How to Catch Legendary Pokémon in Pokémon SV: The Indigo Disk

You must beat The Indigo Disk’s main story before you can catch and encounter any Legendary Pokémon. You can, however, transfer them from Pokémon Home into Scarlet/Violet if you already own any.

Once you’ve beaten the DLC and blessed your ears with the Ed Sheeran x Toby Fox remix, you’ll wake up in Blueberry Academy. Make your way to the Entrance and talk to Snacksworth.

For every ten Solo Blueberry Quests (BBQs) or one Group BBQ completed, he’ll hand you a Treat for a random Legendary Pokémon. Some Pokémon Treats can only be obtained through Solo Quests, while others require a Group Quest completion, depending on if you have Scarlet or Violet.

Once you have the Treat for the Legendary Pokémon you want — for example, a Latios Treat — you can visit the location Snacksworth mentions and catch them. Sorry fellow shiny hunters, all Legendary Pokémon in The Indigo Disk are shiny locked.
