Risky To Bring Ghost Pokemon
Even if Allister's party is mostly prone to Ghost Type moves, it's best to keep them on the bench. Your Ghost Pokemon can easily fall to Allister's Ghost moves as well.Check Out the Type Effectiveness Chart Here!
Use Steel Pokemon Against Mimikyu
Mimikyu is the only Pokemon in Allister's party that doesn't have a Dark Type weakness. Bring a Steel Type Pokemon to counter its strengths & exploit its weakness.
