In Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, you explore the Paldea region, a vast island with different biomes and environments. Along your journey, you will find massive cliffs that you can't get up without climbing. This may leave you wondering how to climb in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet.

How to scale walls in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet

To climb and scale walls in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, you will first need to unlock the ability to do so. This is done by defeating the False Dragon Titan, Dondozo and Tatsugiri. These are the highest-level Titan Pokémon, so be prepared for a fight. We recommend bringing a powerful Electric-type Pokémon to defeat Dondozo, and a strong Fairy-type Pokémon for Tatsugiri. Here is where to find the Titan Dondozo and Tatsugiri in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet.

In addition to climbing, you can also unlock the ability to jump higher. This is done by defeating the Lurking Steel Titan, which is Orfworm. It is a Steel-type Pokémon, so bring a strong Fire or Fighting-type Pokémon.
