What are Paradox Pokemon in Scarlet & Violet?

Paradox Pokemon are brand new Pokemon that bear a heavy resemblance to existing creatures. They appear to be divided into two groups: ‘Ancient’ for Pokemon Scarlet and ‘Future’ for Pokemon Violet.

These mysterious Pokemon are detailed in the Violet Book and Scarlet Book, which both feature records of an expedition to an “uncharted area” of Paldea from long ago.

The most important thing to point out is that Paradox Pokemon are an entirely new group of Pokemon with their own Pokedex entry and number. They’re not variants, regional forms, or evolutions.

Paradox Pokemon can be found in various parts of The Great Crater of Paldea (Area Zero) at the center of the map, but only after you’ve completed the main game and the credits have rolled.

The good news is that, unlike Legendary Pokemon, you can catch these Paradox Pokemon more than once. This means you don’t need to worry about accidentally defeating them when trying to catch them.
