Pokémon Scarlet and Violet: all Academy class midterm and finals answers

The Pokémon world is both familiar and yet quite different from our own. On one hand, the existence of all these powerful creatures has created a culture almost entirely focused on catching, training, and battling Pokémon. On the other hand, kids still need to get an education, which is where the Academy comes in. Sure, in past games, your young trainer was free to leave home and travel the world without a care in the world, but in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet,you will be a student first.

While you could completely ignore the Academy once you’ve finished the tutorial section of the game and are let loose in the open world, there are some great incentives the game doesn’t tell you about for attending classes and doing well. There are seven total courses available — biology, math, history, battle studies, language, art, and home economics — that each has a midterm and final exam to take. Some do require you to earn gym badges first, but they are all worth completing. While they shouldn’t be as hard as a real class, if you want a sneak peek at our test papers, we don’t mind you taking a glance to see all the answers in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet.

How classes work

Fidough looking confused.

To take a class in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, you will need to head back to the Academy and speak to the receptionist. You will then attend a brief class of your choice and learn some basic information depending on the course you picked. Once you’ve gone to three regular classes for any given subject, you can then take the midterm test. Once you’ve passed that, take three more classes to unlock the final exam. You will get small prizes for passing each, plus improve your relationship with that instructor as well.

For midterms, you need to get at least three answers correct to pass, while finals require at least four. Each midterm you pass will net you five EXP Candies S, while finals reward you with five EXP Candies M. Here are all the answers for each test:

Pokémon Scarlet and Violet: shiny hunting guide
Shiny Azumarill.

It's already a major task to catch all the Pokémon in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, or any of the games for that matter, but GameFreak introduced another factor completionists will need to account for starting in Generation 2 , and it affects Shiny Pokémon. These are a very rare form of Pokémon that feature alternate colors of their regular, non-shiny forms. They never have any numerical or mechanical differences from their regular versions and are only differentiated based on their color and rarity.

Shiny hunting has been around since shiny Pokémon were introduced, but the methods and odds of encountering them always change from game to game. They make a return in Scarlet and Violet, but the open-world format has made hunting them slightly different. If you want to know how to get the best odds of finding these rare Pokémon, here's everything you need to know about shiny hunting.

The Victory Path story in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet ends in the classic battle to prove you are, in fact, the best of the best. To do this, you will need to beat the infamous Elite Four, just like you have in every prior-generation game. As always, this is a continuous gauntlet of battles against arguably the toughest trainers in the entire Paldea region. If that wasn't difficult enough, there are two more fights after those against the four. You will need a top team at your side and plenty of items. These tips to become the undisputed champion in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet will also prove crucial.

Once you've collected all eight Gym Badges, reached the Pokémon League, and correctly answered all the questions in the assessment test, you can begin your path to becoming champion. Thankfully you will have the opportunity to heal and reorganize your team between battles, which will be necessary to counter some of these tough trainers.

Pokémon Scarlet and Violet Titans guide: locations, weaknesses, and more
Klawf on an orange beach.

Pokémon Scarlet and Violet haven't abandoned the classic, tried-and-true formula the series was built on. Obviously, the game is still all about catching, battling, and forming your own team of Pokémon to be the very best. However, the main story of the game isn't simply limited to the old idea of going from region to region and facing off against the eight gym leaders to eventually face off against the elite four. Yes, that is still in the game, but it's only one of the main storylines open to you.

One of the other main story paths in Scarlet and Violet is called the Path of Legends. This quest focuses on finding and defeating the intimidating Titan Pokémon with the help of another student named Arven. Each Titan is a unique version of a Pokémon hiding out in a different location that has different types and gives you a great reward. If you're struggling in any way with these massive foes, here's a full guide on all five Titan Pokémon in Scarlet and Violet.
