Even if you’re not the type of trainer who wants to completely fill out their Pokédex, basically everyone is drawn to catching the Legendary Pokémon. These are some of the most powerful and iconic monsters in the series, and with the final DLC for Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, called The Indigo Disk, adding in the last batch for generation nine, there’s even more to hunt down around Blueberry Academy.
Unlike older titles where you just needed to go hunt down these majestic Pokémon, this time the process is a bit more complicated. Get your Pokéballs ready because we have some Legendaries to catch!
Legendary monsters won’t show up at all in The Indigo Disk until you’ve completed the main story and begun the postgame. Once you’ve rolled credits, head back to Blueberry Academy and speak to the Director to get a small tutorial on Special Coaches. Once that’s over, he will also tell you about a mysterious man outside the academy. This is Snackworth, and will be the one to direct you to the Legendary creatures.
For every 10 BBQ quests you complete, he will give you a special treat that relates to one of the monsters, as well as a little hint as to where they are. The order in which he gives you the snacks and clues is completely random, so you never know when you will be able to hunt down the Legendary you want. We’ve decoded all of his weird clues and will show you where you need to go on the map.
It should be noted that there are no special tricks when catching a Legendary, however, you should make a save before you battle them just in case your attempt goes wrong. You can technically use any ball you want to catch them, but we recommend Ultra Balls for the best chances. Every Legendary will be level 70, so make sure you have a good counter and a high-level team ready before you challenge one.
