There are two types of Paradox Pokémon: those that are ancient but yet appear in the present and those that hail from the future but appear in the present. Due to their enigmatic nature these Pokémon often have unusual abilities and attributes that would not be possible under normal circumstances. They are also gender unknown.

Ancient Paradox Pokémon have the Special Ability – Protosynthesis, while Futuristic Paradox Pokémon have the Special Ability – Quark Drive.

Legendary Pokémon Koraidon and Miraidon differ from the other Paradox Pokémon in that they are ancient and futuristic relatives of Generation IX Pokémon Cyclizar. They also have different abilities to their counterparts. Koraidon has the Special Ability Orichalcum Pulse while Miraidon has Hadron Engine.
