Have a Versatile Team of Pokemon Types

Within the Dungeon are different types of enemies. Your team should be versatile enough to be able to counter them as you go up the tower.

Recommended to Have Dragon Attacks

Recommended to Have Dragon Attacks

Since Rayquaza and a number of enemies within the tower are Dragon types, having Pokemon with Dragon-type moves is recommended. They don't have to be dragon types.

Recruit As Much Pokemon to Your Team

Tips to Defeat Rayquaza

Rayquaza Will Mega Evolve

Rayquaza Will Mega Evolve

Deal enough damage to Rayquaza and it will Mega Evolve. It will become stronger and will activate its Strong Wind ability that negates Flying-type weaknesses.

Use All Dodge Orb at the Start

Use All Dodge Orb at the Start

At the start of the battle, immediately use an All Dodge Orb to boost the evasion of your team. This will help you against Rayquaza's high-damage multi-target moves.

Use Bounce or Surround Wand

Use Bounce or Surround Wand

A strong current can sweep through the floor, moving your Pokemon from their position. Make use of Bounce or Surround Wand to help you reposition close to Rayquaza again.

Stun / Petrify Rayquaza

Stun / Petrify Rayquaza

When you're blown away, you can take this time to use items that can stun or petrify Rayquaza. This will stop it from spamming its long-distance attacks.

Do Not Stay on One Side

Do Not Stay on One Side

Having your team on just one side will put you in danger of Rayquaza's Hyper Beam and Dragon Ascent. It's best to spread out the team to ensure that not much will be hit by the beam when it's used.

Make Use of Link Moves

Increase your DPS by using Link Moves. The best combinations are often Buff + Attack moves. Don't forget to set them at the Gulpin Link Shop before going in the dungeon.
