Path of Legends

Arven, with the words PATH OF LEGENDS on screen

One of the three main storyline arcs is Path of Legends, and it involves tracking down giant Titan Pokémon scattered throughout the Paldea region in order to claim the powerful Herba Mystica herbs that they guard. You’ll do this to help out Arven, and you’ll eventually uncover more of his motives and his story as you progress.

The primary reward for taking down these Titans comes in the form of upgrades to your Koraidon/Miraidon’s movement abilities, which is very, very helpful for getting across the Paldea region. Of course, you also get to help Arven out, which might not seem that great at first, but as the story continues, you’ll probably grow a bit more motivated to help him with his cause.

In-game map showing where the five Titans are

You can fight the five Titan Pokémon in pretty much any order you like, but there’s definitely a recommended order to follow, which focuses on taking down the lowest-level Titan Pokémon first and gradually working your way up to the highest-level Titan Pokémon. As there are just five Titan Pokémon to take down, you’re encouraged to take on the other storyline arcs along the way instead of just focusing on Path of Legends.

Spoiler-Free Recommended Order

If you’re looking for a spoiler-free recommended order for the Path of Legends storyline, which doesn’t reveal exactly which Pokémon you’ll fight but will show the primary type. This table also shows you which power ups you get for your Koraidon/Miraidon, which should hopefully be helpful to you in planning.

Stony Cliff Titan
(unlocks dash)
Open Sky Titan
(unlocks swimming)
Lurking Steel Titan
(unlocks high jump)
Quaking Earth Titan
(unlocks gliding)
False Dragon Titan
(unlocks wall climbing)

Hopefully this gives you an idea of roughly what level you should be around while fighting against the Titans! As you can see, there are quite a few jumps in levels, so it would be wise to take on some of the objectives in other storyline arcs as you go through this one.

That being said, you can find details on all of the Titans, as well as a general path to get to each of them, down below, with more detail in their corresponding pages. You can click the links in the table above to view more information about those specific Titans and how to get there, or you can also find links by scrolling further down the page, although do note that the fights and Pokémon will be spoiled if you keep scrolling.

Titan Level: 16

Path to Stony Cliff Titan

The first of the Titans you’re likely to track down is the Stony Cliff Titan, and it can be found by leaving the east gate from Mesagoza, as Arven recommends. This takes you onto South Province (Area Three).

You should find the Stony Cliff Titan on the rocks near the cliffside in the area marked on the map above.

Path to Lurking Steel Titan

Getting to the Lurking Steel Titan is a bit of a jaunt, requiring you to head through the badlands of eastern Paldea. You can find it in a pit at the location marked “1” on the map above, and then it will flee through some tunnels, requiring you to chase it. It will eventually appear at the location marked “2” on the map above.

Titan Level: 45

Path to Quaking Earth Titan

The Quaking Earth Titan can be found in the Asado Desert in western Paldea, in the far western portion of it. You can find it rolling around near the area marked “1” on the map above, and you’ll have to fight it there. It will then retreat to the area marked “2” on the map above, where you’ll have to fight it a second time with Arven’s help.

The Pokémon you fight depends on which version you’re playing.

Path to False Dragon Titan

A large Tatsugiri that you need to talk to saying 'Taiiitan'

In order to get to the final Titan, the False Dragon Titan, you’re going to need to head on over to Casseroya Lake in the northwestern part of Paldea. There are a bunch of Tatsugiri flopping around on that island, making various noises. There’s one in particular you’ll need to talk to, and it’s on the southern tip of the easternmost island. It is a bit larger than the other Tatsugiri and says “Taitaaan!” above its head.

Talk to the Tatsugiri and you’ll witness it get swallowed up by a massive Pokémon, which you’ll have to fight!

After defeating Dondozo once, you’ll have to chase it to the location marked “2” on the map above. You’ll fight it for a second time alongside Arven, but then after defeating Dondozo, you’ll have to fight against the true False Dragon Titan: Tatsugiri!

Enemy Level Range: 58–63

After you’ve taken down all five of the Titans, regardless of their order, you’ll need to return to Poco Path Lighthouse and investigate the Pokémon Lab there that only Arven has access to.

Go there, and after some dialogue and discussion with the Professor, you’ll need to fight against Arven to make sure you’re ready to challenge Area Zero.

You are challenged by Pokémon Trainer Arven!

And that concludes the Path of Legends storyline arc! In order to continue the storyline of the game, as just mentioned, you’ll need to complete the other two.

Once you’ve done that, you’ll be able to start up the final endgame storyline arc: The Way Home, which will take you down into Area Zero as per the Professor’s request.
