Paradox Pokémon explained: All Paradox Pokémon in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet listed

Paradox Pokémon are a new type of Pokémon category introduced in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet. These Pokémon can be divided into two extra categories: Pokémon from the future in Violet and Pokémon from the past in Scarlet, which have far better names and designs. (Just sayin.)

There are 16 Paradox Pokémon in total, including Koraidon and Miraidon, spread across both games’. This means, if you want to complete your Paradox Pokémon collection, you’ll need to do some trading with a player who has the opposite version to you.

Below you’ll find all of the Paradox Pokémon in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet listed, while, in the sections below, we take a look at their locations and weaknesses:

Great Tusk location and weaknesses

Great Tusk is exclusive to Pokémon Scarlet and can be found in the Underground Biome. You will also fight the Great Tusk, The Quaking Earth Titan in Pokémon Scarlet.

Since it’s a Ground and Fighting-type Pokémon, Great Tusk is weak to Fairy, Flying, Grass, Ice, Psychic and Water-type attacks. You’ll quickly discover, however, that attempting to use Electric-type attacks against Great Tusk is pointless, because they won’t cause any damage.

To obtain Great Tusk in Pokémon Violet, you’ll need to trade with a trainer playing Scarlet to add it to your Pokédex. We recommend trying the trade codes 0376 or 0382 and offering an Iron Treads in exchange for a Great Tusk.

Scream Tail location and weaknesses

Scream Tail is exclusive to Pokémon Scarlet and can be found in both the Grass and Underground Biomes of Area Zero.

This prehistoric Jigglypuff is a Fairy and Psychic-type Pokémon, so it’s weak to Ghost, Poison and Steel-type attacks. Avoid Dragon-type attacks, however, as they’ll cause absolutely no damage to Scream Tail!

If you’re playing Pokémon Violet, then you’ll need to trade with a Scarlet player to catch Scream Tail. You can try using the trade codes 0377 or 0383 to trade an Iron Bundle for a Scream Tail.

Brute Bonnet location and weaknesses

Brute Bonnet is a Paradox Pokémon exclusive to Pokémon Scarlet and can be found in the Grass and Underground Biomes of Area Zero.

It’s a Grass and Dark-type Pokémon, which means Brute Bonnet is weak to Fairy, Fighting, Fire, Flying, Poison and Ice-type attacks. Brute Bonnet is, however, especially weak to Bug-type attacks! Yet, it’s immune to Psychic-type attacks.

If you’re playing Pokémon Violet, then you’ll have to receive Brute Bonnet via a trade to add it to your Pokédex. Try using the trade codes 0378 or 0384 to trade an Iron Hands for a Brute Bonnet.

Flutter Mane location and weaknesses

Flutter Mane is exclusive to Pokémon Scarlet and can appear in the Cave and Underground Biomes of Area Zero.

An ancient form of Misdreavus, Flutter Mane is a Ghost and Fairy-type Pokémon, which makes it weak to Ghost and Steel-type attacks. Flutter Mane can’t, however, be damaged by Dragon, Fighting or Normal attacks.

If you’re playing Pokémon Violet, you’ll have to trade with a Scarlet player to add Flutter Mane to your collection. We recommend trying the trade codes 0379 or 0385 to trade an Iron Jugulis for it.

Slither Wing location and weaknesses

Slither Wing is exclusive to Pokémon Scarlet and may appear in the Grass Biome of Area Zero after you’ve completed the The Way Home storyline.

Since it’s a Bug and Fighting-type Pokémon, Slither Wing is weak to Bug, Fairy and Fire-type attacks, while being especially weak to Flying-type attacks.

Pokémon Violet players will need to trade with someone playing Scarlet to add Slither Wing to their Pokédex. We recommend trying the trade codes 0380 or 0386 to trade an Iron Moth for a Slither Wing.

Sandy Shocks location and weaknesses

Sandy Shocks is exclusive to Pokémon Scarlet and can be found near Research Station No. 1, or in the hills above it, in Area Zero after you’ve completed The Way Home storyline.


Sandy Shocks can be found near landslides.

Being an Electric and Ground-type Pokémon makes Sandy Shocks weak to Grass, Ground, Ice and, oddly, Water-type attacks. You’ll want to avoid Electric-type attacks, because they’ll have no effect upon Sandy Shocks.

If you’re playing Pokémon Violet, you’ll have to trade with a Scarlet player to add this Pokémon to your Pokédex. Try using the trade codes 0381 or 0387 to trade an Iron Thorns for a Sandy Shocks.

Thanks to being a Ground and Steel-type Pokémon, Iron Treads is weak to Fighting, Fire, Ground and Water-type attacks. Electric and Poison-type attacks, however, have no effect on Iron Treads.

Iron Thorns location and weaknesses

Iron Thorns is exclusive to Pokémon Violet and can be found in the Underground Biome of Area Zero once The Way Home has been completed.

Since Iron Thorns is a Rock and Electric-type Pokémon, it is weak to Fighting, Grass and Water-type moves. Though you may want to focus on Ground-type attacks, which it’s especially weak to.

Roaring Moon location and weaknesses

Roaring Moon is exclusive to Pokémon Scarlet and can only be found in the hidden cave biome of Area Zero after you’ve completed The Way Home.

To find this hidden cave, head to Research Station No. 3 where, when standing outside the building, you’ll be able to see a tree – accessed by going through a stone arch – when you look slightly to your left.


Go to the tree in the distance.

Head to this tree and, when you reach it, you’ll find a collection of boulders to your left and, in-between said stones, there is a small passageway. Exploring this passage will bring you to a tunnel and, at the end, is the hidden cave and a large waterfall.


Find the passageway amongst the rocks.

Roaring Moons can spawn both in this tunnel and the main part of the cave itself. If one hasn’t spawned, then simply exit the cave completely to reset the spawns inside. Keep doing this until a Roaring Moon appears! You can also force the spawn by defeating the Pokémon inside, but that method may take more time.

Roaring Moon is a Dragon and Dark-type Pokémon, which means it’s weak to Dragon, Fighting, Ice and Rock-type attacks. It’s also especially weak to Fairy-type attacks, but Psychic-attacks will have no effect on Roaring Moon.

If you’re playing Pokémon Violet, then you will need to trade with a Scarlet player to add Roaring Moon to your collection. We recommend trying the trade codes 0397 or 0398 and offering an Iron Valiant in exchange for a Roaring Moon.

Iron Valiant location and weaknesses

Iron Valiant is exclusive to Pokémon Violet and only spawns in the hidden cave biome of Area Zero after you’ve completed The Way Home.

The hidden cave can be rather hard to find if you don’t know where to look, so we recommend heading to Research Station No. 3. Here, when standing outside, you’ll be able to see a tree by gazing through a stone arch.

Visit this tree and investigate the boulders lying beside it to find a passageway, which leads to the hidden cave.

Iron Valiants can spawn both in the tunnel leading to the cave and within the main part of the cave itself. If you can’t find one, try leaving the cave completely before going back in as this will cause the Pokémon to spawn. Keep doing this until you find an Iron Valiant!

You can also defeat the Pokémon inside the cave to, eventually, force an Iron Valiant to spawn, but this can take longer than the ‘Leave and Enter’ method.

Thank you to Techno Trainer for uploading the above video to YouTube.

Iron Valiant is a Fairy and Fighting-type Pokémon and, for this reason, is weak to Fairy, Flying, Poison, Psychic and Steel-type moves. Dragon-type attacks, however, will have no effect on this Pokémon.

Trainers exploring Paldea in Pokémon Scarlet will need to trade with a player using Pokémon Violet to add Iron Valiant to their Pokédex. For this reason, we recommend trying the trade codes 0397 or 0398 and offering a Roaring Moon for an Iron Valiant.

Koraidon and Miraidon in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet explained

Koraidon and Miradion are both part of the Paradox Pokémon collection in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet. Since they’re also the mascot Pokémon for the games’, you can only catch Koraidon in Scarlet and Miraidon in Violet.

How these legendaries are caught, however, works a little differently when compared to past mainline Pokémon titles. This is because one Koraidon / Miraidon will accompany you throughout the games’, acting as your main form of transportation (goodbye and good riddance bicycle), while, once you’ve completed the main campaign, you’ll be able to catch a second Koraidon / Miradion.


You’ll meet your first legendary Pokémon during the game’s opening hour.

Walking Wake and Iron Leaves in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet explained

Walking Wake and Iron Leaves were released as part of the Pokémon Day 2023 celebrations and can only be obtained by defeating them in Tera Raids. Since these Tera Raids are only available for a limited time period, it’s a good idea to catch both of these Pokémon when they’re available.

Walking Wake and Iron Leaves were orginally only available between Monday, 27th February 2023 to Sunday, 12th March 2023, but it has been mentioned that both Pokémon will return during future event.

While Walking Wake is exclusive to Tera Raids in Pokémon Scarlet and Iron Leaves is exclusive to Tera Raids in Pokémon Violet, you can use the online capabilties of both games to join Tera Raids occuring in the opposite version to one you’re playing. This gives you the chance to obtain either Walking Wake or Iron Leaves without having to trade for the Pokémon, but it does require a paid Nintendo Switch Online membership.

It’s important to note that, at the time of writing, only one Walking Wake and one Iron Leaves can be caught per save file.

Walking Wake is a Water and Dragon-type Pokémon, making its only weaknesses Dragon and Fairy-type Pokémon. Depending on your team, this can be either a blessing or a curse; if you have a strong Dragon or Fairy-type then your choice for the Tera Raid is easy, but, if you don’t, you’ll either have to find such Pokémon or use a Pokémon which doesn’t have such a great advantage against Walking Wake.

Iron Leaves is a Grass and Psychic-type Pokémon, which means its weak to Dark, Fire, Flying, Ghost, Ice and Poison-types. It is, however, especially weak to Bug-type Pokémon, so we recommend choosing a strong Bug-type when battling it in Tera Raids.

Good luck completing your Paradox Pokémon collection!
