Scarlet and Violet leaks reveal more Paradox Pokemon information and potential Legendary DLC ...

As leaks continue to surface and reveal information that has proven to be reliable from a variety of sources, the closer we get to the release of Pokemon Scarlet and Violet, the less secrets there are remaining in the game.

New information about the Paradox Pokemon found in each version of the upcoming titles, along with a little context surrounding the Legendary Pokemon, Tera Pokemon, and other potential DLC, have surfaced over the last several days.

There are 14 total variations of this type across both games, including one from the past and one from the future, as well as some additional Pokemon that will tie into the gameplay or possibly be included in DLC.

Based on clues provided by leakers, we know all of the Pokemon that will receive these Paradox iterations, including that Donphan and Volcarona will likely get one for each game. Here are all of the information we currently know, at least based on the leaks.

  • Ancient Paradox Pokemon
    • Jigglypuff

Koraidon and Miraidon are both likely to be Paradox Pokemon, although it isn't known if they are of any particular species or if they have a modern Pokemon equivalent. Furthermore, Suicune and Virizion have both been suggested to have an Ancient and Future Paradox variant, though it is currently being saved for DLC.

The Terastal Phenomena, a new battle cheat where Pokemon can sift out elements of crystals, may also be a potential tie-in for a third Legendary Pokemon.

According to several leaks, the small face that appears on the main crystal when a Pokemon Terastallizes will be linked to that third Pokemon, which looks to be more like Zygarde in that it will not play an active role in the main games story, but will likely be there in places.

There are a number of smaller pieces of information that have also been dropped, as with all of these larger leak dumps. However, keep in mind that none of this information has been verified and cannot be taken as fact until something is officially shown by Game Freak or The Pokemon Company.
