How to Fast Travel in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet

Pokemon Scarlet Violet Fast Travel cover

Fast Travel is one of the features that players can do, especially when traversing the massive land of Paldea in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet. It has existed in the previous games via the help of Pokémon that learned the Fly skill, and it was made easier with the recent addition of the Flying Taxi. In the latest game, another fast travel feature has been added that makes traversal much easier.

In this guide, we will talk about the methods of fast traveling in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet.

How to Fast Travel in Paldea

After taking a tour of the academy and visiting your very first Pokémon Center, you’ll then be able to unlock the fast travel feature via the Squawkabilly Flying Taxi. Simply open the map by pressing on the Y button, hover your pointer over to a Pokémon Center icon and choose the option to fast travel. Only Pokémon Centers that you have visited at least once can be fast traveled to, which are marked by a wing.

Another location that you can fast travel to are the tall towers that are scattered across Paldea. These towers have around 2 to 3 levels and they usually have a Gimmighoul Chest that you can catch or defeat at the top. Visiting these towers will put a wing marker on your map which will allow you to fast travel to it.

There are also the Ten Sights of Paldea that can be fast traveled to once you’ve visited their markers at least once.

Do I need a Pokémon that knows Fly?

No, the Squawkabillies got you covered. You no longer need a Pokémon that knows Fly nor do you need your Bike-mon to learn how to glide before being able to use the fast travel feature.
