Rental teams can allow Pokemon Scarlet and Violet trainers to succeed in Series 1 with little effort. The main benefit of using them is that you don’t have to raise the pocket monsters yourself. All you do is borrow someone else’s ready-made team, and the whole process takes just a minute.
This is pretty handy and immensely useful for someone who wants to get into competitive battles.
You can use rental teams in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet by doing the following:
- Open the poke portal.
- Choose Battle Stadium.
- Select rental teams.
- Select Borrow Combat Teams.
- Enter the ID of the team you want to use.
This list highlights some great teams for players to consider.

Taiwan Regional Champ Rental Team and 4 others to use in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet Series 1 (January 2023)
1) San Diego Regional Champion Rental Team
Team ID: C6221L
The first Pokemon team to highlight, Scarlet and Violet, comes from San Diego Regional winner Jiseok Lee. Many of the Pocket Monsters used here performed some well in the tournament.
Here’s everything you need to know about this team:
- Baxcalibur: Loaded dice make Icicle Spear hit five times more consistently
- Garganacl: The Salt Heal attack and Purifying Salt ability are the main reasons to use it against other types of rock
- Gholdengo: Has consistently been the most used Pokemon in the Scarlet and Violet metagame
- Meowscarada: Always able to crit with Flower Trick, while Knock Off and Sucker Punch are incredibly useful Dark Moves
- Mimikyu: Has a default set while still possessing a useful stealth ability.
- Tauros Paldean Water: Strong physical attacker
Interestingly, half of the team has a priority move and 5/6 of them use shooters.
2) Taiwan Regional Champ Loan Team
Team ID: VCRS64
This team won the Taiwan Regional 2023 for Tseng Yan-rong, and they play the infamous Murkrow. Competitive Pokemon Scarlet and Violet players should know that this Dark/Flying type has seen tons of use in Double Battles. It has an excellent utility movepool to use alongside Prankster to ensure it comes first, as well as Evolite to make it deceptively bulky.
The other five pocket monsters also hit incredibly hard. They will have no problem moving at first as Tailwind increases their speed and removes a major disadvantage associated with most of them.
3) Flamigo Gimmick Rental Team
Team ID: 4PA5BV
Wolfe Glick fans should recognize this rental team as it made him the #1 player in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet for a brief moment. Tatsugiri and dondozo are the usual staples, but there’s a twist.
Tatsugiri with Toxic Orb quickly passes out, allowing Flamigo to turn on. Flamigo’s Costar ability makes it possible to copy Dondozo’s +2 stat boosts into:
- Sp. Atk
- Sp. defence
This is a pretty solid gimmick that works better than you’d think. The rest of this Pokemon Scarlet and Violet rental team is pretty much self-explanatory. Annihilape hits incredibly hard, Cetitan can be very dangerous, and Maushold benefits from his solid utility moves here.
4) Ranked Battles #1 for Season 1 Rental Team
Team ID: 4M62VC
This is another popular team of Naoto Mizobuch that did exceptionally well in the first season of Pokemon Scarlet and Violet. The iconic duo of Tatsugiri and Dondozo are significant parts of this team and a testament to the immense success of their gimmicks in VGC.
Other popular options are used here, with the fanciest Volcarona being the bulkiest. Using Flame Body, Rage Powder, and Rock Helm is a devilishly clever way to punish physical attackers who rely on contact moves.
