    All Koraidon and Miraidon Abilities

    When you start Pokémon Scarlet or Violet, Koraidon and Miraidon do not have all the abilities that they are naturally supposed to have. Throughout the game, you must feed them sandwiches to restore their abilities—though not just any sandwiches. After you beat each Titan, Arven will make special sandwiches that you can feed to Koraidon or Miraidon. After each time they eat one of these sandwiches, they will get one ability back. These abilities include:

    • Dash: Koraidon and Miraidon can run faster while you ride them
    • Swim: Koraidon and Miraidon can swim across the water, unlocking your access to new Pokémon and various islands
    • High Jump: Koraidon and Miraidon can jump much higher onto platforms you couldn’t reach before
    • Glide: Koraidon and Miraidon can glide for a short time across the sky using their wings
    • Climb: Koraidon and Miraidon can climb up even the steepest of walls and mountainsides

    How to Unlock Dash

    How to Unlock Swim

    How to Unlock Glide

    For the Gliding ability, you’ll need to take down the Quaking Earth Titan. This one is a bit tougher and will require you to use Bug, Grass, Water, and Flying-type Pokémon in Pokémon Scarlet and Ground, Water, Fire, and Fighting-type Pokémon in Pokémon Violet. These Pokémon should all be around level 44. The Quaking Earth Titan will be hanging around in Asado Desert.

    How to Unlock Climb
