All 4 Research Station Locations in Pokémon Scarlet & Violet

You've been walking forever, we know.

So, you’ve reached Area Zero and are tasked by the regional professor to come and meet them at the bottom. But to gain access to wherever they are, you first need to unlock four locks hidden in the four Research Stations in the area. Here’s how to find all of them in Pokémon Scarlet & Violet.

Best route to get to all 4 Research Stations in Pokémon Scarlet & Violet

Area Zero doesn’t have a map but it does have the rough layout of a spiral. As long as you walk down the slopes without taking any shortcuts, you’ll naturally pass by the first three Research Stations.

Where to find Research Station No. 4?

The last Research Station is at the very bottom of Area Zero, near the professor’s location. To reach it, warp to Research Station No. 3 and head towards the cave in its opposite direction.

From the entrance, turn right. The corridor isn’t obvious but it’s there. Then, again follow the spiral downwards until you reach Research Station No. 4.

Koraidon nor Miraidon will be with you until the credits roll, so you need to make sure you follow the road. If you fall or run too far from your friends, you’ll be warped to the last Research Station you visited.

Where are all the Paradox Pokémon?

Area Zero is the so-called place where Paradox Pokémon dwell. If so, then where are all the Paradox Pokémon? You won’t see them yet until you encounter Iron Bundle (the Delibird lookalike) and you won’t meet all of them until you finish the main story.
