Tentacool’s Path of Solitude

Tentacool’s Opponent

Tentacool’s Path of Solitude challenge is against a level 70 Drifloon.

Drifloon is a Ghost/Flying-type Pokémon. This makes it weak against Electric, Ice, Rock, Ghost, and Dark-type attacks. It is completely immune to Fighting, Normal, and Ground-type attacks. Fortunately for Tentacool, it can learn the Ghost-type move Hex through leveling.

Recommendations & Advantages

To successfully complete this challenge, it is recommended to use the move Hex. Maxing out the Effort Values for Speed and Special Defense will also be needed.

Other recommendations include:

  • Level up Tentacool to Level 70 or above.
    • This is recommended if Tentacool struggles against its opponent despite other suggestions.
  • Increase of Effort Values (EVs) for Speed, Special Defense, and Special Attack.
    • Slight increase to HP is also beneficial.
    • Increasing Speed ensures Tentacool can attack first at the beginning of the battle and will not be one-hit KO’d.
    • Increasing Special Attack can allow Tentacool to attack for more damage.
    • Increasing Special Defense will keep Tentacool with enough HP to survive an attack or two.
    • 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.
