The recommended Pokemon Scarlet Titan order.

The Stony Cliff Titan – Klawf

Klawf from Pokemon Scarlet, standing near a cliff.
The first Titan you should battle is the Rock-type Klawf.
  • Type: Rock
  • Ability: Shell Armor or Anger Shell
  • Hidden Ability: Regenerator
  • Recommended Level: 15-20

Klawf is a giant land crab that loves to stick to cliffs and wait for prey. It’s the first Titan that you should battle if you want a smooth linear progression through the game.

This Titan is a Rock-type Pokemon that should be battled with Pokemon that are at least Level 15 or above. Additionally, you can get the upper hand in the battle by including its weakness types in your party.


  • Found in South Province (Area Three), along the road leading from Mesagoza to Artazon. Arven will call you once you’re on the right path. Look for Klawf attached to the cliff in this area.


  • Super-effective against: Water, Fighting, Grass, Steel, Ground types
  • Not very effective against: Fire, Normal, Poison, Flying types
  • Normal effectiveness against: Electric, Ice, Psychic, Bug, Rock, Ghost, Dragon, Dark, Fairy types
  • No effect on: None


  • Stockpile Water, Steel, Ground, Grass, or Fighting-type Pokémon for an advantage.
  • Avoid using Normal, Poison, or Flying-type Pokémon against Klawf.
  • Consider using X Defense items for added durability during the battle.


  • Defeating Klawf unlocks access to a cave containing Herba Mystica, a key ingredient for making sandwiches that unlock the “Dash” ability for your Koraidon.

The Open Sky Titan – Bombirdier

Take on Bombirdier next, the Flying/Dark-type Titan.
  • Type: Flying/Dark
  • Ability: Keen Eye or Big Pecks
  • Hidden Ability: Rocky Payload
  • Recommended Level: 23-27

The second Titan in the Pokemon Scarlet Titan order is Bombirdier. Bombirdier is a large white stork-like Pokemon that can be tackled after you’re done defeating Klawf. This is a dual-type Flying and Dark Pokemon. Hence, you’ll need to know exactly what its weaknesses are and how to defeat the Titan.

It has the ability Big Pecks, which prevents its Defense from getting lowered by other Pokemon. Additionally, there’s the hidden ability Rocky Payload which grants a 50% boost to the Rock-type moves of the user.


 Found northwest of Cortondo or southwest from Cascarrafa. The closest Pokémon Center is WPA1 Central. Head north from the wind turbines, and Arven will notify you when you’re close to the Titan, located on a mountain with boulders.


  • Super-effective: Electric, Rock, Ice, Fairy
  • Not very effective: Grass, Ghost, Dark
  • Normal: Fighting, Bug, Normal, Fire, Water, Poison, Flying, Dragon, Steel
  • No effect: Ground, Psychic

Battle Strategy:

  • Use Pokémon with Electric, Fairy, Ice, and Rock-type moves, such as Pawmo and Quaxwell.
  • Avoid Grass, Dark, and Ghost-type Pokémon and attacks. Keep Spirigatito in the back of your party.
  • Ground and Psychic-type attacks are ineffective against Bombirdier.
  • After defeating Bombirdier for the first time, it will retreat, and you’ll need to battle it again with Arven and his Nacli by your side.


  • Upon defeating Bombirdier, you’ll receive a Herba Mystica.
  • Herba Mystica unlocks the “Swim” ability for your legendary mount, allowing safe travel through large bodies of water.

The Lurking Steel Titan – Orthworm

Battle the Steel-type Orthworm with Pokemon of levels 30-35.
  • Type: Steel
  • Ability: Earth Eater
  • Hidden Ability: Sand Veil
  • Recommended Level: 30-35

Orthworm is the next Titan that you should take down. This six-segmented metal worm can be easily taken down if you have the right type of Pokemon.

It has the ability Earth Eater, which is its signature ability. This ability lets Orthworm restore 25% of its maximum HP when hit by Ground-type moves. Additionally, Ground-type moves do not affect Orthworm.

Moreover, Orthworm has the Hidden Ability Sand Veil. Through this, during a sandstorm, the accuracy of all moves used against Orthworm will be multiplied by 4/5. And that’s not all. Orthworm doesn’t take damage from sandstorms.


  • Orthworm can be found northwest of Levincia or east of Zapapico, in East Province. Look for it on the road connecting the two cities, halfway through the route.


  • Super-effective against: Fire, Fighting types
  • Not very effective against: Normal, Ice, Flying, Grass, Psychic, Rock, Bug, Steel, Dragon, Fairy types
  • Normal effectiveness against: Dark, Water, Electric, Ghost types
  • No effect on: Poison types


  • Use Fire and Fighting-type Pokemon or moves for maximum effectiveness against Orthworm.
  • Avoid Ground and Poison-type moves, as they will deal no damage to Orthworm due to its Earth Eater ability.
  • Be cautious with Sandstorm, as it won’t affect Orthworm, and Sand Veil will increase its evasion during a sandstorm.


  • Defeating Orthworm rewards you with Herba Mystica, unlocking the “High Jump” ability for your Koraidon.

The Quaking Earth Titan – Great Tusk

Great Tusk from Pokemon Scarlet standing in a desert.
You can find the Ground/Fighting-type Great Tusk in the desert.
  • Type: Ground/Fighting
  • Ability: Protosynthesis
  • Hidden Ability: None
  • Recommended Level: 45-50

The 4th Titan that you should battle is Great Tusk. This is a dual Ground/Fighting-type Paradox Pokemon that resembles an ancient ancestor of Donphan. This is the only Titan that is version-exclusive (in Pokemon Violet, it’s replaced by Iron Treads).

Great Tusk has the ability Protosynthesis. This is the signature ability of all Paradox Pokemon. It boosts the highest stat of the Pokemon (apart from HP) when in harsh sunlight. This also works when holding Booster Energy.


 Great Tusk can be found in the desert, located in the western area. To access the desert, head west from the Pokemon Center near the north of Cascarrafa or south from the Pokemon Center in Porto Marinada. Alternatively, you can reach the desert by diving from the cliff in West Province and jumping into the desert. Arven will notify you when you’re close to the Titan.


  • Super-effective: Water, Grass, Ice, Flying, Psychic, Fairy
  • Not very effective: Poison, Rock, Bug, Dark
  • Normal: Fire, Normal, Fighting, Ground, Steel, Ghost, Dragon
  • No effect: Electric

Battle Strategy:

  • Utilize Water and Grass-type moves against Great Tusk.
  • Pokémon like Spirigatito and Quaxly are effective choices.
  • Avoid using Poison, Bug, Dark, and Rock-type Pokémon, especially Rock-types due to the double disadvantage.
  • Electric-type moves are ineffective against Great Tusk due to its Ground typing.
  • After first defeat, Great Tusk retreats, consumes an herb, and returns for another battle.
  • Arven assists with a Scovillain, a dual Grass/Fire-type Pokémon with a type advantage over Great Tusk, during the second battle.


  • Defeating Great Tusk will reward you with a Herba Mustica, allowing you to acquire the Travel Ability “Glide.”

The False Dragon Titan – Dondozo and Tatsugiri

Challenge the False Dragon Titan Dondozo in Casseroya Lake.
  • Type: Water
  • Ability: Unaware or Oblivious
  • Hidden Ability: Water Veil
  • Recommended Level: 55-60

The last and most powerful Titan that you should battle is Dondozo. Named the “False Dragon Titan”, this Pokemon resembles an ancient fish with a blue color scheme. It’s a pure Water-type Pokemon that is best countered by Electric and Grass-type attacks.

Additionally, this Pokemon has the Unaware ability. The ability allows it to ignore all of the target Pokemon’s stat alterations if it has made any. And that’s not all. There’s also the Water Veil Hidden Ability, which prevents burns.


 To find Dondozo, you must first defeat at least two Titans to acquire the Travel Ability Swim. Then, head north from Medali to Casseroya Lake. Utilize the Swim ability to navigate through the lake, and you’ll find Dondozo at the center. Arven will notify you when you’re close to the Titan.


  • Super-effective: Grass, Electric
  • Not very effective: Fire, Water, Steel, Ice
  • Normal: Poison, Fighting, Flying, Psychic, Ghost, Dragon, Fairy, Ground, Normal, Bug, Rock, Dark
  • No effect: None

Battle Strategy:

  • Exploit Dondozo’s weaknesses with Grass and Electric-type moves.
  • Pokémon like Quaxly or Pawmo with these move types are effective choices.
  • Avoid using Fire, Water, Steel, and Ice-type Pokémon as they’re less effective against Dondozo.
  • Other types deal neutral damage to Dondozo.
  • After first defeat, Dondozo retreats into cave and returns for another battle.
  • Arven assists with his Greedent, a Normal-type Pokémon, during the second battle.

Defeating Dondozo will be your greatest challenge yet, but with the right strategy and Pokémon, victory is within reach.


Tatsugiri from Pokemon Scarlet challenging the player.
After you defeat Dondozo, Tatsugiri will challenge you.
  • Type: Dragon/Water
  • Ability: Commander
  • Hidden Ability: Storm Drain
  • Recommended Level: 55-60

Once you take down Dondozo for the second time, you will need to battle the small orange fish that you talked to before. The fish is the Pokemon Tatsugiri and has a dual Dragon/Water typing. This is the last Titan you should battle in the Pokemon Scarlet Titan order.

It has the ability Commander, which lets it control Dondozo by sitting in its mouth. Its Hidden Ability is Storm Drain. This ability allows it to draw in all Water-type attacks and become immune to them. Additionally, each Water-type attack increases the Tatsugiri’s Special Attack.

Tatsugiri Weaknesses

  • Super-effective: Dragon, Fairy
  • Not very effective: Fire, Water, Steel
  • Normal: Poison, Fighting, Flying, Psychic, Ghost, Ground, Normal, Bug, Rock, Dark, Electric, Grass, Ice
  • No effect: None

You can beat Tatsugiri with ease if you have a Dragon or Fairy-type Pokemon in your party. Unfortunately, these two are the only types that work best against Tatsugiri.

Avoid using Steel, Water, and Fire-type Pokemon. You should especially leave behind your Quaxly and its evolutionary stages. Water-type moves will only help Tatsugiri boost its Special Attack.

Dondozo and Tatsugiri Rewards

If you successfully defeat Dondozo and then Tatsugiri, you will receive a Herba Mystica. This herb will unlock a new Travel Ability for your Koraidon: the ability “Climb”.

Final Thoughts

Pokemon Scarlet has introduced a new game mechanic in which you can complete the story in any order you like. Additionally, it introduces giant Pokemon called Titans. You must battle them to complete the entire storyline.

However, although you can complete the story in any fashion you like, you should follow the order we mentioned. To conclude, you should first defeat Klawf and then Bombirdier. Then, defeat Orthworm followed by Great Tusk. Finally, take down Dondozo and Tatsugiri together.

We hope you now know all about the Pokemon Scarlet Titan order and how you should complete the storyline.
