Koraidon - Type and Abilities

Koraidon - Possibly Dragon/Fighting Type

Although the Legendary Pokemon has been announced in the second trailer of Pokemon Scarlet and Violet, its typing and abilities are still unknown. It was said that Koraidon, along with Miraidon, have powers that surpass those of other Pokemon.

We speculate that Koraidon's type is Dragon/Fighting based on the Pokemon's overall design.

Koraidon is on the box art of Pokemon Scarlet so players will be able to get the Legendary when they get the Pokemon Scarlet version of the game.

Koraidon - Name Origin

SD - Koraidon Side View.png
Koraidon's name has several roots including korai (古来) which can mean ancient to refer to the past and the suffix -don which is a common suffix for dinosaur-like creatures).

It also includes raidon which is a homonym for ride on, which could allude to the idea that trainers will be able to ride these legendaries across the region. The dirt-bike inspired design also supports this idea.

Koraidon Alternate Forms

Koraidon, and its counterpart Miraidon, have been discovered to have forms that allow them to traverse different types of terrain. It appears that they can adjust their forms to better suit the environment they have to traverse.

Form Description
Sprinting Build Koraidon It may look like a motorcycle, but it uses its powerful legs to run on all fours.
Swimming Build Koraidon Koraidon floats by making its throat into a flotation device, and it propels itself by spreading a membrane between its toes and paddling through the water.
Gliding Build Koraidon Koraidon unravels the twisted tendrils on its head, forming wings to catch the air and glide through the skies.
Unnamed Climbing Form This form has been shown to scale cliffs, although an official name nor distinction for the form has not been confirmed.

Koraidon Evolution

Likely Evolves from Cyclizar


Based on Cyclizar's similarities to Koraidon and Miraidon, especially the wheel on its chest, and its categorization as the “Mount Pokemon”, Cyclizar seems highly likely to be a pre-evolution of the two box legendaries.

Cyclizar will likely evolve into Koraidon in Pokemon Scarlet and Miraidon in Pokemon Violet, similar to Cosmog in Pokemon Sun and Moon, which evolved into either Solgaleo or Lunala in its final form depending on the version.
