Sitting at the entrance of the Asado Desert, the Cascarrafa Gym is located in West Province Area One. While best tackled as the fourth Gym on the way to the Paldean Championship, it is a long way from Iono at Levincia. It also sits directly next to the Great Tusk or Iron Treds Titan challenge, though we don’t recommend doing this yet, as the Pokémon awaiting trainers is level 45 – a big jump from the Gym challenge in Cascarrafa.

How to Defeat Kofu at Cascarrafa Gym in Pokémon Scarlet & Violet

Kofu hits hard with his team of three Water-type Pokémon. Sitting between levels 29-30, and sporting moves that will knock unprepared challengers flat, prep is key for this Gym battle. Players will want to have at least two powerful Electric-type Pokemon on their team, and prepare to take both the Fighting-type moves wielded by Crabominable. Below are a few suggestions for players to slot into their party.

  • Pawmi
  • Pikachu
  • Shinx
  • Mareep
  • Tadbulb

**At this point, all of the above should be Evolved except Pikachu, which can take this battle well without a Thunderstone.

Additionally, players will need to make sure they are no lower than level 35, with 40 making the battle much easier.
