After beating Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, you can rematch the Team Star leaders at their bases, as they’ve been rebranded as Star Training Centers.

In addition to rebattling the leaders, you can also take part in optional autobattle challenges again for LP.


Repeating Team Star challenges

By ringing the bell at the entrance to the Team Star bases, you can repeat the original Team Star challenges that you did before. Rather than K.O-ing 30 Pokémon in 10 minutes, you’ll need to take out 50 Pokémon. According to Serebii.net, the faster you do this, the more League Points (LP) you’ll get as a reward.

We finished the challenge in two minutes and 54 seconds and we got 7,541 LP — quite a lot for just throwing Pokémon around.

If you can’t quite remember how this works, then allow us to refresh you. The first three Pokémon in your team will need to take down 50 Pokémon in autobattles only. If your Pokémon get too weak, you can heal them using Clive by the entrance or the vending machines scattered around the campus. That said, you’ll either want a type advantage or you’ll want to be very overleveled.

After completing the challenge, your Pokémon will be healed. Completing this challenge will not immediately start the Team Star leader battle. (You’ll need to go talk to them directly in order to battle them.)


Team Star rematch battles

Once per day, you can rematch the Team Star leaders at their respective bases. Thankfully, they no longer have Starmobiles, so it’s just a straightforward battle. (They don’t even Terastilize.)

They do give a good amount of money and are pretty easy to beat, since they all specialize in specific types, so if you’re grinding for extra money, consider visiting each member once a day.

Once again, here are the weaknesses for each type:

  • Dark: bug, fairy, fighting
  • Fire: ground, rock, water
  • Poison: ground, bug, psychic
  • Fairy: steel, poison
  • Fighting: flying, psychic
