How to get Pokemon out of trees in Scarlet & Violet

As mentioned before, there are two ways to go about doing this. If you’re just looking to knock down a singular ‘Mon then it’s quite easy. All you need to do is target lock on the creature you’re looking to battle and then toss a Pokeball at it.

You can do this by holding ZL to enter aiming mode and then pressing ZR when you’re ready to kick things off. Doing this will automatically trigger a fight so it’s best to be prepared well before you start aiming.

All it takes from there is using that Dash and slamming into the tree that you’re hoping to shake. After contact, all of the hidden gems will come raining down and you’ll have your pick of the lot.
