To get this Pokemon, you should have the climbing ability unlocked. Once you do, you will be able to travel on top of mountains and scale them with the help of the legendary Pokemon Koraidon or Miraidon depending on which version of the game you are playing.

The first thing that you need to do if you want to find Garchomp in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet is to make your way to the Great Crater of Paldea. If you are looking at the Pokedex, it will show nothing but a big question mark. So, you will need to find this one by yourself. 

When you are at the Great Crater, you should be able to climb up to it and walk around. At the edge, there are two very powerful Pokémon flying around one of which is Garchomp, the one that you are looking for. The other one is Magnezone. Garchomp will be about level 55 and you should prepare for the fight accordingly.

Garchomp will usually be flying around in the air, but it will come down when it spots you. To catch this Pokemon, you will need to use Dragon, Ice, or Fairy Type Pokémon as it is weak to it. Once you have defeated it, you will finally be able to catch Garchomp.
