Pokémon Scarlet and Violet’s The Indigo Disk DLC reintroduces almost every Legendary Pokémon from previous games, thanks to a suited man named Snackworth at Blueberry Academy. By completing Blueberry Quests, you can get access to treats that’ll allow you to find these old Legendaries.
Note that Snackworth doesn’t grant you access to every Legendary in the series. Some Pokémon — like Mewtwo, Dialga, and Palkia — have been made available via special Tera Raid events and therefore can’t be obtained via Snackworth. If you’re seeking out a pre-Paldea Legendary that isn’t in this guide, you’ll probably have to wait around for an event.
Below, we explain how Snackworth works, how to get Legendary candy, and where to find every Snackworth Legendary Pokémon location in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet.
How Snackworth works in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet
After the credits roll for The Indigo Disk, you’ll be told that there’s a man in a suit looking for you at the entrance to Blueberry Academy. He’s to the right, if you’re facing the gate to enter the school.
He’s a huge fan of BBQs (Blueberry quests) and will give you a treat to bring out a Legendary Pokémon depending on how many you’ve done. For every 10 solo quests you do, he’ll give you a random treat from your game’s Legendary pool (more on that below). For every single group quest you do in multiplayer, he’ll give you a random treat from a different pool of Legendary Pokémon.
To get every Legendary, you’ll need to do at least 130 solo quests and 12 group quests. While it is very easy to do this using Nintendo Switch Online, you can also do it locally with friends if you don’t have an online subscription.
Pokémon Scarlet and Violet Snackworth version ‘exclusives’
We put “exclusives” in quotes for a reason, because they’re not really version exclusive. Depending on the version of the game you have, you will have different Pokémon as rewards for solo or group quests.
Pokémon Scarlet owners will get the following Legendaries from solo quests, and Pokémon Violet owners will get them from group quests:
Pokémon Violet owners will get the following Legendaries from solo quests, and Pokémon Scarlet owners will get them from group quests:
Owners of either versions can get Articuno, Zapdos, Moltres and Kubfu from solo quests and Rayquaza, Kyurem, and Necrozma from group quests.
Here’s a handy visual infographic if you want to see the Pokémon in question:
Pokémon Scarlet and Violet Snackworth Legendary Pokémon locations
After getting the respective candy for the Legendary Pokémon, you can find them in Paldea. Snackworth will give you hints as to where to find them, but if you don’t feel like solving riddles, here they all are. We’ve put them in order by Pokédex number (and thus they’re organized by game and region as well).
Note that all of these Pokémon are shiny locked, meaning you cannot get it shiny, so don’t bother resetting your game to try.

Zapdos is at the top of the Poco Path lighthouse.
