Two new Paradox Pokemon just made their debut in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet – Walking Wake & Iron Leaves.

Fans will recognize these Pokemon as being past or future variants of Suicune and Virizion, two popular Legendary creatures.

Walking Wake is exclusive to Pokemon Scarlet, while Iron Leaves will only appear in Pokemon Violet.

These two Pokemon will appear in 5-Star Tera Raid Battles from February 27 – March 12, 2023 in their respective games.

Only one of each Pokemon can be caught per save file during this event, but the new Pokemon will appear in future events too, allowing for multiple catches.

How to Catch Walking Wake – Suicune

To catch Walking Wake, players will need to take part in Pokemon Scarlet-exclusive Tera Raid Battles from February 27-March 12.

The powerful Pokemon will be a Water Tera-Type, so be sure to bring an Electric-Type into battle.

Trainers will want to avoid Grass-Type Pokemon however, as it seems Walking Wake has some strong Fire moves of its own.

Best Walking Wake Counter

The best Walking Wake counter is an Electric-Type Pokemon such as Bellibolt or Toxtricity.

To catch Walking Wake, players will need to take part in Pokemon Violet-exclusive Tera Raid Battles from February 27-March 12.

The Virizion Paradox Pokemon will be a Psychic Tera Type, but watch out for its powerful Grass and Bug-Type physical moves.
