Scarlet and Violet legendaries, and Pokémon Scarlet and Violet new Pokémon guides.

Without further ado, here are the Pokémon Scarlet and Violet differences.
Pokémon Scarlet and Violet differences
For now, we don’t know a great deal about the Pokémon Scarlet and Violet differences. However, if previous generations are anything to go by, there will be at least a couple of things different between the games.
One of the differences between the two versions is the outfit that your avatar wears. Those in Scarlet have red clothing, while trainers in Violet have purple. You can see costumes in the tweet below.
Each game has a different professor. In Scarlet, it’s Professir Sada, while in Violet, you get to work with Professor Turo.

Again, we don’t know many details about generation nine, but all previous generations feature exclusive Pokémon. For example, in generation one (we’ll go with the Let’s Go remakes), you can get Vulpix in the Eevee variation and Growlithe in the Pikachu version. If you want both, you need to trade one with a friend.
The only differences we can be sure of so far are in terms of legendary Pokémon, with Scarlet receiving Koraidon, while Violet gets Miradon. As you can see above, while both are seemingly dragon-type creatures, there’s quite a big difference in style between the two, and we’re excited to find out the lore reasons for why.
