Several Legendaries from previous Gens can now be caught in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet, and so a trainer has shared a helpful illustration of the Paldea map that shows the locations of all the returning Legendaries after the release of the Indigo Disk DLC.

The release of the Indigo Disk DLC of Pokemon Scarlet and Violet marked the return of many fan-favorite Pokemon in Gen 9, as well as the debut of new species such as Hydrapple, Archaludon, and Terapagos.

Fans are sparing no effort in catching them all and adding them to their Pokedex, but some of the most sought-after Pokemon in the game are the returning Legendaries from previous games, such as Rayquaza, Lugia, Groudon, Kyurem, and more.

Finding all the returning Legendaries all across the Paldea region can be quite daunting for fans, but they can now rejoice as a player has shared a quick and easy reference to catch ’em all!

A Reddit user named ‘HellcatTheCracka’ shared a post with a picture of a map of the Paldean region showcasing the locations of all the returning Legendaries in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet. The player wrote, “For Anyone Who Needs It” while adding: “Feel free to save it.”

Several users thanked the OP in the comments section, as they expressed that it was a “huge help” and that they were “super excited” to check out the Legendary locations in the game.

After one player asked, “When can these Pokémon start spawning around the map? Do you have to buy an upgrade with BB points for them or need to finish the DLC?” others chipped in with their replies.

“Finish the DLC and then head to the entrance of the Blueberry Academy. There will be a new NPC named Snacksworth who will give you treats for the Legendaries (which means they now spawn). It costs 10 BP quests for each Legendary and then you need to do 12 (I think) group quests (the yellow ones) to get the rest of them,” a fan explained.

Coming to version exclusives, a user mentioned that trainers “can get the Scarlet exclusives by doing BBQs with a Scarlet player in the union circle,” with the same applying to Violet players.

Shedding more light on getting version exclusives, a player commented: “(they) can only be unlocked via co-op/group quests. The ones that have to be unlocked via co-op/group quests are swapped between the two versions. Two people with the same version can unlock all 25 when they play together.”

This map will certainly prove useful for players looking to catch all the returning Legendaries in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet and make their Indigo Disk DLC team stronger.
