With Pokemon Scarlet and Violet out for the Nintendo Switch, players can explore the Paldea region and compile a team of their own. While plenty of fresh faces exist, some franchise favorites return in Gen IX. Some of the most famous Pokemon, the pseudo-legendaries, also return here. This time, you can add multiple members of this exclusive club to your team. Check out which of the titans return for the start of this new generation.
This list is a work in progress. We’ll continue updating this piece as we find more of these standout Pokemon, including the Gen IX pseudo-legendary. To see the best natures for each of these fighters, click on the image of that Pokemon below. The Press SPACE to Jump nature guides are up and ready for you!
The following Pokemon are confirmed pseudo-legendaries for Pokemon Scarlet and Violet. They’ve been found in the wild, so you’ll have to hunt across the Paldea region to track these powerful partners down or their preceding evolutions.
Though pseudo-legendaries take quite a while to level up and evolve, hitting that final evolution ignites the unstoppable fury of these Pokemon. You’ll mow down the competition with an optimized version of any of these battlers. Make sure to add these guys to your party as soon as you find them if you want to get cracking on the leveling process.
Baxcalibur (Gen IX)
Ice Dragon Pokemon
Thermal Exchange / Ice Body (Hidden)
The newest pseudo-legendary in the Pokemon catalog comes straight from Paldea! Baxcalibur is the last evolution of the Frigibax line, following Artibax, and it is known as the Ice Dragon Pokemon. We don’t have a Pokedex image yet, but we’ll update the article once we add it to our Pokedex.
