Getting all the version exclusives from Pokemon Scarlet and Violet’s Indigo Disk DLC requires trading or owning both titles.

The easiest method to trade and look exactly for the mon’ you are missing for your Pokedex is via trading codes. As well, codes can help with those Pokemon who only evolve via trading.

These codes are made by the community and serve as a great way to save time while trading. Here, we will list the codes for all the version exclusives and trade evolutions in the Indigo Disk DLC!

We have also updated The Teal Mask version exclusives, trade evolutions, and base game trade codes with the new National Dex nomenclature.

All Indigo Disk Version Exclusives & Evolution Trade Codes

There are a total of eight version-exclusive Pokemon and six evolution trades in Scarlet and Violet’s Indigo Disk DLC, and these are the individual trade codes for each.

Thanks so much to Austin John Plays for creating and sharing these codes with the community!

*Note: All Pokemon marked with an asterisk are unique static encounters, so people will be less inclined to trade them. The best way to trade them for Pokedex registration is with friends instead of using codes. Also, it is good practice to immediately trade these Pokemon back, but be prepared in case someone doesn’t do this.

How to Use Trade Codes

  1. Identify the trade code you want to use from the table in the section above.
  2. Once you have determined the correct Indigo Disk, Teal Mask, or base game trade code, press X to open the menu.
  3. Select Poke Portal.
    • Keep in mind that this operation requires an internet connection. You can see at the bottom of the screen if you are connected or not. If you aren’t pressing the “L” button will solve this.
    • Additionally, you will need an active Nintendo Online membership to trade Pokemon in Scarlet and Violet.
Poke Portal Link Trade Pokemon Scarlet and Violet
  1. In the Poke Portal menu, select Link Trade.
  2. Select Set Link Code and enter the 8-digit trade code you have prepared.
  3. Finally, select Begin Searching and wait until the system pairs you with another trainer looking for that same trade.
  4. As soon as trading begins, make sure you offer the right Pokemon according to your selected trade code.
    • For example, as shown in the image below, if you entered 0027-0037 as your code, you should offer either Alolan Vulpix or Alolan Sandshrew.
  5. Before accepting the trade, double-check that you are getting the correct Pokemon. Also, if this is an evolution trade, make sure the Pokemon you are about to receive holds the right item for it to evolve.
