The Toyota Miraidon Project will be a project in which Toyota makes a serious effort at creating Miraidon in real life. For reference, Miraidon is the package Pokemon you can ride on to travel around in Pokemon Violet. It has a futuristic look compared to the more dinosaur-like Koraidon, and it’s able to take on a motorcycle appearance, complete with wheels.

Here’s the image shared alongside the announcement on social media:

Toyota already shared a prototype of its real-life Pokemon. Back in November 2023, it displayed a life-size Miraidon at the Waku Waku World event. This event took place in Toyota City in Aichi. The Miraidon even had glowing eyes to complete the look.

Aside from this, there’s not much information so far on the Toyota Miraidon Project. However, it probably will not be something that regular civilians will be able to purchase. It will likely be similar to the life-sized Gundam in Japan, in which Toyota will make it as something to display.

As mentioned earlier, Miraidon is the Pokemon you can ride on in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet. You can also upgrade it to let it fly and climb up mountains. As a Pokemon you can control in battle, Miraidon is an Electric/Dragon Type.

Pokemon Scarlet and Violet are readily available for the Nintendo Switch. More information on the Toyota Miraidon Project will come out in the near future.
