Scarlet & Violet arc

Asado Desert appeared in PASV02 and PASV03 as the first stop on Violet and Arven's quest to find the Herba Mystica. In the desert, they encountered two Paradox Pokémon, a Great Tusk and an Iron Treads, the latter which they identified as the Quaking Earth Titan due to its size. Despite having some initial success against it with Violet's Fuecoco, Iron Treads ultimately proved too strong, so Arven suggested they retreat for the time being, which Violet accepted.
