Pokemon Scarlet & Violet Players Recommend Persian for Help Completing the Pokedex


A Pokemon fan recommends using a Persian to help complete the Pokemon Scarlet & Violet Pokedex. Completing any given Pokemon game’s Pokedex is no simple matter. It takes a lot of time & effort, not to mention luck. Any advantage that makes it easier for a Pokemon trainer to capture Pokemon is welcome. When it comes to Pokemon Scarlet & Violet, Persian may just be the advantage that players are looking for.


As Pokemon fans are well aware, there’s an art to capturing Pokemon. It isn’t just a matter of having the correct Poke Ball, though that obviously helps. Having Pokemon abilities that can debilitate wild Pokemon with status effects like Sleep or Paralysis are key. Lowering a Pokemon’s HP without knocking them out is also a huge priority, made harder by leveling up Pokemon so that most of their abilities will knock out in just a single hit.

Persian is, according to Reddit user Rtrohde, the perfect Reply to all of these problems in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet. They start their post by telling players that if their goal is to complete the Pokemon Scarlet & Violet Pokedex, “Get a Persian, overlevel it, & go catch ’em all.” That’s because Persian has what Rtrohde describes as “almost” all of the ideal Pokemon moves optimal for catching & collecting Pokemon. These moves include False Swipe, Hypnosis, Thunder Wave, Taunt, & Rest.

It isn’t just an optimal selection of Pokemon abilities that make Persian a perfect choice, though. Rtrohde also mentions that Persian‘s typing, which is pure Normal, ensures his False Swipe has STAB (Same-type attack bonus) for 50% more damage. Further, using the ability Technician can grant False Swipe an additional 50% multiplier. Persian also has high Speed, which helps it apply status effects before being attacked, & Persian’s Normal typing makes it strong to everything but Fighting.

There’s quite a bit more to creating a perfect Persian for capturing Pokemon, of course. For example, Hypnosis is an egg move that can only be given to Persian through the use of picnics & the Mirror Herb. Just leveling up a Persian to be useful catching high-level Pokemon is an endeavor most may not want to invest in. But for dedicated Pokemon trainers, Persian is a great option.

For Pokemon fans hoping for a simpler solution in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet, throwing Quick Balls is fast & easy. If the Quick Ball doesn’t work, just escape from the fight & try again. And, barring that, just play normally with the Pokemon already caught. Sometimes, playing normally is the best way to have fun. Having a cute Persian certainly won’t hurt, though.

Pokemon Scarlet & Violet are available now on Nintendo Switch.
