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 Ability Drought For Water Types

Mela's first Pokemon Torkal has the Ability Drought, which causes the sunlight to be harsh 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.

Starmobile Is Powerful

Over Heat

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