How to Obtain All Starter Pokémon in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet

Picking a starter Pokémon can be a tough decision in any Pokémon game. In Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, the choices in the Paldea region are particularly adorable and eventually evolve into powerful battle partners. While you technically have to choose one starter from Sprigatito, Quaxly, and Fuecoco, there’s no reason why you can’t have them all. After all, isn’t that the whole point?

Finding the Starters

You won’t be able to encounter any of the starter Pokémon in the wild, but don’t worry. There is a way to get them all through trading. In this article, we’ll guide you through the easiest methods to obtain all the starters, even if you don’t have any friends who are also playing the game.

Trade with Friends

If you prefer to stick to the old-school way and only trade with people you know and trust, trading with a friend is a great option. Ask your friend to catch a Ditto in the wild and breed their starter Pokémon to create eggs for trading. Trading starters with someone you know can be a fun and wholesome experience.

Once everyone in your group has extra starters, it’s time to trade. Simply open up the in-game Main menu, go to the Poké Portal, and select Link trade. Enter a secret code and share it with your friend. Then, follow the on-screen instructions to complete the trade.

Find a Trade Partner on Discord

If you don’t have any friends playing Pokémon Scarlet and Violet or if all your friends have chosen the same starter, don’t worry. There are many players around the world who are also looking to acquire all the starter Pokémon.

Discord is a great platform to find trade partners online. Create a Discord account and join a popular Pokémon Scarlet and Violet server. Once you’re there, navigate to the trading channel in the lefthand sidebar. Explain the Pokémon you’re searching for and what you have to trade, such as version exclusives or other starters. Friendly trainers who have extra starter Pokémon from competitive breeding will often be willing to trade with you.

When you find a trade partner, the game will prompt you to review the trade before finalizing it. Take this opportunity to check the Pokémon you’re receiving to ensure you’re not being sent a disappointing Magikarp.

Use Special Link Trade Codes

Players have come up with a special link trade code system to connect those looking to trade starters and version-exclusive Pokémon. Created by YouTuber Austin John Plays, these codes allow you to specify the Pokémon you want to offer and what you expect to receive in return, all without the need for direct communication.

To use the system, you’ll need to enter each Pokémon’s Pokédex entry number to facilitate the trade. There’s a video available on YouTube explaining the system in detail. Remember to review the trade before finalizing it, as you may need to make a few attempts to find the right trading partner.

Conclusion

With these methods, you’ll be able to obtain all the starter Pokémon in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet. Whether you trade with friends, find partners on Discord, or utilize special link trade codes, you’ll have a diverse team of starters to battle with. Happy trading!
