Miraidon location in Pokemon SV
To get Miraidon, you need to play Pokémon Scarlet; he cannot be obtained in Pokémon Violet under any circumstances.
Like Koraidon, Miraidon can be caught using the same method you use to catch other Pokémons. He is located near Poco Path Lighthouse during the early game.
To get to this area, fast travel to Area Zero. Then, jump right into the Great Crater of Paldea. Keep on your way down through the clouds until you reach the bottom of the crater. Here, you will find a rock shaped like a ramp. The Miraidon will be waiting for you there.
Like Koraidon, you cannot use Miraidon in his battle form right after catching him. You must first beat the game to access Miraidon’s Battle form.
