Pokémon Scarlet & Violet

Violet Paradox Pokémon Iron Moth

Seren Morgan-Roberts

This page offers a guide on how to find and catch the Violet Paradox Pokémon Iron Moth in Pokémon Violet.

!Iron Moth is a Violet Paradox Pokémon.

What is Iron Moth?

Iron Moth is a Violet exclusive Paradox Pokémon found in Area Zero. Paradox Pokémon are Pokémon that are exclusive to the Pokémon Scarlet and Violet game. They resemble pre-existing Pokémon but have different move sets and types. Scarlet Paradox Pokémon are Ancient whilst Violet’s are futuristic.

You will only be able to capture Paradox Pokémon once you’ve got access to Area Zero - the crater at the center of the Paldea Region. You’ll have access to this area once you’ve completed the three story paths:

Once you’ve finished the story quest in Area Zero, you’ll also be able to return at any time by fast travelling to the Zero Gate.

How to Find & Catch Iron Moth

Iron Moths are reasonably common and can be found in the open parts of the Area Zero crater. You should be able to find at least one hanging around Research Station No. 1 at around Level 53. Sometimes Paradox Pokémon can be a bit stubborn so we like to use "Ultra Ball" iconUltra Balls to make extra sure we catch them!

If you don’t initially find one near the first station, if you travel further down you should find a couple dotted along the semi-linear path that heads towards the second Research Station. You’ll typically find them near other Moth Pokémon so keep an eye out!

!Iron Moth likes to hang out with other moths.
