How to find The Quaking Earth Titan

This Titan Pokémon can be found in the Asado Desert west of Casseroya and just south of Port Marinada.

If you're coming from the south — far from Alfornada and Cortondo — then you won't have to look very far for this large elephant-like Pokémon. Look to the west from the beginning of the desert, and keep walking towards the darker patch of sand on the map.

If you're coming from Medali, then just go all the way to the most westerly part of the desert.

Depending on what version you're playing, you'll see something different. If you're playing Scarlet, the Pokémon will look like a roughed-up ancient elephant. If you're playing Violet, then you'll spot a shiny, metallic elephant in the distance.

Engage with it, and you'll find out that this is an unusual type of Pokémon that has managed to escape from somewhere.

How to beat Great Tusk and Iron Treads, The Quaking Earth Titan

In Pokémon Scarlet, you'll be fighting Great Tusk, a Ground/Fighting-type Pokémon. Immediately, you know it's immune to Electric, so don't bring any moves of that type. Instead, your Water or Grass starter Pokémon are excellent choices here.

Flying, Psychic, and Fairy-types are all really good here and help to exploit Great Tusk's weaknesses. Don't bring an Ice-type as they'll be weak to its Fighting moves. Kilowattrel (with a focus on Flying), Espathra, Gardevoir, Dachsbun, and Farigiraf are a nice selection of allies.

In Pokémon Violet, your foe is Iron Treads, who is Ground/Steel-type. It has fewer weaknesses than its ancient cousin, but it is weak to Fire and Water, meaning your croc and duck starters will serve you well.

Interestingly, Iron Treads is weak to Fighting type, so Hariyama is a solid choice. You can also bring Ground-type Pokémon, so Clodsire, Hippowdon, and plenty of the Desert's Pokémon are great here.

With your team ready, this Titan fight is really no different to the others — regardless of which version you're playing. Take the Donphan-like creature down to low health and then watch it flee to the southwest corner of the desert.

Check your map if you're unsure, but the Pokémon hasn't gone far, and you'll just need to hop on your bike and chase it down, where Arven will team up with you once again, and he'll reveal some information about this unusual creature.

Take it down the same way you did before, and you'll win, find out about some Paldean secrets, and get a Herba Mystica.
