Welcome to the Pokemon: The Teal Mask walkthrough!
The Teal Mask is the first part of a two part expansion for Pokemon: Scarlet and Violet. The base game of Scarlet and or Violet are required to play The Teal Mask.
This guide below will walk you through the main story of the DLC. It is not very long nor is it very difficult.
The Teal Mask adds 100 new Pokemon to Scarlet and Violet. The actual Kitakami Poke-Dex is 200, but 100 of those are carried over from the base game.
Version Exclusive Pokemon
Trading Pokemon Online
There are several Pokemon that can only be obtained via trading. In addition to the region exclusives, some Pokemon will only evolve once they are traded.
If you don’t have a partner to trade with, you can enter certain codes when searching for a trade partner in order to get what you’re looking for. It’s not a perfect system, but it is very effective.
If the other player is not offering the correct Pokemon, just back out and search again.

Travel to the entrance hall of the Naranja Academy and speak to Briar. She’ll be standing in the lobby as soon as you enter.
During this conversation, Jacq will appear and upgrade your Pokédex to include the Kitakami region.
When you’re ready to go to Kitakami, speak to Briar and she’ll take you there.
Once you’re there, you’ll be given a task to go Mossui.

The next day, you’ll have your objective explained to you. You’ll need to go find three signboards. You’ll also receive the Roto-Stick from the Caretaker. This is just a selfie stick for picture taking.

This time, take the eastern exit out of Mossui. Follow the path east and then north to reach Kitakami Hall.
If you look to your right as you exit the town, you can see Jacq under a tree. Speak to him and he’ll treat you to a picnic. He will give you an egg during this picnic. The egg will hatch into one of the three Sinnoh region starters. It will be random who you get.

If not, go further in until you unlock the fast travel point. We don’t need this now, but we will later on in the story.
After you get the fast travel icon on the map here, turn around and go back to where the path split and take the path that leads east.

Before heading in, it’ll be time for another battle against Kieran. He’ll heal up your Pokemon before the battle.

Next, you’ll have to play a game where you have to run around collecting as many berries as you can. You’ll need to pop balloons to reveal berries. Bring the berries back to the matching color table and deposit them.
After the game, you’ll spot a mysterious Pokemon in the festival. Go follow it.
After it runs off, you’ll automatically acquire the Teal Mask.
With that over, return to the entrance of the festival and speak to Kieran to tell him you’re ready to go.
Exit the community center to progress the story.
After speaking with Carmine outside of the community center, head back to Kieran’s house. Speak to Grandpa about the mask.
Listen to Grandpa’s story about the origins of the ogre and then return to the eastern exit of town to find Kieran at the Poke Mart.
Speak to him and he’ll tell you find the third and final signboard.
The third signboard can be found in Paradise Barrens which is to the northwest. To reach it, exit Mossui via the western exit and follow the path until it splits.

After you get your final picture, return to the community center and go inside. Interact with the double doors again to advance the story to the next day.
On the next day, you’ll be told to meet Carmine at her house. So head over there.
During the conversation, you’ll be told to head to the Crystal Pool in order to track down the Crystal Cluster. The cluster is needed in order to repair the Teal Mask.
The Crystal Pool is found in the very center of the map.
If you got the Infernal Pass fast travel point pointed out earlier when we were headed to the Dreaded Den, you’ll be able to fly to Infernal Pass. All you have to do then is follow the pass north and then east.
Continue on through the Infernal Pass until you come to a familiar red structure and stairs.
Go up the stairs.
Get to the center and speak with Carmine.
During your conversation, you’ll be interrupted by a Milotic.
Battle it and defeat it. It will be at Lv. 73. You’ll be unable to catch it.
The Milotic will drop a Crystal Cluster after beating it.
Now, fly back to Mossui and go to Carmine’s house to speak with Grandpa.
Grandpa will tell you that Kieran has run off with the mask. So now it’s time to go to Loyalty Plaza to find Kieran.
Speak to Kieran and he will once again want to battle you.

Beat Kieran and he’ll give you back the mask. Afterwards, the Loyal Three will appear and run off. You’ll need to chase them down by heading to Kitakami Hall.
Once there, go the front of the temple and speak with the Caretaker.
After the conversation travel to the Dreaded Den. You get close by flying to the Infernal Pass.
Reach the Dreaded Den and you’ll have to battle against Munkidori at Lv. 70. Munkidori is weak to Ghost, Ground and Dark type attacks.
You won’t be able to catch Munkidori yet, so knock it out.
Afterwards, the three will run off and you’ll return the mask to Ogerpon
With all of that taken care of, Ogerpon will now follow you and it’ll be time to head back to Mossui.
As soon as you get there, you’ll need to speak to people around town to gather information on the Loyal Three.
Speak to the kid right of the community center.
Speak to the woman behind the community center.
Speak to the man near the western exit of town.
After speaking with all three NPCs, you’ll group back up and decide to track down the Loyal Three.
Their locations will be added to your map.
- Munkidori is to the southwest at Misteria Pond
- Fezandipiti is near the center at Fellhorn Gorge
- Okidogi is to the northwest at Paradise Barrens
First up, let’s take down Munkidori. Take the western exit of town and head through Apple Hills. Go left when the path splits at the two signs and make your way southwest.
You’ll be able to battle against the following trainers on your way to Munkidori:
- Kazuki the Festival Boy
- Mankey Lv. 62
You still won’t be able to catch the Loyal Three, so just focus on beating them.
Munkidori is weak to Ghost, Ground and Dark type attacks.
Next, fly to the Crystal Pool and head north. At the bottom of the stairs, go east until you come to a set of ladders. Jump down or ride your mount down and continue east to Fezandipiti.
When you reach it, it’ll fly into the nearby cave. Follow it.
You’ll come across a trainer inside of the cave:
- Yoshino the Festival Girl
- Goomy Lv. 63
Follow the path in the cave all the way down to the bottom until you reach an exit where Fezandipiti will be waiting.
Fezandipiti is weak to Psychic, Ground and Steel attacks.
After that battle, fly to Paradise Barrens head north.
Okidogi is weak to Ground, Flying and Psychic attacks.
With all three defeated, return to Mossui.
After the scene in town, travel back to the Dreaded Den.
It’ll be time once again to battle Kieran.
- Shiftry Lv. 71
- Gliscor Lv. 76
- Probopass Lv. 71
- Poliwrath Lv. 72
- Yanmega Lv. 72
- Dipplin Lv. 72
After the battle, it’ll be time to try to catch Ogerpon. Save your game and then interact with it.

- The Wellspring Mask
- Weak to Grass and Electric attacks.

Carmine will challenge you to a battle.

After the battle, return to the community center to speak with the Caretaker.
When all of the cutscenes wrap up, the main story of the Teal Mask will be complete!
With the story complete, you can now attempt to catch the Loyal Three.
All you have to do is return to the locations where you battled them individually. They’ll be there waiting for you. They won’t be labeled on your map like earlier, but they’ll be there.
Turn off the auto save feature and then save your game before battling them again. If you knock any of them out, quit out of the game and try again.
Pokédex entry #196 of the Kitakami Pokédex is a special form of Ursaluna. You can’t just go catch it or evolve Ursaring to get it either.
Instead, you need to speak to Perrin in Mossui just west of the community center near the exit of town. She will be taking photos with a camera.
Speak with her and she will task you with registering 150 different Pokemon in the Kitakami Pokédex. This is something you may have already done as 100 of the Pokemon are carried over from the base game in the new Pokédex.
Once have that done that, speak with her again and she will challenge you to a battle.
Afterwards, she’ll ask you to meet her in the Timeless Woods to the northeast.
Speak with her there several times and she will have you take pictures of 10 different wild Pokemon. Explore the forest and take the pictures. Once you have all 10, return to her and speak with her again.
Now, she’ll take you to the Ursaluna. You’ll need to battle it defeat. After the battle. make sure to select, “Catch.” It will be a guaranteed catch.
After that, return to Mossui and speak to Perrin again. She will give you a Hisuian Growlithe.
That’s A Wrap
With the Loyal Three and Bloodmoon Ursaluna captured, all that’s left to do now is to continue exploring Kitakami as you complete the new Pokedex.
