Ogre Oustin is a brand-new minigame that has been introduced in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet The Teal Mask.
In the minigame, which players will have to try during the main game, players have to pop balloons, which then reward the player with Mochi.
Players then take the Berries to color-coded bowls that are at the start of the course. Once Mochi has been deposited, players will then have to defend their pile from wild Greedant and Skwovet who will attempt to steal the Berries.
Ogre Oustin can be played in both single and multiplayer and features many rewards, including a special Shiny Munchlax.

Ogre Oustin Hard Mode Tips
Ogre Oustin on hard mode is one of the toughest challenges in modern Pokemon games. While it’s technically possible in single-player, from our testing, it’s incredibly difficult, and we highly recommend playing in Multiplayer.
We recommend that when playing in multiplayer, one player patrols the tables, protecting them from Pokemon while the other players collect.
Each player can collect 30 berries at once. Make sure you each have a full collection of berries before you return to the table, as this will make the Pokemon meter fill slower, making it slightly easier to defend. If you find yourself in trouble, you can always leave two players to defend while two players gather.
