You can choose to visit any of the Research Stations at the gate or go down through the elevator to the starting location of Area Zero. Regardless of your choice, your goal is to run off into the canyon’s center and fly into the clouds. You want to position yourself close to the center as you fly through the air, aiming down. When you break through the clouds, you will enter an underground area full of crystals and want to keep flying down. You should see an elevated path on the right side.

Miraidon will be at the top of the elevated pathway. Diving straight through the center of the map and breaking through the clouds is the fastest way to reach this Pokémon. Unlike the other Paradox Pokémon you see, you will need to interact with Miraidon to begin the encounter. It is important to note that only Pokémon Violet players will encounter Miraidon at this location. Pokémon Scarlet players will find Koraidon instead.

Miraidon is a Dragon and Electric-type Pokémon. It will be weak against Ice, Ground, Dragon, and Fairy-type moves, but it is resistant against Fire, Water, Electric, Grass, Flying, and Steel-type moves.
