POKÉMON Scarlet and Violet are completely open world, which means you can take on all of their 18 challenges in any order.
However, between the Arena battles, the Titans, and the Team Star bases with their varying levels, it can be difficult to know which to take on first.
We recommend doing a mix of these to keep the game challenging yet doable.
So we recommend taking on Pokémon Scarlet and Violet so you never feel underwhelmed.
Pokémon Scarlet & Violet: Cortondo Gym
Unlike all other Pokémon games, in Scarlet and Violet even Pokémon you catch yourself will become disobedient if you don’t have enough Badges.
The Cortondo Gym has the dual benefit of completing its simple bug-type challenge and making stronger Pokemon obey you.
Pokémon Scarlet & Violet: Klawf, the Stonecliff Titan
In addition to being the easiest Titan to defeat, Klawf also offers strong early game physical attack and defense.
It’s also a pure rock type that can be helpful in a number of challenges.
Pokémon Scarlet & Violet: Artazon Gym
The Artazon Gym should be the next step in your journey as it allows your Pokémon to level up for future challenges.
Brassius is the Grass-type leader and shouldn’t be too difficult with his numerous weaknesses.
Pokémon Scarlet & Violet: Bombardier, the Open Sky Titan
This is another powerful single-stage Pokemon useful in the early game.
If you still have Klawf on your team, his rock moves and physical defense will make this easy.
Pokemon Scarlet & Violet: Giacomo from Segin Squad
Start your journey with Giacomo to defeat Team Star and you should have an easy time.
He’s a Dark-type trainer, so you should have plenty of Fighting or Bug-type attacks to choose from.
Pokémon Scarlet & Violet: Levincia Gym
Iono is an Electro-type trainer, and her ace, Bellibolt, is a strong special attacker with massive defense.
Make sure you have some extra defensive Mons on your team to weather the storm.
Pokémon Scarlet & Violet: Mela from Schedar Squad
Mela’s levels are much higher than Giacomo’s, but luckily she’s a Fire-type trainer with a number of common weaknesses.
Torkoal in particular is weak to special attacks, so remember that Quaxly is a physical attacker.
Pokémon Scarlet & Violet: Orthworm, the lurking Titan of Steel
Orthworm’s big weakness is its Special Defense, so go off with some strong Fire-type Special Moves and it should be easy.
If you’ve picked Fuecoco, you’ll come away with his powerful signature draw.
Pokémon Scarlet & Violet: Cascarrafa Gym
Kofu is a Water-type leader, and these Pokémon are known for their bulk.
However, Sprigatito starters will have an easy time here with its powerful physical attack.
Pokemon Scarlet & Violet: Atticus from Navi Squad
Atticus is a Venom trainer and his starmobile ejects venom spikes with each hit.
Bring in Pokemon that are immune to it, like Steel or Poison-types, to keep yourself alive.
Pokémon Scarlet and Violet: Medali Gym
Ghost-types are immune to Larry’s mostly normal attacks, and Paldea is riddled with this type of Pokemon.
His levels can be intimidating, but that makes him easy enough to defeat.
Pokémon Scarlet & Violet: Montenevera Gym
Their starter should now be fully evolved, giving two of them a strong advantage in the Ghost-type Gym.
Many of their Pokémon are pure ghosts, so only Dark-type moves are effective.
Pokémon Scarlet & Violet: Great Tusk/Iron Treads, the titan of the shaking earth
The Titan you face here depends on your version. Scarlet has a Ground/Fighting matchup and Violet has Ground/Steel.
Both have strong defenses, so special attacks work here, and a flying Pokémon helps against strong ground attacks.
Pokémon Scarlet & Violet: Alfornada Gym
Tulip is the Psychic-type Gym leader, so again two of the last starter evolutions will be strong here.
There are also many ghosts about Paldea, so you can pick one up to finish them off.
Pokémon Scarlet & Violet: Glaseado Gym
Complete your fitness challenge with Grusha and his Ice-type glass cannon team.
This gives you the ability to catch and use Pokemon of any level, making the endgame a little bit easier.
Pokémon Scarlet & Violet: Ortega from Ruchbah Squad
There are still a few Star Bases and Titans to dismantle after completing the Gyms, but you should now have the levels to pull it off.
Ortega leads Azumarill, giving you a number of options to line up a Pokemon that can sweep.
Pokémon Scarlet & Violet: Tatsugiri and Dodonzo, the Fake Dragon Titan
The last of the Titans is a double feature, Dodonzo is a Water-type with strong physical defenses, and Tatsugiri is a Dragon/Water-type with strong special attacks.
A bulky special attacker will suffice here, although Electric-types aren’t known for their bulk.
Pokemon Scarlet & Violet: Eri from Caph Squad
The final stop on your journey should be the combat-type teamstar leader Eri.
Her levels are very high, but now that you don’t have a level cap you should be able to bring them down.
