Pokémon Scarlet and Violet brings a new feature for the franchise for its setting of an Academy, one that your very own player character gets enrolled into. It adds a unique gameplay aspect to Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, exclusive to it in fact. Completing classes is encouraged due to the benefits it provides to players. For example, each Exam cleared rewards Exp. Candies and bonding with every teacher will grant you their own exclusive rewards for completing all their classes and seeing every interaction with them.

It’s pretty important to not bunk off for all the kinds of rewards the Academy life will grant you in the game, so here is how you can make the very best of progress in unlocking the features of it.

How to unlock more classes in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet

Within the central city of Mesagoza, the Academy has its doors always open to you. No matter your progression in the game, always touch base here to reap the benefits of being a hardworking student! To do this you may want to prepare yourself in advance, so here are our suggestions to make the progression of unlocking everything possible within it smooth sailing.

Firstly, it is a fact that starting up Pokémon Scarlet and Violet will only make available a couple of classes to complete initially within the walls of the Academy. These can and do expand as you progress through the main story. The specific requirement is by defeating each and every Gym and its leader.

Since the game allows free-roam to the point where you can challenge the Gym Leaders in any order, power imbalance can and is always a possible issue you can experience for yourself. That is unless you have a game plan in mind. With 8 Gyms available in the game, here is our recommended order in which to tackle first and naturally open up the rest of the classes at the Academy.

  1. Cortondo Gym
  2. Artazon Gym
  3. Levincia Gym
  4. Cascarrafa Gym
  5. Medali Gym
  6. Montenevera Gym
  7. Alfornada Gym
  8. Glaseado Gym

Now we throw it over to you to tackle them head-on and experience everything you can within the Academy!
