Next up, make your way to the snow city of Montenevera. In the vicinity of the Pokemon Center, you’ll see a dude in sunglasses and a beige jacket. He’s standing next to a large pile of snow and, well, an Abomasnow. In other words, he stands out quite a bit; you can’t miss him. You can see where it is in the images below.

So, in order to begin Hyper Training in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet, you need to pay this guy Bottle Caps (or Golden Bottle Caps). In return, he can increase a stat of one of your Pokemon beyond what their usual limits are. In other words, you can over-train a selection of Pokemon to the point of them being terrifying beasts on the battlefield. As long as you have the Bottle Caps to do it, of course. You can keep track of their IVs and EVs once you unlock the IV Checker. The Hyper Training system itself is pretty simple. You give the guy the Caps and then select which stat of which Pokemon you want to increase.
