Can You Catch Iron Treads?

Quaking Earth Titan Can Be Caught After Path of Legends Battle

Donphan Titan Location

Iron Treads is a Titan Pokemon you will battle in the Path of Legends storyline in Pokemon Violet. After you defeat it and get a Badge from Arven, you will be able to battle it again; only this time you will be able to catch it!

You can find the Quaking Earth Titan again by going through the desert that is located to the west of Cascarrafa City. Once you interact with it the battle will start immediately, so make sure that you are prepared!

Will Not Respawn If Knocked Out

Do take note that Quaking Earth will not respawn if you accidentally knock it out during the rematch. It is recommended to turn off autosave and save the game before starting the battle so you can just reset the game in case you defeat it.
