How to get to Cascarrafa in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet
If you haven’t unlocked any Pokémon Centers near the city yet, the easiest way to reach Cascarrafa in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet is to travel the road north of Cortondo, passing the river through the Western Province (Area One). Best to fly to a Pokemon Center here if you can.
If you’re heading towards the Team Star Dark Crew base, you’ll only need to go a little north from here to reach the water city of Cascarrafa.
If you’re getting lost, remember to set Cascarrafa as the destination on your map to ensure it appears as a waypoint on your minimap. Once you’re there, you’ll find the gym in the southern part of town, but you need to take an elevator to its location.
How to get to Puerto Marinada in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet for the Cascarrafa Gym challenge
The Cascarrafa gym challenge asks you to return Kofu’s wallet upon reaching the city of Port Marinada.
To get to Puerto Marinada in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet you must first go through the Asado Desert. The easiest way to get through the desert is to exit the Cascarrafa north entrance, then head northwest across the sand until you reach the exit on the other side.
We recommend setting it as your destination, so you can easily navigate to it. Of course, you can go do something else and visit the port at another time if you wish.
When you get close enough to the port, you will see Kofu. He won’t wait to talk to you, instead he’ll run to the market, so continue to Port Marinada to continue this Water Gym challenge.
Kofu is located inside the main market on the western side of the port. However, when you talk to him, Gym Trainer Hugo will stop you and start a battle.
Here’s how to beat Coach Hugo:
|Float||28||Water||Electric and Grass|
|pitcher||28||Water||Electric and Grass|
You’ll get 3,920 prize money for defeating Hugo, and now he can return Kofu’s wallet. He will then ask you to make an offer on some seaweed for him and give you a prize money of 50,000. We had to bid the entire 50,000 to win it, but if you can do it in less, you keep what’s left of his money.
With Kofu’s wallet returned and the auction over, it’s time to head back to Cascarrafa to face off against Kofu at the Water Gym!
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.

How to beat Aquatic Gym Leader Kofu in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet
Kofu, the leader of Cascarrafa’s gym, loves water-type Pokémon, and his team reflects that.
Water-type Pokémon are weak to Grass and Electric type Pokémon.
This means that you will easily defeat Kofu if you choose Sprigatito as your starter Pokemon. If you haven’t, then a Pawmi is worth catching – this Electric-type Pokemon can be found near the beginning of the game, in southern Paldea.
Remember, like all Gym Leaders, Kofu will Terastall his last Pokémon, so even if it isn’t a Water type at first, it will turn into one.
Kofu’s Pokémon team is:
|Veluza||29||Water / Psychic||Bug, Dark, Electric, Grass and Ghost|
|wugtrio||29||Water||Electric and Grass|
|crabominable||30||Fight / Ice
Land Type: Water
|Fairy, Flying, Fighting, Fire, Psychic, and Steel
Terra Type: Electric and Grass
For defeating Kofu, you will receive 5,400 Prize Money, TM022 Chilling Water, and a Gym Badge – Increasing the level cap for Pokémon to hear you and make them easier to catch will depend on where you are in the Victory Road story.
Also, depending on where you are on Victory Road, you might have a battle with Nemona after you beat Kofu.
Who will you face next on Victory Road? Will it be Kathy, Brassius, Iono, Larry, Ryme, Tulip or Grusha? Or maybe you’re ready to battle the Elite Four! If you want to take a break from gyms, you can also tackle the Path of Legends and Starfall Street stories.
