Water/Ground/Rock Types Are Recommended


All of Mela's Pokemon are Fire Types, which are weak to Water/Ground/Rock type moves. Use these moves to gain the advantage in the battle.

Beware Of Drought For Water-Type Moves

Mela's first Pokemon Torkal has the Drought Ability, which causes the weather to be clear for 5 turns. The power of Water Type will be halved. Either try to survive for 5 turns or defeat it quickly using moves it is weak against.

Star Mobile Is Powerful


The Star Mobile (Revavroom) has a large HP pool and has the Speed Boost Ability, which increases its speed with every turn. It also has the powerful move Overheat. Defeat it as fast as you can!
