How To Find & Beat The False Dragon Titan In Pokemon Scarlet Violet

Here's a detailed guide on the False Dragon Titan in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet.

The False Dragon Titan is one of the five titans you have to defeat in Scarlet and Violet. In this game, you will get Koraidon or Miraidon as a mount to travel. But their abilities will be locked. As you progress through the “Path of Legends” questline, you can unlock these abilities by defeating Titans. The False Dragon is the strongest Titan among them and finding it is a bit tricky. To help you out, in this article, we will tell you how to find and beat the False Dragon Titan in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet.

How to Find the False Dragon Titan in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet

False Dragon Titan Location in SV

The location of every Titan is marked on the map. You will find the False Dragon Titan on an island in Casseroya Lake. This is located to the North-West side of the Great Crater of Paldea. Note that you will need the Swim ability on your mount before fighting this titan. Unlike other Titans, this one won’t appear when you reach the location. Look, around for a small fish Pokemon with a “Taitaaan!” speech bubble. Interact with it and you will start the first phase of the fight.

How to Beat the False Dragon Titan

Dodonzo the False Dragon Titan

Dodonzo is a huge Water-type Pokemon. To beat this Titan, you will need a strong Electric or Grass-type Pokemon. This one has a massive HP bar with great Attack and Defense stats. We suggest you bring Pokemon around level 45 or higher to this fight as it can go on for a while. Make sure your Pokemon can take a few hits before fainting because this Titan can one-shot them. Because of its comparatively low Sp. Defense stat, special moves like Thunderbolt and Leaf Storm will be effective. Once you take down its health to Red, it will swim away and you have to find it and challenge it again.

Between the two phases, we recommend you heal your Pokemon to full health. To start the second phase of the fight, you will have to interact with the small orange Pokemon again. Once you do, Dodonzo will appear and the second phase will begin. This time, you will have Arven’s Greedent to assist you in the fight. However, with the strength of the Herba Mystica, Dodonzo will be even stronger. Use the same strategy as before and you will be able to beat this Titan. However, the fight isn’t over yet. After defeating Dodnzo, you will encounter our old friend, the small orange Pokemon. Turns out this tiny guy is the real False Dragon Titan to beat.

Tatsugiri the False Dragon Titan in Scarlet and Violet

Tatsugiri the real False Dragon Titan

Tatsugiri is a Dragon/Water dual-type Pokemon with a huge Sp. Attack stat. You can use the old Grass or Electric-type Pokemon against it. But the best way to beat the Tatsugiri the False Dragon Titan is to use a Fairy-type Pokemon. You can also use Dragon-type attacks against this Titan.

After defeating it, you will unlock the Climb ability on your mount. It’s a great ability since you can find tons of items and resources on cliffs and mountains. The entire Paldea will be explorable with this ability so fighting this Titan is a must.
