Where To Catch Skrelp in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet

Skrelp is a Scarlet exclusive that lives mostly in the North Paldean Sea, so you’ll need to swim on Koraidon to find one; you’ll want to Paralyze or put it to Sleep, lower its health, and use a few Dive Balls or Ultra Balls to catch it.

If you catch a few of them, you can trade them for Pokemon Violet exclusives or something else you want. Use Antidotes if it Poisons your team while you catch them and other sea faring wild Pokemon.
