Pokémon Scarlet & Violet – What is Cyclizar? Is it related to Koraidon & Miraidon?

Who is this new Pokémon?

Nintendo gave fans another look at Pokémon Scarlet and Violet at the closing ceremonies of the 2022 Pokémon World Championships. There were a few new pieces of info, and, most notably, a new Pokémon was revealed. Cyclizar was shown off in battle and the game's overworld.

Cyclizar closely resembles the two title legendaries, Miraidon and Koraidon. It shares the two's wheel-like chest and lizard-like appearance. Cyclizar was also revealed to be a ridable Pokémon, similar to the two legendaries. Nintendo revealed more about Pokémon's capabilities on Twitter.

You can use this Pokémon to traverse the game's vast open world. While it has not been confirmed, Cyclizar is likely a pre-evolution of Miraidon and Koraidon. Cyclizar could be a scenario like Pokémon Sun and Moon's Cosmog and Cosmoem, where players meet the pre-evolution at the start of their adventure and watch the Pokémon evolve into its legendary form throughout the game.

What type is Cyclizar?

Cyclizar is a Dargon and Normal-type Pokémon. This is a unique and strange pairing, though it is sure to change when the Pokémon inevitably transforms into Koraidon or Miraidon. While its typing is odd, it is still very useful in battle and sure to have some powerful Dragon-type moves.
