Who is Arven?

Arven is one of the characters at the academy. At first, he’s hopeless at Pokemon battles. But, as the story progresses, he becomes much stronger. In fact, he becomes so strong that he becomes the final character to defeat in Scarlet and Violet’s story mode.

How to Find Arven

Finding Arven is actually pretty simple. Once you’ve progressed to the last mission in the story, Arven will agree to meet you at the Poco Path Lighthouse laboratory. You’ll be able to fly there and open the door, which will start the final mission.

After a short cut scene, you’ll be able to leave the lab to meet Arven outside, ready for a tough battle.

All of these Pokemon are pretty tough, but Mabosstiff is going to be a particular challenge. Bring a strong fairy type to counter this Pokemon, for maximum effect. 

A good fighting type Pokemon should be able to deal with Greedent and Gargancl, as well as Cloyster. As for Scovillain and Toedscreul, take a flying type for a strong counter. For backups, we recommend a grass type and any of your other most powerful Pokemon.
