Pokemon Scarlet & Violet introduce several Paradox Pokemon into the mix. These are strange versions of existing Pokemon that come from different time periods. Iron Bundle is one of the few Paradox Pokemon exclusive to Pokemon Violet players. As of the time of writing, Pokemon Scarlet players can only get Iron Bundle, otherwise known as Paradox Delibird, by trading online.

Pokemon Violet players can use this guide to learn where to find Iron Bundle in the Paldea region.

Where's Iron Bundle Located?

For the final section of the Pokemon Scarlet & Violet storyline, players must go to the Zero Gate to enter Area Zero inside the Great Crater of Paldea. In this area, players will need to explore to find all the research stations, battle against powerful Paradox Pokemon, and eventually fight the game's final boss.

Iron Bundle can be found within Area Zero, and players can either attempt to catch it on their first visit to the crater or return after beating the game. Those doing the latter can open the map and fly to Zero Gate, which is just a little east of Cascarrafa, to the northwest corner of the crater.

After entering the facility, stand on the green transport pad and teleport to Research Station No. 1. In our experience, we found a couple of Iron Bundles hanging out right in front of the research station on the grass. If they don't appear, try searching the area nearby or leave and come back.

The Paradox Delibird we faced was level 56, and kept using Ice Beam, so watch out for it. It's also worth noting that Iron Bundle is an Ice/ Water-type Pokemon, so it's weak to Electric, Grass, Fighting, and Rock-type moves. Be careful not to knock it out if anyone plans on catching the metallic penguin Pokemon.

Does Iron Bundle Evolve?

Before players plan on training Delibird to evolve, it'll be good to know that it doesn't have any other form. Delibird, since being introduced in the second generation of the mainline Pokemon games, has never gotten a new evolution. Maybe in the next generation, after Scarlet and Violet, Game Freak will finally give the holiday-themed bird Pokemon some love.

Pokemon Scarlet & Violet are available for the Nintendo Switch.
