The Teal Mask is the first part of The Hidden Treasure of Area Zero DLC for Pokémon Scarlet and Violet.

During The Teal Mask DLC, you embark on a school trip to Kitakami. Here you’ll find both new Pokémon and ones from past generations who didn’t originally appear in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet. You’ll also learn about a local folklore concerning a group of Pokémon called The Loyal Three.

Below you’ll find our The Teal Mask walkthrough, which will help you complete the first part of Pokémon Scarlet and Violet’s DLC.

The Teal Mask walkthrough for Pokémon Scarlet and Violet

Below you’ll find our Teal Mask DLC walkthrough for Pokémon Scarlet and Violet. Before you get started, however, there are three important facts you should be aware of.

The first is to ensure you know how to start The Teal Mask DLC for Pokémon Scarlet and Violet.

Secondly, the level scaling in The Teal Mask DLC will roughly match your progress in the main campaign of Pokémon Scarlet and Violet. For trainers who've completed the main campaign, the levels of the Pokémon you encounter in the wild and in trainer battles will range from Level 50 to over Level 70. If you've just started out in your Scarlet and Violet adventure, these levels will instead be in the Level 10 to 30 range.

You'll easily be able to tell how the levels in The Teal Mask have scaled to your playthrough by starting a battle with a wild Pokémon and, if you're unsure about where the levels will fall, we recommend doing this the moment you land in Kitakami. This will prevent you from entering a trainer battle you're definately not ready for.

Finally, The Teal Mask DLC follows a far more linear structure when compared to the main campaign of Pokémon Scarlet and Violet. There is, in fact, only one place where you’re able to tackle tasks in whatever order you like.

With these details out of the way, it’s time to take a look at what you’ll be doing in The Teal Mask DLC - be wary of the spoilers lying below!

Fezandipiti, Okidogi and Munkidori locations in The Teal Mask DLC in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet

You now need to find and defeat each member of The 'Loyal' three alongside Carmine.

These battles are exactly the same as the ones you had with the Titan Pokémon in Scarlet and Violet’s main campaign.

This means that, during these battles, you can not catch The Loyal Three. (Though you will be able to do so later.) You can, however, catch The Loyal Three later on...

You will, however, receive an Attack boost from Ogerpon if the battle lasts for a certain number of turns. Carmine also has access to her full team - all of which are at Level 70 - so you won’t be left fighting alone.

Here are the locations for The 'Loyal' Three:

  • Fezandipiti (Poison and Fairy-type) - At Fellhorn Gorge on Oni Mountain, which is reached by continuing the path around the mountain after the path leading to the Crystal Pool. Climb down the set of ladders you encounter and then follow Fezandipiti into the cave. You need to reach the very bottom of the cave and go through the entrance there to find this Pokémon.

  • Okidogi (Poison and Fighting-type) - At Paradise Barrens in the north-western corner of Kitakami.

  • Munkidori (Poison and Psychic-type) - At Wisteria Pond in the south-western corner of Kitakami.

Now that you’ve defeated The 'Loyal' Three, it’s time to finish helping Ogerpon out:

Keep in mind that the levels listed below are for players who've completed the main campaign of Pokémon Scarlet and Violet.

  • Return to Mossui Town.
  • Take Ogerpon back to the Dreaded Den.
  • Battle Kieran:
    • Shiftry (Level 71 / Grass and Dark-type)
    • Gliscor (Level 76 / Ground and Flying-type)
    • Poliwrath (Level 72 / Water and Fighting-type)
    • Yanmega (Level 72 / Bug and Flying-type)
    • Probopass (Level 71 / Rock and Steel-type)
    • Dipplin (Level 72 / Grass and Dragon-type)

How to catch Ogerpon in The Teal Mask DLC in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet

Having gained Ogerpon’s trust, it’s now time to catch it! But, since life is never easy, you first need to defeat it in a Titan-styled battle and a rather unique one at that.

You actually have to defeat Ogerpon four times - once for each of its masks - before you can add it to your Pokédex. Each of Ogerpon’s Masks changes its type and, since there’s no breaks in this battle, you need to be ready to adapt to this type change.

Ogerpon’s Mask order, along with the Mask type and weaknesses are:

  • Hearthflame - Fire-type, so weak to Rock, Ground and Water-types.
  • Wellspring - Water-type, so weak to Electric and Grass-types.
  • Cornerstone - Rock-type, so weak to Fighting, Grass, Ground, Steel and Water-types.
  • Teal - Grass-type, so weak to Bug, Fire, Flying, Ice and Poison-types.

We highly recommend stocking up on healing items, especially Hyper Potions and Revives, before battling Ogerpon as one wrong move could lead to your Pokémon fainting. It’s also a good idea to save before starting the battle. You may also want to make some team changes to ensure you’re targeting the weaknesses for each Mask.

When battling Ogerpon, you’ll want to keep an eye out for the move Ivy Cudgel. This attack adapts to its current Mask type; meaning when Ogerpon is wearing the Hearthflame Mask it’s a Fire-type attack, but becomes a Grass-type attack during the Teal Mask stage. It’s quite the powerful attack and can easily knock your Pokémon out in one-hit if you’re not careful. You can avoid this attack, however, by using a Pokémon who has an Ability which will absorb its damage like Flash Fire.

Ogerpon’s moveset also includes Grassy Terrain, Low Kick and Slam. Grassy Terrain is both a blessing and a curse, because, while it will provide your Pokémon with a little bit of health, it will do the same to Ogerpon.

It’s also important to remember that, while Ogerpon is able to Terastallize four times during this battle, you can only do it once. This means you need to make sure you pick both the timing of this Terastallization and the Pokémon you’re doing it to carefully. For this reason, we recommend Terastallizing a Grass-type Pokémon during the Wellspring Mask stage as both it and the Cornerstone Mask are weak to Grass-type Pokémon. Still, no matter how you use this mechanic while battling Ogerpon, you need to make it count.

Now you’ve caught Ogerpon, there’s only a couple more things to do before your field trip in Kitakami comes to a close:

Keep in mind that the levels listed below are for players who've completed the main campaign of Pokémon Scarlet and Violet.

  • Meet Carmine at Loyalty Plaza.
  • Battle Carmine - Ogerpon must be in your team for this battle to occur:
    • Mightyena (Level 70 / Dark-type)
    • Ninetales (Level 72 / Fire-type)
    • Leavanny (Level 72 / Bug and Grass-type)
    • Sinistcha (Level 74 / Grass and Ghost-type)
    • Morpeko (Level 71 / Electric and Dark-type)
  • Return to the Community Centre.
