Pokemon Scarlet and Pokemon Violet Differences

There are some other differences between the two games. However, they are arguably minor differences compared to version-exclusive Pokemon. In Pokemon Scarlet, players meet Professor Sada, while Violet players meet Professor Turo. This is the first time two versions have two different professors in one generation.

Both versions have slightly different Pokemon Academy though this doesn’t mean much for the gameplay. Depending on your version, the school will be called Naranja Academy or Uva Academy, which means “orange” and “grape,” respectively, in Spanish.

Other differences are sure to be discovered by gamers now that Pokemon Scarlet and Pokemon Violet have been officially released into the wild. We’ll be keeping you updated on the exclusive Pokemon for each game.
