Trainers looking to find this particular Pokemon inside of the world of Pokemon Scarlet will have no luck, as this creature is exclusive to Pokemon Violet. Alongside its futuristic looks, this Paradox Pokemon will not appear in the past for those playing through Professor Sada’s adventure.

However, for those playing in Professor Turo’s futuristic world, players will need to wait until they are in the post-game story before they can find this particular Pokemon. After completing all three main storylines to a full climax, gamers will be treated to a post-game story that takes them into a new area that hasn’t been seen before.

Alongside this story, plenty of never before seen Pokemon will be available to be captured, including the focus of this story. Iron Valiant will be found inside this area, but you may need to battle a few before you can finally catch a Pokemon in this spot.

Thanks to trading with friends, players between these two versions will be able to swap different Pokemon back and forth with one another to complete their Pokedex, as well as earn a special item that makes the task of shiny hunting much easier.

Pokemon Scarlet and Violet are available now on Nintendo Switch.
