Pokemon Scarlet & Violet: Titan Guide [Correct Order]

Learn about the correct order of Titan Battles in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet!

Story Highlights
  • The Titan Pokemon is a new variant introduced in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet.
  • These Pokemon appear much larger than their normal form because they frequently consume "Herba Mystica".
  • In Pokemon Scarlet and Violet, you will face the following titans; Klawf, Bombirdier, Orthworm, Great Tusk/Iron Treads, Dondozo, and Tatsugiri.
  • After defeating the titans, you can feed the Herba Mystica to your mount (Koraidon or Miraidon) to increase its traversal abilities.

In the all-new Pokemon Scarlet and Violet, players will get to encounter a new variant of pokemon. The Titans are a new kind of Pokemon introduced in the game, which appears much larger than their counterparts. These pokemon are extremely rare in the Paldea region, and they have access to a very rare ingredient called ‘Herba Mystica‘. Today we will shine some light on all Titan Pokemon and their correct order in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet.

Players will face the Titan Pokemon alongside Arven in the ‘Path of Legends‘ storyline. As we mentioned earlier, these pokemon have access to the Herba Mystica. They also consume the Rare ingredient, which is why they grow exponentially in size. Once you defeat a Titan Pokemon, you will acquire the Herba Mytica, which Arven will use to make a special Sandwich.

These Sandwiches will then enhance the traversal abilities of Koraidon in Pokemon Scarlet and Miraidon in Pokemon Violet. All the Titan Pokemon will be fought twice. The first battle will be fought alone by your trainer. While in the second battle, Arven will accompany you against the Titan Pokemon.

Let us now go through each Titan Pokemon individually in the order that you will encounter them in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet.

Klawf The Stony Cliff Titan

The first Titan pokemon you will encounter during your playthrough is “Klawf“. It is also known as the Stony Cliff Titan, which can be found in the South Province Area 3. Klawf can be seen hanging at the side of the cliff, and its size is much larger than a regular Klawf in the Paldea region.

When you get close to Klawf, the battle will initiate itself after a small cutscene where the Titan pokemon will jump off the wall and onto the ground. The Stony Cliff Titan, Klawf, is a Rock-type Pokemon, and it stands at around Level 16 when you face it.

With that covered up, let us now learn a few more important things about the Titan Klawf.

Battle Strategy

The battle against Klawf titan should be pretty straightforward because of its type. Since it’s a rock pokemon you can use Water, Fighting, Grass, Ground, and Steel-type pokemon against it since their moves will be super effective. If you picked Sprigatito or Quaxly as your Starter Pokemon in Pokemon Scarlet And Violet, then you’ll be able to beat Klawf easily. 

When the battle first begins, you will face Klawf alone. After you successfully beat Klawf, it will run away from the battleground. Klawf will now be at the lower level, and you can descend down the track to find the Titan. Once you approach it again, it will break the cliff wall and consume a Herba Mystica to become stronger.

Luckily, Arven will come just in time to aid you in the second battle against Klawf. Arven will use his Level 16 Shellder. After you defeat the Titan, Arven will then take you inside the cave (revealed by Klawf after it broke the wall) to find the rare ingredient.


You and Arven will discover the Sweet Herba Mystica in the cave; along with it Arven will also give you a Titan Badge. After that, the celebrated chef will use rare ingredient to prepare a sandwich. During the long cutscene, your trainer will feed the Sweet Herba Mystica sandwich to Koraidon/Miraidon.

Doing so will grant your mount the ability to Dash in Pokemon Scarlet And Violet, making it much easier for you to travel around the Paldea region.

Bombirdier The Open Sky Titan

The next pokemon you face, as per the Titan order, in Pokemon Scarlet And Violet is the Bombirdier. You can find the Open Sky Titan in Area One of West Province. In order to reach it, you will need to scale a mountain with boulders rolling down through the track. Once you reach the top, you will see Bombirdier flying down from the sky.

The Flying Titan pokemon is about Level 20 when you face it in Pokemon Scarlet And Violet. The Bombirdier is a Flying/Dark Type Pokemon. As compared to Klawf, the Bombirdier battle is a bit more tricky to win.

With that said, let’s dive a little deeper and learn more about the Titan Bombirdier in Pokemon Scarlet And Violet.

Battle Strategy

As we mentioned earlier, the Bombirdier is a Flying-Dark-type pokemon, which means that it does not have a lot of weaknesses. Nonetheless, if you happen to have any Electric, Ice, Rock, or Fairy-type pokemon in your team, then you would be good to go.

After defeating it once in battle, you will initiate a cutscene where the Open Sky Titan will fly toward the cliff. It will then break the wall down and start eating the Herba Mystica to enhance its power and abilities. At this point, Arven will appear again and assist you in the second battle against the Titan Bombirdier.

Arven will send out his Level 19 Nacli in the battle. However, the best way to go about the Titan Battles is to not rely on Arven and instead try taking care of the Bombirdier with your own pokemon. Once you successfully defeat the Bombirdier you can then enter the cave with Arven to find the next Herba Mystica.


After defeating the Titan Bombirdier, you will receive the Bitter Herba Mystica and another Titan Badge. Arven will then cook the ingredient and convert them into yet another tasty sandwich. 

Depending on the version of the game you’re playing, your Miraidon or Koraidon will also consume the sandwich and learn to Move Across Water in Pokemon Scarlet And Violet. Your mount can also jump in the water whenever you press ‘B‘.

Orthworm The Lurking Steel Titan

As per the correct order, the next Titan pokemon in line is the Orthworm in Pokemon Scarlet And Violet. It is also known as the Lurking Steel Titan and can be found in the Deserts of East Province Area 3 in the Paldea Region. You will be able to find the Orthworm by going through one of the caves in the Desert. 

The Orthworm, a Steel-type Pokemon, can be spotted easily, thanks to its sheer size. It will be poking its head out of the ground. The Orthworm is also about Level 20. However, the game does not indicate its exact level.

Let us now review some of the more intricate details of the Orthworm Titan in Pokemon Scarlet And Violet.

Battle Strategy

We mentioned earlier that you would first spot the Orthworm with its head poking out of the ground. When you approach it, the Steel pokemon will dig into the ground and move elsewhere. You will need to repeat the process 3-4 times before the battle begins.

Since the Orthworm is a Steel-type pokemon, you can use Steel, Fire, Water, and Electric-type pokemon against it. It is worth mentioning that the Orthworm Titan has the “Earth Eater” ability, which makes it immune to Ground-moves. Not only that, if you use ground attacks against the Lurking Steel Titan, it will increase its HP.

All of these things make the battle one of the toughest ones, especially after facing somewhat easy challenges against Klawf and Bombirdier. Nonetheless, after you beat the Orthworm once, Arven will tag along and help you out for the remainder of the battle. Of course, at this point, Orthworm would have consumed the Herba Mystrica allowing it to be a lot stronger.

Arven will use his Level 28 Toedscool during the battle against Orthworm titan in Pokemon Scarlet And Violet. Once you manage to defeat the Titan, you and Arven will then enter the cave to find the Herba Mystica.


After defeating Orthowrm, the Lurking Steel Titan, in the ‘Path of Legends‘ storyline, you will receive a Titan Badge and the Salty Herba Mystica. Arven will then cook another sandwich, using the Salty Herba Mystica this time.

Your mount (Miraidon or Koraidon) will also consume the Salty Mystica Herb during the cutscene. After which, it will get the ability to Jump higher in Pokemon Scarlet And Violet.

The Quaking Earth Titan

The Quaking Earth Titan is the fourth Titan pokemon in Pokemon Scarlet And Violet. However, the pokemon itself will vary according to the version of the game you’re playing. If you’re playing Pokemon Scarlet, then you will face Great Tusk (Level 45). Whereas, if you’re playing Pokemon Violet, then you will battle it out against the Iron Treads (Level 45).

Great Tusk and Iron Treads are two different pokemon in the Pokedex. Both pokemon are primarily Ground-type. However, their secondary types vary. The Great Tusk’s secondary type is; Fighting, while the Iron Treads is also a Steel-type pokemon. Hence, you will need to properly understand their types before strategizing the fight against them.

You can find the Quaking Earth Titans in the Asado Desert. Both Titan variants will be seen rolling around the sand. With that said, let’s now dive into a bit more detail.

Battle Strategy

You can spot the Great Tusk and Iron Treads from afar because they can be seen rolling around on the sand. And of course, their huge size makes them quite hard to miss. Once you approach them, the battle will commence itself. We have listed down the weaknesses of both pokemon to make things easier for you.

The Great Tusk is weak against Flying, Grass, Water, Fairy, and Psychic-type pokemon. On the other hand, Iron Treads is weak against Water, Fire, Ground, and Fighting-type pokemon. Hence, depending on the version of the game you’re playing (Scarlet or Violet) make sure to set up your team beforehand.

You need to fight Great Tusk/Iron Treads with a lot of caution since their attacks are highly-damaging and effective against many kinds of pokemon. Nonetheless, when you manage to beat the Quaking Earth Titan, it will roll away from the battlefield and go to the side of a huge boulder. At this point, you can revive your fainted pokemon and replenish the HP of the damaged ones by using potions.

Arven will then appear during a cutscene and assist you in the next part of the battle against the Quaking Earth Titan. Arven will make use of Scovillain (Level 44). Be wary of the second part of the battle because the Great Tusk/Iron Treads will be a bit stronger after consuming the Herba Mystica.


After beating the Great Tusk/Iron Treads in Pokemon Scarlet And Violet, you will earn a Titan Badge and the Sour Herba Mystica, which will then show you the same cutscene where Arven cooks a sandwich using the rare ingredient.

You can then share your sandwich with Miraidon/Koraidon to enhance its ability in Pokemon Scarlet And Violet. By consuming the Sour Herba Mystica, your mount in Pokemon Scarlet And Violet will be able to Glide while in the air.

The False Dragon Titan

The False Dragon Titan is the final titan boss in Pokemon Scarlet And Violet. However, for this titan battle, you will face Dondozo and Tatsugiri, respectively, to claim the Titan badge and the Herba Mystica. You can find the False Dragon Titan in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet at Casseroya Lake on a lone island. The Island will be filled with a lot of Tatsugiri pokemon.

However, one of them will appear bigger than the others. It won’t be as big as a Titan, just a tad bit more than the rest. Once you approach it, your battle with Dondozo will begin. After beating Dondozo you will face Tatsugiri. Both are believed to be around Levels 57-60. 

Dondozo is a Water-type pokemon, hence named the False Dragon Titan. On the other hand, Tatsugiri is a Water/Dragon-type pokemon. Therefore, before heading into battle with the Titans, make sure to set up your team accordingly. With that said, let’s now look at some of the details of both Pokemon.

Battle Strategy

Once you approach the larger-sized Tatsugiri, the Titan Dondoza will shoot out of the water and eat the Tatsugiri up. Right at that instance, your solo battle against the final titan will commence. Since Dondozo is a pure Water-type pokemon, therefore, try using a Grass or Electric-type pokemon

If you started your game with Sprigatito then you’d have Meowscarada by now. Meowscarada is a Grass/Dark-type pokemon, which would work perfectly against Dondozo. You can also use Quaquaval (Water-type) if you started your journey with Quaxly in Pokemon Scarlet And Violet.

Once you beat Dondozo, it will swim away from the small island. You can then ride around the lake until you find Tatsugiri floating in the water facing a cliff. When you go near it, the Dondozo will appear again and break the cliff wall to eat the Herba Mystica. Arven will then reach the location and help you out in the next battle against Dondoza, the False Dragon Titan.

In the battle, Arven will use a Level 55 Greedent. After beating Dondozo the second time, you will then face Tatsugiri in battle. It is to be noted that since Tatsugiri is a Water/Dragon type pokemon, only Dragon and Fairy-type moves will be super effective against it. This means the battle will be quite tough despite the small size of the final titan.


After defeating Dondozo and Tatsugiri you will receive the final Titan Badge along with the Spicy Herba Mystica. Arven will then instantly start cooking and make a sandwich out of the rare ingredient in Pokemon Scarlet And Violet.

You can feed the Spicy Herba Mystica sandwich to your mount (Miraidon or Koraidon). Doing so will grant it the ability to Climb up any vertical surface in the Paldea region.

Final Battle Against Arven

After defeating all the Titan Pokemon, you will be able to face Arven in a Pokemon battle. Right after you bring down Dondozo and Tatsugiri, you can make your way to the Poco Path Lighthouse. Arven will be waiting for you outside the Lighthouse with Mabosstiff.

Be wary of the battle since his Pokemon team will stand around Level 60. Hence, if you’re team isn’t ready enough, then take your time to gain some EXP for your pokemon and level them up before facing Arven in Pokemon Scarlet And Violet.

Here is the team Arven uses during the final battle after taking down all the Titans in the correct order in Pokemon Scarlet And Violet.

  • Greedent – Level 58  (Normal Type)
  • Cloyster – Level 59  (Water/Ice Type)
  • Scovillain – Level 60  (Grass/Fire Type)
  • Toedscruel – Level 61 (Ground/Grass Type)
  • Garganacl – Level 62 (Rock Type)
  • Mabosstiff – Level 63 (Dark Type)

You can form your team accordingly, make sure to include weaknesses for each type of pokemon Arven uses.
