Pokémon Scarlet & Violet: What is in the post-game?


WHILE the main storyline of Pokémon Scarlet and Violet is jam-packed with challenges to overcome, the post-game adds a lot more.

If you’ve beaten all the gyms, Team Star bases, and Titans, and taken on the Elite 4, then you might be wondering what else you can do.

This duo are double trouble.

Here’s a few quests you can complete after the credits have rolled on Pokémon Scarlet and Violet.

Pokémon Scarlet & Violet: Where is the Master Ball?

There’s a Master Ball in every game which is always worth picking up.

Go to the director’s office after the credits roll, and watch the cutscene. 

This will start a short questline which has a rather nice reward.

Pokémon Scarlet & Violet: Can you rebattle the Gym leaders?

While in the director’s office, Nemona will arrive and announce that she wants Geeta to participate in a tournament.

Geeta will then leave the responsibility of looking after Paldea’s gyms to you.

This means you will have to travel to each of the gyms and rematch the leaders there.

All of them have five Pokémon now, all levelled at 60+, making them a much tougher challenge.

Once you’ve beaten them all again, Geeta will give you a new task.

Pokémon Scarlet & Violet: What is the Academy Ace Tournament?

Nemona will then ask you to take part in her tournament held at the school.

You’ll face a group of different students and staff over a series of battles.

Everyone in the tournament has a team of six that are all over level 65, facing Geeta again in the final.

You can take part in this as many times as you want, and the people you face will be random.

Pokémon Scarlet & Violet: What are black crystal Tera-raids?

After you finish one Academy Ace Tournament, your biology teacher will contact you to tell you that more powerful Pokémon will now appear in Tera-raids.

These raids will glow with harsh black light, so you can spot them from afar.

They contain rare Pokémon with fully evolved pseudo-legendaries that award you with rare items and XL Exp candy.

Pokémon Scarlet & Violet: Can you rematch Team Star?

The gym leaders aren’t the only people willing to fight you again. Team Star is also happy to take you on.

All of the bosses have been reassigned to training centers, where you can battle them again.

If you talk to them they’ll fight you with a new team of five with levels exceeding 65.

However, their Starmobiles will be sadly missing.
