Pokemon Scarlet & Violet are finally here and there are new Legendary species for trainers to find in the Paldea region — so here is everything we know about all the Legendary Pokemon in Gen 9.

Catching Legendary Pokemon is a particularly special challenge for the series, and this has continued in the recently released Pokemon Scarlet & Violet. These powerful Pokemon have appeared in many ways throughout the past nine generations, and usually have effects on the events of the main narrative.

While recent games like Pokemon Sword & Shield have saved the majority of Legendary and Mythical encounters for post-game and DLC, this has changed slightly in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet. One of the biggest differences for Gen 9 is the early appearance of Cyclizar, and the importance of the primary box Legendaries.

Below are all the confirmed Legendaries that appear in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet.

Unfortunately, no other Legendary or Mythical Pokemon have been confirmed at this time other than Scarlet’s Koraidon and Violet’s Miraidon.

More Legendary Pokemon could possibly be added to Scarlet & Violet via potential DLC in the future — though Game Freak and Nintendo have not confirmed any DLC plans as of writing.
