In Temtem, it is especially important to have a balanced team that can get super-effective moves off against many opponents. As such, you'll need to build a team around your starter! Try not to double up on the same type Temtem unless absolutely necessary!

Be Aware Of Your Starter's Weaknesses

In a new game where you might not be familiar with all the type matchups it's important to keep in mind what your starter's weaknesses are.

The New Trinity
