You might expect this titan to be slow and bulky, but the reality is quite the opposite. Either of the Quaking Earth Titans can use the Rapid Spin attack. This attack significantly increases its speed and does moderate Normal-type damage to your Pokémon

Also keep an eye out for Iron Head, a Steel-Type move by Iron Treads, and Brick-Break, a Fighting-type move from Great Tusk.

Strategy To Use When Fighting The Quaking Earth Titan

The best strategy for either of the Quaking Earth Titans is to use status effect attacks that lower the titan’s attack, like Growl. This is because the Pokémon has no way to increase its attack, and relies mostly on physical attacks, lowering its attack will make the fight much easier.

One thing you need to bear in mind is that you should never attack during a sandstorm since the Iron treads Quaking Earth Titan will receive zero damage as it is immune to sandstorms whereas your Pokémon HP will recede.

Iron Treads

The Quaking Earth Titan in Pokémon Scarlet is particularly weak to Ground and Fighting-type moves. You can dish out a lot of damage through any of these Pokémon, but if your move AP runs out, then go for a Fire or Water Pokémon. 

A Fire attack may even end up burning Iron Treads, which will deal him continuous damage over the next few turns.

Great Tusk

For Great Tusk, opt for Water, Grass, Psychic and Flying-type Pokemon. Surprisingly enough, Great Tusk doesn’t know any Ground-type moves, so even the Pokémon susceptible to those attacks stand a fighting chance.


That’s all you need to keep in mind when fighting the Quaking Earth Titans. So get out there and show those titans who the best trainer is in Paldea.
