Can You Get Koraidon in Pokémon Violet? (How to Catch Koraidon in Pokémon Violet)

Capturing the second Koraidon makes it to my top 10 moments as a gamer. However, I wanted to get Koraidon into Pokémon Violet, but I didn’t know how.

That was until someone hinted at trading. It was a face-slap moment since I considered myself an “Expert” at this game 🤦‍♂️.

Anyway, with help from a friend, I accessed the trading platform and found an interested player. Luckily, he was in the same town as me, and we met to finalize the trade.

I thought of sharing how to get Koraidon in Pokémon Violet.

The only way to get Koraidon in Pokémon Violet is by trading. Koraidon is a legendary Pokémon available on Pokémon Scarlet.

You’ll get the first at the beginning of the game and the second at the end. For Pokémon Violet players, you’ll get Miraidon.

These Legendary Pokémon are loved for their impressive attacks and speed. Here’s a table outlining their stats 👇:





Fight / Dragon

Electric/ Dragon










Sp. Attack



Sp. Defense






Luckily, getting this second Koraidon or Miraidon follows the same process 😃. Here’s how to get Koraidon in Pokémon Scarlet:

  1. Collect all the Gym Badges, beat all Team Star Bases, and defeat Titans.
  2. Go to the Great Crater of Paldea to complete the game’s storyline.
  3. Go back to the bottom of the crater once the credits roll.
  4. You’ll find a Koraidon waiting for you on an incline. Battle it using Fairy Type Pokémon.
  5. Once you’ve weakened it, use your Pokeball to capture it.

What Pokémon Ball is best to catch Koraidon?

Use a Master Ball, Ultra Ball, or Repeat Ball to capture a Koraidon.

If you have a Master Ball, use it to skip the battle and capture Koraidon 😉.
