Pokemon Scarlet and Violet: How to find the False Dragon Titan?

Pokemon Scarlet and Pokemon Violet features Titan Pokemon – gigantic Pokemon that guard the Herba Mystica, which are rare ingredients that instantly restore your health.

You battle Titan Pokemon as part of the Path of Legends storyline, where you have to find and defeat 5 Titan Pokemon to earn 5 different Herba Mystica and Badges.

The False Dragon Titan is the fifth and final Titan you encounter and it consists of not 1, but 2 Pokemon, called Tatsugiri and Dondozo, who, as Arven says, both make up the Dragon Titan.

The False Dragon Titan can be found in the Casseroya Lake but getting to it can be a bit tricky. This guide will tell you exactly what you need to know about how to find it/them, and also, how to beat them.

How to find the False Dragon Titan

To find the False Dragon Titan in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet, go to the tiny island in the upper left corner of the Paldean map. It is on the east of a larger island, on the right side of Casseroya Lake. At the island’s southern tip, find the orange fish saying, “Taitaaan!”

I recommend following north from Medali and then using either Koraidon or Miraidon’s Surf ability (unlocked by defeating the Open Sky Titan in Area One) to swim to the small island, closest to the big island where it shows there should be a Titan.

The island has a bunch of Tatsugiri washed up on the banks, screaming a bunch of random things.

At the bottom of the island, there will be one orange Tatsugiri slightly bigger than the rest, literally saying the phrase, “Taitaaan!” Interact with this guy to trigger the battle with the False Dragon Titan.

How to defeat the False Dragon Titan

There are 3 phases you will have to complete to defeat the False Dragon Titan and win your Dragon badge and the Herba Mystica. The first 2 battles are against Dondozo, and the third against Tatsugiri.

Dondozo and Tatsugiri work together to bait their prey and together make up the Dragon Titan. Tatsugiri fools the prey by playing dead and then Dondozo comes to attack. But as you’ll see later, it’s actually Tatsugiri who’s tougher to take down.

1. Preparing for your Fight

Make sure your Pokemon have crossed at least level 55 if you want to defeat the False Dragon Titan. Also make sure you’re well stocked up on Healing Items like Revives and Potions – you’re gonna need it.

After interacting with the “Taitaaan!” Tatsugiri, Dondozo will emerge.

You’re going to want to make sure your team has a good mix of Electric and Grass-type Pokemon. A Dragon-type wouldn’t hurt either. Extra points if you have a Pokemon that has Fairy-type moves, since Fairy is immune to Dragon attacks.

I. Phase I

Dondozo is a tank. It’s stronger than any other Titan you’ve seen. Dondozo is a Water-type fish Pokemon with a Water Veil Hidden Ability. Make sure you use your attacks well until its health is down to red. Note, this isn’t going to be a one-shot fight.

Dondozo specializes in defense, so once it’s damaged enough, it will retreat.

Search the lake again by following the map.

II. Phase II

Like in other Titan battles, Dondozo will smash a hole in the wall and consume a Tatsugiri (the little sushi guy).

You’ll meet Arven in Phase II, who will help you with a level 55 Greedent to defeat the amped up Dondozo. Dondozo will use Order Up which is super effective, so be careful.

After you manage to defeat Dondozo, you might Herba Mystica is next on the menu, but it’s Phase III.

III. Phase III

Enter Tatsugiri.

Tatsugiri is a Dragon/Water-type Mimicry Pokemon who is immensely intelligent. Its Signature ability is Commander and Hidden ability is Storm Drain; this is where your Fairy-type will come in use. Tatsugiri is also weak to Ice and other Dragon attacks.

2. Find the Herba Mystica

Once you defeat the Tatsugiri, you will have defeated both False Dragon Titans who make up the Dragon Titan.

Go inside the cave to find the Spicy Herba Mystica!

False Dragon Titan Reward

The reward you get for defeating the False Dragon Titans is the Climbing for Mount, the ability to let Koraidon/Miraidon climb vertical surfaces.
