Kricketot’s Path of Solitude

Kricketot’s Opponent

Kricketot’s Path of Solitude challenge is against a level 60 Gyarados.

Gyarados is a water/flying-type Pokémon. This makes it weak against Electric and Rock-type attacks. Unfortunately for Kricketot, it is limited to two moves – Tackle and Absorb. Kricketot cannot learn any other moves, even from Zisu.

Recommendations & Advantages

To successfully complete this challenge, it is recommended over-level Kricketot to level 85 or higher. Using a mixture of agile-style and normal-style Absorb attacks will keep Kricketot with enough HP to finish the battle. Increasing most Effort Values is may be needed as well.

Other recommendations include:

  • Level up Kricketot to Level 85 or above to out-level the opposing Pokémon.
    • Gyrados is impossible to defeat at a comparable level.
  • Increase of Effort Values (EVs) for Speed, HP, Special Defense, and Special Attack.
    • Increasing speed will ensure Gyrados does not attack more than 3 times in a row during battle.
    • Increasing Special Attack can allow Kricketot to attack for more damage with the move Absorb. This will also heal Kricketot for more health.
    • HP and Special Defense will keep Kricketot with enough HP to finish the battle. Twister will deal less damage with a higher special defense.
    • Effort Values can be upgraded using the Grit items. You can get these items by defeating wild Pokémon, releasing captured Pokémon, and other activities.
    • Effort Values significantly increase stats when reaching an EV level of 1, 4, 7, and 10.
  • Change Kricketot’s nature.
    • Boosting either Speed or Special Attack will ensure this battle goes smoothly.
    • If Kricketot has a nature that decreases Special Defense, Special Attack, or HP, it is recommended to change it.
