What Are Pokemon Trade Codes?

Pokemon trade codes are Link Codes you can enter when starting a Link Trade in the Poke Portal. They’re useful for trainers who don’t have a friend with the opposite version of their game, allowing trade between online strangers for specific Pokemon that require trading to obtain. These Pokemon include version-exclusives, Pokemon that only evolve by trading, and all the starter Pokemon. If you’re trying to complete your Scarlet and Violet Pokedex, these codes will make things quicker and easier.

Note: The following trade codes were created and popularized by YouTuber Austin John Plays.

While the following list of trade codes places Scarlet‘s version exclusives first, you can still use the same trade code if you have and want the opposite Pokemon. If you’re using a trade code and connect with someone with the same Pokemon as you, disconnect and try again. Most people are playing Pokemon Violet, so if you’re looking for a Scarlet-exclusive Pokemon, it may take quite a few tries before connecting with the right person.
