Pokémon Scarlet and Violet launch Generation IX by building on the previous two third-person outings with a full-on open world adventure set in the Paldea region, inspired by the Iberian Peninsula. Though the largely open nature and storyline is considered to be a huge improvement, the games sadly suffer from overall spotty performance as well as a variety of graphical glitches.

Unobtainable Shiny Pokémon
*Unobtainable transfer only shinies: Meloetta, Hoopa, Volcanion, Magearna, Kubfu, Urshifu, Zarude, Glastrier, Spectrier, Calyrex, Enamorus and Pokéball Vivillon.
For the sake of consistency, every Pokémon in every Pokémon game is given a Shiny variant. Most Shiny Pokémon have been obtainable through random chance encounters or event distributions, including most Legendaries. However, a few Pokémon cannot be obtained in this form without hacking, and as a consequence normal players would never be able to see their Shiny coloration. The following are currently unavailable:
- Gimmighoul (Roaming Form).
- The Treasures of Ruin quartet: Wo-Chien, Chien-Pao, Ting-Lu, and Chi-Yu.
- The box Legendaries, Koraidon and Miraidon.
- Walking Wake and Iron Leaves.
As usual for new Pokémon games, some moves have been entirely dummied-out and are unavailable. However, some Pokémon are able to learn certain moves through Egg Moves, but are currently unable to learn these moves as there is no Pokémon that can pass down the move to them.
|No legal donors as of the release of The Teal Mask.
Certain Pokémon are usually unable to obtain specific Egg Moves without the use of a Mirror Herb, but certain very specific encounters come with the move already, allowing for the Egg Move to be transferred down naturally.
|Available from a Fixed Encounter Grafaiai.
|Available from a 2 star encounter with Magnemite.
|Available from a 2 star encounter with Magnemite.
Unused Pokémon Data
Unused Gift Pokémon
Present in eventAddPokemon.bin is data for two unused Gift Pokémon: a Level 90 Quagsire and a Level 80 Yanma.
Beyond their high levels, Yanma's inclusion here is especially strange given it isn't included in the base game's Pokédex, though it would be added in the Teal Mask expansion. While Quagsire is obtainable in the base game through evolving a Johtonian Wooper (obtainable via an in-game trade), the data for this gift version remains unused.
Unused Wild Gimmighoul Levels
Gimmighoul can be found in chests scattered across various parts of the Paldea Region, with each static encounter ranging from being between Levels 5-60. However, data exists for encountering these Gimmighoul at Level 1, despite this never occurring.
Unused Placeholder Model
Prior to v1.2.0, there was a model of Pikachu (complete with rigging and textures) in place of Walking Wake and Iron Leaves. It is identical to the regular model of Pikachu, including the ability to play animations.
Koraidon & Miraidon Ride Forms
Koraidon and Miraidon's Ride forms are fully functional as individual Pokemon when hacked into the game. All forms use the same model from the special rideable Koraidon/Miraidon found at the beginning of the game. They have no Shiny forms and their stats are identical to their Apex Build and Ultimate Mode, respectively. They use the same cries sounded when using the "Let's Go!" auto-battle feature, even during battle. While Koraidon's animations are largely functional, Miraidon can occasionally T-pose, and has some animations seemingly copied from Koraidon. This most commonly happens with the "Let's Go!" and Picnic features.
Some battle animations are absent, such as when they use their signature moves, Collision Course and Electro Drift, respectively; however, others exist for both, such as a biting attack animation. When Terastallized, they will wear their Tera Jewels backwards. While Koraidon has no animation when the Tera Jewel glows, Miraidon does. In the party menu, their icons are offset, likely due to being intended for the slot used by the player in the normal game.
If used with the Synchro Machine from the Indigo Disk DLC, they are fully functional, with animations for battling, walking, and running. Curiously, in this setting, Miraidon walks on all fours, akin to Koraidon.
Koraidon and Miraidon have unused dex entry data for the base version of their low-power "ride form". It is currently unknown what this data would be used for.
The ecology and other data about this Pokémon are unknown. It was named Koraidon by the professor who discovered it.
It has similar characteristics to a creature described in an old book as the Winged King.
Its characteristics match those of a mysterious object recorded in an old expedition journal as the Iron Serpent.
It was given the name Miraidon by the professor who discovered it. Its ecology and other details are unknown.
There are some discrepancies in height and weight:
- Each Ride build of Koraidon is 11'6" / 3.5m tall, which makes it taller than the Apex Build, being 8'02" / 2.5m. Curiously, this makes the Ride builds of Koraidon as tall as Ultimate Mode Miraidon.
- Each Ride mode of Miraidon is 9'2" / 2.7m tall, which is smaller than the Ultimate Mode, being 11'6" / 3.5m tall.
Alternate Form Names
Since Koraidon's and Miraidon's various "ride forms" can't be viewed in the Pokédex, the text strings for their names go unused.
A variety of placeholder graphics for different purposes.
Placeholder type icons. These assets could be seen in game if the player were to enter certain menus, as the assets are placed there while the actual assets that are used load. Additionally Pokémon without a type due to losing it via moves can cause these assets to load.
Placeholder Pokémon icon.
Placeholder status condition icon.
Placeholder League Card background.
Placeholder map screen graphics.
Placeholder Pokédex animation textures.
Eight copies of a placeholder tip screen.
Placeholder TM Machine icon.
Placeholder customization graphics, for clothing and hair salons.
A set of 18 placeholder character icons, labeled 00_00, 00_01, 00_02, 01_00, and so on.
Included in Hypno's female data (pm0097/pm0097_01_00) is a texture featuring Hypno's official artwork with a poorly-drawn female symbol on the bottom-right corner. This texture is never seen on the female Hypno model, however.
These two items have no names or descriptions, so their purpose is unknown.
A Baguette is automatically used when making a sandwich and cannot be obtained as a bag item.
|A long loaf sliced into top and bottom halves. Its aroma of wheat and its straightforward, salty flavor make it pair well with all kinds of sandwich ingredients.
As usual, data for many items from past games can be found in the game. Since the item icons have been completely redrawn, most of these old items use a dummy icon instead.
Internal Pokemon Name Oddities
- While most Pokemon up to those introduced in Sword & Shield are labelled with their official Japanese names, Zarude's entry is simply labelled "m23", a reference to Zarude being the star Pokemon of the 23rd animated movie, Secrets of the Jungle.
- The internal names for Toedscool and Toedscruel are OKAKINGU & OKAGYARADOSU respectively, suggesting that they were originally planned as Convergent counterparts for Magikarp and Gyarados, before eventually changing to Tentacool and Tentacruel.
- Entries for Walking Wake & Iron Leaves, Paradox Pokemon who weren't implemented until the 1.2.0 update, existed in the base game, labelled "AKETUBAN" & "BKETUBAN". KETUBAN (Ketsuban) translates to "missing number", commonly abbreviated as MissingNo.
- The entries for Roaring Moon & Iron Valiant are amusingly labelled "AAAAA" & "BBBBB".
Having more detail is always a good thing.
Specifically: List the move-compatibility changes.

- An exploit making it possible to clone the special rideable Koraidon/Miraidon via bypassing the restriction on sending it to your boxes with well-timed button presses was removed (though the item-duplication method utilizing said clones was not, so it can still be used by players who had used the exploit before applying the update).
- The glitched fixed RNG in the Battle Stadium was patched.
- Unspecified bug fixes.
|This needs some investigation.
Discuss ideas and findings on the talk page.

Went live on February 27, 2023.

- The news screen now shows when connecting to the internet through a menu that is not the Poké Portal.
- Multiple fixes to Tera Raids that would halt/break the raid:
- The Tera Raid Pokémon's health bar would not properly show the health of the Pokémon when hit with certain moves (Play Rough, for example).
- In 7-star raids, all Pokémon on the player's side could faint despite the health bar suggesting that the Pokémon still had HP remaining.
