Capturing Legendary Pokémon and Sinister Stakes

In addition to Miraidon and KoraidonPokémon Scarlet and Violet bring four new Legendary Pokémon : Chongjian, Baojian, Dinglu and Yuyu. They are, as usual, hidden somewhere in the world. This time, to find and capture them, you will have to find and destroy sinister stakes. We explain where they are and how.


The Seals and The Pious Sinisters

The four Legendary Pokémon are sealed at the four corners of Paldea. There is a seal in the South Zone, one in the West Zone, one in the North Zone and one in the East Zone. To break these seals, you will have to hunt the sinister stakes, planted in these same zones.

Capture Tips

Please note that Legendary Pokémon are unique Pokémon. If you provoke a battle, but knock out the Pokémon or fail to capture it, it will disappear for good. Remember to disable automatic backup before confronting them and to perform a manual backup before the fight.
