Another one of the highlight announcements during the latest Pokémon Presents broadcast was the announcement of Pokémon Scarlet & Violet DLC. The two-part series - The Teal Mask and The Indigo Disk - will begin this Fall with the first part, and the second part will follow in Winter 2023.
While we already know a bit about these DLC add-ons including some of the Pokémon in both parts, it seems The Pokémon Company has shared even more information. Apparently, there'll be "over" 230 returning Pokémon. Here's the official PR:
"In Part 1: The Teal Mask and Part 2: The Indigo Disk, you will be able to encounter over 230 familiar Pokémon that have been found living in other regions but which had not appeared in Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet."
The Pokémon officially confirmed so far include ones like Ninetales, Zebstrika and Milotic. On a related note, a dataminer has reportedly uncovered the other Pokémon that will be included, based on "deleted entries" in the Scarlet & Violet Pokedex (Version 1.2.0). A similar discovery was made during the Sword and Shield generation. You can see a list on Pastebin (note: potential spoilers). Keep in mind, this may not reflect the Pokedex in the official release.

What past generation Pokémon would you like to see make a return in Scarlet & Violet? Comment below.
Porygon-Z, yes!!! Now my ultimate team will be complete.
I just want national dex back, I would happily buy dlc for that, still, over 200 isn’t bad.
bring back paras you cowards
Everyone: Game is broken, fix it please?
Pokemon: makes DLC instead.
Why fix it when it has sold 20 million copies already? -random game freak intern quivering because he wants to keep his job
Still no scolipede. Rip my favourite bug mon
Ah this joke again.
They did the same with S&S.
All 1008 Pokémon would be nice..
I want my boy Sawk return.
@Dragonite89 ye but not in this broken setting with a cardboard world of S&V. This world looks buggy and hollow.
Dewgong is FINALLY BACK 😭😭😭😭😭❤️❤️❤️❤️
It will also come with “over 400 new glitches and bad frame rates”.
They aren't patching this are they?
I know they won't but I'd would have loved it if they pulled another back and white, as in every Pokémon in the game is new. There's only so many times you can see the same ones before they get a bit played out.
Gonna "glitch" em all Pokemon!
1010 would be cool.
Disappointed by the lack of the Ultra Beasts, Crobat, and Alakazam but I'm pretty good with the lineup otherwise. Between what's in the game already and what's in the leaked list most of my favorites are there.
Still no Spinda huh? sigh... it will remain a blank entry in HOME forever, it seems...
AFTER NEARLY AN ENTIRE DECADE, ZEBSTRIKA HAS FINALLY BEEN FREED
Like the SwSh DLC, returning mons are probably the thing I'm most excited for overall from the DLC, between the updated textures, movesets and shiny hunting potential. Haven't looked at the list myself (since I both don't want to be too spoiled and find the amount leaked to be a bit fishy) but I'm personally praying for Furfrou, Ledian and the Fossils myself!
@Snatcher You took the words right out of my mouth!
Although personally I'm looking forward to the DLC besides that, especially Part 1 since it seems to be based on the tale of Momotarō and the Setsubun festival!
Vulpix is returning according to that leak. Looks like the game will finally be made playable.
... except I don't wanna play it. (insert grumble grumble here)
I'll stick to Emerald Rogue for my Poké-fix from now on.
This DLC seems promising, unfortunately it means little when the game has so many bugs that need to be fixed.
Wow, no Gen 5 starters still? This sucks.
Literally NONE. New Pokemon is the only reason I get the next games.
Fingers crossed for some more regional forms, just like Sw/Sh's DLC regional forms! Shiftry would have been a perfect Pokemon to get a regional form with The Teal Mask, but since he's shown in the group of returning Pokemon, that seems unlikely.
Also hoping for Kingdra!! I don't want to check the pastebin list, just in case Kingdra is on there but doesn't actually make it into the DLC.
I lost count after Mewtwo.
Oh, my favorite Pokémon is here! Take those $35!
So one has to buy DLC for S&V each???
You can get Spinda in BDSP.
If you still have your 3DS and you did not delete Pokemon Transfer and Bank... you can get Spinda from X/Y or ORAS.
If you, for some reasons, own both Scarlet and Violet, then yes.
You have to buy them separately.
After all, it won't make sense for Violet to run Scarlet's DLC and vice versa.
Their uniforms, for instance, are version exclusives aside from Koraidon/Miraidon as well as each other's version exclusives before the DLCs.
Spinda from BDSP are specifically banned from entering HOME though. Something to do with how ILCA accidentally messed up the programming that controls their spot patterns.
I know I can get a Spinda into HOME if I transfer from 3DS, but that requires a subscription to the premium version of HOME that I am not willing to pay for.
Ah, I see. That is unfortunate. I will have to transfer from my 3DS then.
That said, it is only $15.99 for 1 whole year.
After that, you can terminate the premium's auto renewal.
And you have, like what, only needing to deposit just 1 Spinda (and other Pokemon if any) in Pokemon HOME to get the entry.
I know that you can spend $15.99 buying or paying something else but, again, it is 1 whole year.
But I will admit that it is not worth it since main Pokemon games don't come yearly for us to make use of Pokemon HOME.
