Pokemon will never drop its tradition of locking certain pocket creatures to a different edition than yours. It makes them extra money, anyway. And unsurprisingly, it’s also happening in the recent The Teal Mask DLC, although to a way lesser extent. Regardless of that, some Pokemon can only be found in certain versions of Pokemon Scarlet and Violet, and here they are.
All Version Exclusives in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet The Teal Mask
When playing through Scarlet, you might have the chance to find these little guys right here.
But if you choose to ride a Violet living motorcycle, these are the Pokemon available to you.
Aipom and Gligar can be evolved naturally once you get them, so no need for three separate trades. Morpeko and Cramorant have no further forms, so don’t worry about them.
They can all be found rather early in both games, next to Mossui Town. I ran into both of my Violet exclusives in the Wistful Fields west of it, but I also witnessed Aipom on the road leading to the Kitakami Hall. The locations for Gligar and Cramorant should be roughly the same.
Fortunately, these are the only exclusives we have for now, so you won’t have to worry about searching and trading for more of them for a while. Or at least until The Indigo Disk comes out later during Winter this year.
So as soon as you get your hands on them, get a few extras to share with your friends who own a different version. Unless you’re like me and basically everyone you know (including you) has Violet as their game. Get ready to suffer a bit in that case.
The first half of the DLC increased the base Pokedex by almost 50%, and we can expect around the same amount of newcomers (or returners, whichever you prefer to call them) to join our team when the next one drops. For now, take a look at everything you can catch in Kitakami.
