How to To Get and Unlock Miraidon in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet

To unlock and obtain Miraidon in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet, players need to complete the final mission called “The Way Home” in the game (Pokemon Violet).

After finishing this mission, players can activate their rideable Miraidon by accessing the main menu, selecting the party Pokemon option, and choosing Miraidon. By putting Miraidon into its battle form, it can be added to the party and used in battles.

However, it’s important to note that Miraidon will be removed from the party and revert back to its non-battle form when used for transportation. This Miraidon cannot be traded or added to battle teams.

The good news is that players can catch another Miraidon. After completing “The Way Home,” players can return to the bottom of the Great Crater of Paldea, where they can find a wild Miraidon to capture. This Miraidon functions like any other Pokemon and can be traded, boxed, and captured normally.

In Pokemon Scarlet, players can only obtain Miraidon by trading with a Pokemon Violet player, as Koraidon is exclusive to Pokemon Scarlet. It’s worth mentioning that the legendaries, including Miraidon, have not been made available in raids. Therefore, trading is the only option for Pokemon Scarlet players to obtain the electric-dragon Pokemon.

While it’s possible that the two may be available in future events, similar to the distribution event for shiny Zacian and Zamazenta in Pokemon Sword & Shield, there is no information on when such an event might occur for Pokemon Scarlet & Violet.

Can you catch another Miraidon in Pokemon Violet?

Yes, in Pokémon Violet, it is possible to catch another Miraidon. After completing the game, players can venture to The Great Crater of Paldea (Area Zero) and make their way to the bottommost part. From there, they need to follow the road that leads to a ledge where they can encounter and capture Wild Miraidon.
