PC gamers are used to having many mods for their favorite games, but those who prefer Nintendo Switch for their gaming needs are no foreigners to this concept either.
Some of the most popular Nintendo Switch titles are the latest additions to the Pokémon universe, Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, and gamers who are not satisfied with what the official games bring can already find a bunch of interesting mods to enhance their experience.
In this article, we bring you our selection of the 5 best mods for Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, so you can have even more fun while trying to catch ’em all.
One of the first mods to appear for this double pack may be somewhat divisive, but it is hilarious at the same time. While Ed Sheeran fans are delighted that the singer is responsible for “Celestial,” which serves as the main theme for Scarlet and Violet, it appears that others were not so thrilled.
This mod promises to replace Sheeran’s tune with Kōji Wada’s song “Butter-fly,” which was the theme song for the popular 1999 anime show Digimon Adventure, and you can download it here.
This mod created by the GameBanana user noxthebox gives you the chance to play around with your Pokémon’s base stats, abilities, held items, learnsets, evolutions, and so much more. You can think of it as a tool that can give you the Game+ experience once you complete the main story with the original settings. The creator promises to add a randomizer and a trainer editor in the future.
Better Run Speed & Slope Tolerance
Tired of slipping in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet? With this mod, that can be a thing of the past. Created by Inidar on GameBanana, this mod will double your running speed and increase slope tolerance, so that you can avoid those annoying slips.
Picnics are a welcome new feature in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, but this mod makes them even better. For example, when you install it, it can make the buff used to find Shinies even stronger or make it easier for you to find eggs. Picnic+ also expands your egg basket to fit 50 eggs instead of only 10. Still, be careful about going online if using this mod.
This mod, also created by Inidar, does what its name says—makes battles faster by removing action delays and pauses. We found it particularly useful, as Scarlet and Violet don’t give players the option to skip battle cutscenes, unlike some previous games in the Pokémon series. You can choose between 6 different versions of this mod, depending on how impatient you are.
