You don't have to be concerned about losing your progress if Pokemon SV crashes on your Nintendo Switch unluckily or if you forget to save the game. By simultaneously pressing X, B, and Up on the game's title screen, you can access a hidden save backup.
You will then be taken to a new screen where you can choose whether or not to begin with your backup data. It's very close to where you left off when you last played it, so you can pick up almost exactly where you left off. Additionally, even if you have the autosave turned off, this still functions.
Do you want to play Pokemon SV faster? You can accomplish this by attaching a second controller and angling the left joysticks on both of them. Even though it isn't perfect, you can still use it if you want to travel quickly.
This exploit can help you earn a lot of money quickly, as Kibbles explains in his video (which is linked below). You'll need both male and female Pokemon for this because you'll need to breed them.
Since it has been a recurring theme in the series, having a Nintendo console in the main character's room is no longer able to be categorized as an Easter egg on its own. The example in Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet is distinct because the Joy-Cons on the main character's Nintendo Switch change colour to match yours when they are playing handheld or with detached Joy-Cons.
The "Diamond Dust" Easter egg, which causes the snow to appear to sparkle in waves and only appears in specific locations and at specific times, such as in Snowpoint City on Junichi Masuda's birthday in Pokémon Diamond and Pokémon Pearl, is a rare Easter egg that has appeared in several Pokémon games since Generation IV.
Dark-Anmut believes they saw its return in Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet while they were "just literally chilling in the pause menu when this Easter Egg happened," even though it wasn't present in Sword and Shield. The cause of the effect is still unknown, and players will have to look into it while exploring Glaseado Mountain because it seemed to come out of nowhere for them.
Players may argue over which of the new Generation IX Pokémon has the best design, but fewer of them discuss how the Paldea region's characters already stand out thanks to their distinctive designs. Gabe2200, a Redditor, did notice one character design that contained a secret detail for keen Pokémon fans.
They observe, "The Pokéstar Studios logo is on the shirt of the Pokefan trainer class." Pokéstar Studios is the location in southwest Unova where you can make movies, as may be remembered by those who played during Generation V. The studio and the logo both make references to actual movie studios, adding another layer to the Easter egg.
This intriguing Easter egg is one that players who are very invested in the game should keep an eye out for. One of the rarest Pokémon in the game can be found in a hidden cave in Area Zero of the Great Crator, which can be reached after finishing all of the game's campaigns.
The "strange signs" found inside the cave, according to Redditor chilosss, may hold the key to yet another mystery, even though they are unsure of "what they could mean." Although some have suggested that it might be connected to the Ruinous Quartet, a definitive solution has not yet been discovered.
Legendary Pokémon can be disappointing, but the Ruinous Pokémon in Paldea have made a great addition to the lineup thanks to their unique designs and intriguing origins. According to Redditor crimsonindo, their designs also contain "secret symbolism."
The seals of "the Ruinious four in Scarlet and Violet closely match the colors of nature's forces," according to their explanation. The Forces of Nature are still very much in play with the introduction of Enamorus in Pokémon Legends: Arceus, so it wouldn't be shocking if they decided to make a reference to them. The colors aren't exactly the same, but they're close enough that it might be much more than a coincidence. Wo-Chien's seal is purple instead of Enamorus's pink, and Chien-Pao's seal is yellow instead of orange.
Larry is special in that he has two distinct specializations that he employs in the two different battles you have with him because he is both a gym leader and one of the Elite Four. He uses Normal-type Pokémon in his first battle as the Medali Gym Leader, but Flying-type Pokémon in the Elite Four battle.
This is "likely a reference to how the Normal/Flying type combination is the most prevalent type combination for the Normal type," says Redditor DrWarioMiracleCure. It makes sense that his character is built around this recurring theme in the games since his emblematic Pokémon is also a Dual Type with this precise combination.
Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet contain some allusions to this year's spinoff game, just like Arceus, another game full of intriguing Easter eggs and hidden details. In the history class, "you can see on the board there are images of the professor from Arceus as well as the early pokeballs," remarked Redditor Jeremithiandiah.
It makes sense that Laventon would be mentioned in Ms. Raifort's history class because of his contributions to the invention of Poké Balls, which Arceus used to make Laventon a significant figure in the history of Pokémon. It's a minor adjustment that improves the series' overall sense of coherence.
The Pokémon pixel art portraits that can be found on the walls of the Alfornada Gym are a great Easter egg as a subtle nod to the early games that will satisfy old-school Pokémon players, despite not being as cryptic as the truly hidden details in Scarlet and Violet.
As a player, according to Redditor Altair1208, they "got hit by nostalgia" as soon as they saw the portraits, which feature mosaic-styled sprites of vintage Pokémon from Generation I. It's appropriate that the game honors the games and Pokémon that started it all, given that the 25th anniversary of Pokémon is still relatively recent.
The Pokémon's ability to transform into its fearless Hero form makes it one of the best in Generation IX, despite the fact that no one would assume Palafin was inspired by Superman based solely on its Zero form. However, more than just its muscular build, color scheme, and chest logo serve to draw comparisons to the Man of Steel.
It "evolves at lvl 38," according to Redditor Gabe2200, and "the first issue of the original Superman comic was published in 1993." The reference seems obvious, and it's one of the coolest Easter eggs in the game. In any other Pokémon, this would be written off as a coincidence, but since it's already obvious that superheroes were on the designers' minds when creating Palafin, the reference seems clear.
In single-player mode, players of Pokemon Scarlet and Violet can use this dupe exploit.
Making Sandwiches will Give You Eggs.
On a picnic, occasionally, you won't get a single egg. Sandwiches, however, can improve your chances of getting eggs. A meal power called "Egg Power" can be found in the recipes. The ingredients for these recipes are available at the food stores in Mesagoza. In Pokemon Scarlet and Violet, your ability to hatch eggs quickly depends on your Egg Power level. Sandwiches with egg power include the Great Peanut Butter Sandwich and the Dessert Sandwich.
The method of hatching eggs is the same as in earlier episodes. The eggs must be carried a specific distance before they hatch. If you want the egg to hatch more quickly, you can also include a Flame-type Pokemon in your party.
In this game, you can speak with the chef at the sushi bar in the Treasure Eatery to modify your Tera Type. just that simple. However, you must first defeat gym leader Larry at the Medali Gym. He uses level 35 Pokemon of the Normal type. Therefore, before taking on this gym, make sure your Pokemon are at or near this level. When you've defeated Larry, go to the sushi counter at the Treasure Eatery. The chef there will inquire as to whether you want to modify the Tera type of your Pokemon. 50 Tera Shards of a specific kind of shard are required. However, the first time you go, the chef will give you normal tera shards as a lesson. Later, by participating in Tera Raid events, you can obtain Tera Shards.
Change the Tera type as follows:
Why modify the Tera type?
You had to be careful when selecting your Pokemon in classic Pokemon battles. For instance, you would definitely lose if you faced off against a Fire-type Pokemon with a Grass-type. To counter fire-type Pokemon, you can switch your grass-type to a water-type using this new mechanic. This mechanic's introduction completely alters how you approach battle. So changing your Tera type can help you win a losing battle.
