Pokemon Scarlet and Violet Leaks – Gameplay Elements

While we don’t know the name of the region, leakers have revealed the following information about the area we’ll be exploring.

  • Paldea is the region’s name in Japanese. Paldea is intended to be larger than Hisui, including the sea and islands.
  • The Regional Pokedex will contain 400+ Pokemon, with approximately 120-140 being brand-new Pokemon. As a result, one of these new Pokemon will be our 1,000th.
  • There will be three major cities and nine smaller towns.
  • There are three “routes” or “quests” that must be completed in order to complete the game. Regrettably, the leaker has not been more specific about what that means.

The Gyms of the region can be completed in any order, but there is no level scaling, so you may find yourself far too powerful for a gym. These Gym leaders will have second jobs that are related to their typings. So far, we know that one is an Ice Skier and the other is an Electric Streamer. In addition to traditional Gyms, there will be a classic Elite Four, one of whom appears to be a child.

You can take care of and wash your Pokemon while you’re at the Pokemon Picnic. They will recover their HP and value of friendship by doing this. Additionally, this is how Pokemon eggs are acquired.

There will be an auction house where various items will be available for purchase. The Rotom Catalogue is one of the known items that will be included in this auction. There is no new Rotom form in Scarlet and Violet, but it was apparently considered at one point.

Multiplayer will be available in both online and local play, allowing up to four trainers to explore the same world.

Features that will be returning

  • Raid Battles will remain multiplayer.
  • Alpha Pokemon will return, but with a new name.
  • Mass outbreaks
  • Size variations of Pokemon
  • Instead of riding a bike, you’ll be able to ride Koraidon/Miraidon. Riding these dragons will also make climbing, swimming, and flying easier. You will have early access to this riding mechanic, but you will not be able to use Koraidon/Miraidon in your party until later.
  • Trainers will be able to customize their appearance, but not as extensively as in previous games.
  • The Move Learning system from Pokemon Legends Arceus
  • Only one Pokemon can follow you at a time, and they cannot follow you inside.
  • Pokemon Legends Arceus evolution style where you can wait and evolve your pokemon from the menu.

Features that will not be returning

  • Mega Evolutions
  • Fossil Pokemon
  • Fishing
  • Pokemon Legends Arceus’s catching style
  • There are no new evolution stones
  • Breeding Pokemon will be replaced by the Pokemon Picnic

Pokemon Scarlet and Violet Leaks – New Pokemon Mechanics

Paradox Pokemon

There will be new Pokemon that are devolved or evolved versions of existing Pokemon. These Pokemon will have their own Pokedex entry. The Past Paradox Pokemon will only be available in Scarlet, while the Future Paradox Pokemon will only be available in Violet.

These Past/Future Pokemon will appear alongside their modern counterparts. They have unique names and numbers in the Pokedex. According to current estimates, there will be 8-9 Future Species. They will appear in the endgame area.

Past Paradox Pokemon (Exclusive to Scarlet)

Future Paradox Pokemon (Exclusive to Violet)




Gallade (Will have combined elements of Gallade and Gardevoir and will be based on an archer)


Gen 5 bug Pokemon

Pseudo-legendary (Possibly Salamance)

Pseudo-legendary (Possibly Salamance)

Volcarona (Will receive both)

Volcarona (Will receive both)

“Sumo-Pokemon” (Hariyama?)

Some legendary Pokemon will receive ancient/future species, but it’s unclear whether this will be saved for DLC/Events. There will be two Pokemon that are both Future and Ancient. Volcarona is one, and the other will be a Gen 2 Pokemon. Salamance will be one of the pseudo-legendary Pokemon with an Ancient or Future species. It is unknown which type it will be or which other pseudo-legendary will take on a new form.

Convergent Species

Convergent Species will be another new type of Pokemon. These evolved in different ways, resulting in vastly different paths.


Crystallization is another new mechanic for Pokemon Scarlet and Violet. The Pokemon will get a crystal shell around them if they use an item. It will boost a specific type of move once in this mode. It enables them to get STAB on moves that they would not normally be able to. Unlike Gigantamax or Mega Evolutions, which are only active for a short period of time, this would be active until they were returned to the ball or the battle was over.

How Many Pokemon Do We Already Know About?

From all of the leaks so far, assuming they are true, we know about the following:

  • 50 completely new Pokemon and lines
  • 6 cross-generation evolutions
  • 5 Ancient Pokemon
  • 6 Future Pokemon
  • 1 Convergent Species
