Iron Treads is a massive Pokémon. It will be a Ground and Steel-type, making it weak against Fire, Water, Fighting, and Ground-type attacks. It will be resistant against Normal, Flying, Psychic, Bug, Rock, Dragon, Steel, and Fairy-type moves, giving you a handful of options to focus on to defeat this Pokémon. We would recommend using Fighting or Water-types, but if you have a Pokémon that can use Fire-type moves, this would be a good way to take advantage of Iron Treads’ Steel-type.

Like the other Titan Pokémon, Iron Treads will have a second phase. Once you defeat it, the Pokémon will roll away to the south of your current position, and it will eat a herb to power itself up. We recommend using this time for your Pokémon to rest and recover their strength. In the next battle, Arven will join with a Scovillain, which is super-effective against Iron Treads.

After this battle, you will have defeated the Quaking Ground Titan, and you can progress through the next beat in the Path of Legends story.
