It seems that the Pokemon Scarlet & Violet box legendaries could be hiding a secret motorcycle form after all.
Since the unveiling of Koraidon & Miraidon, Pokemon Scarlet & Violet’s legendary ‘mons, players have been speculating about the nature of the two beasts.
It didn’t take fans (particularly Japanese ones) long to notice that one creature represented the past, and the other the future. After all, Korai in Japanese translates to ‘ancient’ while Mirai means ‘future’.
But shortly thereafter, eagle-eyed fans began to speculate about a possible vehicle form coming to each Pokemon.
With Koraidon’s chest wheel and Miraidon’s rocket boosters, it only seemed natural that the two Pokemon would be rideable.
Now, a new piece of merchandise appears to confirm that theory. And we’re more excited than ever for Scarlet and Violet’s upcoming release date.
Pokemon Bike Forms Leak for Scarlet & Violet Legendaries
In a new leak for Scarlet & Violet merchandise, a bike form is visible for both the legendary Koraidon and Miraidon.
Using a legendary Pokemon for transportation is nothing new in the Pokemon franchise. Just look at Ash riding on Lugia in Pokemon 2000, or Brendan in the Gen 3 remakes on both Mega Latias/Latios and Rayquaza.
UPDATE: The Koraidon and Miraidon bike forms are officially confirmed, and they can fly! Players will be able to use the legendary Pokemon near the beginning of their adventure.

But this is the first time we can remember where a legendary Pokemon seems to be designed around turning into a vehicle of some sort. In what appears to be a piece of upcoming Scarlet and Violet merch, we can see new forms for our newest legendaries.
It looks as though Koraidon becomes a one-wheeled vehicle, with its rider able to hold on to its horns like handlebars.
Meanwhile, Miraidon looks far more high-tech, hovering above the ground with its jet-boosters with a rider on its back. Of course, players will only get the chance to ride one of the two beasts, depending on their game of choice.
And we even had 72 new Pokemon leak recently for Scarlet & Violet, including some regional exclusives. If you can’t wait for more information, it’s worth a peek.
Thanks to CentroPokemon on Twitter for pointing out the leak above.
It’s worth noting that this merchandise leak is yet to be officially confirmed. Until it is, take that, and this Pokemon Scarlet & Violet upcoming DLC leak, with a pinch of salt.
