Every answer for the Pokémon Scarlet and Violet history class exams

Learn from the past.

Pokemon Scarlet and Violet academy school building

Pokémon Scarlet and Violet constantly remind you that your character is a student in school, even if so much of the game takes place during an off-campus research project. The permanent uniform, random encounters with your teachers, and other pieces of the story serve to remind you that perhaps you should be in class. Persona 5 Royal isn’t the only game trying to school its players.

Players can sign up for classes at their own leisure, but they aren’t a requirement by any means. They do come with more rewards than you might realize upfront. One of the most valuable classes, the History Class, even reveals information about the whereabouts of the four legendary shrines.

Here are the answers to the History Class, Midterm, and Final Exam questions in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet.
