Does Pokemon Scarlet and Violet Have Cheats? Answered

The short answer is no, there are no cheats in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet. It’s been a long time since players could use MissingNo to exploit the game, for instance, and it looks like that trend will continue with Scarlet and Violet. Of course, that’s not going to stop players from trying to find other inventive ways to uncover an advantage.

Recently, in anticipation of the latest release, there was a “ban wave” on those using illegally modified Pokemon. This ban was applied “through Pokémon HOME and the main series games on Switch” to combat the problem. Sword and Shield even came with their very own warning while trading Pokemon. With Scarlet and Violet, these types of measures will undoubtedly continue.
