To upgrade Koraidon and Miraidon, you will need to complete missions in the Path of Legends storyline. One of the three primary stories in Scarlet and Violet, Path of Legends involves hunting down different Titan Pokemon and battling them. When you defeat a Titan Pokemon, Koraidon/Miraidon will consume the rare Herba Mystica, granting them power. Here are the following upgrades given for defeating each Titan Pokemon

  • First Titan Pokemon - Dash
  • Second Titan Pokemon - Jump boost
  • Third Titan Pokemon - Water traversal
  • Fourth Titan Pokemon - Glide
  • Fifth Titan Pokemon - Climb surfaces

While you can battle the five Titan Pokemon in any order you like, the order that new abilities for Koraidon and Miraidon are unlocked will remain the same. It’s important to get these upgrades as they’re necessary for accessing certain areas of the map that contain rare items, characters, and Pokemon to interact with. If you want to explore the Paldea region with no restrictions, consider prioritizing the Path of Legends missions as you make your way through the game.

That’s how you can upgrade Koraidon and Miraidon in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet.
