Pokemon Scarlet and Violet: How to Buy and Change Clothes

Pokemon Scarlet and Violet give you plenty of options for customizing your character's look. Here's exactly how to buy and change clothes.

Pokemon Scarlet and Violet bring players yet another monster-catching adventure, this time in the lush Paldea region inspired by Spain. Ever since Pokemon X and Y, the series has put more and more emphasis on character customization, and one of those options is buying and changing clothes.

As you might expect, Scarlet and Violet continue that trend, even though clothing options feel a bit more limited than in the past few entries. If you really want to find your own style, however, you'll need to know how to find stores to purchase new threads. Here's everything you need to know about clothing in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet

How to Get Clothes

Pokemon Scarlet and Violet tell you pretty early on that you can get new clothes, but they don't exactly signpost where you need to go. Follow the tutorial until you reach the city of Mesagoza and the academy.

In the town square, you'll find the game's first clothing stores and a barbershop to change your hairstyle. If you open your map and zoom in, you can see T-shirt icons for clothing and a scissors icon for a barbershop, which is what you'll want to look for in later towns.

Here's a list of the shops that provide customization options in Mesagoza. You won't ever be able to buy new options for your shirt and pants unless Nintendo releases an update in the future. There are currently four options for "uniforms" in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet, and you'll have those unlocked from the beginning. 

  • Bagin's — Bags
  • Zapaldea Footwear — Shoes
  • Sock Quarter — Socks
  • Spec Shack — Glasses 
  • Capbourg — Hats
  • Rough and Tough — Gloves

As you progress through the game, you'll reach two other cities that have clothes shops: Cascarrafa and Levincia. These towns have the same clothing options but also add two new stores: Veracidad (Bags) and Seguro Style (Gloves), which provide even more options. 

Keep in mind that like everything else in the game, you can purchase clothes using either money or League Points. Once you've picked out your threads, you'll need to know how to put them on. 

How to Change Your Outfit

Changing your clothes is incredibly easy and can be done at any time by simply pressing left on the D-pad. This will bring up the clothing menu, where you can choose different options for every category, including uniforms, socks, shoes, gloves, backpack, hats, glasses, and phone cases. 

On this screen, you can also change the (+) button to change your look and re-edit things like eyes, facial features, and more. Make sure to save your changes when you exit the menu.
