In all major Pokémon franchise games you can count on the help of many NPCs (non-playable characters) that can, for example, say the size of your favorite monster or the level of friendship that unites them. Pokémon Scarlet and Violet are obviously no exception to this rule and offer you six very important characters in Pale. You can identify special NPCs for your yellow dialog boxes.
- picnic strollers
- Judge IV
- NPC to change the teracrystal type
- Measuring the friendship of a Pokémon
- NPC that provides Effort Ribbon
- NPC for Hyper Training
- the other NPCs
In almost all areas you will find NPCs and its picnic tents scattered throughout the regions. Talking to them, you will get many very useful ingredients to make sandwiches, and have the possibility to take a eak and cure your Pokémon team without having to use your potions or go to the center.
This is only unlocked after completing all three scenarios in the main story and defeating Demon. If you want to do strategy, ranked battles or simply improve your Pokémon so that they defeat the chiefs of king in minutes, then you are necessarily interested in IVS-Individual Values.
This NPC evaluates a chosen Pokémon and says how good your IVs are, so you can know which attributes should improve using Bottle Caps or Hyper Training.
NPC to change the teracrystal type
By fighting the normal gym Larry, you will quickly learn about the existence of a restaurant that allows you to alter the teracrystal type of your Pokémon. This requires Tears that you can find on the ground while exploiting Paldea-specially in the zero zone-, making friends with teachers or as a reward for king. This restaurant is located in Medal. Speaking to NPC in the far left, you can select one of your Pokémon and make it change your type of teracrystal.
Measuring the friendship of a Pokémon
This is one of the main features of the franchise, as some Pokémon only evolve if their friendship with you is at most (Sylvan, for example). You can also call this happiness statistics. To find out the level of friendship of a Pokémon, you can talk to NPC and your Mar ill in Casarrafa. You will receive the Ribbon Friendship if a Pokémon is maximized in this regard.
NPC that provides Effort Ribbon
In the city of Leticia, in the southern part, you will find a lady with your Lucio who will want to see if your Pokémon is striving for you. If so, she will give you Effort Ribbon.
The efforts in question correspond to the EVS (Effort Values) of your Pokémon. You can see this value directly in Pokémon Summary by pressing X to switch the graphs.
NPC for Hyper Training
In the city of Montenegro, next to the Pokémon Center, you will find the NPC for Hyper Training. If you have level 50 or higher level Pokémon and Bottle Caps Golden or Silver may increase one of your statistics (IV): HP, Attack, Defense, Special Attack, Special Defense or Speed. Also note that in Montenegro's gym, after you defeat the leader, you can redo the challenge whenever you want.
the other NPCs
Let us also not forget to talk about the NPC that allows you to unlock the special capes to the Room Phone in Mendoza, the other that reveals the size of your Pokémon, also in Mendoza, or even those present in auctions, selling different items every day. It is also important to highlight the Pokémon League NPC, which gives you rewards every time you fight a certain number of coaches in the area. Finally, you will have to go through the Zapping NPC, which asks you to be sinister chips to provide the necessary item to evolve Char cadet.
