How to beat Eri in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, and Team Star Fighting Crew’s base location

Eri is the leader of Caph Squad in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, who are the fighting team of the evil Star Team.

To get Eri’s Star Badge in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, you’ll first have to clear the Battle Star Blitz inside the base and then defeat Eri herself.

To help you earn that badge and progress through the Starfall Street story, below we detail where to find Team Star’s Fighting Crew base, along with which Pokémon you should face outside the base and how to remove the Star Barrage and defeat the Leader of the Star Fighting team, Eri.

Location of Team Star’s Fighting Crew base in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet

You can find the Team Star Fighting Crew base in both Pokémon Scarlet and Violet in the Northern Province (Area Two), just southeast of the Pokémon Center, near the curve at the end of the map. The entrance with the Grunt guarding it is marked with an orange fight icon on your map.

If you can’t fly to this hub yet, the best way to find the Fighting Crew base is to go to the Glaseado Ice Gym, which is south of Montenevera.

From the Ice Gym, head northeast until you reach the grassy edge of Glazed Mountain, where you descend into the Northern Province (Area One).

Then, head south to the Northern Province Pokémon Center (Area One) and continue following the path, south and then northeast until you finally reach the Northern Province Pokémon Center (Area Two). Team Star Fighting’s base is just after this center.

Head towards the yellow flags to fight a trainer outside before entering. It’s a good idea to make sure your Pokémon are healed before heading to the base.

How to beat Carmen outside Team Star’s Fighting Crew base in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet

After a short conversation, you’ll fight Carmen, who fights a level 54 Croagunk and a level 55 Primeape.

Croagunk is a dual poison and fighting type, so you’ll need to use a high-level flying, ground, or psychic type to take it out. Carmen’s second Pokémon is Primeape, which is only a Scare type, so you must use a Fairy, Flying, or Psychic type to deal with it. Our level 51 Armarouge took care of both Pokémon quickly.

Once you defeat Carmen, you will get 2860 prize money and be able to access the Fighting Crew base.

However, before ringing the bell to enter Team Star’s battle base, make sure the first three Pokémon on your team are fully healed, as you will only be able to use them in the next challenge.

How to complete Star Barrage at Team Star’s Fighting Crew base in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet

To clear Fighting Team Star’s base, you must defeat 30 of their Pokémon in 10 minutes during a ‘Star Barrage’ and then battle the Fighting Crew leader, Eri.

You’ll use the Let’s Go feature to take on Star Barrage, so press ‘R’ to send out your Pokémon when you encounter groups of enemies. You can continue to press ‘R’ to summon more Pokémon and move them between areas when you encounter more enemies.

During the Fighting Crew Star Barrage challenge, you will face the following Pokémon:

  • mankey
  • primape
  • Heracruz
  • toxic
  • Passimiano
  • hariyama
  • doctor
  • crabminable
  • falinks
  • Flemish
  • Hawlucha
  • Gallada
  • Breloom

Although we recommend using Flying, Psychic, and Fairy types (since Fighting types are weak against them) to prepare for the upcoming boss fight, virtually any Pokémon with a high enough level will be able to defeat 30 of these Pokémon in a period of time. of time. Few minutes.

Just make sure not to use Normal, Rock, Steel, Ice, or Dark types, as they are vulnerable to Fighting moves.

We used a lineup of Armarouge, Tinkaton, and Meowscarada, at levels 56 and 57, and were able to beat Fighting Crew’s Star Barrage challenge in under three minutes.

If you notice that your Pokémon is 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 them recover HP by using one of the vending machines in the base.

If you’re too low level or have accidentally chosen the wrong types for your party, you can press ‘Y’ to give up for now and come back later to try Star Barrage again whenever you want.

Our The Teal Mask walkthrough will help you complete the first part of The Hidden Treasure of Area Zero DLC, but make sure you know how to start it first. When visiting Kitakami it is a good idea to know how to get Sinistea, Dipplin and The Loyal Three. Our Pokémon Scarlet and Violet walkthrough can take you through the main campaign, including The First Day of School, Victory Road, Starfall Street, Path of Legends, and, when you’re ready, The Way Home and the final boss. Elsewhere, we can help with the normal gym test secret item menu, version differences, the best scarlet and violet starter, XP farming, shiny Pokémon, and learning to fly, swim, climb, and run. When it comes to individual Pokémon, we can help with Gimmighoul, Ditto, Bellibolt, Pawmot, Scovillain, Frigibax, Brambleghast, Annihilape, Farigiraf, Dudunsparce, Lycanrock, Armarouge, and Ceruledge.

How to beat Eri in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet

Once you complete Star Barrage at the Fighting Crew base, you will have to face their leader, Eri, in a battle.

Eri will use five Pokémon:

  • Toxicroak – Level 55
  • Lucario – Level 55
  • Passimiano – Level 55
  • Annihilation – Level 56
  • Revavroom (Caph Starmobile) – Level 56

Toxicroak is a dual Potion and Fighting type, so using Flying, Ground, and Psychic moves will be your best option here.

Lucario is a dual Steel and Fighting type, so the ideal is to use Fighting, Fire and Earth moves against him.

Passimian’s type is just Fighting, so Fairy, Flying, and Psychic Pokémon will work best here, while Annihilape is a dual Ghost and Fighting type, so it uses Fairy, Flying, Ghost, and Psychic-type moves.

Our level 56 Armarouge managed to take out Toxicroak, Lucario, Passimian and Annihilape quickly, with the help of some potions, as it is a dual Fire and Psychic type.

The Caph Starmobile will be your biggest challenge, as the longer the fight goes on, the more its attack and speed will increase, resulting in one-hit shots when it finally lands a hit.

The Caph Revavroom shares the same weaknesses as Fighting, as its type is specific to this Fighting Crew’s base. So, Fairy, Flying, and Psychic types will be effective in defeating Eri’s Caph Starmobile Revavroom. We also recommend Terastalizing a Pokémon here, or during the previous Annihilape fight to prepare it.

We also recommend bringing plenty of potions and revives to take on Eri, as Caph Revavroom can be particularly deadly.

Once you’ve defeated Toxicroak, Lucario, Passimian, Annihilape, and Caph Starmobile, you’ll have successfully defeated Eri and cleared Team Star’s Fighting Crew base.

In addition to receiving Eri’s 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, Atticus or Ortega next? Or maybe you want to continue with Victory Road or Path of Legends? The world is your cloister!
