I don't know if it's been mentioned anywhere, but has anyone confirmed whether or not wild Pokemon scale in level with you (I would assume based on badges earned)? I heard the gym leaders themselves do not, but not specifically about wild Pokemon. Basically, I want to know if I can head out of the starting town and make a beeline straight to the Pokemon I want to get, or do I have to wait until I progress far enough into the story to have a chance of capturing them without fainting.

One of the streams I watched had a level 52 wild Poke when the trainer's Pokes were only lv-30-ish.

So I'm gonna say no. There's no scaling.

So the version exclusives that are newly introduced Pokemon are literally just Ceruledge/Armarouge, the box legendaries and the Paradox Forms?
Sweet!
That settles it, I'm getting Violet.
Yep, this is it (minus Paradox Pokemon which we all know what belongs to what)

Many reviewers who played the real game cartridge on switch said there are frame-rates and lags.
I hope they will release another day one patch for this.
If you're speaking about tht preview event that happened earlier, those were specifically mentioned to be development builds. I watch someone play scarlet for about an hour at the start of the game and didn't notice any problems happening.

I'm very interested to find out if we can battle the other teachers at the school. Their designs look very cool and somehow look as if they specialise in a type.
 
I've seen some dex entries from Violet being posted and it seems like as many have speculated that the Scarlet paradoxes have entries from the dubious paranormal magazine this time around.

Great Tusk: This creature resembles a mysterious Pokémon that, according to a paranormal magazine, has lived since ancient times.
Brute Bonnet: It bears a slight resemblance to a Pokémon described in a dubious magazine as a cross between a dinosaur and a mushroom.
Sandy Shocks: It slightly resembles a Magneton that lived for 10,000 years and was featured in a paranormal magazine.
Scream Tail: It resembles a mysterious Pokémon described in a paranormal magazine as a Jigglypuff from one billion years ago.
Flutter Mane: It has similar features to a ghostly pterosaur that was covered in a paranormal magazine, but the two have little else in common.
Roaring Moon: According to an article in a dubious magazine, this Pokémon has some connection to a phenomenon that occurs in a certain region.

A Magneton living for that long sounds pretty neat even if it isn't true. Scream Tail being around a billion years ago would have been insane, at least if we follow Earth's timeline. Flutter Mane's entry is just pure nonsense.

Well, th e only downside to Violet is that Dragalge is in Scarlet, and that's an old Pokemon anyway.

So as I said; it's Violet for me.
I mean to be fair some of the versions exclusive might show up in raids like was the case in Sword&Shield, so you might be able find someone is hosting a raid for Dragapult or Dragalge and be able join it and get them that way.

Version exclusives are completely inconsequential since online trades became a thing. Sure, if you don't have NSO you won't be able to do any trading until the HOME compatibility, but if you have it then getting something through trade is maybe even easier than catching it in game.

If you have NSO and can freely trade, the only relevant factor here seems to be the box legendary. Unlike previous games, the legendary will be by your side the entire time, so picking the version with the one you prefer will make a lot of difference (in fact, I think this time it matters even more than which starter you will chose).

I'm very interested to find out if we can battle the other teachers at the school. Their designs look very cool and somehow look as if they specialise in a type.
Post-game tournament include professors. I have no idea if they can be fought before that though.
