According to the press release, only Pokémon that are available in Scarlet and Violet can be transferred to those games via Pokémon HOME, meaning it’s likely not every Pokémon from past games will be available to use in Scarlet and Violet. Because of this, an ongoing list of which Pokémon have been confirmed to make a return will be maintained so you’ll be able to know if a favorite is available. As of February 28, 2022, there are a total of 50 returning Pokémon that have been shown in videos, screenshots, and more.

New Characters in Scarlet and Violet

As with any Pokémon game, there will be numerous new characters introduced in the game. You can find a list of all confirmed important characters on the New Characters page, along with any information about them.
