ONE of the three trials you face in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet is the Titan Pokémon.
Much like the Sun and Moon totem-type Pokemon or the Dynamax mechanic in Sword and Shield, Titan-type Pokemon are huge, powerful versions of Mons.
There are five of these to find and do, so figuring out which one to take on first can be daunting.
We’re going to break down all five Titans into Pokémon Scarlet and Violet so you know what you have in store.
Pokémon Scarlet & Violet: Klawf, the Stonecliff Titan
Klawf is the lowest level titan and probably the first one you’ll want to challenge.
Despite being a crab, it’s a pure rock dude, making it easy on Quaxly and Sprigatito trainers.
However, there are plenty of Water and Grass-type Pokemon to choose from in the early game, even if you’ve chosen Fuecoco.
Pokémon Scarlet & Violet: Bombardier, the Open Sky Titan
Bombbirdier is a big step up from Klawf; It has impressive offensive stats that can quickly weaken your team.
It’s Flying/Dark type, so Psychic and Fighting type mons are useless here.
Instead, try using a variety of Rock, Ice, or Electric-type attacks.
Luckily you should have Klawf after the first fight. Pawmi is another Pokemon you can use from the early game, but be warned that it evolves into a fighting type.
Pokémon Scarlet & Violet: Orthworm, the lurking Titan of Steel
Despite looking like a wormy fellow, Orthworm is actually an all-steel type and can be a bit tricky to handle.
Combat, ground, and fire attacks all work here, but choose special attacks instead of physical attacks since it has a whopping 145 base defense.
It’s not super fast, but it could still outperform the super slow Fuecoco line.
Pokémon Scarlet and Violet: Great Tusk/Iron Treads, the Titan of the Earthquake
This depends on which version you have selected. Great Tusk is Scarlet and Iron Treads is Purple.
Both are Boden type, but Great Tusk shares this with Fighting and Iron Treads with Steel.
Purple players should have a strong steel counter after their encounter with Orthworm, and both have a special weakness.
Flying-type Pokémon give Scarlet players the dual benefit of being strong against fighting and also immune to ground.
Pokémon Scarlet & Violet: Dodonzo and Tatsugiri, the Fake Dragon Titan
This challenge forces you to face two Pokemon in a row, making it one of the trickier fights.
Dodonzo is a Water-type with massive physical defenses, which in turn forces you to use special moves.
Tatsugiri is stronger than it looks, with a huge Special Attack stat that requires high Special Defense.
Azumarill is a good choice because of its strong defense and fairy attacks that work against this water/dragon type.
