Pollen Puff & Cotton Guard

Eldegoss's Pollen Puff & Cotton Guard provide healing & shield buffs for allies, which can also be used to debuff enemies. This low CD combo is extremely versatile and can help you keep allies up & running in most situations.

Very Flexible In Held Item & Stats

One thing worth mentioning is that Eldegoss's ability allows it to heal itself, making HP recovery items unnecessary, freeing up a few choices. You can use a Buddy Barrier or even Assault Vest as your 3rd slot item.

Hardier Support

Eldegoss can easily be downed when focused by enemy Attackers or Speedsters. You can increase its survivability by adding more Def and HP. This can grant you more time in fights to support your team.

Leaf Tornado For Speed

Eldegoss's Leaf Tornado grants a speed buff to those that walk through its wake. It can be used to chase down enemies or to escape. Aim carefully when planning on using it to maximize its buffing effects.

Tanky Initiator

With the help of its Held Items, Eldegoss can jump into the fight to lead the team. The increased HP coupled with the additional Defense stats can greatly boost Eldegoss' chances of surviving or at least lasting longer during a scuffle. Remember that the longer Eldegoss stays in during the fight, the harder it is for the enemy to maneuver.

Rocky Helmet Adds Damage

Aside from acting as a pseudo-tank, Eldegoss can also deal reliable damage once it gets stuck in the middle of a team fight. Rocky Helmet deals 4% of that damaging Pokemon's HP. If played well, this can whittle down the health of tanks and other supports, relieving your Attackers and Speeders the effort of damaging them.

Slow Smoke To Prevent Movement

Slow Smoke slows down enemies within the area around Eldegoss. So once you get into the middle of the enemy team, you can pop it off to give time for your teammates to position their skills for the kill. It is also very useful when used against fleeing enemy Pokemon.

Eldegoss - Strategy Guide

Which Lane To Go - Top Or Bottom

Which Lane To Go

Eldegoss's lane will depend on where your teammates choose to go: aim to fill any lane with only 1 Pokemon. This may be top or bottom depending on the situation. It may help if you check your team's quick chat on Pokemon lanes.

Gossifleur (Lv 1~) Strategy

Focus On Supporting Your Ally At Range

Follow your teammate & help it clear wild Pokemon in your lane. Avoid fighting Pokemon from the other team 1 on 1 until you evolve Eldegoss. Mainly use Leafage while keeping Synthesis in reserve to heal your ally. Focus on staying alive & keeping your teammates in the field.

Give Last Hits To Teammates

As a support, Eldegoss must yield the last hit to your teammates. Last hitting Wild Pokemon grants higher XP, allowing your partner to grow stronger and get better skills faster.

Spam Leafage

Spam Leafage

Leafage is an offensive skill that can be used by Gossifleur(/Eldegoss) to deal more damage. As the cooldown is at a fast 4.5 seconds, pick it first and spam Leafage to quickly take down Wild Pokemon. Do this until you get to level 4.

Choose Next Moves Based On Your Strategy

Pollen Puff or Leaf Tornado

Eldegoss's Pollen Puff is extremely versatile and can both heal allies and damage enemies. If you want an extra speed boost, replace Pollen Puff with Leaf Tornado. Pollen Puff can be pretty difficult to land as mobile targets such as Attackers and Speedsters can easily evade it. On the other hand, Leaf Tornado leaves a speed buff even if you miss, making it great for mobility even when fleeing away from pursuers.

Moves To Choose For Extra Slow/Heal
Lv 4: Pollen PuffPollen PuffRanged
Throws a Pollen Puff, which attaches to a Pokemon. The Pollen Puff restores HP for ally Pokemon and deals damage to opposing Pokemon
Move To Choose For Extra Speed
Lv 4: Leaf TornadoLeaf TornadoRanged
Attacks with a tornado of sharp leaves, leaving a path in its wake that increases ally Pokemon's movement speed for a short time

Eldegoss (Lv 4~) Strategy

Heavily use Eldegoss's skills to distract enemy Pokemon or help clear Wild Pokemon. Continue to get EXP to level 6. At this stage your team will be in frequent contact with enemy teams, so start being more aggressive by utilizing your long attack range. Get ready to take Rotom or Drednaw based on your lane.

Be Mobile To Support Teammates

Eldegoss doesn't need to always stay in lane at this stage. Return back to base or help other lanes as the situation demands. Major battles will likely occur near Rotom or Drednaw during this phase, so be ready to change lanes to help support your teammates.

Adapt Your Build To The Situation At Hand

Adapt Your Build

At level 6 Eldegoss gets a choice between Cotton Guard and Cotton Spore. Which one you choose will affect the direction of your build, so pick wisely. If your team primarily is in need of HP restoration, try Cotton Guard. If your team needs damage more urgently, pick Cotton Spore.

AoE Shield Buff
Lv 6: Cotton GuardCotton GuardBuff
Protects the user and nearby ally Pokemon with cotton. The cotton absorbs damage, and when the move ends, the remaining shield is then converted to HP.
Crowd Control Skill
Lv 6: Cotton SporeCotton SporeArea
Gathers spores around the user, increasing the user's movement speed while this move is in effect. The spores burst after a short time, dealing damage to opposing Pokemon in the area of effect, throwing them, and decreasing their movement speed for a short time

Late Game (Lv 9~) Strategy

Using Unite Move: Cotton Cloud Crash

Cotton Cloud Crash is Eldegoss' Unite Move. It is very versatile as you can use it to dodge enemy attacks, escape, heal teammates, and defeat enemy Pokemon. Use it well and try to land it in the middle of a brawl for maximum effect.

Follow Your Teammates

Follow Your Teammates

At this stage of battle, Eldegoss should be near the bulk of your team to provide assists & heals. Stay mobile and follow where your team leads to provide healing and support. While you should help your team as much as you can, be ready to pull away if they over-extend. Avoid going alone, even while defending goals. Also, if there's an opportunity, try to score goals to increase your team's points.

Cotton Guard + Pollen Puff

Recommended Combo
Cotton GuardPollen Puff → Normal Attack

Begin with Cotton Guard to protect yourself and your allies from damage and restore HP. Then, follow up with Pollen Puff to restore more HP to everyone in the team and also deal damage to the opposing Pokemon. Deal a few Normal Attacks after to aid your team in dealing damage. This Eldegoss build is particularly useful in assisting your team in taking down Zapdos.

Leaf Tornado + Cotton Spore

Recommended Combo
Leaf TornadoCotton Spore → Normal Attack

Begin with Leaf Tornado to deal a ranged attack to opposing Pokemon and increase your allies' movement speed. Then, follow up with Cotton Spore as you get closer to the battle to reduce the damage Eldegoss takes and also deal damage to the enemy Pokemon nearby once the spores burst.

Leaf Tornado + Cotton Guard

Recommended Combo
Leaf TornadoCotton Guard → Normal Attack

Open with Leaf Tornado to increase your team's speed towards the target. Afterwards, quickly follow up with Cotton Guard for added HP and shield. This can help Eldegoss secure kills or escape with your team. Remember to carefully aim the Leaf Tornado's path to benefit your other teammates.

Other Tips & Tricks

Positioning - Stay Behind Other Pokemon

Stay Behind Other Pokemon

Eldegoss lacks repositioning skills and can have a hard time escaping when targeted - which some teams will attempt to prevent you from healing. If ganged up upon, Eldegoss will still have a hard time escaping despite its passive skill that increases speed when below 50% HP. With that, always stay behind allies in battle and push only when it's safe to.

Make Heavy Use Of Long-Range Slowing Basic Attack

Make Heavy Use Of Long-Range Slowing Basic Attack

Thanks to Eldegoss's passive ability, opponents struck by its basic attack will trigger pollen and be slowed. Given Eldegoss' ranged basic attacks, players should regularly target enemy Pokemon to aid in battle & create openings for allies to strike.

Incredibly Squishy - Keep A Safe Distance

With enough firepower, Eldegoss can be shutdown in a matter of seconds

Even with shields and high levels, Eldegoss is still a squishy Pokemon. Although not as soft as Attackers, you can disappear quickly if you get piled up on. Maintain safe distance and always rely on your teammates for the attack. Eldegoss' skills have great range so there's no need to go to the front to battle.

Eldegoss - Timing Specific Guide

What To Do At Every Stage Of The Game

This section will guide you on which specific Wild Pokemon to target in order, as well as what to do at various stages of the game. This guide is based on Leaf Tornado/Cotton Guard builds.

10:00~9:40

Target Level3
Tasks① Learn Leafage as your first skill.
② KO the first Aipom.
③ KO the second Aipom.
④ KO the 3rd and 4th line of Aipoms.
⑤ Head towards the middle.

Eldegoss is a support type Pokemon, meaning leveling up is not your top priority - you'll be assisting your allies through the match instead. Try to hand over the last hit to your ally as much as possible throughout the course of the match.

9:40~7:00

Target Level4
Tasks① KO Audino on the upper middle.
② KO the upper left and lower left Audinos.
③ Deal and KO the Corphish located at the lower left corner of your goal zone.
④ Clear the Combees and Vespiquens in the middle.
⑤ KO the newly spawned Audino on the upper middle.
⑥ KO newly spawned Audino on the upper middle.
⑦ Deal and KO the newly spawned Corphish located at the lower-left corner of your goal zone.
⑧ Clear the newly spawned Combees and Vespiquens in the middle.

It's a good idea to use Synthesis when you reach level 4. Although you are a support and should give up last hits, at least try to reach level 4 as fast as possible - this is because you will evolve into Eldegoss at this point.

7:00~Until Defeating Drednaw's 1st Appearance

Target Level6
Tasks• Use Leaf Tornado check the grass for opponents. This move will also help your allies move around.
• Use Cotton Guard in group fights.

Leaf Tornado is a long-distance attack in a specified direction which will also increase your allies' movement speed.. Move through the grass and try to spot opponents that might be hiding there. Cotton Guard is also effective as well since it protects not just you but allies around you as well.

Drednaw Guide - Spawn Time & Location

After Defeating 1st Drednaw~Zapdos Fight & Endgame

Target Level9~
Tasks• Use Leaf Tornado to check the grass for opponents. This move will also help your allies move.
• Use Cotton Guard assertively in group fights.
・Prevent your opponent from using their unite move with your unite move.

Eldegoss' Unite move will make you invincible and will protect you from damage. We recommend using this move when your opponent attempt to use their Unite Move as well, effectively negating it.

Pokemon Eldegoss Is Weak Against

How To Play Against Eldegoss

・ Eldegoss is a full support and can be seen as a high-priority target due to the buffs that it can give. Concentrate on it as a team first or assign a Pokemon to take it down.
・ Eldegoss is incredibly weak against enemy nukers. With its low HP, there's little to no chance it can stand a devastating combo from the likes of Pikachu or Gengar.
・ Pushes or moves that displace targets also work well against it as Eldegoss relies heavily on positioning to maximize its skills.
・ Do not allow Eldegoss to perform Cotton Cloud Crash as Eldegoss can use it to either escape or buff its allies.
