Pokemon Scarlet and Pokemon Violets Legendary Pokemon are very different from what we’re used to in the Pokemon games in more than one way. For a start: they transform, and you can ride them, but they’re also going to be a significant part of the game, and it seems like you’ll capture one of them very early on your adventure. 

Both Koraidon and Miraidon can change their form depending on the environment that you’re travelling upon. On the ground, they can be ridden like a motorcycle and climb steep mountains easily. Hopefully, they don’t fall like the Hisuian Sneales seen in Pokemon Legends: Arceus. Your Legendary Pokemon can also take to the water and air, making it the be-all to end-all of travel Pokemon.

Here are all their forms, as laid out on Pokemon’s official website

  • Sprinting Build / Drive Mode

    Traveling through Paldea on foot can be quite the hassle. If you learn how to ride Sprinting Build Koraidon or Drive Mode Miraidon, you’ll be able to traverse the expansive Paldea region more freely and at full speed.

  • Swimming Build / Aquatic Mode

    On your adventure, you’ll be able to jump into rivers, lakes, and vibrant oceans to approach the Pokémon that live there or cross perilous waters in a snap by riding Swimming Build Koraidon or Aquatic Mode Miraidon.

  • Gliding Build / Glide Mode

    You can jump from mountains, towering cliffs or tall buildings and glide toward your destination. Not only does this offer you more options when choosing what to do, but you can also freely glide around and enjoy a view that you can see only from the Paldean skies.


As seen in the pictures above, the Pokemon will transform differently to adapt to their environments. Koraidon, for example, spreads its tendrils to form wings, while the antennae on Miraidon’s head extend to create a big wing.
