The Beginning of a Great Adventure - Solution Part 1 - Pokémon Scarlet and Violet

Welcome to our Pokémon Scarlet and Violet solution! It's broken down into several parts, and this is the first. If you haven't already done so, we suggest you read our preamble, but we'll remind you that this solution is written from Pokémon Scarlet. It is equally valid for Pokémon VioletThere will be just a few minor differences.

In this section we will:

  • Creating our character
  • Meet Clavel, the headmaster
  • Meet the 3 starting Pokémon

Creating the Character

You are about to begin your new Pokémon adventure! As you turn on the game for the first time, you'll be able to choose your preferred language before being prompted to create your character.

You will need to choose a name ! This will be the name that other players will see if you decide to play online or share Pokémon. So make sure you choose a good one.

When it comes to choose the physical criteria of your character, there are many options. If you're not sure what to choose, don't worry too much. You can change your face at any time with a simple press of the left directional arrow, for free. To change your hairstyle, you will have to go to a hairdresser and pay a small fee.

When you are ready, validate your character and watch the introductory video of the game.

Well at Home

You start the adventure in your room, at your desk. Stand up by moving the left stick. Note that for the beginning of the adventure, you will only be able to walk and this is quite normal. You are free to examine the various objects in your room to learn more about Paldea and the world of Pokémon.

Go down the stairs and you'll see your mum's Rongourmand heading for the kitchen. Follow him.

As you are discussing your first day of school with her, someone rings your doorbell. Go and open.

Headmaster Clavel has come in person to give you your letter of admission to Paldea Academy. You must therefore prepare to leave for a very long journey. Go back to your room and take the hat and backpack hang on your bed.

When you pick up your stuff, you will get the ABC Dresser. This book gives you lots of information and tutorials on how to play the game. Feel free to consult it from the Rare Items pocket of your Bag if you have forgotten any commands or features.

Once you have collected your belongings, return to the living room to talk to Principal Clavel. He will ask you to join him outside to introduce you to three Pokémon. Follow him.
