The Pokemon Scarlet and Violet False Dragon Titan is located in Casseroya Lake's Northeast Island, and appears if you interact with the orange Tatsugiri. The False Dragon Titan itself is a giant Dondozo, and the two Pokemon work together to lure in prey, with Tatsugiri acting as bait so the False Dragon Titan can leap in to attack. Read on for more info on how to find Dondozo and Tatsugiri, as well as what you can do to prepare for the boss fight with the False Dragon Titan in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet.
Pokemon Scarlet and Violet False Dragon Titan location
To find the False Dragon Titan in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet, do the following:
- Head to the island marked in the Northeast of Casseroya Lake
- Head to the Southernmost coastline of that Island
- Here you'll see an orange Tatsugiri that doesn't move and can't be battled in Let's Go mode
- Walk up to the Tatsugiri and press A to begin the first fight with the False Dragon Titan

It's worth doing this because beating the False Dragon will unlock one of the Pokemon Scarlet and Violet Koraidon and Miraidon abilities - specifically the ability to climb on surfaces, which is borderline essential if you're going after late-game collectibles like the Pokemon Scarlet and Violet Stakes and Shrines.
After beating Dondozo once, you'll have to find it again. This time, head to the biggest island in Casseroya Lake just to the West of you, and go to the North side. On the coastline, staring at the dark stone cliff, you'll find the orange Tatsugiri again. Interact with it once more to start the next stage of the encounter.
False Dragon Titan Dondozo and Tatsugiri weaknesses
All Titan fights are split into two halves - once where you fight it alone, and another time when you fight it with Arven. However, this particular Titan fight actually has a bonus third encounter where you have to fight the Tatsugiri too (though still with Arven), beginning immediately after you beat Dondozo the second time. Your Pokemon should be level 38 at least, and the two Pokemon have the following weaknesses for you to exploit:
- Dondozo (Water-type) weaknesses: Grass, Electric
- Tatsugiri (Water/Dragon-type) weaknesses: Dragon, Fairy
Once you've beaten that, just go through a quick cutscene with Arven and you'll have access to the climb ability for your Koraidon or Miraidon respectively.
