A brand-new enigma is set to electrify the Pokemon Scarlet & Violet Indigo Disk DLC, and this time, it draws inspiration from the legendary Raikou. Brace yourselves for an insightful guide on locating and capturing the elusive Raging Bolt.

Amidst the Paradox Pokemon inhabiting Area Zero in Scarlet and Violet, The Indigo Disk brings a few new additions to the roster, including past forms of Entei and Raikou that go by Gouging Fire and Raging Bolt.

While the base game boasted an impressive array of Pokemon, each expansion has only intensified the excitement. With the global release of Pokemon Scarlet and Violet: The Indigo Disk, a long-necked Paradox Pokemon, reminiscent of Johto’s Raikou, takes center stage. Here’s how to get Raging Bolt in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet.

How to catch Raging Bolt in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet

To get Raging Bolt in Pokemon Scarlet, players will need to complete a quest from Perrin that consists of adding 200 Pokemon to your Blueberry Pokedex. Then, Raging Bolt will appear in Scarlet’s Area Zero.

Raging Bolt is a Pokemon Scarlet exclusive and the only way for Violet players to get it is to trade for it.

To begin the quest for Raging Bolt, players need to have started The Indigo Disk expansion on their Pokemon Scarlet game.

For those equipped with Pokemon Scarlet’s The Indigo Disk expansion, the journey commences by strolling down the gangway from the Blueberry Academy entrance. Here, a rendezvous with the photographer Perrin unfolds.

To track down Raging Bolt, traverse the treacherous landscapes of Area Zero. As you explore each level the Paradox Pokemon will reveal itself, allowing you to capture it.
