All Legendary Pokémon locations in Scarlet and Violet: The Indigo Disk

Even if you’re not the type of trainer who wants to completely fill out their Pokédex, basically everyone is drawn to catching the Legendary Pokémon. These are some of the most powerful and iconic monsters in the series, and with the final DLC for Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, called The Indigo Disk, adding in the last batch for generation nine, there’s even more to hunt down around Blueberry Academy.

Unlike older titles where you just needed to go hunt down these majestic Pokémon, this time the process is a bit more complicated. Get your Pokéballs ready because we have some Legendaries to catch!

How to find every Legendary

Legendary monsters won’t show up at all in The Indigo Disk until you’ve completed the main story and begun the postgame. Once you’ve rolled credits, head back to Blueberry Academy and speak to the Director to get a small tutorial on Special Coaches. Once that’s over, he will also tell you about a mysterious man outside the academy. This is Snackworth, and will be the one to direct you to the Legendary creatures.

For every 10 BBQ quests you complete, he will give you a special treat that relates to one of the monsters, as well as a little hint as to where they are. The order in which he gives you the snacks and clues is completely random, so you never know when you will be able to hunt down the Legendary you want. We’ve decoded all of his weird clues and will show you where you need to go on the map.

It should be noted that there are no special tricks when catching a Legendary, however, you should make a save before you battle them just in case your attempt goes wrong. You can technically use any ball you want to catch them, but we recommend Ultra Balls for the best chances. Every Legendary will be level 70, so make sure you have a good counter and a high-level team ready before you challenge one.

The best Pokémon Scarlet and Violet mods
Three shiny Pokémon by a picnic.

It's no secret that Pokémon Scarlet and Violet launched in a technically messy state. Many are willing to look past the flaws in performance, graphics, and quality of life features, however, others took it upon themselves to fix or improve aspects of the game that the developers can't or won't. While modding is typically associated with PC games, it is possible to do it on your Nintendo Switch. There are limitations, and they may come with some risks, but these mods can certainly make your journey through Paldea more enjoyable. Don't expect a 4K, 60 fps enhancement here, but these are the best Pokémon Scarlet and Violet mods out there.
How to mod Pokémon Scarlet and Violet
Modding on your Nintendo Switch isn't as easy as it is on PC, but as long as you follow a few simple steps, anyone can do it. The basics of it simply ask you to download the Trinity Mod Loader tool, download the mod(s) you want and add them to the tool, and then apply the mod to your Switch.

Be aware that mods can result in you getting banned by Nintendo, so it is recommended that you play offline while using them. Even then, you do so at your own risk.

Pokémon Scarlet and Violet Academy Ace Tournament guide
A Spanish inspired landscape and castle from Pokemon Scarlet and Pokemon Violet.

Pokémon titles have always provided extra content for players to challenge themselves with after completing the main quest. Pokémon Scarlet and Violet not only has a far more expansive series of main quests but tons more to do even after beating all three of them. Aside from hunting down legendary Pokémon or rematching all the gym leaders, one of the toughest post-game activities that will open up is the Academy Ace Tournament.

Unlike gym leaders, or most other trainers you will fight around Paldea, the competition you will go up against in the Academy Ace Tournament typically won't build their teams around a single Pokémon type. Their teams are all very high-level and diverse, making them quite the challenge to overcome. Here's all the information you need to train your team to become the Academy Ace Tournament champion in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet.

How to EV train in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet
Gengar in a city.

Even though Pokémon has reached mass appeal thanks to its cute monsters and simple RPG mechanics, it has also fostered a community of more hardcore trainers. These trainers don't necessarily want to catch 'em all, but rather catch and train the best. To the untrained eye, any two Pokémon of the same species would be identical, but Effort Values, aka EVs, have existed for generations and make a massive impact on how your Pokémon's stats work. This can get very complicated, especially if you're new to EV training, so we'll fill out your Pokédex entry with everything you need to know about EV training in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet.
