Both legendaries vaguely resemble Cyclizar, the Dragon/Normal type pokemon that can be seen all around the Paldea Region. Koraidon is a Dragon/Fighting legendary pokemon and the flagship creature of Pokemon Scarlet. It is known as the “Winged King” in old myths of the region, and it is said to be able to split the land in half with its bare fists.
Meanwhile, Miraidon is a Dragon/Electric type legendary pokemon in Pokemon Violet. Similar to its counterpart, Miraidon is known as the “Iron Serpent,” a creature capable of turning the land to ashes with its powerful lightning.
If any players missed the chance to participate in the recent Greninja Tera Raid, do not worry. There is one last chance to catch Greninja. The Greninja Tera Raid will be available for one last time from February 10-13, 2023.
Pokemon Scarlet and Violet are immediately available for the Nintendo Switch.
