Make sure not to use Fire types against Goodra and Lycanroc, instead go for a Ground-type Pokémon, which will be effective against both. Keep your evolved Starter Pokémon ready for her final Pokémon and save the Terastallization for it.

    Once you defeat the Elite Four and Champions in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, you win the title of a Top Champion and finally end your Victory Road Path.
