The Pokémon Scarlet and Violet Pokédex is larger than most games, with exactly 400 entries required to complete. But doing it is not easy. You’ll even need to trade with trainers who have a copy of the other version of the game in order to get the exclusives. However, after all the hard work, surely there must be something at the end?
Rewards for completing the Pokédex of Pokémon Scarlet and Violet
When you complete your Pokédex, you get two things: a beast ball and a shiny charm. She talks to Jacq, the biology teacher, after completing the Pokédex. The director will also come to congratulate you and give you a special certificate.
The Beast Ball has no special effects. It was used to capture Ultra Beasts in Sun Moon, but here it’s more of a trophy than anything else.
However, Shiny Charm will increase your shiny encounter rates from 1/4096 to 1/1365, making shiny Pokémon much easier to find. If you make sandwiches with Sparkling Power, the odds are even higher.

How to complete the Pokédex faster in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet
There is no real way to complete your Pokédex. However, if you can, do your best to level up and evolve Pokemon instead of searching for them in the wild. Some habitats are harder to reach, so you may want to evolve Pokémon in your party as you roam Paldea. You’ll also get a Lucky Egg before the sixth gym, which should help you level up faster.
Pokémon Scarlet & Violet is the first open world Pokémon game. Encourages coaches to search and find their “treasure”. If completing the Pokédex is one of your treasures, well done!
