Lance's Pokemon Are 10 Levels Higher

When you face Lance once more, his Pokemon will have gained 10 more levels. Make sure your Pokemon are at the same level or higher to stand a fighting chance against Lance's Dragon Types.

Electric Pokemon Recommended for Your First Pokemon

Lance's first three Pokemon - Seadra, Aerodactyl, and Gyarados - are all weak against Electric Type Pokemon. Start the battle with a strong Jolteon or your powered up partner Pokemon Pikachu.

Recommended Electric Pokemons

PokemonDescription
Jolteon IconJolteonElectric Pokemon exceling in speed and agility. Jolteon will have a high chance to attack before its target and possibly take them out in a single strike when paired with a powerful Electric attack.
Starmie IconStarmieAlthough Starmie does not match with Electric type moves, it's high agility will give him a good chance to strike first. If it has learned Thunderbolt and some Ice Type moves, it can take down Lance's roster.

Use Pokemon Using Ice Moves

Since majority of Lance's Pokemons are Dragon type, using an Ice move on them will deal substantial damage. Using Pokemons such as Articuno and Lapras is highly recommended when facing him.

Recommended Ice Pokemons

PokemonDescription
Lapras IconLaprasPowerful Ice type Pokemon. Lapras can take down most Dragon type Pokemon in a single blast of its Ice Beam, thanks to the x4 damage multiplier against Dragon types,
Articuno IconArticunoHigh-performance legendary Pokemon. Using Ice Beam or Blizzard will be able to wipe out most enemies in a single hit. However, these moves will not perform well against Gyarados. Be sure to keep Articuno in the latter position in your party.
Cloyster IconCloysterHas one of the highest defence in Ice Pokemons, and can take on decent amounts damages before going down. The Aurora Beam, learnable by leveling up, will deal sufficient damage in this battle.

Using Partner Pokemon

Pikachu will be an effective ally in this battle and though Eevee has an Electric Type move, if not leveled properly, it may not dish out the same damage Pikachu does.

PokemonDescription
Pikachu IconPikachuYour partner Pikachu will shine in the first part of the fight. With Pikachu's Electric Type moves, there's a high chance it can Seadra, Aerodactyl & Charizard in one hit.
Eevee IconEeveeEevee can deal Electric Type damage with "Buzzy Buzz" but it may not be as critical as Pikachu's Thunderbolt.

vs. Lance Play Tips

Use Pokemon with Electric Move As Your First Pokemon

Using a Pokemon with an Electric move as your first batter-up is highly recommended as Lance's first three Pokemon are weak to this type.

Bulldoze with Ice Pokemon

You will be able to pulverize through the rest of the party through Pokemon with powerful Ice moves. Keeping one Pokemon with a powerful Ice move will grant you some flexibility for facing other Elite Fours and the Champion. It is recommended that you take a powerful Ice Pokemon when facing the Elite Four.

Take Enemies Down Before They Use Hyper Beam

Many Pokemon in Lance's party has the ability to use the powerful Hyper Beam move. This powerful move may be able to wipe out your entire party when used in conjunction. Take your enemies out with Ice & Electric moves before they get a chance.
