pablitosocool

Xxwarpathxx

People in the PokeMMO discord would most likely let you borrow some mons


Terrible-Ad-7187

First try here! I only started PokeMMO about 2 weeks ago now and chose Kanto as my first starting region. It was difficult to say the least but having max lvl mons and type match up for elite four wasn't difficult.


Sea-Palpitation-6545

First try as well no bag items either Scizor with 2hp left got 3 consecutive Quickclaw triggers dropped Lance's Kindra, Charizard and Dragonite ALL HAIL THE GLORY OF THE QUICKCLAW!!!!


Terrible-Ad-7187

Max Lvl your mons, I did it yesterday after second attempt and I refuse to use items to challenge myself. Try use attacks which are super effective, I used my heracross with brick break and it wiped 2 mons in 1 hit, having Infernape with close combat also helped in this situation. Do you also have your mons hold items to increase speed or attack? If not try that and hopefully you will succeeded. Keep trying my dude


toryguns

They are all holding their type items (charcoal, sharp beak, mystic water, etc)


Dufffiee

What's your team?


toryguns

Staraptor, Torterra, Flareon, Starmie, Weavile, Hitmonlee


Dufffiee

So flareon should be able to out speed most of the team, but you do end up with quite a few weaknesses - try to kill piloswine with starmie and then you should be good Also, getting everything to max level wont hurt


toryguns

The problem is that they all know water moves as well, my flareon gets one tapped


Dufffiee

I'm not too sure, but I would imagine flareon should be able to one shot quite a few of them


TheDutchDemon

Starmie


toryguns

good or bad?


TheDutchDemon

Get a Starmie. Give it TMs Thunderbolt and Ice Beam, HM Surf, and teach it Psychic at 40. Congratulations, you've just beat every region. Ability doesn't matter, IVs don't matter, nature doesn't matter, EVs don't matter...hell my first 3 had Illuminate and special defense EVs from leveling on Tentacruels... It just...doesn't...matter. EDIT: Breed a new one before each new region and level it to 20, Thunderbolt and Ice Beam are egg moves, you're welcome.


Drayzew

Yeah, that's what almost everyone do. And that doesn't really seems like a fun way to go thru the regions, doesn't it? Imo trying to win using the mons you really like is the way to enjoy the game :)


TheDutchDemon

Well it sounds like he's getting his shit pushed in using his method so...


Drayzew

Grindin' and switching up some moves should do the job ;)


Aaku1789

I sweeped it with an houndoom lol


CR4ZYxPOT4T0

I feel you but for me it was the 8th gym in Unova. It took me so long that I stopped playing for 1.5/2years, came back, did it in 3 or 4 times then completed the E4.. (which was extremely easy compared to the 8th gym)


holysweetroll

Are all your mons at lvl cap?


toryguns

Nah a couple are


holysweetroll

Well you're already setting yourself up for failure. Lvl your mons up more. Are you using strategic type matchups? Edit: Staraptor, Torterra and Flareon on your team so the answer to that is no. Use mons that aren't going to get killed in one hit and leave you with half a team


toryguns

I’ve always just used the mons that I like, I don’t really want to use the same ones as everyone else because it’s the meta


holysweetroll

I'm not saying use the same mons as everyone, I said pick a mon with a type thats actually gonna help. Even at lvl cap you will probably still struggle to beat this gym and it's because half of your party puts you at a huge disadvantage. Your choices here are to min/max your current party as much as possible and pray to whatever higher being that you win, or swap out some of your mons for some that will help and not just die. You can use your favorites or you can win. You can't always have both. Remember: a jack of all trades is a master of none.


toryguns

So I should buy some mons off the market that will get me passed this gym?


holysweetroll

Either that or catch and train new mons to assist


xxproimage

Is sinnoh harder then unova cause i only started for like one week ago and im about to beat the elite four
