The main idea is to take the player through the Paldea region while experiencing a variety of adventures. This is why this mode consists of three different routes that you will all need to accomplish to be successful:

Of course, you can complete them in any order you like, as Pokémon Scarlet and Violet is an open world that allows you to go wherever you want, whenever you want.

The way of the Master

Like many Pokémon games, the Paldea region has eight arenas which you can challenge in any order you wish. Each arena is managed by a Champion who you must fight to win badges. These will allow you to access the League's final exam for become a Pokémon Master.

Before challenging the Champion of an arena, you must first take an exam. This varies from arena to arena, but is there to learn a little more about the customs and idiosyncrasies of the city, as well as the temperament of the person you are going to face next.

Colza is, as its name suggests, the Arena's Plant-type Champion, while Mashynn is an expert on Electrik-type Pokémon. Grusha, on the other hand, prefers Ice-type Pokémon. You'll need to play all three if you want to earn all the badges and become the best Trainer in the Paldea region.
