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.

Hmmm...
To do:
  • Two placeholder Pokémon slots located in the middle of the Paradox Pokémon, likely meant for future DLC additions.
  • As usual, there are tons of leftover items and text strings from previous Pokémon games.
  • Any unused moves or abilities that had their descriptions updated?
  • Various unused trainer teams.
  • Text changes between v1.0.0 and v1.0.1.

Unused Text

Koraidon & Miraidon (Ride Form) Dex Entries

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.

Koraidon & Miraidon 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.

Unobtainable Pokémon

Gimmighoul (Roaming Form) is currently unobtainable. It will most likely be made available once Pokémon GO connectivity is introduced sometime in 2023.

Shiny Pokémon

Careful, you'll lose an eye.
This page or section needs more images.
There's a whole lotta words here, but not enough pictures. Please fix this.

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:

  • The box Legendaries, Koraidon and Miraidon.
  • The Treasures of Ruin quartet: Ting-Lu, Chien-Pao, Wo-Chien, and Chi-Yu.
  • Gimmighoul (Roaming Form), Gimmighoul (Chest Form), and Gholdengo.

Unobtainable Marks

Multiple new marks and ribbons were added with the release of Scarlet and Violet. While most can be found randomly on wild Pokémon or rewarded for specific feats, there are a number of marks and ribbons that are currently unobtainable without hacks. While most of these are carryovers from past games that will become available once Pokémon Home support is added to the game in the near future, there are a few newly-added marks that are totally impossible to obtain by any means. It is currently unknown if any of them will be made available in future patches.

Icon Ribbon/Mark Name Description Title Conferred Notes
PokemonSV Item Finder Mark.png Itemfinder Mark A mark for a Pokémon that likes to pick things up. the Treasure Hunter This mark is notable in that Hassel, the art teacher NPC, specifically mentions it when telling the player about some of the different marks in the game, and implies that it is obtainable. However, there are currently no functions in the game for actually setting the mark on wild Pokémon or the player's Pokémon.

PkmnSV Alpha Mark.png Alpha Mark A mark for a Pokémon that was an alpha. the Former Alpha This mark will most likely be automatically given by Home when transferring an Alpha Pokémon from Pokémon Legends: Arceus, but it is currently unobtainable.
PkmnSV Hisui Ribbon.png Hisui Ribbon A Ribbon awarded to a Pokémon that posed for a photograph in Hisui in the distant past. of the Distant Past Similarly to the above mark, this ribbon will likely be given by Home to certain Pokémon that were transferred from Legends: Arceus.

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 game's Pokédex, and no other data for the species appears to even currently exist in the game. While Quagsire is obtainable 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 Items

Updated Item Descriptions
Unused items without icons, which had their description updated.

These two items have no names or descriptions, so their purpose is unknown.
