Until recently, I struggled to believe there is limited clothing customization in Pokémon Violet compared to a few mainline games. In the past, I just spent my time running around the world to find some girly outfits because I didn’t like the uniforms.
I wanted to play as a girl and wear a cute outfit and change them whenever I wanted. But since I became a Pokémon enthusiast, I will help you understand why this is impossible, how to change clothes in Pokémon Violet, and more.
How to change your clothes in Pokémon Violet
Trainers can customize their clothes in Pokémon Violet by entering a clothing store. However, players are a bit restricted in terms of outfit options as compared to Pokémon Sword and Shield and Legends which have a full display of options.
Nevertheless, a variety of outfits and accessories are sold in several stores around Paldea.
😁Unfortunately, trainers can only change their clothes in Pokémon Violet when the story has progressed until they receive their starter Pokémon and battling Nemona.
Afterward, they can change their clothes by pressing left on the D-pad anytime. A clothes menu will appear from which to choose your outfit.
In addition, trainers can only change their uniforms between Summer, Winter, Autumn, and Spring uniform styles in the base game.
Each style is specific to standard uniform and customization is limited.

Do you get more uniforms in Pokémon Violet?
👊Players get uniforms depending on the game version they are playing. Scarlet and Violet players each get one set. You can get a bonus DLC uniform by pressing the X button to open the menu.
A yellow downloadable content box will appear at the bottom right-hand corner of the screen. Click the A button while on it. Press the A button a few more times to load the item details.
Then, highlight the New Uniform Set and press A two times to claim it.
Players who buy The Hidden Treasure of Area Zero expansion get additional outfits such as Academic uniforms.
Can you cross-dress in Pokémon Violet?
🙂 As mentioned earlier you can change between Summer, Winter, Autumn, and Spring outfits. The uniform stays on the entire time and their colors match the game.
For Pokémon Scarlet, it is orange red and for Pokémon Violet, it is blueish purple. Spring outfits include an off-white long-sleeved shirt with colored cuffs, long, skinny trousers, suspenders, and a tie.
Summer outfits include shorts, a short-sleeved off-white shirt, and a tie. Autumn outfits include an off-white long-sleeved shirt with colored cuffs and a tie, knee-length shorts, and a puffy vest.
Winter outfits include a grey long-sleeved zip-up blazer, long, skinny trousers, an off-white shirt with a tie, and a blue jumper.
Can you buy a skirt in Pokémon Violet?
Unfortunately, you cannot buy a skirt in Pokémon Violet because Nintendo doesn’t have clothes that are gender specific. The clothes are unisex and more accessible.
Skirts are also not advisable for a Pokémon riding a motorcycle. Another possible reason for no skirts in Pokémon Violet is that some streamers of BDSP discovered that any character with a skirt on above a reflective floor caused a blur effect from the floor that removed its reflectiveness.
Since Raid dens will be crystallized, Game Freak does not want to remove the crystal effect.
Since I started playing Pokemon at a tender age, my love for the game kept growing. My passion is what inspired me to pursue video game journalism. This helped me gain immersive experience of 5 years. I have a lot of expertise in the gaming industry since I have been editing game-related content for a long time. Since I have also been studying this game in-depth for years, I am now a professional player. My desire is to share everything I know about Pokemon to help you broaden your knowledge on the game.
