Pokémon Scarlet and Violet Obedience level guide

Everything about Gym Badges and Obedience levels!

During the battle in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, if your Pokémon does not follow your command, you will surely be in a disadvantaged state against your opponent. This happens with only high-level Pokémon. Fortunately, you can solve this issue with Gym Badges. In this article, we will inform you how the obedience level plays a vital role to make your high-level Pokémon follow your command in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet.

The reason behind disobedience in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet

Pokémon will disobey your commands, and ignore you sometimes. And on top of that, sometimes, not only will they not do what you asked them to do, and they will do something completely different instead.

This occurred because of levelling up your Pokémon too high, or because you received the Pokémon in a trade. Also, if they get too strong too fast, your inexperience in handling a high-level Pokémon will backfire on you badly.

Pokémon Scarlet and Violet: Obedience level and required badges

Your catches and control over high-level Pokémon depend on how many Gym Badges you have. Different level of Pokémon requires a specific amount of Gym Badges. Like, a 25-level Pokémon only needs one Gym Badge to obey all your commands.

On the other hand, if you catch a Pokémon at a low level of 25, it will always listen to you despite its later level-ups. So, here is a list of high-level Pokémon and the required numbers of Gym Badges.

Number of Gym BadgesMaximum Level
1 Gym BadgeLv. 25
2 Gym BadgesLv. 30
3 Gym BadgesLv. 35
4 Gym BadgesLv. 40
5 Gym BadgesLv. 45
6 Gym BadgesLv. 50
7 Gym BadgesLv. 55
8 Gym BadgesPokémon of All Levels

A gentle reminder, do not let your Pokémon exceed the maximum level while holding your current number of badges. If you really want to catch them, then you will have to earn more badges before try commanding them.

How to acquire badges in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet

Acquiring Gym badges is actually a very straightforward task. From the map, you will be able to locate Gym leaders. You can get these by defeating Gym Leaders in a Pokémon battle. Some of the Gym Leaders are Alfornada Gym, Cascarrafa Gym, and Montenevera Gym.
