Pokemon Scarlet and Violet aren’t overflowing with Legendary Pokemon from earlier games, in contrast to Pokemon Legends: Arceus. It is logical that this marks the beginning of the ninth generation. The first two Legendary Pokemon to find, Koraidon and Miraidon, are still out there.
While Miraidon is only available in Violet, Koraidon is only available in Scarlet. Both appear early on in their individual games and serve as your mount as you explore Palden.
What role do they play in your team? You must first complete the quest “The Way Home – Zero Gate.” After that, Koraidon/Miraidon will transform and become combat-usable. You can find another of either Pokemon there if you go back to the crater’s lab. Catch this and trade it to someone else to finish your Pokedex and get the opposite Legendary.
Both fall in the category of Paradox Pokemon but are different types. Koraidon is a Fighting/Dragon Type that uses Orichalcum Pulse. It makes the sunlight harsh when it enters combat, raising its Attack stat in the process.
Myrmidon is an Electric/Dragon Type with the move Hadron Engine. It converts terrain into Electric Terrain when it enters battle, boosting its Special Attack.
Four more Legendaries – The Ruinous Pokemon – are also present in the world but require removing stakes to access a shrine in each Province. Each Ruinous Pokemon has eight stakes of a specific color – purple, yellow, green, and blue – which must be removed. Once that’s done, you can access their shrine to capture them. All of the movement abilities for Koraidon and Miraidon are needed, but we’ll cover those in greater detail below.
First up is Ting-Lu, a Dark/Ground Type. Upon removing all the green stakes, you unlock the Groundblight Shrine in North Province. Ting-Lu’s signature move is Vessel of Ruin, which lowers the Special Attack stats for all Pokemon (except for itself).
Next is Wo-Chien, a Dark/Grass Type. Removing all purple stakes grants access to the Grasswither Shrine in South Province, where it’s trapped. Its signature move is Tablets of Ruin, which lowers the Attack stats of all Pokemon except for itself. You’re probably noticing a pattern by now.
The third is Chien-Pao, a Dark/Ice Type residing in Iceland Shrine in West Province. It’s accessible upon removing all yellow stakes and possesses Sword of Ruin as its signature move, which lowers the Defense stats of all Pokemon besides itself.
Finally, Chi-Yu, the Dark/Fire Type trapped in Firescourge Shrine in North Province. Removing all the blue stakes allows access to the shrine. Its signature move is Beads of Ruin, which lowers the Special Defense of all Pokemon except for itself.
How to Unlock Travel Abilities for Koraidon and Myrmidon
As you explore the world with Koraidon and Miraidon, you’ll notice certain areas are inaccessible. Specific abilities are required to progress forward, but if you want every single Pokemon (including the Ruinous Pokemon), it’s good to prioritize getting all of them as soon as your Pokemon are strong enough.
To do so, you must fight Titan Pokemon in the Path of Legends questline. Here are all of the abilities, which Titan grants them, and the recommended level you should be when fighting them:
- Dash – Obtained by defeating the Stony Cliff Titan. Level 15 Pokemon are recommended.
- Swim – Obtained by defeating the Open Sky Titan. Level 19 Pokemon are recommended.
- High Jump – Obtained by defeating the Lurking Steel Titan. Level 28 Pokemon are recommended.
- Gliding – Obtained by defeating the Quaking Earth Titan. Level 44 Pokemon are recommended.
- Climbing – Obtained by defeating the False Dragon Titan. Level 55 Pokemon are recommended.
