How to Get The Raikou Treat in Scarlet & Violet

To get Raikou in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet: The Indigo Disk DLC, you will need to get the Raikou Treat from an NPC named Snacksworth. Snacksworth will only spawn after you have completed the Indigo Disk DLC. You will find him at the entrance of Blueberry Academy. Talk to him to get a clue regarding the location of Raikou.

You will only get one clue for every ten BBQ quests that you complete. Also, it is completely random on which of the 25 Legendary Pokemon you will get the clue for. So, keep completing BBQ quests until you get the Raikou Treat from Snacksworth.

Where to Find Raikou in Scarlet & Violet

After you have the treat for Raikou, head to the Paldea region and go to the northwest of West Province Area One. It is also to the east of the Icerend Shrine. You will spot Raikou at the side of the slope at the marked location.

Save the game before you interact with Raikou, as you will only get one chance to catch the monster. If you fail to catch him the first time, you will have your save file as a backup option.

Raikou is a Level 70 Pokemon that is both fast and powerful. It will be difficult to win the battle against Raikou until you bring a powerful Pokemon with you. You can also use a Quick Ball to try your luck with Raikou and capture it on your first try, but you should try to chip some of its health away before you try to capture it.

And that’s all you need to know on how to get Raikou in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet. If you are on a mission to catch all of the Pokemon in the game, take a look at the rewards you will get for completing the Indigo Disk Pokedex.
