Pokémon Scarlet and Violet’s Legendary Pokémon, explained

Pokémon Scarlet and Violet’s cover Legendaries are named Koraidon Miraidon, both powerful lizard-like Pokémon that you can also mount.

Here is all we have to say about Miraidon & Koraidon as it stands at the time of this writing.

Exclusive version of Koraidon or Miraidon

Koraidon, a special version for only Pokémon ScarletMiraidon, the only for Pokémon Violet. The only way you’ll be able to get both of them in one game is to trade it or to get it from future distribution events, like a code from GameStop.

Miraidon can be future-related, while Koraidon can be past-related

The names of these lizards indicate that they are associated with certain time periods. “Mirai” in Japanese literally means “future” and “korai” means “ancient.”

This lines up with what we’ve seen in trailers: Pokémon ScarletIt is more retro-oriented with Professor Sada wearing more prehistoric clothing, Pokémon Violet features Professor Turo in a Tron-like bodysuit.

Ride Miraidon and Koraidon

Based on the many trailers, it seems like these Legendary Pokémon will serve as a primary means of travel, riding atop of them across plains and through waters. The Legendary Pokémon also have formal different forms for different terrain types.

GameFreak released a statement that explains how the forms work.

Sprinting Build/Drive Mode It is possible to drive Miraidon in Sprinting Build Koraidon for the players, which makes it more easy to travel around Paldea.

Swim Build/Aquatic Mode: Players will be able to jump into rivers, lakes and vibrant oceans to approach the Pokémon that live there or cross perilous waters in a snap by riding Swimming Build Koraidon or Aquatic Mode Miraidon.

Gliding Mode / Gliding StylePlayer can hop from high cliffs, tall buildings or mountains to reach their destination.

Koraidon and Miraidon’s typing, abilities, and movesets

We don’t know! GameFreak is yet to disclose this information, no matter how absurd it may sound. Once they do, we’ll update this guide with all that good info.

There are many theories floating around about these Legendaries. Some even suggest that Cyclizar might have some connection to them.
