In Pokemon Scarlet and Violet, there aren’t that many regional forms, so it’s not too hard to get every Paldean Pokemon.
Regional Pokemon have existed for a while, with Pokemon Sun & Moon introducing the concept in 2016. Players have also gotten Galarian and Hisuian forms, which first appeared in Pokemon Sword & Shield and Pokemon Legends: Arceus, respectively. In light of this, it should come as no surprise that Pokemon Scarlet and Violet also have regional variants.
As their name implies, Paldean Pokémon can only be found in the Paldea region, which serves as the setting for Pokemon Scarlet & Violet. At launch, there are only four Paldean Pokemon, three of which share the same form. Even though the other has its own distinct evolution, this is still a far cry from previous games, and fans will undoubtedly expect this to be addressed in future DLC.
The Locations of All Paldean Pokémon in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet
Paldean Tauros (Fighting-type)
The version of Paldean Tauros with the Fighting type can be found in area two of both East and West Province, as well as the area surrounding Levincia. It is typically found in herds alongside either the Fighting/Fire-type or the Fighting/Water-type Paldean Tauros.
Paldean Tauros (Combat/Fire-type).
As with the Fighting-type form, the Fighting/Fire-type form of Paldean Tauros can be found in area two of the east and west provinces and around Levincia. However, it can only be encountered in Pokemon Scarlet; players of Pokemon Violet have access to a third Paldean Tauros form.
Paldean Tauros (Combat/Water type).
A Fighting/Water-type form of Paldean Tauros can be found in the same three locations as the other two forms, so those seeking one must travel to area two of East or West Province, or the outskirts of Levincia. Just as the Fighting/Fire-type version of Paldean Tauros is exclusive to Pokemon Scarlet, the Fighting/Water-type version is exclusive to Pokemon Violet.
Paldean Wooper (types Poison and Ground)
Paldean Wooper will likely be the first Paldean Pokémon most players encounter, as it can be found throughout the southern region of Paldea, including the section of the map where players begin their journey. The Poison/Ground-type Pokémon can be found in all five regions of South Province, and is typically found near bodies of water.
Clodsire is a Poison/Ground-type Pokémon.
Clodsire is not a Paldean Pokémon, but rather the unique evolution of a regional variant, similar to Mr. Rime, Basculegion, and Overqwil. At level 20, it evolves from Paldean Wooper, or it can be found in the wild in areas five and six of South Province, or near the summit of Glaseado Mountain.
