New Paradox Pokemon and Evolutions Revealed for Scarlet & Violet DLC!

A new trailer was just revealed for The Hidden Treasure of Area Zero during today’s Pokemon Direct!

Two new new Paradox Pokemon were revealed named Raging Bolt, based on Raikou, and Iron Crown, based on Cobalion.

Applin will receive a new “candy apple” evolution named Dipplin while Duraludon will get a new evolution named Archaludon.

While not confirmed, Ogerpon appears to have some sort of new form — or maybe it’s just glowing.

One wonders if the future Archaludon ex will be a meta card, it'd be Duraludon's world and we're just living in it.

That Raikou is an abomination.
Makes me really worried about what pre-historic creature ends up being thrown together with Entei. I'm thinking woolly mammoth with tusks replacing entei's moustache. Or a triceratops.

I kinda like the Raikou. I’m interested to see what the inevitable dinosaur Entei is gonna be turned into
I like Cobalion more than I expected to
The new apple is pretty cute
Kinda liking Duraludon’s evo. Is it just me or does it look the back of its head and tail look like a stapler or something stationery related?

People always forget that this is not Raikou. Neither of the Paradox is “another form” of said Pokemon, it’s just based on the design to fuel the lore of the games and make us buy the stuff.

Wow! Duraludon and Applin getting an extra evolution is interesting, especially as this confirms that Applin is now the Tyrogue of Generation VIII.
