Pokemon Scarlet and Violet were released a few days back, and players are still exploring the Paldea region. However, if you have progressed a considerable distance already, you have definitely heard of the Paradox Pokemon. Iron Hands is a Paradox Pokemon you can find in the game, and this guide will help you with the acquiring process.
Iron Hands Location in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet- How to Get?
Paradox Pokemon is a newly introduced species of Pokemon in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet. The game has two different types of Paradox Pokemon- in Pokemon Scarlet, players get Ancient Paradox Pokemon, and in Pokemon Violet, players get Future Paradox Pokemon. These are exclusive to the game you are playing. So, if you are looking for Iron Hands, you must be a Pokemon Violet player because Iron Hands is a Future Paradox Pokemon and exclusive to Pokemon Violet.
To get Iron Hands, players first need to complete the three main story paths– complete Victory Roads, Starfall Street, and Path of Legends. Once you complete these, you will get access to the Great Crater Area of Paldea, and all the Paradox Pokemon roam in this area of the map. Once you get access, go to the below location marked on the map-
That’s the Iron Gate. You’ll find the gate in front of you. Go near it, and the gate will open. Next, go to the green altar, which will activate a Research Station for you. Select Research Station 1 to catch Iron Hand.
After you reach the Research Station, leave the facility and you’ll come outside in the grassy area. Roam around the area, and you’ll find a few Iron Hands there, as it’s a common spawn. Now, you can either fight and weaken it before catching it or throw a Pokeball and catch it. Because Iron Hands is a Fighting/ Electric type Pokemon, it is weak to Ground or Fairy type Pokemon. So, use Pokemon of these types to fight Iron Hands.
That’s all you need to know about how to get Iron Hands in Pokemon Violet. Remember, Paradox Pokemon have their separate Pokedex, and these Pokemon can’t be evolved or bred.
