Silver Trench - Battle Tips

Recommended Level: 63+

Being underleveled in the Silver Trench can easily wipe out your team. Enter when all of your team members are at least at Level 63. This will help you to survive being one or two-shotted by an enemy.

Recommended Pokemon: Electric & Dark

Since most of the enemies within the Dungeon are water-types, having an Electric Pokemon is recommended. Dark is also good to battle against Lugia at the end of the Dungeon.

Have Pokemon with Small Stomach & Squeeze Out

Surviving in the Silver Trench is easier with Pokemon with Small Stomach and Squeeze Out abilities. Small Stomach will help with Stamina Management while Squeeze Out will help with PP management.

Recommended Items to Bring

Recruit As Much Pokemon to Your Team

Recruit As Much Pokemon to Your Team

Having as many Pokemon in your team is a must since allies will help you attack enemies and spread the aggro from enemies. Cloyster and Starmie are great recruits!

Team Movement is Essential

Team Movement is Essential

The way you move your team across floors is essential. Do not be caught by enemy Pokemon at a narrow corridor. Always set up a perimeter of Pokemon when entering rooms. Entering the room solo is dangerous.

Watch Out for Pokemon with Multi-Hit Moves

Watch Out for Pokemon with Multi-Hit Moves

Don't get caught in a corridor because the Pokemon in this dungeon have linear multi-hit moves. Hydro Pump and Hyper Beam can easily wipe out your team!

Watch the Tail End of Your Team

Watch the Tail End of Your Team

Always be aware of the tail-end of your team. It's quite easy for enemy Pokemon to pick up those at the back of your team if you're not careful enough.

Lugia is actually Psychic/Flying type, not Psychic/Water like it's written on here.
