Vespiquen’s Challenge

Vespiquen faces a level 70 Kleavor in this Path of Solitude challenge.

Kleavor is a Bug/Rock-type Pokémon. Due to this, Kleavor has a weakness to Water, Rock, and Steel-type attacks. Additionally, it has some resistance against Normal and Poison-type attacks. Fortunately, Vespiquen can learn super-effective attacks to use against Kleavor.

Recommendations & Advantages

For this challenge, it will be important to learn the super-effective move Powder Gem to use against Kleavor. Powder Gem, a Rock-type move, is very powerful against Kleavor and can knock it out in either one or two hits. As Kleavor is level 70 in this challenge, moves should be fully mastered and ready to use in battle.

Furthermore, Vespiquen may need to endure at least one attack from Kleavor. Increasing Vespiquen’s speed Effort Values to ensure it can attack first would be beneficial. If this is not possible however, increasing Effort Values for HP and Defense will be needed.

Other recommendations include:

  • Level up Vespiquen to at least Level 70 in order to either match or outlevel Kleavor.
    • 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 Vespiquen 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.
