Samurott’s Path of Solitude

Samurott’s Opponent

Samurott’s Path of Solitude challenge is against a level 70 Decidueye.

Decidueye is a Grass/Fighting-type Pokémon. It is weak against Fire, Ice, Poison, Flying, Psychic, and Fairy-type attacks. Fortunately for Samurott, it can learn a super-effective move against Decidueye.

Recommendations & Advantages

To successfully complete this challenge, it is recommended to learn the move Aerial Ace from Zisu and master it. Decidueye is x4 weak against flying-type attacks, so this should be a fairly easy battle.

Other recommendations include:

  • Level up Samurott to Level 70 or above to either match or out-level Decidueye.
    • This is recommended if Samurott struggles against its opponent despite other suggestions.
  • Increase of Effort Values (EVs) for Speed.
    • Leveling speed ensures Samurott can attack quickly.
    • 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.
  • 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.
