Espathra is powerful in that it uses the signature move Lumina Crash repeatedly to deal damage while lowering the opponent's Sp.Defense.

Great In Raids In Which Psychic Moves Are Advantageous


Lumina Crash is a Psychic move, so we recommend Fighting/Poison type raids where you can target your opponent's weak points with Psychic. On the other hand, Psychic, Dark, and Steel types, which Psychic is weaker are not recommended.

You Can Defeat It With Consecutive Attacks Depending On The Pokemon

Psychic moves can be used to exploit the weaknesses of opponents and in the case of an enemy Pokemon with low Sp. Defense, consecutive Lumina Crash attacks can be used to quickly finish the battle. Depending on the raid, it may be easier to just use this move consecutively.

Skill Swap can be used against Mirror Armor

By learning Skill Swap, it can deal with Mirror Armor, which does not work with the additional effect of Lumina Crash, and Defiant and Competitive, whose power increase by lowering Sp. Defense. But note that Annihilape and Kingambit may take advantage of this weakness.

    Espathra appears in Asado Desert and Area Zero. We recommend Area Zero, where high-level Espathra appears, to save a bit of time and effort in leveling up. It appears in the cave around Research Station No. 4.

    Reroll To Save Money

    Once Espathra is prepared, use items to increase the IV stats. Since each item costs money, it is recommended to reroll [Nature] [Individual Value] and [Ability] if you want to save some money.

  3. Change Nature to Modest in Mints
  4. ItemEffect / How To Obtain
    Modest MintModest Mint- Change Nature to Modest.
    - Nature itself remains the same.
    - Purchased at Chansey Supply for 20,000 Pokedollars

    Mints can be used to turn Nature into Modest. If you don't have one, go to Chansey Supply in Mesagoza or other towns and buy one for 2,000 Pokedollars. However, if the original Nature is Modest already, there is no need to use Mints.

    Mints - Effects & How To Get
  5. Raise Effort Value

    As a Special Attacker, it is recommended to maximize firepower, so distribute all of the resources to Sp. Attack. In order to increase durability and make it harder to get knocked down, distribute to HP and the rest to Speed. Another option is add a little extra to Speed to some extent to make it easier to get the first move.

    Use Items To Increase Effort Value

    The fastest way is to use the above items to change its value if you can afford it. Although a total of about 500,000 Poke Dollars is required, it is a very fast way to raise your EVs.

    Where To Get Vitamins & Feathers?

    Vitamins are available at Chansey Supply, and Feathers are available as Sparkling items in Casseroya Lake and also Bid in Porto Marinada

  8. Fastest Way Is To Use Exp Candy

    The fastest way to level up is with candy alone.
    Exp. Candy LEXP Value: 10,000
    Exp. Candy XLEXP Value: 30,000

    If you clear the 5 or 6 star Tera Raid, you can get Exp. Candy L or Exp Candy XL. Leveling up is the most efficient when training a single Pokemon.

    ▶Tera Raid Battle Codes Search Board

    Those With No Candy Can Gain EXP From Chansey

    If you don't have enough candy to raise your Pokemon to Lv 100, try to defeat Chansey in North Province Area Three to raise your level. Level up through this until you have enough candy to level up the rest of the way.

    MetronomeMetronomeIf you hold it, each time you use the same move, the power increases by 20% (up to 100%). It resets when other moves are used.

    As for the items to hold, it is recommended to use Metronome which is stronger than Choice Specs, since you will mainly be using Lumina Crash.
