Pokemon Scarlet and Violet series has different Terastral mechanics from the previous series and the player who plays Pokemon competitively will consider the new mechanics more seriously but casual players can also learn a basic of Terastral mechanics. One of the most basic terms that are used in combat in Pokemon is STAB and it is important to learn how STAB works in the game to get different combat bonuses.
In this guide, we’ll tell you what is STAB and how it works in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet.
STAB is one of the game’s most useful mechanics in combat and only very few players of Pokemon actually know about this Mechanic. The players who play Pokemon games Competitively will know about the STAB mechanic. The casual players of Pokemon games can also learn the basic concept of STAB to gain advantages in the battles. STAB in Pokemon is an abbreviation that stands for Same-Type Attack Bonus. Now, this mechanic is very useful when it comes to combat in the game and as players take on different levels of Pokemon in the Battles, they can utilize the attacks of their Pokemon to get additional attack bonuses.
How STAB Works
STAB is a mechanic used in combat in Pokemon games that stands for Same-Type Attack Bonus which actually means that if you use an attack in the battle and that attack is the same type of your Pokemon who is doing the attack, you will get a slight attack bonus on the damage. This will give you a 1.5x multiplier on top of the original Power that the attack has. Meaning, if you have selected a Fire Type Pokemon and you are using an attack that is Fire Type as well, the base attack power of that attack will increase by 1.5x. So, if you are dealing with an enemy with 100 damage, using the same type of attack will increase the 100 base attack power to 150 base attack power, giving you an attack bonus.
The STAB mechanic can also be used on the move which is the same type as the Tera Type of your Pokemon. Meaning, if you have a Pokemon whose Tera Type is Grass Type but originally, it’s a Fire Type Pokemon and you have a Grass Type attack then changing the Tera Type of Pokemon to Grass Type and then using the Grass Type Attack will also give you the 1.5x attack bonus, dealing more damage to the enemy.
Players can teach different types of Attacks to their Pokemon as they level them up and evolve them. Unlocking new and different Tera Types of Pokemon will let you use most of the same types of attacks and ultimately give the attack bonus. Players can use all of these techniques in the story of the game to master the battles and then if the players want to play the game competitively then they will not find it hard to compete with other competitors.

By doing this, players will be exhausting the Budgets of Zanzo.
Players will go through different choruses of Zanzo where he will bring out his different machines that you have to defeat in order to defund Zanzo. In the first chorus, you will get to fight the normal enemies. Defeat them to move on to the next chorus where you will get to fight the first major machine named “PGR-0101”. This machine has a variety of attacks as well as a shield. The best way to defeat it is to call Macaron who will destroy the shield of the machine and you will get the opening where you will be able to land the combos with your attack. Do the perfect timing combos to recharge your special attack. Do the Special Attack along with calling Peppermint to quickly defeat it.
The Budget of Zanzo greatly decreases after surviving the second chorus in the simulator. Later in the chorus, you will get to fight the enemies with the shield that you can break by calling Peppermint as well as Macaron. Use Macaron to break the shield of some enemies and for the rest of the enemies call peppermint. Take out the enemies one by one to encounter the next technology of Zanzo.

Dodge the green marks on the ground to dodge the lava balls and use the zipline to move to other areas. You will make your way to the Gift Basket where the last fight takes place. You will get to fight the same enemies as before where you will have to call Macaron to take their shields down and then attack them with your combo attacks and special attacks. However, the main thing that you want to focus on during the fight is falling lava balls.
Make sure to dodge the green areas on the ground to dodge the lava. Fight the enemies by calling Peppermint and Macaron to take them out. Once you have defeated the enemies, you will see the lens from earlier in the fight. You need to attack the lens which will start a sequence. Complete the sequence by pressing the buttons on the screen to start a cutscene. Zanzo will get defunded in the cutscene which leads Chai to defeat Zanzo and retrieve the USB which contains the Data about SPECTRA.
Hi-Fi Rush: How to Defeat Rekka
Hi-Fi Rush is full of action along with a taste of countless beats. Players will get to explore the city of Vandelay where they will get to uncover cool technologies as well as fight different enemies. As players progress through the game, they will get to fight different bosses that have only one purpose, to recall (Kill) the defected which is Chai, our main character. One of the main bosses that players will get to fight is Rekka.
In this guide, we’ll tell you how to defeat Rekka in Hi-Fi Rush.
Rekka’s both arms are robotic and she will be doing a lot of punching attacks as well as dashing attack combos with them. The Punching attacks are easier to dodge but if you get hit by one of the dashing combo attacks, you will be hit by the rest of the combo as well so, try to dodge it by looking at the ground. There will be a range meter and the direction of where Rekka will be dashing. Stay away from the range and the direction and let her complete her combo so, you don’t get in her way while she is doing the combo.
To deal damage to Rekka, hit her with your attack combos and try to sync them with the beat to deal extra damage and charge your special attack quickly. Once the special attack is charged, use it to deal a decent amount of damage to her. You can also call Peppermint during the fight to deal more damage to her. Once you have lowered her first bar, she will get stunned and you will get to deplete her first bar of HP. After that, she will remove the cover of the floor to absorb the electric current on her robotic arms.
Now, she will be able to land the punches with electric current. Punches can be dodged easily but she can trick you with the moves. She will also be doing the ground slam with the electric current that has a bit of range. If you are inside the ground slam range then you will get electrocuted which will take a lot of your HP. Try to maintain a distance from her and don’t go to remove the cover of the arena because it will give you damage as well. She will also do the slam attack on the electric wires which will generate shock waves in the arena and in order to dodge that, you will have to double jump and grab one of the magnets in the air.
She will create an energy shield around her which can be easily broken by calling peppermint. Other than dodging her moves, you can easily damage her by hitting her with the combo and calling Peppermint. Once you have depleted the second bar of her HP, you will get to complete a sequence of dodging the pipes that are thrown by Rekka. Dodge the Pipes by moving left and right and after the sequence, you can just use your special attack on her and call peppermint at the same time to deal great damage to her. She will be using pipes to do the slam attacks which can be dodged easily. She will also use her arms to grab you so, try to avoid it by doing a double jump until she stops trying to grab you. Other than that, just keep doing your combo attacks and calling peppermint to deal damage to her.
After depleting the third bar of her HP, the arena will turn red and she will begin to do the dashing combo with electric arms. You can just keep your distance until she has done the combo. After that, use your special attack if charged and call peppermint to deal damage. She will also be using the rest of her attacks so, just dodge them and keep calling peppermint to deplete her HP gradually. Once you get close to her, do the combo and land the perfect sync to stun her and do the special attack to defeat her.
