Pokemon Scarlet and Violet features different Pokemon that are exclusive to each version. To get all the Pokemon, you need to trade with someone who has the other version. Here’s a list of Pokemon Scarlet and Violet trade codes, including those added with The Teal Mask DLC.

The Pokedex for Game Freak’s Pokemon Scarlet and Violet continues to expand following the arrival of The Teal Mask DLC.

As usual, there are differences between Scarlet and Violet, and one of them is the version-exclusive Pokemon you can catch. In years gone by, players were encouraged to locally trade with players who owned the other version of the game to help fill out their Pokedex.

With the latest generations, Nintendo and Game Freak have made it easier for players to complete their Pokedex. So, let’s run through Pokemon Scarlet and Violet’s trade codes, including those for new exclusive Pokemon added with The Teal Mask.

Pokemon Scarlet & Violet The Teal Mask version exclusive trade codes

Depending on which version you buy, your copy of Pokemon Scarlet or Pokemon Violet The Teal Mask will contain version-exclusive Pokemon that simply won’t appear in the other title.

Meaning that if you want to catch every Pokemon and have a completed Pokedex to show for your efforts, you’ll need to trade with a user who has the alternative game. If you have Pokemon Scarlet, then you’ll have to trade with someone who has Pokemon Violet, and vice versa.

So Game Freak forces you to choose between a Fire-type, a Water-type, and a Grass-type, in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet’s case: Fuecoco, Quaxly, or Sprigatito.

So, if you’ve picked one and want the other two added to your party, or need them to complete your Pokedex, here are the common trade codes to use:
