Pokémon Scarlet & Violet Path of Legends & Titan Pokémon Guide

  • Share

Pokémon Scarlet and Violet allow trainers to create their own stories by following questlines like the Path of Legends. By completing this questline, trainers can unlock abilities for either Koraidon or Miraidon so that they can better traverse the Paldea region. Completing the entire questline requires tracking down Titan Pokémon, which are similar to those in Pokémon Legends: Arceus.


Given the open-world nature of Scarlet and Violet, trainers can explore the world as they wish. However, this can lead to trainers either missing areas of the games or attempting to initiate specific battles too early. Additionally, there is no level-scaling, so players with a team around level 20 could enter an area full of level 50 Pokemon, but they’ll almost certainly find themselves outmatched.

Starting the Path of Legends Questline

To start the Path of Legends questline, Trainers must speak to Arven at either the Naranja or Uva Academy, depending on the game version. There are a total of six separate battles that players need to win to complete the entire storyline and unlock all travel versions of Koraidon or Miraidon. Some Titans can be battled relatively early on and grant some great rewards. However, much like the gym battles, there can be significant level gaps between the Titans, and players will want to be aware of this before tackling them. Trainers will defeat the Titan, and the Pokémon will flee, consume some Herba Mystica, and then return stronger. Trainers will want to come with plenty of healing items to prepare for these two-part battles.

The Stony Cliff Titan Klawft

Based on level, the first Titan that players should battle is Klawft. The crab-like Pokémon can be found east of the academy between South Province and East Province. This Titan is a level 16 Rock type, which, upon players winning a battle, will unlock the dash availability for the game’s respective legendary. Players will want their team to be relatively close in level to Klawft before battling, with a minimum of level 15 to help guarantee victory. To have a type advantage, players should use either Grass or Water-type attacks. Those who started with Fuecoco should catch a Water or Grass-type before battling the Titan.

The Open Sky Titan Bombirdier

The second recommended Titan is Bombirdier at level 19. This Titan unlocks the surf ability and is still relatively low-level, making it an excellent early battle. The Dark/Flying-type Pokémon can be found northwest of the academy in the West Province. Trainers will want their Pokémon to be a minimum of level 18 and can benefit from having a party member that knows either Electric, Rock, Ice, or Fairy-type moves. Some good early-game options are Pawmi or Shinx. The special Flying Tera-type Pikachu received via Mystery Gift would also be a good choice for battle. While Arven will assist in this battle, players must still come prepared with party members to overcome the dual-type Titan.

The Lurking Steel Titan Orthworm

At level 28, Orthworm is the next Titan that trainers should encounter. The Steel-type Pokémon allows players to use jump after besting it in battle. Trainers want their team to be at least level 27 before heading into the action. Orthworm is located north of the academy through Area One and Two of the East Province. To trigger the battle, trainers must dash into Orthworm a few times. Fire, Fighting, and Ground-type attacks are the best options for this battle. Players who did not start with Fuecoco will want to obtain a Mudbray or Mankey to help. After this Pokémon runs away, players need to head into the tunnel created by it using Dash until it returns to start phase two of the battle.

Pokémon Scarlet’s Quaking Earth Titan Great Tusk

The next Titan to take on depends on the version of the game. For Pokémon Scarlet, trainers will encounter a level 44 Great Tusk west of the Asado Desert. The Ground and Fighting-type Pokémon will allow Koraidon or Miraidon to learn Glide. Like previous Titans, a player’s team should be no more than one level below the opposing Titan. The dual-type Titan is weak to Water, Grass, Ice, Flying, Psychic, and Fairy attacks, so players who did not choose Fuecoco should have an easy battle. Otherwise, trainers will want to approach the match with a Pokémon like Lilligant or Dachsbund.

Pokémon Violet’s Quaking Earth Titan Iron Threads

Players who acquired the Violet version of the game will encounter a level 44 Iron Threads instead of Great Tusk. This Paradox Pokémon is a Ground and Steel-type found west of the Asado Desert. Iron Threads is weak to Water, Fire, Fighting, and Ground attacks, making Skeledirge and Quaquaval great choices if they were chosen as starters. However, trainers who chose Sprigatito will find Pyroar and Golduck as fantastic assets to the challenge.

Similar to previous battles, Iron Threads will eventually run after phase one, and trainers will have to chase it down and continue hacking away at its health. Therefore, it’s essential to carry healing items to make up for the boost the Paradox Pokémon Iron Threads will receive after consuming a Herba Mystica.

The False Dragon Titan Dondozo

Found on Casseroya Lake’s right side at level 54, Water-type Dondozo will be the trainer’s next opponent. As a pure Water-type, Dondozo is weak to Grass and Electric attacks. If players did not start with a Grass-type, they’ll want to have a Pokémon like Raichu or Breloom to overcome type differences, especially if they began with Fire-type Fuecoco. Players will need to use surf to catch up to Dondozo after it swims off, and to defeat the Titan, players should continue to use Electric and Grass attacks.

Afterward, trainers will find themselves in a surprise battle with Tatsugiri. This level 55 Pokémon is a Dragon and Water-type, so along with bringing an Electric or Grass-type Pokémon, players will want to ensure they have a Pokémon that can also use Fairy attacks, such as Florges or Sylveon. After defeating both Pokémon, trainers will finally be able to use Climb.

The Final Battle With Arven

The final battle for the Path of Legends quest isn’t with a Pokémon but instead against Arven. As a final send-off, trainers will battle Arven’s team of six, which ranges from the Normal-type Greedent at level 58 to the level 63 Dark Mabostiff. Arven’s team has a few different types: Normal, Grass, Fire, Rock, Ground, Water, Ice, and Dark. His Mabostiff also has Dark as its Tera-type.

Players will want their team around level 60 and have Fighting, Flying, and Rock-type attacks and Pokémon at their disposal to deliver the most effective attacks. Players will want plenty of potions given the varied dynamic. If players have completed Victory Road and defeated Team Star, after defeating Arven, he will explain some additional storyline elements the trainer can participate in.

Trainers can choose to take on the Path of Legends at any time. However, due to the travel benefits it provides, it’s recommended to start the questline early. The Path of Legends can be completed along with the gym progression to lead to Victory Road. This way, multiple elements are leveling Pokémon, and players will not have to spend as much time grinding out levels for their team.
