Stantler’s Path of Solitude

Stantler’s Opponent

Stantler’s Path of Solitude challenge is against a level 70 Drapion.

Drapion is a Poison/Dark-type Pokémon. This makes it weak against Ground-type attacks only. Additionally, Drapion is completely immune to Psychic-type attacks, which Stantler knows a few of. Fortunately for Stantler, it can learn the super-effective move Bulldoze from Zisu.

Recommendations & Advantages

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

Other recommendations include:

  • Level up Stantler to Level 70 or above to out-level the opposing Pokémon.
    • This is recommended if Stantler struggles against its opponent despite other suggestions.
  • Increase of Effort Values (EVs) for Speed and HP.
    • Stantler 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.
    • A mastered Bulldoze 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.
