15 More Things You Might Have Missed In Pokémon Scarlet & Violet

16. Leeloo Dallas Multi-Select

You can select multiple Pokémon in a box, for easy movement — just press the minus button and you'll get a big box that you can draw around the Pokémon you want to grab.

You do have to have all your Pokémon next to each other for this to work, but bear the multi-select feature in mind when tidying up your boxes!

17. Trading Tongues

Trading for a Pokémon from someone whose game is in a different language will give you access to that Pokédex entry in both your language and theirs — including measurements, which will change to displaying their height in metres and their weight in kg.

Unfortunately, this only works for Japanese-language trades, as far as we can tell. Pokémon will say if they came from different regions still, like Italy, Spain, France, and so on, but you won't see their Pokédex entries.

18. Shiny Trophies

You can display shiny versions of Pokémon in the Pokédex, as long as you've seen them in their shiny form. This will replace their model with the shiny version until you decide to change it.

19. Help out your teachers

Make sure to check in with Prof Jacq from time to time — he'll give you rewards for doing his job for him filling out your Pokédex. This is on top of the rewards you get from the Pokédex itself!

20. Keep your Pokémon dry

You've probably tried sending out your Pokémon to auto-battle in the water, and you probably quickly discovered that this drowns the Pokémon, you monster. Of course, they're fine, they just can't swim, and they'll refuse to fight in the water.

However, you can throw balls at Water Pokémon to engage them in battle instead — just target them with ZL and press ZR to throw a Poké Ball. Your own Pokémon will then magically figure out how to fight on water. Why couldn't they do it before?

21. Climb every tower

Towers & Pokémon Centers serve as fast travel points, so you'll want to ensure that you've activated them all by using the Pokémon Center and climbing to the very tippy-top of each tower. You should climb towers anyway — they have TMs and Gimmighouls in them!

22. Your Pokémon have opinions now

You can now ask advice from your Pokémon when learning moves, and they'll tell you what they think you should get rid of to make room for the new move. This raises questions, obviously — can they talk? Do they understand battle strategy? — but try not to think too hard about it.

Also, treat it as a second opinion, because, erm, Pokémon can be a bit stupid. Our Flying-type Tera Pikachu thinks it should get rid of Fly, despite that being its whole deal. Shut up, Pikachu.

23. Get into Rotometry

Talk to the lady at the bottom of the Mesagoza steps, and she'll tell you she can read your past with "Rotometry". If you agree to this, you can get Rotom phone cases based on your Switch save data. The more Pokémon games you've played on Switch, the more phone cases you can get — and each one is themed around the specific Pokémon games you've played!

24. Backstabbing

Hit wild Pokémon in the back while sneaking, and you'll get a free attack. Is it honourable? No. Does it make it easier to beat them and/or catch them? Uh, yes.

25. Respawn, reuse, recycle

TMs and Gimmighouls respawn. This is a lifesaver if you're trying to grind for TMs, money, or those stuuuupid Gimmighoul coins. We have guides for that too, by the way:

26. The Pokédex has secrets

The Pokédex is even more useful than normal — this time it can actually help you find the Pokémon you're missing.

The Pokédex will show you the location and silhouette of Pokémon you haven't caught yet, as long as they're next to a Pokémon you already have in your Pokédex. Note that evolutions with no wild location won't have one, of course.

27. Buy balls in bulk

This isn't a new feature, but if you buy 10 Poké Balls of any type in one go, you'll get a Premier Ball as a reward. This scales up, too — buy 50 Poké Balls and you'll get 5 free Premier Balls.

Unfortunately, they don't have any special effect — they work exactly like Poké Balls, with a 1x catch rate. They do look cool, though. And they're free!

28. Sell stuff in bulk

When selling at a Poké Mart, just press X to open up the bulk selling menu. Select the things you want to sell, select how many you want to sell, and then you'll add it to a shopping list — once you're done, press the + button to sell it all at once!

29. Ladder sprinting

Hold down the B button while on a ladder to climb or descend faster. We don't have all day!

30. Flying is just falling in style

There is no fall damage in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet. You probably already know this one if you like to fling yourself off things, but your Rotom Phone will actually save you before hitting the ground. You can then press Y if the fall was accidental and you'd like to go back up to where you previously were, but there's a time limit, so make sure to press Y quickly!
