Paradox Pokémons In ‘Scarlet’
1. Great Tusk
Great Tusk, the Paradox form of Donphan, is a Pokémon exclusive to “Scarlet.” You have a 10 percent chance of spotting this Pokémon in Area Zero’s Underground biome once you have completed the main story.
2. Scream Tail
Scream Tail looks like Jigglypuff. Well, it is of the same kind. This Pokémon resembles a mysterious creature depicted in an old expedition journal. Where to find it? Well, players have a 20 percent chance of finding Scream Tail in Area Zero’s Grass and Underground biomes, provided they have completed the main story.
3. Brute Bonnet
Brute Bonnet of “Scarlet and Violet” is a new Pokémon in Generation 9. This Paradox Pokémon appears to be an ancient relative to Amoongus, but this has not yet been officially confirmed. To find it, you must complete the main story first. Then, head to Area Zero.
4. Flutter Mane
Meanwhile, Flutter Mane is a Ghost- and Fairy-type Pokémon that is relatively strong as it is only weak to Ghost and Steel-type moves. You must catch it! Find Flutter Mane in the Cave and Underground biomes where it is spawning.
5. Slither Wing
It sounds strong, it is strong. Slither Wing is dubbed one of the game’s strongest Paradox Pokémons. But it can be tricky to find it if you don’t know where to look. But don’t worry. We’re here to guide you. Find it at Area Zero’s Grass biome after completing the main story.
6. Sandy Shocks
Sandy Shocks is said to be an ancient relative of Magneton. However, it is also one of the most challenging to find in the game. Locate one in Area Zero’s Rocky biome.
7. Roaring Moon
Roaring Moon may be one of the coolest-looking Pokémons in “Scarlet,” but it is also one of the hardest to find. This Pokémon, which is the Paradox form of Salamance, is exclusive to “Pokémon Scarlet.” Furthermore, it is also exclusive to the Great Crater, so players must be in the game’s final area to catch it.
Like Scream Tail, Koraidon is also depicted in an old expedition journal but is the journal’s Winged King. It is believed that it has split the land using its bare firsts.
“Scarlet” players can catch a Koraidon near the start of the game. Plus, if they return to the place where they battled the final boss after completing the game, you can find and catch a second Koraidon by proceeding along the giant stone path.
You’ve learned about the Paradox Pokémons in “Scarlet.” Now, let’s head over to “Violet.”
Paradox Pokémons In ‘Violet’
1. Iron Treads
First on the “Violet” list is Iron Treads. It is a Ground-/Steel-type Pokémon from Generation 9. It is said that when this Pokémon curls its body and rolls to prepare for attack, it leaves a trail gouged into the ground, appearing as if it has scorched the earth. Complete the main story, and you’ll have a 10 percent chance of finding it in Area Zero’s Underground biome.
2. Iron Bundle
Another Pokémon that carries “Iron” in its name. Iron Bundle is exclusive to “Violet.” After finishing the main story, you have a 20 percent chance of spotting it in Area Zero’s Underground and Grass biomes.
3. Iron Hands
On the other hand, Iron Hands is a new Pokémon, considering that Paradox Pokémons in “Violet” are from the future. You can spot it spawning in the Grass and Underground biomes of Area Zero, provided you have completed the main story.
4. Iron Jugulis
Iron Jugulis may sound like the others, but it is unique as it is one of the most interesting Paradox Pokémons when it is in battle. Its dark-flying typing will remind you of top-tier pocket monsters like Yveltal, Galarian Moltres, and Murkrow.
Find it spawning in Area Zero’s Cave and Underground biomes.
5. Iron Moth
A Pokémon exclusive only to “Violet,” Iron Moth inhabits Area Zero’s Grass biome once the player has completed The Way Home. Being a Fire and Poison-type Pokémon, it is weak to Psychic-, Rock-, and Water-type attacks, as well as to Ground-type attacks.
6. Iron Thorns
This Pokémon, meanwhile, is a Paradox variant of Tyranitar. Also, know that Iron Thorns is exclusive to the Great Crater. So, players interested in catching it must be in the game’s final area.
7. Iron Valiant
Iron Valiant is Gallade’s Paradox form. It is exclusive to the Great Crater, just like Iron Thorns, so you must be in the final area of the game to catch it. However, note that its location is not very obvious even if you access the Great Crater. Good luck!
Finally, rounding out the 16 Paradox Pokémons in “Pokémon Scarlet and Violet” is Miraidon. Miraidon is your mount for the whole “Violet” game, but unfortunately, it is unavailable for combat.
Like Koraidon, you can find a Miraidon near the beginning of the game. But, a second Miraidon will also be available to you if you return to the area where you fought the final boss after you have completed the game.
