There are quite a handful of Legendary Pokemon that you can get in Pokemon: Scarlet and Violet. Some of them are available from the beginning of Pokemon: SV but others require a bit of legwork — mainly a lot of exploration. In this Pokemon: Scarlet and Violet guide, we’ve detailed all there is to learn about getting all Legendary Pokemon.

Koraidon / Miraidon

These 2 Legendary Pokemon are available from the very beginning of Pokemon: SV — Koraidon being exclusive to Pokemon: Scarlet and Miraidon being exclusive to Pokemon: Violet. These are essentially your primary modes of traveling across Paldea in the game. You can also upgrade them to get abilities such as Surf, Glide, Climb, etc. to reach otherwise inaccessible areas.

Dark Legendary Pokemon

Aside from Koraidon / Miraidon, there are 4 Legendary Pokemon locked behind various Shrines scattered across Paldea. In order to catch these Legendary Pokemon, you need to collect 8x Colored Stakes that corresponds to each one of them.

Chi-Yu
It is a Dark/Fire-type Pokemon with the ability ‘Beads of Ruin’ that decreases the Special Defense of all nearby Pokemon. You’ll need to collect 8x Blue Stakes in order to be able to catch it.

Ting Lu
After finding 8x Green Stakes, you’ll be able to free Ting Lu. It is a Dark/Ground-type Pokemon that can get ‘Vessel of Ruin’ that decreases Special Attack stat. of all nearby Pokemon except itself.

Wo-Chien
It is a Dark/Grass-type Pokemon with the ability ‘Tablets of Ruin’ that reduces the Attack stat. of all nearby Pokemon except itself. You’ll need to have 8x Purple Stakes to get to it.

Chein-Pao
And lastly, we’ve got Chien-Pao, a Dark/Ice-type Pokemon with the ability ‘Sword of Ruin’ that reduces the Defense stat. of all nearby Pokemon. You’ll need to get all 8x Yellow Stakes to catch it.
