Gym Challenge Strategy


Pokemon Sword and Shield - Gym Leader Kabu

In Kabu’s gym challenge, you don’t have to take on gym trainers in standard battles. To advance to the gym leader battle, the goal is to search for Pokemon in the tall grass and either catch them or make them faint. You can look around to find which spot has an active wild Pokemon and approach it for an encounter. The Pokemon are fire types and can be defeated with water, rock, or ground type attacks. Among the three starters, a well trained Drizzile can dispatch the wild Pokemon for a quick point. Repeat this process and you’ll be up against Kabu in no time at all. When facing Kabu’s pokemon, save your dynamaxed water, rock, or ground type for when he sends out Centiskorch.
