I lead with Charjabug, and use Charge to boost up for Spark on my second turn as the Totem Wishiwashi uses Water Gun on me and calls in a base form Wishiwashi. The Alolan Ninetales is able to produce ice crystals from the fur that covers its body. Normally this would be a problem, but it turns out its only moves that can possibly deal damage to me are Flail and Copycat. But the frequent eruptions of nearby volcanoes drove the Sandshrew to abandon the desert and migrate to snowy mountains, where they took on this form. Apparently he can be in two places at once. With my Trials all complete, I can now climb up to the Altar of the Sunne and go to Ultra Space.
Agreed on your last point! This was where things got sketchy. With that out of the way, I can finally access the fifth Trial. Guzma This fight made me regret turning off the Exp. With Solar Blade, Lurantis absorbs energy from the sun on the first move and then unleashes a powerful attack on the second turn. Finally, her Bewear is easy pickings for Ribombee. Lurantis is the Totem Pokémon of Lush Jungle, the site of an Akala Island trial. What you really have to worry about is his Eelektross which do to it's ability isn't weak to anything! Four red, wing-like appendages sprout from its back, each tipped with white.
I don't see why it should be nocturnal. Unlike other Exeggutor, the Alolan Exeggutor has a fourth head—on its tail! Kukui obnoxiously used two Full Restores during this fight, but once Snorlax was at -6, I switched to using Liquidation and Snorlax went down. I barely pulled through with one Pokemon remaining, but it was an embarrassing schlep back outside the door to get my team healed by Lillie. It will also be protected from status conditions. It outspeeds almost every Pokemon on my team except for Ribombee and has a very powerful Attack stat to utilize its super-effective Rock Throws.
Grubbin also leveled up to 13 and learned Bug Bite, which I happily taught it over the useless String Shot. Oricorio has the new Dancer Ability that no other Pokémon has had before. That makes sense because it's a grass type. Mud-Slap also came in handy for getting around Emily's Magnemite. I know what you mean. There's two main reasons why I want one: it has 62 base attack and it knows Vice Grip right out of the box, which is a 55 power Normal-type physical move. I also take part in a Battle Royal with Hau, Gladion, and totally not Kukui in disguise.
Third was Braviary, which I sent in Vikavolt to deal with. That's all Pokemon said about Fomantis. These Alolan Vulpix live on high mountains that remain covered in snow year-round. All of the captains are Trainers who undertook trials in their own island challenge a few years earlier. I also struggled against Mimikyu even with my Primarina, and I kept forgetting about Z-moves. Fomantis excel at long-range attacks like Razor Leaf and Solar Beam.
These trials are not limited to battling with Pokemon. Gumshoos can withstand a great deal of hunger. For example: Woe is Leomon. This fight took me two tries for the dumbest reason ever: after my Vikavolt fainted, which I was using for Thunder Wave and dealing damage, I stupidly decided to send in my Golisopod, forgetting what Emergency Exit actually did in wild battles. It took a full team effort from Ledyba, Butterfree, Grubbin, and Spinarak, but it went down eventually without any of my team members fainting.
Next up is a more difficult fight: Ilima. The main issue this time is that this little jerk now has Moonlight for recovery, which drags the matchup out far longer than necessary. With Mimikyu slowed, I was able to bring in my Ribombee after Charjabug fainted and take out both the Haunter and Gengar with a single Psychic each while only taking one hit in return. The land, the sea, the sky—with the power of Pokemon, you can go anywhere! With the fight over, Cosmog escapes the machine and evolves into Cosmoem, and Lusamine is pulled into Ultra Space along with Guzma and Nihilego. It has Pluck, Screech, Supersonic and Rock Blast.
Mimikyu Welcome to Thrifty Megamart, a prime example of why you shouldn't pursue urban development on sacred ground! Photosynthesis is precious to Fomantis, and it will fiercely attack those who get in the way of that process. The Fomantis is relatively common, and can be found on Route Five and the Lush Jungle, which is the sight of Captain Mallow's trial. I like their design they are not bad. It gets three Sparks off before going down to Rock Slide, and I send in Pinsir to mop up with Brick Break. It has a light pink body with wavy, skirt-like extensions around the waist and a green abdomen and neck. Po Town, the gloomiest place in the region, has been completely taken over by Team Skull, and there are five Grunts to fight before even going inside Shady House.
When it dances, its feathers are charged with static electricity. A Rock Tomb from Pinsir quickly forces out his Golisopod and deals with his Ariados, so this fight wasn't too difficult. With Solar Blade, Lurantis absorbs energy from the sun on the first move and then unleashes a powerful attack on the second turn. Its brilliant coloration and elegant moves earn it acclaim as the most gorgeous Pokémon. See, in the original Alola games, there are only ten fully-evolved Pokemon that are at least partly Bug-type and can be encountered before the postgame, and all of them are originally found on the first two islands. If another Pokemon in the field uses a dancing move, then Oricorio will be able to use the same move immediately afterward, thanks to its Dancer Ability.
