Pokemon Scarlet & Violet: Beat Team Star Crew Complete Guide

Nov 24, 2022 · 10


The Team Star crews in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet are a key component to the "Starfall Street" story and quest line. In some cases, the crews will even stop you from progressing into the next zone unless you can beat them. For this reason, it's not likely you'll be skipping the entire story even if you are only interested in gym badges or defeating titans.

In this Team Star guide we will cover each of the 5 Starfall Street Crews, the Pokemon they will use including their weaknesses, and even show gameplay of the encounter for you to be as well prepared as possible for your journey.

Team Star Order for Starfall Street Story Line

Although you do not need to defeat the Team Star crews in any particular order, you will find it easiest to take them down in the following order. The order is based on the level of the Pokemon in their party:

  1. Dark Crew (Giacomo): Levels 20-21
  2. Fire Crew (Mela): Levels 26-27
  3. Poison Crew (Atticus): Levels 32-33
  4. Fairy Crew (Ortega): Levels 50-51
  5. Fighting Crew (Eri): 55-56

What To Do In Team Star Encounters

At each Team Star location, you will likely have to engage in some chit chat before hand, then battle someone outside of the compound. After winning the easy Pokemon battle, you should head back to the Pokecenter and heal your Pokemon, then head back to the Team Star base. Ring the bell in front of the base, and you will be brought inside.

Inside the base, you will have 10 minutes to defeat 30 Pokemon using the "Let's Go!" mechanic. Complete this by running around and tapping the "R" button on your controller to send one of your first 3 Pokemon from your party out at the enemy Pokemon. This part of the fight is incredibly easy and should pose no challenge to you if you are appropriately leveled for the encounter.

If you do run into any issues with your Pokemon health, you can use the vending machines you see inside the base to heal them.

Once the 30 Pokemon are defeated, you will engage in a battle with the team leader. Don't worry, your Pokemon will still have the same full health they came into the base with prior to the 30 Pokemon event.
