Each new generation of Pokémon games gets two legendary box art. And in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, those are Koraidon and Miraidon. When choosing which version of the game to get, your exclusive legendary boxart is usually one of the most important factors that will lead you to choose. So which legendary should you side with: Koraidon or Miraidon?

Koraidon vs. Miraidon: which one should I get?

In terms of the number of typing strengths/weaknesses and stat distribution, both Koraidon and Miraidon they are similar. Koraidon just has a higher Attack, making it good for physical moves, and Miraidon has a higher Sp. Atk, which is the stat that concerns special moves. As such, the “best” legendary, in our opinion, depends entirely on design.

Here’s a breakdown of the strengths and weaknesses of these two Legendaries:

Koraidon (Fighting/Dragon)

  • strong against: Fire, Water, Electric, Grass, Bug, Rock and Dark
  • weak against: Ice, Flying, Psychic, Dragon and twice weaker than Fairy

Miraidon (Electric/Dragon)

  • strong against: Fire, Water, Grass, Flying, Steel and twice as strong against Electric
  • weak against: Ice, Flying, Psychic, Dragon and Fairy

Both Fighting and Electric Typing have their own advantages. Fighting-type moves are super effective against so many types and not very effective against them. Meanwhile, Electric-type moves are only super effective against two, but have better coverage. Unless you use it against an Electric, Grass, Dragon, or Ground type, it will deal the normal amount of damage.

Can you get both Koraidon and Miraidon in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet?

Unfortunately, you can either capture Koraidon or Miraidon, depending on which version of the game you get. You’ll still see the other Legendary in the game, but you won’t be able to throw a Pokéball at it.
