Can you catch Titan Pokemon in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet?

These Pokémon are too big to handle

While there are technical issues that plague Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, the game more than makes up for the graphical issues with the raw amount of tasks to do in the game. The game has several quests players can take including, of course, becoming a Pokémon Champion by defeating the eight gym leaders and the Elite Four. This game also introduces other important quests, like taking down the rebellious Team Star, or helping Arven beat five supersized Titan Pokémon to collect the rare Herba Mystica. But can players even catch these Titan Pokémon? Let’s take a look.

Titan Pokémon


There are five titan Pokémon in the Paldea region which are supersized versions of actual Pokémon; these gigantic Pokémon make even Gigantamax Pokémon from Pokémon Sword and Shield look small. Unfortunately, players cannot catch them; you can’t throw any Poké Balls at them and they disappear once defeated. The only thing they leave behind is the Herba Mystica players collect for the mission.  So any dreams players may have of having enormous Pokémon to battle with are pretty much dead.

At the very least, players can catch the regular versions of the Titan Pokémon. Orthworms can be found across Paldea, even in the same area as the titan version of Orthworm. Bombirdier, the Open Sky Titan, and Klawf, the Stony Cliff Titan can be found around their own areas too. The only titan Pokémon that players can’t actually find easily after beating them are the Donphan variants. Great Tusk and Iron Treads are only available in Area Zero, which can’t be accessed easily; they still can be caught, just not in their Titan form.
