Pokémon Scarlet and Violet have just been released for the Nintendo Switch platform, and players can try out the game from the 18th of November. The new region of Paldea in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet is open for players and Pokemon fans to freely explore in various ways. In this guide, we will take you through the process of how to beat Team Star Fire Crew in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet.
How to Beat Team Star Fire Crew in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet
The new Pokemon game has several boss fights that you can take up as a challenge and unlock more of the game. There are also groups that you will come across, and one of them is the Team Star Fire Crew. They have a lot of Fire Type Pokemon and will give you a hard time as they are one of the first groups you will come across that you need to beat.
While exploring East Province Area One in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet, you should find the base of Team Star’s Fire Crew. Make sure that your Pokemon are powerful enough before you decide to you enter the base, as the fight will not be easy this early into the game. Your Pokemon should be at least level 25.
The first enemy that you need to beat is the guard of the Fire Crew, which is quite easy. You can get into the base when you are done, which triggers a 10-minute challenge called the Star Barrage phase. You will need to choose three Pokemon to go up against the Fire Crew’s team.
The boss that you will be fighting next is Mela, who has a Level 27 Pokemon called Torkoal. This will be a challenging fight, as the Pokemon will use its Drought ability to boost the Fire-type moves of their team. You can use abilities such as Psyduck’s Cloud Nine to get rid of the effect. Use Ground, Rock, or Water-type moves to take out Torkoal.
