Iron Moth, lowers the Special Defense of its opponent by using [Acid Spray] and increases its own Special Attack with [Fiery Dance] so it is a Special Attacker that changes stats while attacking.

Can Be Useful Against Higher Difficulty Fire/Poison Weak Raids

By using the [Acid Spray] it will certainly decrease the Special Defense, and it is effective even when the enemy put up a barrier. It is especially effective against the Tera Raids which are weak to Fire or Poison type.

Use Morning Sun For Healing

[Morning Sun] is a Healing Move, so Iron Moth can keep HP just by itself. It is the perfect Pokemon since it is a complete set.

    └ If you want to save money, you would want to Reroll
  2. Use Mints and change Nature to Modest
  3. Increase Effort Value
  4. Increase Level to 100

    Iron Moth is a [Violet] Exclusive Pokemon. It appears in Area Zero, and can be found near the Observation Area 1 in the [Violet] ver. If you have [Scarlet] you can trade it with friends or with someone on the Trading Forum.

    If You Want To Save Money, It Will Be A Little Hard

    Once you have Iron Moth prepared, you have to use items to raise its IVs. Each item will cost you a lot of money and since you can only get Iron Moth by capturing it, it will be hard to reroll its [Nature] and [IV]. If you do not have money, be careful.

    ▶How To Reroll Strong Pokemon
  3. Use Mints and change Nature to Modest
  4. ItemEffect / How To Get
    Modest Mint IconModest Mint- Change the Nature to Modest
    - Nature itself remains the same
    - Purchase at the Chansey Supply Shop for $ 20,000

    You can change the Nature to Modest using the corresponding Mint for it. If you do not have one, get it from the Chansey Supply Shop in Mesagoza or other areas for $ 20,000. If the original Nature is Modest, there is no need to use Mints.

  5. Increase Effort Values

    As a Special Attacker, you want to distribute more to its Sp. ATK. To strengthen your Healing Move, you should distribute more to its HP and then use the rest on SPD. You can also distribute a good amount on SPD to have a faster attack on your opponent.

    If You Have Money To Spare, Buy Items and Strengthen Quickly

    If you have money to spare, you can buy a lot of items to increase your EV in a very fast speed. But each one does cost $ 10000 and for each stats you need 26, and so in total you would need about 50 ($ 500000).

    If You Want To Save Money, Battle Wild Pokemon
