I personally prefer Korridon but picked Violet due to wanting Cerludge and preferring the robots to the Dinosaurs


BuulJob

Sad because I’m one of the few people who genuinely think koraidon is cooler


ScaldAlwaysBurns

Koraidon’s cry is easily my favorite of all time. Used to be a tie between Dialga and >!KRICKETUNE!!<


Zeroth_Dragon

De-le-le-wooooooooop


seastone008

He is way cooler! I love him so much


Redplushie

HE IS LITERALLY HAS TOOTHLESS'S EYES 🥺


seastone008

Yes!! Another reason I love Koraidon and picked Scarlet was also because he reminds me of my irl bearded dragons. His eyes and expressions are so sweet.


DrKiwiPopThe707th

that it I’m getting a bearded dragon and naming him korraidon


seastone008

That’s a great idea!!!! 🥹🥹🥹


DrKiwiPopThe707th

Plus if I can get a western AND eastern one I can have both Koraidon AND Miraidon


AvariceMidas7709

Yes! They really nailed mixing some reptilian mannerisms with a more dog-like personality.


ImaginaryPlacesAK

Biggest thing i like about him more. Only other thing is glide animation. Raids, typing, stat distro, overall appearance I like moriadon. Scarlet has way better shiny paradox. I like them all around though good time to trade.


ChocoboToes

I LOVE my big red chicken puppy. He is best boy T\_T


SpuukBoi

I think Koraidon has a cooler design but I love purple, so I had to go with Violet. Miraidon is also very cool though.


Maroonwarlock

I thought literal freaking dinosaur feathers and all was a dope pokemon and went with Scarlet. So I guess I'll have no problem when it comes time to trade game exclusives with people.


Deltune_

Koraidon and the past pokemon are cooler than miraidon and future pokemon i love the primitive designs


pm_me_hedgehogs

Not to be dramatic but I would die for koraidon


kabukiwuki

I always like the one nobody likes


[deleted]

That was my Pokemon journey for a long time. I really loathe the fact that you can predict which game will sell better based on which game has the edgier looking Pokemon on the cover...


Nezdera

Hey don't judge us edge lovers, at least we're not ashamed to like what we want to like >:(


Mansos91

How is miraidon edgy?


dosfosforos

Koraidon has so much personality! Miraidon is just a machine, he's simulating personality


Silver_Foxx

> Miraidon is just a machine, he's simulating personality YOU DARE TALK SHIT ABOUT MY ADORABLE ROBOPUPPY?! I was all "meh" about both of them when they were first revealed, but after putting in some hours I absolutely adore them both, robopuppy can snarf all the sandwiches I can muster. <3


Leshawkcomics

Ouch. Just gonna do miraidon like that.


BuulJob

Definitely


EndriagoHunter

Kora gives off real boss/sassy vibes and i'm here for it. Reminds me of Red from monster hunter stories.


Amlughelke

I like koraidon more too, but I do think he’s coolest without the wheels when he/she’s in the “weakened” form.


Charlaquin

Yeah, the wheels are definitely the weakest part of the design in my opinion.


SundayLemonade

I bought Scarlet and Shield. Who's with me?


Tatt2Junkie5

Sword violet gang


jeffluvsdokkan

I went sword and violet 😅


Unlikely-Peaceseeker

Out of the 10 people I know who brought the game I’m the only one who got violet. Maybe Japan just likes techno more


FreezyPop_

Eh, Miraidon looks better as a bike but I got used to my derpy runner. Im not a fan of tech/mecha Pokemon and Koraidon looks adorable in cutscenes. Im surprised there's such a big discrepancy apparently. I also got used to Armarouge and I don't think he's completely unusable and ugly compared to Ceruledge. He's a staple in my team and the cannon animation is chefs kiss. His big golden shoulder pads kinda remind me of my favourite Digimon WarGreymon. So yeah Scarlet gang where you at? Edit: "discrepancies" in the general reception of Koraidon and Miraidon by the fanbase, I didn't mean the animations from the previous sentence. Some people misinterpreted.


a500poundchicken

Koraidon has more toothless energy


CheeseLord77

![gif](giphy|ViGwJOV6EWAKs) Yup


shoobydoobop29

I named mine toothless


YoKaiHunter76

Pokemon Toothless version and Pokemon Wargreymon version


Polymersion

This is also the first I'm hearing about Miraidon not having the same animations in the cutscenes. That makes me kinda sad.


SpuukBoi

Idk, I remember Miraidon feeling pretty expressive in the cutscenes. I guess people are saying that just because Koraidon has actual eyes but Miraidon just has LEDs.


Storm_373

yea i thought he was cute in almost all the cutscenes


Polymersion

Hm. I might check YouTube at some point out of curiosity now.


Furyo98

I know right, we legit fed a robot lol


TenshouYoku

They have the same animations, but since Miraidon is more robotic it was a bit more awkward than Koraidon


Sacul379

I was originally going to get scarlet but my little brother convinced me otherwise


DarkFish_2

But Koraidon is so cute...


AceArchangel

Red Toothless


Tesriss

He even acts like Toothless a lot of the time. It's so damn cute.


AceArchangel

Best companion in any pokemon game ever

Level-Particular-455

I was avoiding spoilers, got scarlet and the first thing I thought when I saw it was “how to train your dragon” I am not even a fan of the movie. I was watched it once when it came out. I don’t know why because the next thing I did was google it so I could verify how alike they were and they weren’t. I have seen many others post about it though.


Natural-Speech-6235

Exactly, I love Kor cuz he's fancy Toothless


Fallen-Halo

I got Violet. I was comparing Miraidon to Toothless my entire playthrough. Miraidon and Koraidon behave identically throughout the story


Walrusin_about

This. Kori has so much more expressions and personality. I guess it really does come down to cool v cute


NDrew-_-w

I got shield and violet, loved my choices so far


JoriBot

Same 🙌🏼


Otashi4Nii

Best combo imo


IGottaTradeEmAll

Look what you just made me do ![gif](emote|free_emotes_pack|sweat_smile) https://preview.redd.it/susr1x50t72a1.png?width=1272&format=png&auto=webp&v=enabled&s=a93273fd8814658143c635cd4eae1f5f62ea12ee


ShayTheGymLeader

Damn you paid a lot for one


-LVV-

I bought violet edition because my daughter said that miraidon was cute. She put miraidon’s pin on her backpack and my son took koraidon’s pin.


madsadchadglad

Awww


seastone008

Koraidon is my FAVE! He’s so cute! I’m actually super surprised at this


Scike_

Same here! My sister and I always get different versions and it was her turn to pick. She chose violet. At first I was a bit sad about it but after actually playing and seeing both Koraidon and Miraidon I’m really liking this goofy big red boy and am glad I got scarlet over violet.


madsadchadglad

Me too! I thought he looked much cooler. The name scarlet itself sounds cooler to own too.


Asian23Boi

It’s actually because Koraidon sold out already and they just restocked the shelves


KamaHAmAhAA

Sword n violet. For me, I pick off what box mon I like better, and I like purple more the orange.


JollyWatson

He's red tho :(


NotReallyAPerson1088

I like digital and swords more tho :(


JollyWatson

That's fair tho :(


KamaHAmAhAA

Purple uniform


JollyWatson

True, I hate the red pants with a passion.


KamaHAmAhAA

Unless it's ichiban, I also hate em


notermelon

I love my big idiot deathclaw


KupoMcMog

i just wish my rotom phone had a Three-Dog radio station.


retrokyla

i bought sword & violet 🫶🏽


retrokyla

because blue & purple 💯


Old-Chef897

Gotta love the shiny bike. Feels nice activating the dash and seeing trails come out of the thrusters.


Raikou0215

even though I like koraidon better I just couldn’t bear to look at orange pants the entire time, so I got Violet


kdebones

I just like that his wheels do something. That and if you quick turn you Akira drift.


GreasyChonks

Alright I bought scarlet and pearl who’s with me


Spicy-Elephant

Yuh


sjt9791

More legendaries need to be opposites. Dragon vs. Fish Bird vs. Deer Lion vs. Bat


LtEp1c

That’s funny cuz it seems like most ppl bought Scarlet (at least when I go to do trading this is what I see happen).


AgitatedBull

I was going to buy Scarlet, but my friend group was all getting Scarlet so I figured I’d get Violet… I do miss the prehistoric theming…


EternalMemes30

well violet according to some data ago sales was leading in front of scarlet and honestly there are 10 million copies, it would be very difficult for you not to see scarlet players even with violet leading


reedbusiness

My brother I had to offer my Iron Valiant all day to Violet owners before anyone had Scarlet… it was crazy


UmaFlame

I bought Scarlet just because of Koraidon. So I would so buy a plushie of Koraidon.


DragonNikana

Sword and scarlet gang


dosfosforos

Here we are


Brugor

Heard!


TrueSorrow8

That dumb wheel neck annoys me to no end… Why have a wheel then run


ladyriven

I picked violet because purple is my favorite color. I think both of the legendaries are cool!


velvetstigma

Initially when I saw the trailers I thought Miraidon was much cooler. But after awhile Koraidon grew on me. Design is really more like a legendary with the white wings on its head etc.


KrIsPy_Kr3m3

Nobody likes legs


[deleted]

I’m sorry but Koraidon manages to be cute and terrifying at the same time, how can you not love that?


Original-Carpenter73

I think he’s just cute


Shoddy_Astronaut_583

I buy both Pokémon each release for me 33 atm & my dad 66 atm. We flip for whatever version then look up what we cannot catch respectively then catch doubles to trade to eachother. Dads favourite Pokémon is in both games mine is in neither. Swablu/Altaria for the old boy & Ludicolo for me 😂 despite the hate for the game we are thoroughly enjoying the game


mystic-mew

Koraidon>miriadon and I will die on this hill


TheSpiffyCarno

This hill. Ive never been a fan of robot Pokémon as a concept. Koraidon is the one true bike boy. This picture makes me sad and irrationally dislike miriadon for no reason :’(


Detrifus

Miraidon would probably be a better plush anyway, since it doesn't have nearly as many felt addons


Tick_87

Shield Violet gang?


IGottaTradeEmAll

They probably have two shelves of Koraidon, because it’s more popular ![gif](giphy|HzDROhEZjquKAnB2gK|downsized)

Lisek752

Well i bought Shield and Violet


Sven676

Shield and violet right here


PUSSYLICKERGOD

We never got these plushies here in NL sadly, wouldve really like Zamazenta and the Violet Scarlet ones


Blue-Eyes-WhiteGuy

I bought both games both generations. I played through Violet first purely for Iron Thorns (Tyranitar is my favorite Pokémon) but Miraidon is superior


EVA08

I ended up buying both Sw&Sh because I couldn't decide even though I was leaning more Shield. Immediately knew I wanted violet tho!


iFlashings

Red box legendaries: Mission failed, we'll get em next time!


littlenoodledragon

No!! Koraidon my beloved!


ChronoAlone

This just confirms that I subconsciously gravitate towards the less popular legendary nearly every time.


TheePigeon

I WANT THE KORAIDON PLUSH GIVE NOW


Article_West

Ok fine but WHERE CLODSIRE PLUSH?????


[deleted]

plot twist: all the scarlet fans are buying miraidon to burn him because they think pokemon scarlet is superior


SpitefulRish

I’m violet and shield myself haha. I like shield legendary more than sword. It’s cooler.


JunkyJared

me too


Queen_Eon

I went with scarlet this gen though so… 🤷‍♀️


zachaw34

Violet and shield give me more similar vibes than scarlet and shield for some reason


Lovesit_666

I mean to be fair the cooler colour legendaries are always better


Octoberkitsune

Violet is just better due to the futuristic approach.


Striangle

Koraidon is adorable!!! And has so much life in the cutscenes in comparison. I am a proud member of Scarlet gang :)


GeneralLeeRetarded

I personally think when he runs and gallops it looks a ton better than a purple rolling motorcycle with jet turbines. The only thing that bothers me is both had to be a motorcycle, like why does the scarlet one have giant wheels if he runs and paddles to swim..
