Will Scarlet and Violet have all Pokémon? Here’s what’s confirmed

The release of Pokemon Scarlet and Violet is fast approaching, and it remains unclear if the game will have all Pokemon.

The Paldea region will be the stage for Pokemon Scarlet and Violet, the first installment of Pokemon’s ninth generation. This region is based in the Iberian Peninsula with deserts, mountains, and valleys.

Pokemon Scarlet and Violet feature considerable upgrades to the Pokemon universe, like the Terastal Phenomenon and the TM Machines. These changes, combined with the fact that Pokemon Scarlet and Violet are open world, guarantee a new experience for players. An experience that includes plenty of new Pokemon, but only a fraction of over 900 Pokemon are confirmed.

Just 18 Pokemon native to the region, two legendaries, and three starters have been revealed. The list contains the most common types like water, fire, grass, electric, and normal. One of the Pokemon natives to the Paldea region is Farigiraf, the evolution of Girafarig.

It is expected that more Pokemon from the Paldea region will be revealed at a later date. In previous generations, the game has introduced between 72 (VI generation) and 156 (V generation) new Pokemon to the Pokedex.

From this existing collection, over 100 Pokemon like Makuhita, Luxio, Pikachu, and Eevee will be part of Pokemon Scarlet and Violet.

Which Pokemon are not in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet

Around 800 Pokemon from other regions are not confirmed in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet. Considering that the game is an open world without a linear storyline, it is possible for more Pokemon to be added in the future. Players will have plenty of opportunities to complete their regional Pokedex, but a national option probably won’t be in the game at the start.

Each version of the game has exclusive Pokemon. In Pokemon Scarlet, the exclusive ones are Larvitar, Pupitar, Tyranitar, Stonjourner, and Armarouge. Players that pick up Pokemon Violet will find Bagon, Shelgon, Salamence, and Ceruledge. Both version of the ninth generation games will release on November 18.
