Kricketune’s Path of Solitude

Kricketune’s Opponent

This Path of Solitude challenge pits Kricketune against a level 70 Chatot.

For Kricketune’s foe, Chatot falls into the Normal/Flying category. As a result, Chatot is weak to Electric, Ice, and Rock-type attacks only. Furthermore, it is completely immune to both Ghost-type and Ground-type attacks. Unfortunately for Kricketune, there are no super-effective moves it can learn against Chatot.

Recommendations & Advantages

Obtaining and mastering Hyper Beam from Zisu is recommended in order to successfully complete this challenge. A lower damage move is also necessary to prevent Chatot from KOing you with a combo.

Other recommendations include:

  • Level up Kricketune to Level 70 or above to ether match or out-level Chatot.
    • This is recommended if Kricketune struggles against its opponent despite other suggestions.
  • Increase of Effort Values (EVs) for Speed and Special Attack.
    • Leveling speed ensures Kricketune can attack quickly.
    • Increasing Special Attack can allow Kricketune to attack for more damage with Hyper Beam.
    • With Grit items, you can upgrade your Effort Values. A variety of activities can be carried out in order to obtain these items, such as defeating wild Pokémon and releasing captured Pokémon.
    • Effort Values significantly increase stats when reaching an EV level of 1, 4, 7, and 10.
  • Master the moves learned from Zisu.
    • A mastered move can be used in both Agile-style and Strong-style.
    • Mastered moves will allow for repeat attacks without the opponent being able to get damage in.
