Armarouge is a Special Attacker that can use Flash Fire to disable Fire-type moves. However, Armarouge has no moves that can recover and heal itself, so it is highly recommended that you equip it with Shell Bell or cheer with Heal up! to help it regain any lost HP.

Powerful With Fire Moves and Psychic Weakness Raids


For example with the Mighty Cinderace Tera Raid, Armarouge can disable Cinderace's Fire type moves with its Ability Flash Fire and attack Cinderace's Fighting Tera Type weakness with Psychic type moves and deal big damage to them.

Effective Against 7 Star Cinderace Tera Raid

Mighty Cinderace

The Armorouge is likely to be useful in the Raid Battle against Cinderace in the 7 Star Raid Event. It can still attack while avoiding Cinderace's main weapon which can attack weaknesses Psychic moves while keeping Fire and Fighting moves at or below half strength.

    Reroll Or Breed If You Want To Save Money

    Eventually, you will need to use items to raise Charcadet and evolve. If you want to save money, reroll or breed since buying various items can be costly. In addition, the Nature of each Pokemon differs thus it is recommended to reroll or breed.

    For the Scarlet version only, talk to the old man in front of the Zapapico Fountain to exchange 10 Bronzor Fragments for Auspicious Armor. Since it is not available in the Violet version, use the Malicious Armor, its counterpart item, as an exchange material and trade it with someone from the Scarlet version.

    When preparing Armorouge to be used in raids, make sure to change its ability from Weak Armor to Flash Fire. However,it is a waste of time and money in reverting from its Normal Ability to its Hidden Ability, so it is recommended to have a spare Charcadet with Flash Fire unless you have an excess of Ability Patches at hand.
