Gym Challenge Strategy

Pokemon Sword and Shield - Gym Leader Raihan

The Hammerlocke Gym challenge is the eighth and final test. Bring a stash of super or hyper potions and give your Pokemon held items to boost their attacks. Unlike the other challenges, you are asked to send out two Pokemon at a time. Also worth noting is that the gym consists of teams that rely on weather control. To get started, assemble two Pokemon that cover each other’s weaknesses at the top of the list. One fairy and one fighting type Pokemon have great synergy since they can take on the majority of foes. For example, you can opt to have Sylveon, a fairy type, alongside Conkeldurr. Gym trainers come one after another, so don’t be afraid of swapping out your pokemon when you run into a bad type matchup. Steel types such as Corviknight are also great for soaking the damage aimed at fairy types and resist flying types that fighting are weak against.

After defeating a sequence of trainers, you’ll face off against Raihan. His team consists of a ground and dragon type, a rock type, a ground type, and a steel and dragon type. What’s common among these Pokemon is that they are all immune to the damage done by sandstorm. Fortunately, two of each share a weakness, namely ice and fighting. One can also be struck with fairy or dragon. Use a combination of those moves and save your dynamax for the last Pokemon he sends out.
