Pokémon Scarlet and Violet: Every Paradox Pokémon of Area Zero, ancient and future forms
We take a look at every Pokémon of the Past and the Future, or Paradox Pokémon, that you can catch in Area Zero after finishing Scarlet and Violet.
Warning: the following article contains spoilers of the post-game.
Asides from the new Paldea regional forms, Pokémon Scarlet and Violet include new versions of some of the classic creatures from the franchise. These new alternate forms are called Ancient Pokémon and Future Pokémon, which together are known as Paradox Pokémon. They can only be obtained after finishing the main story of the game.
Once you’re done with the main plot of Pokémon Scarlet and Violet you’ll unlock Area Zero, an entire section of the map designed to act as an endgame area in which these Paradox Pokemon roam. There’s a total of 14 of these, with 7 being exclusive to each version of the game, so you’ll have to either trade with other players or join a friend in the opposite version you have through co-op.
