Totem Pokémon「Kommo-o」 Lv.45

[Battle Tip]

The Totem Pokemon’s Defense, Sp.Atk and Sp.Def  are increased by one stage. It can also call Hakamo-o for help. Since it will have lower Defense when it uses Clanging Scales, it will be good to use Physical attacks against it. The best strategy would be to attack it with Fairy-type moves since it will be taking 4x damage.

Type Dragon/Fighting
Move Call for Family
Clanging Scales / Protect
Flash Cannon /
  1. After defeating the Totem Pokemon, you will obtain the Dragonium Z Crystal.
