Fight Trainers In Wyndon - Walkthrough & Tips
|1||Fight Macro Cosmos Trainers In The Plaza|
|2||Traverse Rose Tower With Hop|
1. Fight Macro Cosmos Trainers In Plaza
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
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!
Battle Vs. Oleana - Walkthrough & Tips
*Attacks which match Weakness types deal 2x damage.
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.Check out Type Effectiveness Chart 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.Check Out The Dynamax And Gigantamax Guide Here!
Oleana Uses Dynamax On Garbodor
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).
