Pokemon Scarlet and Violet EXP farm locations - how to level Pokemon fast

According to those who played the game early, like LeakyJero, one of the best places to grind EXP in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet - before the Elite Four, at least - is found in the northern part of the Paldea region.

Here, with the help of a Normal Encounter Power Lv. 2 sandwich from a Picnic, you'll have no trouble running into Chansey between the levels of 46 and 60.

Any Pokemon fan will know that these caring critters award tons of experience points when they're defeated, making it really easy to level up any Pokemon that are struggling to stand up to the Elite Four or those you just need to evolve fast for their Pokedex entries.

You can even speed up the process by giving your Pokemon the Lucky Egg given to you by an Jacq as you enter your fifth or sixth gym.

The Lucky Egg has traditionally increased EXP gains of the Pokemon holding it, so it's a sure-fire way to get even more from a Pokemon that already dishes out crazy amounts of experience points - like Chansey.

To make things even easier, LeakyJero even suggests using a low-level Ghost-type Pokemon to defeat the high-level Chansey with ease. Because Chansey's Normal-type moves don't affect Ghost-type Pokemon, you can use Curse to defeat it in a few turns, letting you easily train a full squad of low-level Pokemon at breakneck speeds.

We'll no doubt find more and more ways to level up fast in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet as we go.

Another person who got the game early had moderate success beating the Pokemon outside the Psychic-type gym. You can always send your lead Pokemon out to auto-battle using R if you're busy. It'll be marginally less EXP than you'd get for a full battle, but it's a lot easier.
