It’s time for a brand-new Pokemon adventure, with Pokemon Scarlet & Violet – check out the box art and new Legendary Pokemon coming to the game.

If you’re a Pokemon fan, you won’t want to miss out on the upcoming Gen 9 of the mainline series. Like the critically-acclaimed Legends: Arceus, Scarlet & Violet is taking the traditional Pokemon experience and adding open-world elements.

This time around, your open-world adventure will feature a lot more Pokemon battling, but you still gotta catch ’em all!

Towns will blend seamlessly into the wilderness, and there are countless Pokemon to be found in the skies, streets, seas, and forests. However, there are also a couple of new Legendary Pokemon you’ll want to catch too!

Don’t miss out on everything we know about Scarlet & Violet’s open world and its region here!

New Legendary Pokemon in Scarlet & Violet – Koraidon & Miraidon

The most exciting part of the trailer was the reveal of two new legendary Pokemon. Both of these new Legendaries were shown to be standing on a cliff and appear to be dragons.

Koraidon is the red Legendary Pokemon that appeared on the left of the trailer and will be exclusive to Pokemon Scarlet.

Meanwhile, Pokemon Violet’s Legendary will be Miraidon, which was on the right side of the screen. Judging by its appearance, it could be an Electric/Dragon type.

It’s also worth noting that the names of the Pokemon hint at what they represent. ‘Korai’ means old or ancient in Japanese while ‘mirai’ means future. But will you be going for the tradition of Koraidon or the high-tech, mechanical-looking Miraidon?

Of course, these new Legendary Pokemon are the cover stars for the new games too!
