How to get version exclusives in the other game
Unlike most Pokemon games, you can actually get most of the version exclusives of the other game in your game without trading.
To do this, you’ll have to do online Tera Raids hosted by a player with the other game. You’ll be able to tell what game is hosting the raid by the fruit logo behind the Pokemon.
The only Pokemon that you must trade are the Paradox Pokemon, as these Pokemon do not appear in raids. Similarly, you’ll need to trade the box legendary Pokemon.
