With all five Team Star leaders beaten, there's only one thing left to do to disband the delinquents. Pokémon Scarlet & Violet's Starfall Street has touched on some difficult subjects around bullying, but you'll need to prove who's boss in order to reach the end of the road.

Be careful as there are endgame spoilers for the identity of Cassiopeia here — use the Run command if you don't want to see!

Here's how to beat Cassiopeia and complete Starfall Street.

Pokémon Scarlet & Violet Guide: Starfall Street - How To Beat Cassiopeia

Where to find Cassiopeia

Cassiopeia will ask you to come to the Academy schoolyard at night. So head to Mesagoza at night — there's a fly point directly outside of the Academy.

When you arrive there, you'll see Clive waiting outside the school doors for you. Save before you approach him, as you'll not only find out his true identity but also have to take him on in a difficult battle.

When you're ready, make your tentative steps towards Clive.

How to beat Director Clavell

Surprise! It was Director Clavell all along. He had you fooled, didn't he? Didn't he...?

Director Clavell, it turns out, is the Director of the Academy for a reason — he's a strong Pokémon Trainer in his own right. And as Cassiopeia, he means business.

Remember your starter at the beginning of the game? Remember Nemona chose the Pokémon that was weak to your choice? Well, Clavell's ace is the starter that's strong against your type. Gulp. Luckily, your 'mon's secondary type should be super effective, but that won't help when it Terastallizes.

Bring a good variety of Pocket Monsters with you — Rock, Dark, and Ice Pokémon cover a good portion of Clavell's team. Depending on who Clavell uses for his ace, you'll want an Electric, Water, or Ice-type Pokémon with you. Glimmora, Baxcalibur, Ampharos, Pawmot, Armarouge, Tatsugiri, and Lokix have good type coverage. If you're using your starter, they're all effective against one of Clavell's Pokémon.

Beating Clavell gives us even more revelations about the identity of Cassiopeia.

Come back to Mesagoza at night again and enter the Academy. Walk up to the terminal near the front desk and select the Schoolyard to be transported over there. A cutscene will begin immediately, and you'll be challenged by the real Cassiopeia — Penny.

How to beat Penny of Team Star

Penny has a pretty unique team because all six of her Pokémon are Eevee Evolutions, meaning they're all monotype Pokémon and all have different weaknesses. More than anything, movesets are crucial.

The biggest threat is Sylveon — who is Fairy Tera-type. That means you'll want to Terastallize your Tinkaton or Clodsire into their Tera-type to combat this. Clodsire is also good for Jolteon, Flareon, and Leafeon, while Tinkaton is good against Umbreon. Electric, Grass, or Fire Pokémon will also help you out here. Fortunately, Penny isn't too tough, but her team is cute at least.

Rewards from Penny

After a few cutscenes, leave the Academy and Penny will call you and ask you to meet her at the bottom of the school's staircase. Talk to her to complete Starfall Street for good! You'll also get TM169 Draco Meteor for your troubles.
