Team Star Poison Crew Base Location in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet
You can find the base of the Team Star Poison Crew in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet north of Zapapico at the Tagtree Thicket location. The entrance with the Grunt guarding it is marked with a purple Poison icon on your map.
To quickly find the Poison Base, fly to the Pokemon Center in the northwest of the Eastern Province (Area Tree), the center bordering the Tagtree Thicket area, then follow the main path into the thicket.
When you get close enough to the entrance of the Navi Squad base, a cutscene will play. After that, you can head towards the flags to fight a trainer outside before going inside, so it’s a good idea to make sure your Pokemon are healed up before heading to the base.
Youssef Pokémon Trainer Outside Team Star’s Poison Crew Base in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet
The Grunt outside the Star Poison Crew base in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet will run to the base to alert the rest of Team Star that you’re here, so you’ll fight Trainer Youssef instead. Youssef fights with a Level 30 Gulpin and Level 31 Shroodle.
Both Gulpin and Shroodle are Poison-types, so make sure you have a psychic or ground type in the first slot of your team, as Poison is vulnerable to these moves. If you don’t have any good Psychic or Ground Pokemon, you can use Poison, Rock, or Steel-types, but they won’t be as effective.
We used Charcadet Armarouge’s evolution at level 47, which is a dual fire-type and psychic type, to beat Gulpin and Shroodle quickly. However, Armarouge is only available on Pokémon Scarlet, so those playing Violet should select another Psychic or strong Ground-type.
Once you defeat Trainer Youssef, you will get 1,612 prize moneyand gains access to the Poison Crew base.
However, before ringing the bell to enter Team Star’s Venom base, make sure the first three pokemon in your team are fully healedsince you will only be able to use them in the next challenge.
How to Complete Star Barrage at Team Star’s Poison Crew Base in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet
In order to clear Team Star’s Poison base, you must defeat 30 of their Pokémon in 10 minutes during a ‘Starfall’ and then fight the Poison Crew leader, Atticus.
You’ll be using the Let’s Go feature to take on the Star Barrage, so press ‘R’ to send out your Pokemon when you encounter groups of enemies. You can continue to press ‘R’ to summon more of your Pokémon and move them between areas when you come across more enemies.
During the Poison Crew’s Star Barrage Challenge, you’ll face off against the following Pokémon:
- Paldean Wooper
Although we recommend using Psychic or Ground types – since Poison-types are weak against them – to prepare for the upcoming boss fight, almost any Pokemon at a high enough Level will be able to take down 30 of these Pokemon in a few minutes.
Just make sure not to use Grass or Fairy-types, as they are vulnerable to Poison moves.
We used a lineup of Armarouge, Clodsire, and Pawmo, all level 48, and were able to beat Poison Crew’s Star Barrage challenge in under three minutes.
If you notice your Pokemon are low on health during a Star Barrage, you can return to Clive and he will heal your party for you. However, if one of them faints, you can help him recover HP by using one of the vending machines in the base.
If you’re too low in level, or have accidentally chosen the wrong types for your party, you can press ‘Y’ to give up for now, and you can come back later to try Star Barrage again whenever you want.

How to beat Atticus in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet
Once you complete the Star Barrage at the Poison Crew’s base, you will have to face their leader, Atticus, in a battle.
Atticus will use four Pokémon:
- Skunk Tank – Level 32
- Bathroom – Level 32
- Muk – Level 32
- Revavroom (Navi Starmobile) – Level 32
Skuntank is a dual Poison and Dark type, so you can’t use psychic moves on it. However, Ground is resistant to Poison and also Super Effective against it, so we suggest using a ground type in Skunktankas Clodsire, the evolution of Paldean Wooper.
Bathroom is a double type of poison and steel, so staying with a ground pokemon is still super effective against it. Just be careful if you use Clodsire, as Revavroom’s Bulldoze will be super effective, since Clodsire is a Ground and Poison type. types of fire it might work against Revvroom too.
Muk’s type is Poison only, so Ground and Psychic Pokemon will work better against it.. Just keep in mind that Muk can also use ground moves, so if he has a dual poison type, they’ll be vulnerable here as well.
The second Revavroom is the Navi Starmobile variant, so it shares the same weaknesses as Poison, as its type is specific to this Poison Crew’s base. So Psychic and Ground types will be effective in beating Atticus’s Navi Starmobile Revroom.. Armarouge is a good choice, as it is also resistant to Navi Starmobile’s Spin Out attack.
We also recommend bringing many potions and antidotes with you for facing Atticus, since you’ll probably be poisoned at least a couple of times.
Once you have defeated Skuntank, Revavroom, Muk, and Navi Starmobile, you will have successfully defeated Atticus and cleared Team Star’s Poison Crew base.
In addition to receiving Atticus’ Team Star Badge and progressing through the Starfall Street story, you’ll earn the following rewards:
That’s another Team Star Crew base, so why not take on Giacomo, Mela, Ortega, or Eri next? Or maybe you want to continue with Victory Road or Path of Legends? The world is your Cloyster!
