Pokemon Scarlet &amp; Violet: How to Catch Ogerpon and Use the Masks


The latest Teal Mask DLC in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet, is an exciting opportunity for players to find new and exciting Pokemon.
Ogerpon is a rare Pokemon that is being featured in the game.
In this article, we’ll help you understand how to capture Ogerpon and use its marks.

In Teal Mask, the latest DLC in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet, players can explore new places endlessly. One of them is a small land, inspired by rural Japan. This is also where you will come across the legendary Pokemon, Ogerpon. The first half of the DLC actually revolves around Ogerpon and learning more about it. This is a grass-type mask Pokemon that players are willing to capture and add to their collection. In this article, we’ll guide you through the process of catching Ogerpon and using its masks. 

Catching Ogerpon in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet

Catching Ogerpon involves a pretty straightforward process. All you need to do is follow the given storyline of the Teal Mask. After you defeat the ‘Loyal Three’, and retrieve the stolen masks of Ogerpon, there will come a point when players will find their way to the Dreaded Den. This will lead to a battle between you and Kieran. After this, you’ll also have to come face-to-face with Ogerpon. 

Ogerpon Terastalized


Given that it's a mask type Pokemon, Ogerpon is bound to change its form two to three times during your battle with it. Fighting against it will also take you deeper into the Teal Mask story. After defeating all four versions of Ogerpon, you must throw your Pokeball at it to capture it. If you have a free slot, it will join you in your party, or go the Pokemon boxes otherwise. 

The following are the four masks you will need to defeat in order to bag this Pokemon:

  • The Teal Mask: Grass (Weak to Fire, Ice, Flying, Poison, and Bug)

  • The Hearthflame Mask: Fire (Weak to Water, Ground, and Rock)

  • The Wellspring Mask: Water (Weak to Grass and Electric)

  • The Cornerstone Mask: Rock (Weak to Water, Grass, Ground, Fighting, and Steel)

After you obtain Ogerpon, you will also obtain its four masks, making it a Grass/Fire type, Water/Fire type, and Grass/rock type, respectively. After terastallizing it, the Emobody Aspect ability will also be available and impact Ogerpon and its different forms in the following ways:

  • Teal Mask - Speed stat is boosted

  • Wellspring Mask - Sp. Def stat is boosted.

  • Hearthflame Mask - Attack stat is boosted.

  • Cornerstone Mask - Defense stat is boosted
