Since you’ll be fighting Morimoto in the post-game, you’ll have enough time to form a solid team. The Pokemon you used in your matches against Raihan give you a favorable matchup. Types like fighting and fairy are welcome in this battle since the pair can take on four out of Miyamoto’s six.

  • Dark: Thievul, Grimmsnarl, Obstagoon, Umbreon, Sableye, Hydreigon, Weavile, Bisharp, Scrafty, Liepard, Pangoro
  • Fairy: Gardevoir, Hatterene, Sylveon, Grimmsnarl, Clefable, Mimikyu, Mr. Mime, Togekiss, Mawile, Alcremie, Slurpuff, Aromatisse, Shiinotic
  • Fighting: Cinderace, Hawlucha, Sirfetch’d, Falinks, Conkeldurr, Machamp, Hitmonlee, Hitmonchan, Hitmontop, Pangoro, Gallarde, Bewear, Scrafty, Throh, Sawk, Lucario
  • Steel: Corviknight, Steelix, Copperajah, Klinklang, Perrserker, Ferrothorn, Excadrill, Bronzong, Escavalier, Lucario, Aegislash, Togedemaru
  • Water: Inteleon, Drednaw, Gyarados, Vaporeon, Lapras, Seismitoad, Grapploct, Golisopod, Cursula, Cramorant, Toxapex

Game Freak Morimoto Circhester Pokemon Battle

  • Stonjourner (Lv.65), Dragapult (Lv.65), Cursola (Lv.65), Grapploct (Lv.65), Coalossal (Lv.65), and Snorlax (Lv.65)

Similar to Raihan’s gym challenge, the format is a double battle. Miyamoto’s team consists of Pokemon with loads of health. By now, you should have a well-balanced team around the same level or better than his Pokemon. Great types to use against his team are fighting, fairy, steel, and water. Lead with one fighting and one fairy type to cover your bases. You can even add a dark type into the mix to deal with his ghost types. If you have a strong Pangoro, that can work wonders against the majority of his team by itself. If you chose Inteleon as a starter, you can use it to deal with Stonjourner and Coalossal. When he’s down to his final Pokemon, he’ll use a max move on Snorlax. Use this chance to send out your strongest fighting type Pokemon and use a Max Knuckle to topple it off.

    • Hi MP2!

      Indeed, Cinderace is not a fighting type but the pokemon has usable a fighting type move effective for this battle. That’s the reason why we placed him under that category. ????

      • Similarly to that Rillaboom could be used as a Dark type, since Darkest Lariat is a pretty reliable dark type move, though I could be wrong.
