Be Careful Of Greninja's Extrasensory

Unrivaled Greninja

Clodsire is Poison and Ground type so Psychic moves are its weakness. At this time, Greninja's moveset is not confirmed, but if it has learned Extrasensory then it can attack its weakness so completing will be hard.

  6. Best Individual Value with Bottle Cap
  1. Capture the pre-evolved Paldean Wooper
  2. The pre-evolved Paldean Wooper can be found near Los Platos.It is recommended to capture the Paldean Wooper and then evolve, since it appears more common than the Clodsire.

    Reroll For Ground Tera Type

    The Clodsire trained for the Unrivaled Greninja only uses Ground type moves. If you are to catch it in the wild there is a chance to capture the Poison Tera Type or Ground Tera Type, so be sure to reroll for a Ground Tera Type.

    ・Nature itself remains the same
    Purchased at Chansey Supply for 20,000 Poke Dollars

    With Modest Mint, you can turn it into Modest with some Nature correction. If you don't have it, go to Chansey Supply in Mesagoza or other places and buy one for 20,000 Poke Dollars. However, there is no need to use Mints if the original Nature is Modest.

  7. Change Effort Value

    There is a possibility the Unrivaled Greninja will be a Mixed Attacker, so you will want to spread your HP to 252. You will want to lower your Sp. Attack Base Stats as much as possible to increase your fire power so add 252 to SP. ATK.

    If You Have Money Use Vitamins To Increase Effort Value

    The fastest way is to use the above Vitamins to change its value if you can afford it. But since 1 costs 10,000 Pokedollars and you need 26 pieces for each stats, that is a total of 500,000 Poke Dollars is required.

How To use Clodsire In Raids

Procedure Guideline
  1. Use Stockpile on the 1 Turn
  2. Decrease SP DEF with Acid Spray by 6 levels
  3. Terastalize and attack Earth Power
  4. If HP decreases use Recover right away
  1. Use Stockpile on the 1 Turn
  2. You will want to strengthen your DEF and SP. DEF so you do not get attacked by high damage. If you don't have Stockpile, cheer with "Hang tough!".

    You Do Not Want To Stack 3 On First Moves

    If you do not use Swallow then you can only use Stockpile maximum of 3 times. Even if the status gets erased, Stockpile counts will not be reset so if you use all 3 of your Stockpile moves and resets, then you will not be able to stack anymore.

  3. Decrease SP DEF with Acid Spray by 6 levels
  4. Next you want to use Acid Spray to lower Unrivaled Greninja's SP. DEF. If the effects do not get erased, then you should be able to drop the SP. DEF by 3 turns.

  5. Terastalize and attack Earth Power
  6. After you have used Acid Spray 3 times, your Terastalize will be charged so use it and attack with Earth Power.

  7. If HP decreases use Recover right away
  8. If your HP has decreased by half, you will need to heal with Recover. The Speed of Clodsire is very low, so you will want to heal up right away.
