What Are Strong Foe Pokemon?
Powerful Pokemon In Mystery Dungeons
Strong foes are powerful Pokemon that you may encounter in the mystery dungeon you're entering. They're random encounters so you may or may not see them in your adventure.
Marked With Yellow Crown Triangle Icon
Strong foes are marked with an inverted yellow triangle icon that's emblazoned with a black crown. This is how you identify a strong foe Pokemon.
Can Be Recruited Into Party
If you encounter and defeat a strong foe Pokemon, there's a chance you can recruit them into your party. Make sure you have their Camp ready so you can bring them home to your HQ.Check Out How To Recruit Pokemon!
Have High HP & Strong Attacks
Strong foe Pokemon are very durable, with high HP and attack power. If you're specifically hunting them down, be prepared with recovery items and items for debuffing.
Can Spawn As Shiny Pokemon
There's a chance that strong foe Pokemon you encounter will be shiny. Since shiny Pokemon are rare and also very random, it may be hard to encounter them in the game.Check Out Shiny Pokemon List Here!
How To Beat Strong Foe Pokemon
Bring Pokemon With Type Advantage
Always check the strong foe Pokemon's weakness before going into a mystery dungeon. Then counter these and bring Pokemon with a type advantage to make supereffective attacks.
Recruit More Pokemon In Party
Before facing off with a strong foe Pokemon, try to recruit more Pokemon in the earlier levels of the dungeon. This will give you more attackers or supporters during the fight.Check Out Recuiting Pokemon Details!
Use Status Debuffs
Items such that cause debuffs such as Sleep or Petrify will help you greatly in the fight. This can slow down the strong foe Pokemon's attacks so you can do more damage before their turn.Check Out All Status Condition List!
Use Damaging Items
Items that can cause damage such as Blast Seeds can be very helpful, especially if you're not dealing enough damage. Always have a couple in your toolbox to help you in case you encounter a strong foe Pokemon.
