False Dragon Titan location, Dondozo weaknesses in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet
Dondozo – also known as the False Dragon Titan – is one of the five Titan Pokémon in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet.
Dondozo needs to be discovered and defeated as part of the Path of Legends story in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet.
Regardless of the order in which you take on the Titans, you’ll want to know more about the location of the False Dragon Titan, as well as Dondozo’s Weaknesses – especially if you are approaching a low level.

Recommended level of False Dragon Titan
Before facing the False Dragon Titan, we recommend you have a team level in the mid to high 50s.
You will also need to have completed enough titans to unlock the ability to swim to get to this titan.
If you’re facing him before then, it’s highly recommended to focus on Dondozo’s weaknesses as a Water type.
Location and encounter of the False Dragon Titan
This titan is located in the middle of Lake Casseroya; you can find it by heading north from Medali. This means that you must have unlocked swimming first, which requires you to beat at least two other Titans first.
As usual, you will receive a call from Arven when you get close. You’ll want to look for the little orange fish Pokémon that says “Taitaaan!” at the southern tip of the southeastern island:
Speak and the Titan will appear.
After the first encounter, head to the north shore of the island further west.
This will cause Dondozo to break down the entrance to the cave and start the main battle with Arven in tow, who will come with a level 55 Greedent.
After that, surprise! – Then you will fight the small orange fish Pokémon. This is Tatsugiri, with Arven speculating that perhaps these two together are the Titan.
Once the battles are over (see below for weaknesses if you want to easily get the upper hand), you will enter the cave and discover a Herba Mystica. This will unlock a new exploration ability for Koraidon or Miraidon: the ability to climb.
Our Pokemon Scarlet and Violet walkthrough can walk you through the entire game, including First Day of School, Victory Road, Starfall Street, and Path of Legends. Elsewhere we can help with version differences, the best Scarlet and Violet starter, learning how to fly, swim, climb and run, and how to evolve Charcadet into Armarouge.
Dondozo and Tatsugiri Weaknesses
Dondozo is a pure water type, which means you’ll want counter with electric or grass movements.
Meanwhile, Tatsugiri is a dragon/water type, so we recommend going for dragon or fairy type moves. Electric and grass, if you keep the same team from the previous match, you won’t get lost either.
Once you’ve beaten this Titan Pokemon and gotten the reward of Herba Mystica, our best Titan Pokemon order recommends what to do next, though if you’ve beaten Dondozo, you’re level high enough to take on anyone you want!
