Magneton’s Path of Solitude

Magneton’s Opponent

Magneton’s Path of Solitude challenge is against a level 60 Ninetales.

Ninetales is a pure Fire-type Pokémon. This makes it weak against Water, Rock, and Ground-type attacks. Unfortunately for Magneton, it cannot learn any super-effective moves against Ninetales. Ninetales will use fire-type attacks against Magenton, making this a somewhat difficult battle.

Recommendations & Advantages

To successfully complete this challenge, it is recommended to learn the move Tri Attack and to master it. Tri Attack will allow Magneton to attack with considerable damage and apply a status effect to Ninetales. If Paralysis is applied via this attack, the challenge will be much easier. Mastering the move will also be beneficial so Magneton can attack with the different styles.

Other recommendations include:

  • Level up Magneton to Level 60 or above to out-level the opposing Pokémon.
    • This is recommended if Magneton struggles against its opponent despite other suggestions.
  • Increase of Effort Values (EVs) for Speed.
    • Leveling speed ensures Magneton can attack at the beginning of the battle.
    • Increasing Special Attack can allow Magneton to attack for more damage.
    • 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.
