As you progress through the main story or make your way through Paldea in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet, you are bound to come up against tougher opponents. And at times, the strongest Pokemon on your team would also be outperformed. If that happens, it’s probably time for you to look towards Hyper Training. This can help your Pokemon come out even or even surpass the opponent’s total strength. Here’s all you need to know about Hyper Training in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet.
How to Hyper Train in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet
Hyper Training is a rigorous mechanism that allows you to train your Pokemon to its highest IV (Individual Value). Keep in mind that this can be done only if your Pokemon is above Level 50. To Hyper Train, you’ll need Bottle Caps. These are currencies which can be exchanged with an NPC to start the Hyper Training. You’ll need six Bottle Caps if you want to upgrade the IV of their HP, Attack, Defense, Special Attack, Special Defense and Speed. More on that later but first, we’ll show you where you can find Bottle Caps:
How to Get Bottle Caps in Pokemon SV
There are primarily four ways to get Bottle Caps in the game:
- After you earn six Gym Badges, you will be able to purchase them from the Delibird Presents in Mesagoza for 20K Poke Dollars each.
- You can find them among the items dropped after completing four-star or higher Tera Raids
- Buy them via auctions in Porto Marinada
- Reward for participating in the Academy Ace Tournament
There is another type of Bottle Cap in Pokemon SV known as Gold Bottle Caps, but these are extremely rare. They can be found at auctions in Porto Marinada but make sure to have enough money in the bank. Another alternative is finding them at the Academy Ace Tournament, which is again, a rare find.
Where to Hyper Train in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet
Once you collect the Bottle Caps, simply head towards the north of the Great Crater of Paldea. Here, in the Glaseado Mountain, you’ll find the Montenevera Pokemon Centre. You can find an NPC with a brown jacket and black sunglasses who will help you max your Pokemon’s IV. Approach him and simply exchange a Bottle Cap to raise an IV of your choice. If you have a Gold Bottle Cap, you could raise all 6 IV’s in one go. Alternatively, you can also trade 6 Bottle Caps. Once that’s done, your Pokemon’s Hyper Training will now be completed.
