Pokémon Scarlet and Violet is now available for Nintendo Switch and it has garnered quite a significant number of players ever since its release. If you happen to be one of the few players who is used to throwing Poke Ball at pretty much anything, then you will find this guide useful.
Throwing Poke Balls at anything will put you in a situation where you won’t even have any left. And while it’s understandable that you are determined to complete the Paldea Dex, sometimes you need to hold off releasing those extra Pokémons. If that’s the case, can you bulk release Pokémon in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet? Let’s answer that.
Can You Bulk Release Pokémon in Pokémon Scarlet & Violet? – Answered
Currently, there’s no option or feature in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet that allows players to bulk release their captured Pokémon. So if one needs to get rid of multiple copies of a Pokémon they’ve tried to breed or have just captured hoping to get specific statuses, there’s really nothing they can do except take the time and get rid of them one after the other.
So in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet, you can manually release your Pokémon by placing them into your boxes and selecting the release option. And although the game does allow players to select several Pokémon at the same time, all they can do is move them all rather than releasing them out to the world again.
Fortunately, players may not have to spend a lot of time releasing Pokémons one by one as there is likely to be an update to address the issue soon enough. Players can also use the Pokémon HOME to manage their Pokémon boxes remotely. This feature only works on supported games and allows players to release multiple Pokémon at once.
Since this was the only way it was done in Pokémon Sword and Shield, chances are it’ll be the same for Pokémon Scarlet and Violet once it becomes available. It’s also worth noting that Generation 9 games will not have access to Pokémon HOME until an update that’s currently scheduled for 2023.
