A bug in Pokémon Scarlet & Purple has the ability to make Koraidon and Miraidon invisible when in their mount form.
Pokémon Scarlet & Purple are well known for their bugs, especially those that occur while exploring. The Paldea region sometimes feels like it’s held together with duct tape, as it’s easy to go out of bounds or cause strange events with wild Pokémon.
The various bugs in Pokémon Scarlet & Purple can be distracting, but they generally won’t affect your game. It’s more the performance issues that take you out of the experience, with bugs being much less common than slowdowns or sudden appearances.
A new patch was released for Pokémon Scarlet & Purple, but it mostly focused on issues introduced in the DLC. There are still plenty of glitches in the game, as revealed by a hilarious new bug that makes mounts invisible.

A user on the Pokémon Scarlet & Purple Reddit uploaded a video of another Pokémon Scarlet & Purple bug. This time it was a bug that caused Miraidon to become invisible while riding it, making it appear as if the main character was flying through the air.
It didn’t take long for other users in the thread to compare the visual to a certain maniacal amphibian from the dark days of the internet. “Run the Axel F,” one user wrote, while another uttered the sacrilegious words “Ding ding.”
It seems to be a common problem with the game. “This happened to me a long time ago (before the DLC was announced), it happened after I drowned because Miraidon got stuck under the “water,” one user said, while another wrote, “My game does it all the time too.”
The mount mechanics in Pokémon Scarlet & Violet are the source of many issues, especially when it comes to clips or eternal falls. There are also ride bugs that stretch the main character’s limbs in horrifying ways, making the game look like a Junji Ito creation.
The 9th generation games have been out for over a year, and fans are starting to accept that many of these flaws won’t be fixed. This could be a result of hardware issues, and the legendary Nintendo Switch successor could fix it all, but no one is holding their breath.
