Level Up to Gain BP

Scarlet Nexus - How to Level Up Fast

The only way you can gain enough BP to purchase new skills is by levelling up. BP Farming and Level Farming go hand in hand, seeing as how skills are needed to survive through many of the game's dangerous enemy encounters, and defeating them is key to earning enough EXP to earn BP.

Best Early Game Skills

Scarlet Nexus - Best Skills
Straight after completing Phase 0 of either path, it is recommended that you follow the storyline until you can finish the area of Kikuchiba. From here, you can backtrack back to the area once done, allowing you to farm enough levels and BP to unlock these best early game skills.

Yuito Skills

Scarlet Nexus - Yuito Sumeragi

Yuito at the start is a very reliable fighter. Due to his base attack speed and strength, he can easily be used to put down enemies. As such, the focus of the early game skill learning for him should be ones that increase his abilities to defeat enemies, which will make it easier in the long run to farm for more levels and BP before you decide to move along and end Phase 1 of the story.

Attack Up 2 3 Increased damage for weapon attacks by 5%.
Brain Crush Change Expand 4 Time enemies disabled due to crush gauge increased.
Concurrent SAS Activation 4 Allows up to 2 concurrent SAS activations.

Kasane Skills

Scarlet Nexus - Kasane Randall

As a fighter, Kasane is significantly slower and weaker than her counterpart. The best skills early on for her prior to finishing up with Phase 1 would be ones that increase her survivability, while gradually increasing her effectivity in combat as you level up. Doing so increases her durability with the latter Phases of the game.
