Changing clothes in the Paldea-based Pokemon game is extremely easy. To change your clothes, uniform, or outfit, all you need to do is Press Left on the D-pad on your Switch. Doing so will open up the ‘Outfit‘ menu in the game. From here, you can then pick the uniform of your choice.

Unfortunately, as of right now, Pokemon Scarlet and Violet only have 4 uniforms that you can choose as your main outfit. There are no other clothes or outfits in the game. But we hope that the developers add a few more outfits to the game in the upcoming DLCs. Hence, for now, you can only choose the following Four uniforms/outfits, which are based on the seasons in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet.

  • Spring Uniform
  • Summer Uniform
  • Autumn Uniform
  • Winter Uniform

These are the only base of outfits you can choose from. Fortunately, Pokemon Scarlet and Violet have put a lot of emphasis on the variety of accessories in the game. Therefore, adding unique accessories to your outfit will make you stand out among your friends and other trainers in Paldea.

The Spring Uniform features the player wearing school pants with a full-sleeved buttoned-up shirt. On the other hand, your trainer will wear shorts with a half-sleeved shirt in the Summer Uniform. Autumn Uniform will make the trainer wear a full-sleeved shirt with a sleeveless sweater on top and long shorts on the bottom. Finally, the Winter Uniform consists of school pants, full sleeved-shirt topped with a sleeveless sweater, and a blazer. 

It is to be noted that you can’t change your clothes while you’re in battle, talking to an NPC, or going through a cutscene. Other than that, you can access the Customization Menu by pressing Left on the D-pad anywhere. You don’t need to be at a specific place to change your outfit in Pokemon Violet and Scarlet. 

However, the customization menu won’t be available right when you begin the game. You will first need to progress through the ‘First Day of School‘ quest in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet to unlock access to the clothes menu. Fortunately, this won’t take a lot of time. Although, at the start of the game, you won’t have a lot of accessories in your inventory. You will need to buy them as you visit different towns in the Paldea region.
