Pokemon Scarlet and Violet class answers

The Paldea region is known for its prestigious school, and while you don’t have to give all the right Pokémon Scarlet and Violet class answers, it certainly benefits you to take time out from saving the world and attend a few lectures. Coming first in your exams and befriending your teachers earns you some rare rewards, including regional Pokémon and even a glimpse at Paldea's greatest treasure.

This guide explains how classes work, which answers you should pick for your midterms and finals, and what you get for all the trouble.

Pokémon Scarlet and Violet classes explained

Pokemon Scarlet and Violet exams

Once you first visit Naranja Academy – which you should do as soon as possible – you can enroll in a handful of classes, including biology, math, and history. Your teachers ask a few questions during each class and go over information that, if you’re familiar with Pokémon, you might already know, topics such as how effective certain damage types are.

Others, especially the history class, tie in a bit of Paldea’s lore and coincide with plot developments that are likely occurring in tandem with your classes, depending on how you’re progressing in the Victory Road path.

New classes unlock as you progress through the main story, so make sure to visit the academy every now and again to check. After you have three sessions in a specific class, you can visit the front desk and request to take a midterm test in that subject. Then, after three more sessions in that same subject, you can take a final exam.

As far as we can tell, the answers you give in normal lessons don’t have any effect on closeness with teachers or the rewards you can get later in the game. Midterm and finals answers do matter, however, and you can get some rare rewards if you ace the tests and befriend your professors, the director, and Nurse Miriam.

Befriending your teachers happens naturally as you attend classes, and it seems you get a boost from doing well on tests. Short story events with each teacher occasionally happen as your relationships improve. If you check the school map and see an exclamation mark by one of the locations, it means a new event is available.

Most professors have one last event after exams that you need to complete to get their final reward, except Director Clavell and Nurse Miriam. They give you their final prizes after you complete Operation Starfall and Victory Road, respectively..
