Shaymin’s Path of Solitude

Shaymin’s Path of Solitude

This Path of Solitude challenge for Shaymin is against a Level 80 Magnezone.

Magnezone is a Electric/Steel-type Pokémon. It is weak against Ground, Fire, and Fighting-type attacks. Luckily for Shaymin, it will know the Ground-type move Earth Power when it is obtained.

Recommendations & Advantages

To successfully complete this challenge, it is recommended to learn the move Earth Power and utilize Strong and Agile-styles during battle.

Magnezone will not use any moves that are super-effective against Shaymin in this battle, making it one of the easier challenges. It is still recommended to max the Effort Value for Speed to ensure Shaymin gets attacks in quickly.

Other recommendations include:

  • Level up to Level 70 or above to out-level the opposing Pokémon.
    • This is recommended if Shaymin struggles against its opponent despite other suggestions.
  • Increase of Effort Values (EVs) for Speed.
    • Shaymin with an increased speed will allow it to repeatedly attack.
    • 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.
    • Mastered moves 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.
