Pokemon Scarlet vs Violet

The upcoming Gen 9 Pokemon game has been revealed to be released later this year on November 18th, 2022. So far, we’ve seen multiple trailers that gives us a glimpse at what to expect from these games. Some fans may not know but Pokemon Scarlet and Violet isn’t just one game, it’s split up into two games, Pokemon Scarlet and Pokemon Violet. This has been a tradition since the first Pokemon games, Red and Green. But what’s the difference between Pokemon Scarlet and Violet and which one is better?


The first and one of the most important differences when choosing which Pokemon game to buy is which Legendary Pokemon you’ll get. In Pokemon Scarlet, you’ll be able to catch Koraidon and in Pokemon Violet, you’ll get Miraidon. If you prefer one’s Legendary design over the other, you should probably get the game respective to which Legendary you’ll get.

Character Customization Colors

From what we’ve seen in trailers and screenshots so far, it seems like the character customization is quite limited to orange or purple colors. This is because our trainer is wearing their school uniform that matches the color they’re supposed to be wearing. If you’re playing Scarlet, you’ll have an orange uniform and backpack. If you have Pokemon Violet, you’ll get a purple outfit.

Time Theories

With the game not being released yet, there are theories about what other exclusives we’ll see in these games. One theory is that we’ll see more information about the region’s past in Pokemon Scarlet, while seeing more into the future in Pokemon Violet. This is based on the Legendary designs and other information fans have dug up through trailers. Koraidon looks more like a traditional dragon, while Miraidon has futuristic jet thrusters. This may not be the only place we see this theme continue. For now, we’ll just have to wait and see.
