Players meet both Koraidon and Miraidon in the early stages of the game, depending on whether their version is Scarlet or Violet. However, the Pokémon will be in a weakened state at this time. Despite you being allowed to ride it, it still lacks much of its power at first.

To use Koraidon and Miraidon at full strength, you have to take on the Path of Legends. This quest requires you to track down and defeat the five Titan Pokémon, where each one defeated restores one of Koraidon and Miraidon’s powers.

Playing through the game’s mainline story, you eventually get and use Koraidon and Miraidon’s abilities in battle. Especially through the early stages of the final chapter of the story, the game divides progress among three questlines, so you must gain all the right gym badges and take on the Elite Four. You must also deal with Team Star and Arven with the Titan Pokémon.

Upon completing all three quests, a new objective appears, in a place called Area Zero. Go there and complete the story in order to gain the ability to use Koraidon and Miraidon battle forms.

To activate this, you need to have at least one free spot in your Pokémon team. You can open the menu by pressing X and selecting Koraidon/Miraidon to change its battle form. This brings the Pokémon into a player’s party and allows them to use it in battle.
