1. Fight Macro Cosmos Trainers In Plaza

Plaza Trainer

There are a few Macro Cosmos trainers around the plaza (just north of the Wyndon city entrance) which you'll need to fight first.

2. Traverse Rose Tower With Hop

Hop Double

You'll have to do some double battles alongside Hop at this point. He'll bring out a Dubwool, which is not very useful in many situations, so don't expect to rely on him!

Bring Strong Ground & Fire Type Pokemon

Although Oleana's team is fairly varied, two of her Pokemon are weak to Ground & two are also weak to Fire. Having the move Earthquake on a Ground-type like Excadrill or Mudsdale will really help you out here.

Watch Out For Milotic's Recover


Oleana's Milotic can be a bit of a nuisance if you're not careful since she'll keep the battle going with her Recover move. It might be a good idea to Dynamax at this point.

Oleana Uses Dynamax On Garbodor

Garbodor Dynamax

Oleana'll Dynamax her Garbodor. A strong ground-type move will make short work of it. Excadrill is particularly effective due to being Steel-type (thus immune to poison-type moves).

I'm sorry, but I don't think that's what a Froslass looks like...
