Paras’ Challenge

Paras faces a level 70 Togetic in this Path of Solitude challenge.

Togetic is a Fairy/Flying-type Pokémon. Due to this, Togetic has a weakness to Electric, Ice, Poison, Rock, and Steel-type attacks. Additionally, it has completely immune to Ground and Dragon-type attacks. Fortunately, Paras can learn super-effective attacks to use against Togetic.

Recommendations & Advantages

For this challenge, it will be important to learn the super-effective move Venoshock to use against Togetic. Venoshock, a poison-type move, can be learned at level 15 and mastered at level 25.

Additionally, It is also recommended to use Poison Powder at the beginning of the battle. This move will apply the poison status effect, dealing damage to Togetic after every attack. As Togetic is level 70 in this challenge, moves should be fully mastered and ready to use in battle.

Other recommendations include:

  • Level up Paras to at least Level 70 in order to either match or outlevel Togetic.
    • Unless you are looking for a challenge, you should at least match your opponent’s level.
  • Increase of Effort Values (EVs) for Speed.
    • Leveling speed ensures Paras can attack quickly.
    • 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.
