What level should you be for Team Star’s Schedar Squad in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet?

How much do you need to prepare for this fight?

The Treasure Hunt has begun and Pokémon Scarlet and Violet students are roaming the region of Paldea looking for Pokémon to catch, gym leaders to defeat, and Team Star grunts to send back to school. There are many trainers in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet’s world that will try to defeat your left and right, and some of the most entertaining out there are the Team Star enemies. One of the first crew you will defeat in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet is the Schedar Squad, which boasts very powerful Fire-type Pokémon. So, what level should your Pokémon have to defeat Team Star’s Schedar Squad in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet? Here is the answer.

Minimum level to fight Team Star’s Schedar Squad in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet

Though Mela, Schedar Squad’s leader, has a powerful lineup, the grunts and their Pokémon are relatively weak. Players will have to defeat 30 Pokémon in the raid against Team Star’s Schedar Squad, and most of them will quickly lose if they fight in a type-mismatch. The three Pokémon you bring to send out and fight will just need to be either Water, Rock, or Ground-type, and the quick, auto battles will always result in a swift victory.

Luckily, it is relatively hard to be under-leveled for the battle with the Schedar Squad grunts, as we used a level 13 Klawf alongside a level 22 Quaxwell and a level 17 Nacli, and the Klawf only lost around a third of its health. This means that the minimum recommended level your Pokémon should be for the Team Star Schedar Squad battle should be level 15. If your Pokémon are at least level 15, defeating the grunts should be relatively easy.

However, if you think about the battle that will follow with Mela, and that her Pokémon are level 27 and 26, you should bring at least two Water or Rock-type Pokémon that have level 25, otherwise, the battle will be very hard.
