How to Travel Across Water in Pokémon Scarlet & Violet
There are a lot of ways to get around in Pokémon Scarlet & Violet. You can climb the mountains once you have the right pokemon, or you can use other quick methods such as fast travel. For a tutorial on fast travel, you can check out the guide below.
The new region in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet is called the Paldea region which is a large open island with various biomes. Apart from the large mountains, you will also come across the ocean and other waterbodies. If you want to explore the watery areas, you will be able to do so, so let’s find out how.
Surfing and swimming are great options to explore the map in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet. You just need to unlock the Pokemon in order to get the ability to do so. The first thing you will need to do is to play through the main story missions and follow the path of the Titan and Herba Mystica.
Defeat Open Sky Titan, Bombirdier, who is a level 19 Boss with the Flying and Dark-type powers. Its weaknesses are Electric and Rock-type Pokémon, so make sure to bring those into the fight in order to defeat this Titan. You can find him in the upper southwest corner of Paldea.
Once you have done so, you will get Pokemon called Koraidon and Miraidon. They have the ability to swim and surf in water, so you just need to get close to a waterbody to begin traversing through it.
