Rowlet’s Path of Solitude

Rowlet’s Opponent

Rowlet’s Path of Solitude challenge is against a level 84 Cyndaquil.

Cyndaquil is a pure Fire-type Pokémon. This makes it weak against Water, Rock, and Ground-type attacks. Unfortunately for Rowlet, it can not learn any super-effective attacks against Cyndaquil. Even worse, Cyndaquil has all of its Effort Values (EVs) maxed out, making this Pokémon always attack first.

Recommendations & Advantages

To successfully complete this challenge, it is recommended to learn the move Air Slash or another high-damage move from Zisu. Air Slash should allow Rowlet to attack twice after Cyndaquil’s initial attack. Mastering the move will also be beneficial so Rowlet can attack with a normal-style Air Slash followed by a strong-style attack.

Other recommendations include:

  • Level up Rowlet to Level 90 or above to out-level the opposing Pokémon.
    • Cyndaquil may as well be impossible to beat if Rowlet is only level 84.
    • Leveling beyond level 90 may give Rowlet a first-attack advantage.
  • Increase of Effort Values (EVs) for Speed, HP, Special Attack, and Special Defense will be required.
    • Cyndaquil can one-hit KO Rowlet without increased HP and Special Defense.
    • Increasing Special Attack & Speed can allow for Rowlet to attack twice in a row with Air Slash.
    • 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.
