Almost Impossible To Win

Max's Oree is significantly stronger than you, especially if you've chosen Houchic & Smazee. As such, there is no way to win this fight. Don't worry - you'll be able to get revenge later on...

Plan Your Order Carefully

This battle with Max will be quite a challenge, so it's important to plan the order of your Tems carefully. Consider going with the following battle steps:

General Process
1Lead with a Nature type (Loali or Saku work well)
2Swap to a Water/Electric type for Oree. Focus it down immediately!
3Revive your Electric user if necessary before Barnshe.
4Bring out a nature/Wind type for Ganki (revive Loali or Saku)

Spam Balm+

Oree

If you have a Tem you're sure can handle the opponents, one worthwhile strategy is to spam Balm+ on it until your opponent is exhausted. Oree's Turbo Attack costs 27 Stamina, meaning it can only use 2 before exhausting itself. If you survive those, you should be okay.

Recommended Level: 25-30

This fight can be particularly difficult if you're low, as even a super-effective hit on Max's Lvl. 28 Oree will not do much damage. We strongly recommend leveling up at least your Nessla or Ganki to 25+ before this fight.

Recommended Level 35-40

This fight can be a real challenge if your Tems are low level, so aim for level 35-40.

Temtem Use Order

General Process
1Lead with Wind and Earth types (Mudrid, Pigepic, etc)
2Swap to a Water type for Zaobian (wait till Goolder is down).
3Take Barnshe out quickly with an Electric move
4Bring out a Nature type for Saipat
5Save a Crystal type for last

Make an effort to minimize how many super-effective moves you take. To do so, switch out of matchups that are not to your advantage! Unfortunately, Digital moves cannot be resisted, so prepare to use healing items to live through them.
