Uses Dynamax On Gengar

Allister uses Dynamax on Gengar in your battle. When he does, make sure to also Dynamax a Dark, Ground, or Psychic Pokemon to counter his heavy Ghost-type hits.

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.

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.
