Tornadus’ Path of Solitude

Tornadus’s Opponent

This Path of Solitude challenge for Tornadus is against a Level 84 Rotom.

The Frost Rotom is an Electric/Ice type Pokémon, making it weak against Fire, Fighting, Ground, and Rock-type attacks. Luckily for Tornadus, it can learn a super-effective move from Zisu.

Recommendations & Advantages

To easily win, Tornadus will need to have a high level, preferably at or above level 84. It will also need a high amount of speed. Learning the Fighting-type attack Rock Smash from Zisu and mastering the move will be helpful to win.

Other recommendations include:

  • Level up Tornadus to Level 84 or above.
    • This is recommended if it struggles against its opponent despite other suggestions.
  • Increase of Effort Values (EVs) for Speed and Attack.
    • A high speed can ensure Tornadus attacking quickly.
    • Increasing Attack ensures Rock Smash can do a good amount of damage to Rotom.
    • 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 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.
