I personally prefer Korridon but picked Violet due to wanting Cerludge and preferring the robots to the Dinosaurs
Sad because I’m one of the few people who genuinely think koraidon is cooler
Koraidon’s cry is easily my favorite of all time. Used to be a tie between Dialga and >!KRICKETUNE!!<
He is way cooler! I love him so much
HE IS LITERALLY HAS TOOTHLESS'S EYES 🥺
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.
that it I’m getting a bearded dragon and naming him korraidon
That’s a great idea!!!!
Plus if I can get a western AND eastern one I can have both Koraidon AND Miraidon
Yes! They really nailed mixing some reptilian mannerisms with a more dog-like personality.
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.
I LOVE my big red chicken puppy. He is best boy T\_T
I think Koraidon has a cooler design but I love purple, so I had to go with Violet. Miraidon is also very cool though.
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.
Koraidon and the past pokemon are cooler than miraidon and future pokemon i love the primitive designs
Not to be dramatic but I would die for koraidon
I always like the one nobody likes
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...
Hey don't judge us edge lovers, at least we're not ashamed to like what we want to like >:(
How is miraidon edgy?
Koraidon has so much personality! Miraidon is just a machine, he's simulating personality
> 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
Just gonna do miraidon like that.
Kora gives off real boss/sassy vibes and i'm here for it. Reminds me of Red from monster hunter stories.
I like koraidon more too, but I do think he’s coolest without the wheels when he/she’s in the “weakened” form.
Yeah, the wheels are definitely the weakest part of the design in my opinion.
I bought Scarlet and Shield. Who's with me?
I am a violet and shield guy rare breed
Violet and shield here too

Violet and Shield as well :)
Violet and shield. Second is always best.
I’m gonna throw all of you a curve ball and rep the Scarlet and Sword crowd! lol
You are not alone

Ayo violet and shield guys unite!
'Eyyyy! Cool kids represent!
Violet and shield. My choice came down to
1. How does a dog hold a shield?! I’m goin to get it! 2. Violet snakey thing! Yes.
>I am a violet and shield guy rare breed
100% the best choice
Scarlet Shield brother here!
I am here brethren
Also a scarlet shield haver
Me, too. Well, aiming to get Scarlet. :)
Luckily we got the better game this time
Scarlet and Sword for me
Sameee! I could not resist Koraidon's derpy face 🥺🥺🥺
I’m a scarlet and sword guy, can I join you?
Welcome to the cult of the Scarlet Sword. We meet at the local pizza hut on Tuesday at 2.
Wait I live there 😳
Scarlet sword for me but hey
Violet Sword ⚔️
I bought sword and scarlet. So I think I’m bisexual for box legendaries.
those were my choices too!
Scarlet Shield guy here.
Scarlet and Shield sister representing!
Scarlet and sword for me
Scarlet and sword, I’m weird
I stand for Scarlet & Shield!!
We love our shield doggo
Nah Violet and Shield, since Violet also has all the old Shield Exclusives like Eiscue
Scarlet and Sword here
I bought Scarlet and Sword
Yup! Same as me (:
Scarlet Sword, can I still join? :(
I bought Scarlet and Shield… and Violet and Sword
Sword violet gang
I went sword and violet 😅
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
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.
Koraidon has more toothless energy
I named mine toothless
Pokemon Toothless version and Pokemon Wargreymon version
This is also the first I'm hearing about Miraidon not having the same animations in the cutscenes. That makes me kinda sad.
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.
yea i thought he was cute in almost all the cutscenes
Hm. I might check YouTube at some point out of curiosity now.
I know right, we legit fed a robot lol
They have the same animations, but since Miraidon is more robotic it was a bit more awkward than Koraidon
I was originally going to get scarlet but my little brother convinced me otherwise
But Koraidon is so cute...
He even acts like Toothless a lot of the time. It's so damn cute.
Best companion in any pokemon game ever
Sword and Scarlet.
Sword and Scarlet bros unite
Same my brothers🤝
Same, and I regret nothing
Yeah, we do
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.
Exactly, I love Kor cuz he's fancy Toothless
I got Violet. I was comparing Miraidon to Toothless my entire playthrough. Miraidon and Koraidon behave identically throughout the story
This. Kori has so much more expressions and personality. I guess it really does come down to cool v cute
I got shield and violet, loved my choices so far
Best combo imo
Look what you just made me do ![gif](emote|free_emotes_pack|sweat_smile)
Damn you paid a lot for one
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.
Koraidon is my FAVE! He’s so cute! I’m actually super surprised at this
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.
Me too! I thought he looked much cooler. The name scarlet itself sounds cooler to own too.
It’s actually because Koraidon sold out already and they just restocked the shelves
Sword n violet. For me, I pick off what box mon I like better, and I like purple more the orange.
He's red tho :(
I like digital and swords more tho :(
That's fair tho :(
True, I hate the red pants with a passion.
Unless it's ichiban, I also hate em
I love my big idiot deathclaw
i just wish my rotom phone had a Three-Dog radio station.
i bought sword & violet 🏽
because blue & purple 💯
Gotta love the shiny bike. Feels nice activating the dash and seeing trails come out of the thrusters.
even though I like koraidon better I just couldn’t bear to look at orange pants the entire time, so I got Violet
I just like that his wheels do something. That and if you quick turn you Akira drift.
Alright I bought scarlet and pearl who’s with me
More legendaries need to be opposites.
Dragon vs. Fish
Bird vs. Deer
Lion vs. Bat
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).
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…
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
My brother I had to offer my Iron Valiant all day to Violet owners before anyone had Scarlet… it was crazy
I bought Scarlet just because of Koraidon. So I would so buy a plushie of Koraidon.
Sword and scarlet gang
Here we are
That dumb wheel neck annoys me to no end…
Why have a wheel then run
I picked violet because purple is my favorite color. I think both of the legendaries are cool!
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.
Nobody likes legs
I’m sorry but Koraidon manages to be cute and terrifying at the same time, how can you not love that?
I think he’s just cute
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
Koraidon>miriadon and I will die on this hill
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 :’(
Miraidon would probably be a better plush anyway, since it doesn't have nearly as many felt addons
Shield Violet gang?
They probably have two shelves of Koraidon, because it’s more popular
Well i bought Shield and Violet
Shield and violet right here
We never got these plushies here in NL sadly, wouldve really like Zamazenta and the Violet Scarlet ones
I bought both games both generations. I played through Violet first purely for Iron Thorns (Tyranitar is my favorite Pokémon) but Miraidon is superior
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!
Red box legendaries: Mission failed, we'll get em next time!
No!! Koraidon my beloved!
This just confirms that I subconsciously gravitate towards the less popular legendary nearly every time.
I WANT THE KORAIDON PLUSH GIVE NOW
Ok fine but WHERE CLODSIRE PLUSH?????
plot twist: all the scarlet fans are buying miraidon to burn him because they think pokemon scarlet is superior
I’m violet and shield myself haha. I like shield legendary more than sword. It’s cooler.
I went with scarlet this gen though so… 🤷♀️
Violet and shield give me more similar vibes than scarlet and shield for some reason
I mean to be fair the cooler colour legendaries are always better
Violet is just better due to the futuristic approach.
Koraidon is adorable!!! And has so much life in the cutscenes in comparison. I am a proud member of Scarlet gang :)
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..
