Pokemon Scarlet and Violet: Where to find Snacksworth's Legendaries
Once credits roll on Pokemon Scarlet and Violet: The Indigo Disk, you might think that the game is over. However, upon loading your save and speaking with Ms. Briar in her classroom, you will be notifed of a strange man in a blue suit looking for you at the Terarium Entrance. When you head there, on the right side of the entrance you will see the man in question — Snacksworth, a businessman who specializes in snacks for Pokemon.
When you talk to him, he will check your BBQ progress — the more Solo BBQs or Group BBQs you complete, the more snacks he will provide you with. These snacks are Key Items are spawn legendary Pokemon at specific areas all over the world, and he leaves it to you to go out and capture them.
You cannot catch all legendaries by completing Solo BBQ quests. You MUST complete Group BBQ quests in order to collect all legendaries.
Below is a list of the Legendary in question, their location hint, and their location. Keep in mind that if you do not have the corresponding snack, you will not see these Pokemon spawn at all.

Articuno's Hint: "Speaking of Articuno...I do recall this one particular encounter when I was a younger feller. See, I'd found this lovely pond up in the snowy peaks of Paldea and had decided to go for a dip, hankering for a bit of cold-water swimming...when, would you believe it! Articuno comes swooping down along the nearby waterfall and starts flying about above me, singing away! I was tickled pink, I was. Went on merrily singing with Articuno even as the sun set and the moon rose. Before I knew it, it was morning again!"
Articuno's Location: Frozen lake to the west of Montenevera.
Zapdos' Hint: "Speaking of Zapdos...I do recall this one particular encounter when I was a younger feller. I'd climbed right up to the tippy-top of one of those lighthouses you've got in Paldea, and I was taking in the view, looking over a distant city...when, would you believe it! The heavens broke wide open, and rain started pouring down on me! I thought I'd better get out of that mess in a hurry, so I turned to head down again. Then the whole sky lit up like a huge crash of lightning, and Zapdos came flying outta nowhere! It blew right by me, quick as a flash!"
Zapdos' Location: On top of the lighthouse located at Poco Path.
Moltres' Hint: "Speaking of Moltres...I do recall this one particular encounter when I was a younger fella. I was off doing a spot of rock-climbing over in western Paldea at the time. The weather was sure something else that day! Sandstorms were kicking up the whole desert — my mouth was as sandy as the ground! I was about ready to call it quits when...Moltres appeared in a blaze of glory so bright you could see it through the blowing sands! I don't know if it meant to cheer me on, but it certainly did, and I completed my climb that day."
Moltres' Location: On top of the north-most plateau in the Asado Desert. Use Miraidon/Koraidon's fly or climb abilities to reach it.
Suicune's Hint: "Speaking of Suicune...I do recall this one particular encounter when I was a younger feller. See, I spotted Suicune once, while I was out enjoying that famous lake you've got in Paldea. We ended up having a little contest of skill, seeing which one of us could get all the way to shore fastest. We were off like a shot, but that Suicune, well, it runs right over the water, now don't it? Me being just your everyday human, the best I could manage was a nice, solid backstroke. It was a fine race, though. Mighty fine. Even if that Suicune did end up beating me by a whisker."
Suicune's Location: On an island in Casseroya Lake.
Raikou's Hint: "Speaking of Raikou...I do recall this one particular encounter when I was a younger feller. Yes, there was a day me and ol' Raikou went racing up a mountain together. That Raikou, it's no slouch, that's for sure! Kept dashing past me and taking the lead. I was huffing and puffing and muttering some colorful things as I chased that wily Pokémon. But in the end, we were sitting side by side atop that peak, gazing out upon the massive and majestic desert that covers the land to the north."
Raikou's Location: Next to a lake in West Province Area One.
Entei's Hint: "Speaking of Entei...I do recall this one particular encounter when I was a younger feller. Would you believe it, I simply ran smack dab into Entei while out adventuring in Paldea! You know that stretch that's dotted with mines, and everywhere you look, there's another hole? Well, there was Entei, popping through those caves like it was having a grand ol' time! I don't like to be outshone, so I did my best to keep up with the feller. Whoo-ee, what a chase! We ended up all the way at the coast, side by side as we gazed out over the endless blue."
Entei's Location: In the work area in East Province Area 3, to the east.
Lugia's Hint: "Speaking of Lugia...I do recall this one particular encounter when I was a younger feller. I was paddling in the sea off Paldea, enjoying a leisurely backstroke through those crystal waters. But it was a real frigid stretch of sea, you understand. Didn't take long in that water before I'd started to lose all the warmth in my body! I was shaking like a leaf by the time I found an island and crawled ashore. What should appear before me but a great whirlpool heaving in the sea, and — bwoosh! Out of it comes Lugia itself! I was knocked flat on my backside in the shock of it all, so delighted I forgot I was even cold!"
Lugia's Location: On a very, very small island in the northeast, near the Unova wall.
Ho-Oh's Hint: "Speaking of Ho-Oh...I do recall this one particular encounter when I was a younger feller. Now this is a real old tale, from those long ago days when I'd just started out as a Trainer... I was down in the southwest of Paldea, near the cascading waterfalls down there. I'd been up through the night, training without rest to try to make my Pokémon stronger. Then Ho-Oh appears in the sky above me, glittering and sparkling bright as you ever saw! I'd sure like to believe that it appeared there to cheer me on when I was trying so hard."
Ho-oh's Location: On a plateau to the east of Alforneda.
Latias' Hint: "Speaking of Latias...I do recall this one particular encounter when I was a younger feller. I was off enjoying a spot of backstroke in the sea to the south of Paldea at the time. I'd been going on for a good while, so I'd come to feel a bit tuckered out and in need of a rest. Came ashore to rest on the sand in the shadow of some cliffs...when — you won't even believe it — there's Latias! Just right there before me! Our eyes met, and it gave me a jolly little smile. Then it flew off again out of sight."
Latias' Location: On a tiny beach near the river in South Province Area Four.
Latios' Hint: "Speaking of Latios...I do recall this one particular encounter when I was a younger feller. One day I ran smack dab into it, brazen as you please, while I was up in northeast Paldea, see. We couldn't speak each other's language, but I got the feeling it was telling me to follow it. So I gave chase when Latios flew off, and I ended up climbing these mighty steep cliffs. Next time I looked up, I realized I'd come to a small lake, nestled in between some jagged cliffs. It was a secret spot all right."
Latios' Location: Near Firescourge Shrine, on the east side of the lake.
Kyogre's Hint: "Speaking of Kyogre...I do recall this one particular encounter when I was a younger feller. I was on another one of my adventures around Paldea when I spotted these odd rocks in the sea. I thought to myself, "Now, Snacksworth, those've got to be those famous rocks said to bring riches!" So I figured I might as well squeeze my eyes shut real tight and make a wish on them. After a few seconds, I opened my eyes, and what should appear in front of those rocks but Kyogre! Just big and blue and brazen as you please! Now that was a shocking day, make no mistake!"
Kyogre's Location: Rocky outcrop in the ocean to the west of Groundblight Shrine.
Groudon's Hint: "Speaking of Groudon...I do recall this one particular encounter when I was a younger feller. I did spy ol' Groudon once, back in the days when I was adventuring around Paldea. You know the huge cave system under that one town? I never can remember the name... Anyway, the name don't matter, except to say that that's the place where I saw that feller! I thought to myself, "Well, if that ain't Groudon!" And I gave a big wave of my arms to say hello. What else are you supposed to do when faced with the Continent Pokémon, I ask you? So anyway, I did that. And then it showed me its huge, fearsome claws, that it did."
Groudon's Location: In the cave system below Alforneda.
Rayquaza's Hint: "Speaking of Rayquaza...I do recall this one particular encounter when I was a younger feller. I was doing a bit of mountain climbing — hauling myself up some mighty steep Paldean cliffs. When I made it up to the top — now that was the kind of sight a man lives for! I looked down over the edge into a sea of white mist, unbroken as far as the eye could see! There was something truly mystical about it all. And what came bursting right outta that dense fog but ol' Rayquaza, like a cork outta a bottle! I nearly fell back down the mountain in shock!"
Rayquaza's Location: On the mountains seperating the Great Crater of Paldea and South Province Area 3.
Virizion's Hint: "Speaking of Virizion...I do recall this one particular encounter when I was a younger feller. I tell you no lies — I simply came across Virizion resting among the trees one day while I was on one of my adventures around Paldea! And what trees they were! All done up in these mysterious patterns like I've never seen. We stayed there a good while, me and Virizion, gazing at one another atwixt those fanciful trees. But that ol' Virizion, it didn't run off. Just gave me this curious look, you know? So I sat there and told it about my adventures, and it listened with a kindly air the whole time."
Virizion's Location: Tagtree Thicket, in the northeast most corner of the area.
Cobalion's Hint: "Speaking of Cobalion...I do recall this one particular encounter when I was a younger feller. I was on one of my adventures in Paldea when Cobalion just pranced on down from a cliff. I was real flummoxed at first when it stopped right before me. Maybe it was just pausing to stare because my face looked so funny? Anyway, that ol' Cobalion started to stroll away, so I followed, and it led me to a famed waterfall. I tried to say thanks, but Cobalion just dashed off into the bamboo grove, cool as you please."
Cobalion's Location: On the plateau above the waterfall to the northwest of Firescourge Shrine.
Terrakion's Hint: "Speaking of Terrakion...I do recall this one particular encounter when I was a younger feller. It was just a regular day, and I was out doing a bit of my beloved rock-climbing, as I'm wont to do. I'd made it up quite high. When I turned around for a breath, I could just make out Cortondo in the distance, off to the south. I was simply standing there, admiring that view... when next thing I knew, Terrakion had plonked down for a sit right beside me! Perhaps it was simply at loose ends? It sat with me for a time, and we ate some snacks together."
Terrakion's Location: A plateau to the direct west of the Great Crater of Paldea.
Reshiram's Hint: "Speaking of Reshiram...I do recall this one particular encounter when I was a younger feller. See, I saw Reshiram with my own eyes, out near a town that I'd passed through in Paldea. It was a town where a lot of hardworking folk live — the type that get their hands dirty. I'd climbed up to a nice height to look out upon all their hard work, carved into the landscape. I was just remarking to myself what a fine show of effort it was, when I seemed to feel a presence behind me. And when I turned, bam! There was Reshiram, right at my shoulder! I figure it must like good ol-fashioned hard work, too."
Reshiram's Location: Plateau just south of Zapapico.
Zekrom's Hint: "Speaking of Zekrom...I do recall this one particular encounter when I was a younger feller. I'd set out from Mesagoza, thinking I would walk all the way out to Artazon from there. I was making fine progress, when this great black shadow streaks across the sky to the east. I was consumed with curiosity — that's for sure — so I climbed real high to try to catch a better look... and wouldn't you know it — there was Zekrom! I stared up at it like a country lad seeing his first city, and it came down to land right near me. We watched one another for a time. I couldn't help but bask in how magnificent Zekrom is."
Zekrom's Location: East side of South Province Area 5, on top of the giant mountain.
Kyurem's Hint: "Speaking of Kyurem, I do recall this one particular encounter when I was a younger feller. See, I was up climbing the snowy mountains when a terrible storm blew in, and I had no choice really but to hunker down in a cave underground. Don't even rightly know if I should call that place a cave. It was all soaring heights and wide passages, befuddling as any labyrinth too. I was having a grand time exploring its many nooks and crannies when this sheet of ice near me suddenly up and moved! I rubbed my eyes, not believing what I was seeing, once I realized it was no ice sheet! It was Kyurem, right there in front of me! Who would believe it, right?"
Kyurem's Location: A cave system near Dalipaza Pass in the Glasedo Mountains. See image for exact location.
Solgaleo's Hint: "Speaking of Solgaleo...I do recall this one particular encounter when I was a younger feller. I'd gone to pay Paldea's Pokemon League a little visit at that fine building they've got there. I was just admiring the structure from the outside when one of the staff noticed me and invited me in for a better look. They took me up to the observation deck, all done up with that logo of theirs. I was looking toward the academy and enjoying the view when a shadow fell across us. I kid you not, young friend, it was Solgaleo itself! It was only there a moment before it dashed right off again in a flash, so I couldn't even get in a how-do-you-do. But it was magnificent!"
Location: On top of the Paldea Pokemon League, where you fight Geeta. You do not need to enter the League, simply fly up there with Miraidon/Koraidon.
Lunala's Hint: "Speaking of Lunala...I do recall this one particular encounter when I was a younger feller. I was on a fine sandy beach in Paldea, gazing out at the sun as it set into the sea. Looking at the sun really reminds you just how small you are as one person, you know? I was getting all sentimental as I watched the light slipping away. It hadn't yet disappeared when suddenly this great crescent moon bloomed before my eyes! It was only there for an instant, so it was hard to get a good look. But I'm sure that silhouette belonged to Lunala, or my name's not Snacksworth."
Lunala's Location: North shore of the delta, west of Casseroya Lake.
Necrozma's Hint: "Speaking of Necrozma...I do recall this one particular encounter when I was a younger feller. I was sitting in the stream of one of Paldea's waterfalls, letting the pounding water cleanse my mind...when I looked up and saw Necrozma sat right up above, giving me the ugliest glare! I thought it'd be unwise of me not to stand my ground, so I squared up and roared as loud as the water! That had ol' Necrozma off like a shot. And it wasn't just Necrozma either! That shout of mine sent all the nearby Sawsbuck scattering, too, wouldn't you know it! Hahahaha!"
Necrozma's Location: East of Groundblight Shrine, on the mountain.
Kubfu's Hint: "Speaking of Kubfu...I do recall this one particular encounter when I was a younger feller. I was adventuring off in Paldea when I saw Kubfu training! I ambled right up to it and asked, "Ohoho, hard at work training, are you?" Why, the two of us got on like a house on fire! We trained together for a time, till Kubfu seemed to be itching to move on. But it left me a gift — it plucked up a haul of the bamboo sprouts that grew nearby, just for me."
Kubfu's Location: Next to the waterfall northwest of Firescourge Shrine.
Glastrier's Hint: "Speaking of Glastrier...I do recall this one particular encounter when I was a younger feller. I was off hiking among Paldea's peaks for a bit of fun, mountain climbing being a bit of a hobby. I was trekking up and up those snowy hillsides, and I figured I must have been nearly to the summit when I came across some ruins. Perhaps they'd been a house once? The walls still looked sound enough that I thought I could take shelter and have myself a little rest. I'd no sooner drawn close for a look than this Pokémon appeared, white as the driven snow! Glastrier'd been sleeping inside! When it popped its long face out, the fright nearly froze my heart!"
Glastrier's Location: Souther Glaseado Mountain, near the ruins.
Spectrier's Hint: "Speaking of Spectrier...I do recall this one particular encounter when I was a younger feller. I was off hiking among Paldea's peaks for a bit of fun, mountain climbing being a bit of a hobby. I was taking my sweet time meandering up some mountain paths dotted sparsely with trees. I came upon this old ruin on the path, covered in vines, and I thought to myself, "Now, doesn't that seem as good a place as any to take a rest?" I'd no sooner drawn close for a look than this black shadow of a Pokémon appeared! Spectrier'd been sleeping inside! It popped its long face out and scared the spirit outta me!"
Spectrier's Location: Near the ruins southwest of the Dalizapa Passage Pokemon Center.
