A Build To Curse Your Enemies

This build enables Trevenant to create a cursed zone that deals increasing damage to opposing Pokemon caught in its AoE and slowing them down. Great for catching fleeing opponents and preventing them from escaping Trevenant's wrath! Use this when the curse power is at maximumt to reset Pain Split when it's released.

Pain Split Foes

You can redirect the incursion Trevenant receives when you use Pain Split's double-edge damage against your attacker! Trevenant sends back a part of the damage it takes to the connected Pokemon while the link is active. This increases as Trevenant's unfortunate target's HP decreases, which makes the elimination process much easier. Moreover, this move has a lifesteal that replenishes Trevenant's HP pool if the target has more HP than it does have. Additionally, this move also increases Trevenant's movement speed for chasing fleeing opponents. You can use this as a last resort to get away from unfavorable battles if the situation calls for it.

Held Items For Max Performance

Increase Trevenant's HP with Score Shield and get a shield equal to 5% of its max HP whenever it tries to score a goal. Focus Band will further increase its endurance in battle with its additional defense it provides and can also recover 8% of the HP it had lost when it gets low from battling. Muscle Band is an excellent way to boost Trevenant's Atk Speed and Basic Atk, boosting the damage output by 1% of the opponent Pokemon's remaining HP.

Change Location Easily With This Battle Item

Since Trevenant has a life steal it can use to recover lost HP, it would be best to equip it with a Battle Item that enhances its mobility instead. With Eject Button, you can easily change your placement in battle. It's also a great tool to utilize when faced against unfavorable battles.

This follow-up attack has the user slam down a giant wooden hammer in front of itself, dealing damage to any Pokemon it hits and leaving them unable to act for a short time.

Horn Leech Enemies

Charge towards enemies with Horn Leech! This move is pretty useful on pushing back opponents when they are trying to score a goal or attacking your ally as this move has a knock back effect on top of its dash. It also recovers Trevenant's HP when it hits a target, as well as boosts basic attacks, increasing their damage. Make sure to hit them to reduce Horn Leech's cooldown rate so you can use it again!

Stun Opponents With Wood Hammer

Wood Hammer is a great follow up attack after closing in the gap with your lane opponents as it deals incredible amounts of damage. Moreover, you can incapacitate them for a short time, making them vulnerable to your next attack! The lower the User's HP, the longer the opposing Pokemon will be left unable to act making them easier to knock out with Trevenant's Phantom Forest. ​

Held Items For Added Protection

Focus Band will further strengthen Trevenant's defense and enabling it to recover 8% of the HP it had lost. This is important especially during the early stages that it is vulnerable against getting targeted and ganked by lane opponents to delay it level progression. When Trevenant uses its Unite Move, Buddy Barrier will grant it a shield and its nearby allies equivalent to 20% of their max HP. Muscle Band is great to increase Trevenant's Atk and Basic Atk Speed especially when it uses Horn Leech, where its basic attacks deal increased damage after this move hits a target. With each basic attack that hits, Muscle Band increases the damage output equivalent to 1% of the opposing Pokemon's remaining HP.

Increase Your Mobility With This Battle Item

Trevenant may quickly shift its location by pressing the Eject Button. It's an excellent item to use to go in and out of battles so you can quickly defend teammates. You can also use this as your last resort to escape enemies.

Horn Leech To Move Around Quickly

Trevenant charges towards enemies and shoves them back with Horn Leech. This is ideally a great move to counter aggressive lane opponents from closing the distance to certain team objectives especially on ally goal zone's and prevent even the most tough Pokemon equipped with Score Shield to shoot some points uninterruptedly. With its lifesteal effects, Trevenant won't be able to get knocked out quickly even when faced with multiple opponents.

Held Items For Sp. Atk Damage

This Held Item will increase Phantom Curse effects by increasing Trevenant's damage output by 7% for a short time while reducing the cooldown rate of its Moves and Unite Move. Muscle Band provides additional Atk and Basic Atk Speed that enhances the infliction on Trevenant's normal attacks by increasing its damage equivalent to 1% of the opposing Pokemon's remaining HP.

Use this move for Pokemon about to flee or opponents charging in the lane to score to stop them from their tracks.

Basics
Take Advantage Of Your Early Evolution
Compared to other Defenders, Trevenant is able to reach its Final Form at lvl 7 which is considered quite early. Use this to get the upperhand in the battle arena. Try not to focus too much on attacking lane opponents when not necessary. It's better to choose your battles wisely and focus getting Exp's from nearby spawns while guarding the goal zone. This is to ensure that you'll be able to access Trevenant's full movesets even before the first mark.
▶How To Level Up Fast - EXP Farming
Horn Leech For Protection
Horn Leech is a dash attack that you can use even without a target. In addition, it nullifies any hindrances during the duration of the move. You can see your opponent's incoming move's AoE or attack route before its attack takes effect, so activate Horn Leech to rapidly adjust your location to evade such attacks and avoid getting damaged. Use it to easily get in and out of battles or use it as an escape tool from unfavorable situations.
▶How To Dodge - Tips & Guides
Use Phantom Forest In Group Battles
The amount of protection Trevenant receives while using its Unite Move grows in proportion to the number of Pokemon struck within its area of effect. It is more effective when used against numerous opponents in group engagements rather than in one-on-one confrontations. It also enhances your allies basic Atks to eliminate debuffed opponents and secure a team knockout

Extend Incapacity Time With Wood Hammer
Trevenant's can dash into group battles with Horn Leech and stun multiple opponents with Wood Hammer, creating opportunities for nearby allies to burst enemies affected. When using Wood Hammer, you can use it again to follow up another Hammer Attack that further incapacitates opponents, leaving them vulnerable for a few more seconds.
▶5 Techniques For Advanced Players To Improve
Increase Endurance With HP Recovery Effects
Trevenant's durability is quite good due to the number of HP recovery means. You may actively advance ahead and protect allies in group battles. Trevenant's passives are activated when its remaining HP falls below the HP gauge line. While the passive is active, its HP will recover at a faster rate, and the cooldown rate for all moves will be decreased. It's a great ability that can help Trevenant's endurance and also shortens its move's charge rate.

Lane Guide
Which Lane Should You Go To?

Phatump (Lv 1~) Strategy

Choose Branch Poke

When you are prompted to pick which starting move to use first, choose Branch Poke to be able to deal focused damage on individual spawns from the base to the upper area in the lanes to easily knock them out with its damage. Follow this with Will-o-Wisp which you can acquire before getting near the top lane goal zone in the middle. Use this for its area damage to target the two Audinos nearby to help your ally knock them out quickly.

Play Safe During The Early Stages

As much as possible, refrain from fighting battles head-on, especially when against counter Pokemon in the lane. Stay near the goal zone so your ally so you won't get pressured early.

Trevenant (Lv 5~) Strategy

Focus On Farming To Level Up

Make sure to prioritize Phatump's level progression so it won't get under leveled later on by its lane opponents. Farm nearby Wild Pokemon to get extra EXP that will help you evolve quickly and access your damage-dealing moveset.

How To Level Up Fast - EXP Farming

Moves Get To Be Extra Effective After Lv5

At level 5, you'll get a choice between basic attack buffing Wood Hammer or Curse. Your choice will be heavily influenced by the role you wish to play on your Unite Squad or team. You can choose to get aggressive with Curse or be somewhat of a roaming Defender with Wood Hammer 's dash attacks you can use to get in and out battles. Either way make sure to build which suits your playstyle better to maximize your performance in battle!

Trevenant (Lv 7~) Strategy

Adapt Your Build To Your Attack Style

You'll need to consider choosing Horn Leech or Pain Split as you will use this for the rest of the game. Ensure that your second move complements your other move to get the best build for Trevenant. Keep in mind the effects from the Held Items and Battle Item you are equipped with.

Horn Leech
Lv 7: Horn LeechHorn Leech
Has the user charge forward, dealing damage to opposing Pokémon in its path and shoving them as it charges. Colliding with an opposing Pokémon while charging recovers the user’s HP, and the lower the user’s remaining HP, the more HP is recovered. At the end of the charge, the opposing Pokémon that were shoved are dealt additional damage and then thrown. After this move hits an opposing Pokémon, the mechanics of the user’s next three basic attacks change. These changed basic attacks deal increased damage and reduce this move’s cooldown when they hit.
Pain Split
Lv 7: Pain SplitPain Split
Creates a link between the user and a designated opposing Pokemon. While the link holds, the user redirects a portion of the damage it receives to the linked Pokemon. The lower the user's remaining HP, the greater the percentage of damage that is redirected. Additionally, if the user's percentage of remaining HP is lower than the linked Pokemon's, this move continuously recovers the user's HP and deals damage over time to the linked Pokemon. If the user and the linked opposing Pokemon are too far apart, the link will disappear. Using this move increases the user's movement speed for a short time.

Dodge Attacks With Trevenant's Horn Leech!

Trevenant's dash moves allow you to avoid incoming strikes! When you use this to your advantage, you may quickly move away from your location to avoid being hit by ranged attacks and the HP recovery effects prevent Trevenant from suffering too much damage. It's also a great escape tool when needed.

Curse & Pain Split

Recommended Combo
CursePain Split

This build combines two powerful phantom moves into a deadly combination. In exchange of a portion of its HP, Trevenant creates a cursed zone that does damage over time to enemy Pokemon in the area of effect while slowing their movement speed. When you use this built-up power, Trevenant will do more damage to opponent Pokemon in the area of effect. Pain Split's cooldown automatically resets if the curse power is at its maximum when it is discharged. Use Pain Split to bind opponent's to Trevenant. While the link is active, the Trevenant redirects a part of the damage dealt to the bound Pokemon. The lower the user's remaining HP, the greater the percentage of damage that is redirected. It also recovers Trevenant's HP when its lower than that of its target.

Horn Leech & Wood Hammer

Recommended Combo
Horn LeechWood Hammer

This build enables you to push back enemies and get them incapacitated. Trevenant can prevent lane opponents from fleeing, scoring or from targeting your allies by shoving them back with Horn Leech. It also deals damage in addition to its dashing move, inflicting damage anyone on its path while recovering HP as they get hit, and thus increasing Trevenant's survivability. Follow this up with Wood Hammer to stun enemies and incapacitate them for a short time.

Curse & Horn Leech

Recommended Combo
CurseHorn Leech

This build focuses on charging head on with foes and cursing them. Curse your enemy quickly to create an AoE that deals increasing damage overtime and slows them down, its debuff effect depending on the enemy's HP, the lower it gets the more they get slowed down. During the duration of this Curse move, its damage output power increases every time Trevenant deals or receives damage. Push back your enemies against nearby obstacles or away from team objectives with Horn Leech's shove. It also recovers Trevenant's HP when this move hits an opposing Pokemon along the path. This can be a potential game changer when faced against strong matchups, especially Pokemon of the same role, as Trevenant can outlive them with its lifesteals.

Wood Hammer & Pain Split

Recommended Combo
Pain SplitWood Hammer

This build focuses on immobilizing lane opponents and stopping them from their tracks. Start off with Pain Split to increase Trevenant's movement speed and return some of the infliction it got from the linked target while dealing increasing damage to it. If the target's HP is higher than Trevenant, it will trigger the life steal effect where it restores a portion of its lost HP. As your target gets weakened, use Wooden Hammer to incapacitate them further and pulls them close to Trevenant for another follow up attack that will leave it unable to act, eventually eliminating them. Once you upgrade this move, it will also decreases the damage of your opponent for a short time.

Unite Move: Phantom Curse

This Unite Move enables Trevenant to create a cursed forest, inflicting damage on opposing Pokemon in the area of effect, hurling them, and temporarily slowing their movement speed. For a brief period of time afterward, all allied Pokemon's basic attacks deliver enhanced damage against opposing Pokemon that were hit by this Unite Move. When this Unite Move hits an opponent Pokemon, the user gains a shield. The shield effect increases in strength as more enemy Pokemon are hit. While Trevenant is protected by the shield, it recovers its lost HP from the increased healing from this Unite Move's effects.

If you're struggling in a fight, consider reserving this to try to get the last hit on Zapdos.

Trevenant - Timing Specific Guide

What To Do At Every Stage Of The Game

This section will teach you the specific Wild Pokemon to knock out in order, as well as exactly what to do at various stages of the game. Note that this info is based on the top lane with the Horn Leech & Wood Hammer build!

10:00~9:40

Target Level3
Tasks① Choose Will-O-Wisp as your first skill
② KO the first Aipom
③ KO the next Aipom
④ KO the 3rd and 4th line of Aipoms
⑤ Head towards the middle.

Choose Will-O-Wisp as your first skill as it can leave a burn effect and will guarantee you the last hit. While going to the middle, KO the Aipoms - once you've reached the 3rd & 4th Aipom you can attack both with Will-O-Wisp. The damage from this will help your lane partner to knock out the other Aipom faster while you take down yours. This will enable you both to increase your level progression early on.

9:40~7:00

Target Level5
Tasks① KO the Corphish located at the lower side of the lane.
② Clear the Aipom spawns located at the upper and lower left side
③ Deal with the Corphish located at the upper left side of your goal zone
④ Clear the Combees and Vespiquens in the middle
⑤ Clear the newly spawned Corphish at the lower side of the lane
⑥ Clear the newly spawned Aipoms at the upper and lower left side
⑦ Deal with the respawned Corphish located at the upper left side of your goal zone
⑧ KO the 4 Corphishes in the central lane and then head towards the bottom lane

During the early stages, Branch Poke can deal damage which you can use to get the last hit. Always strive for the finishing blow so that you can get the extra Exp to evolve into Trevenant as soon as possible and choose Wood Hammer as your next skill. You can lay off getting the last hits once you secure your evolution. This way you'll unlock your complete moveset to be able to protect your lane partner better against upcoming attacks from the opposing team.

7:00~ Until Drednaw's 1st Appearance

Target Level7
Tasks• Take the lead and protect your allies from any opponent's attacks.
• Use Wood Hammer to incapacitate opponents thus giving your team an advantage
• If you have low HP, use Horn Leech to run away.

During the team fight, take the lead and use Wood Hammer to incapacitate multiple opponents to provide opportunities for your allies to attack them while immobilized. Once you've reached level 7 choose Horn Leech if you are struggling with mobility. This will help you get away from unfavorable battles with its dash move which you can utilize as your escape tool. Aside from this, it will help Trevenant to get in and out of battles quickly, enabling you to help allies in need. It also has an HP recovery effect when you hit an opponent that could increase Trevenant's survivability in the battle.

• If you have low HP, use Horn Leech to run away.
• Use your Unite Move if your opponents are in one place.

With Trevenant's Unite Move, Phantom Forest, you'll have a wide attack range to be able to attack multiple opponents at once through the otherworldly trees that Trevenant can call forth. This also grants a shield effect that increases depending on the number of opponents you hit. Moreover, unlucky opponents inflicted will get vulnerable to the basic attacks thereafter and will get a leaf symbol above their head, marking them for Trevenant and its allies to target. Phantom Forest is more effective in team fights where a lot of Pokemon gather around compared to when it's done in 1v1 situations. Once you've reached level 13, you'll be able to upgrade to Horn Leech+.

Trevenant has high endurance and a bunch of HP recovery methods it can use to heal itself, making it hard to knockout especially at its max level. Make sure to protect allies with low endurance from your opponents so your team can get the upper hand when struggling to capture Zapdos against the enemy team during the crucial Final Stages.

How To Play Against Trevenant

Pokemon that are fast enough to breach Trevenant's defenses and deliver more damage than it can heal have the capability to easily defeat it.
Use hindering moves like Crustle's Rock Tomb or Mr. Mime's shields to prevent Trevenant from closing the gap and dealing damage
It may take some time to defeat opponents especially Pokemon of the same role as it won't have the burst damage to knock them out quickly
Target Phantump during the early stages to delay its level progression so it won't be able to play an active role in the later stages.
