To ride Koraidon and Miraidon in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet, players will need to progress with the main story.
As an open-world game, it’s essential to have a feature in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet that allows players to move around the map quickly.
This is exactly the purpose of riding Koraidon and Miraidon. They work as vehicles to allow the players to explore Paldea without having to run all the time.
Thankfully, they are unlocked fairly early in the game.
In this guide, I will explain how to ride Koraidon and Miraidon in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet and also showcase how to upgrade their vehicle capabilities to make them faster.
How to Ride Koraidon and Miraidon in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet
To ride Koraidon in Miraidon in the game, you’ll need to fulfill three requirements.

And that’s all. After completing the Academy storyline, you’ll get a ‘How to Ride’ notification on your screen.
Don’t worry too much about following these steps since all of them are part of the main story. Unless you’ve driven off some random path right at the beginning of the game, you have nothing to worry about.
To ride your legendary Pokemon, press the plus (+) button on your controller. To jump, press the B button. And that’s everything Koraidon and Miraidon can do when they’re first unlocked.

However, their abilities do not end there. Instead, they can unlock dashes, surfing, higher jumps, and gliding. Let’s see how to unlock new abilities for Koraidon and Miraidon.

Here are all the Titan Pokemon in Scarlet and Violet.
- Klawf, the Stony Cliff Titan (Level 15, unlocks dashing)
