7 Take your party to the Pokemon center one more time.

Gym Challenge Strategy

Pokemon Sword and Shield - Gym Leader Opal

The Ballonlea challenge tests both your mental acuity and Pokemon skills. Every few turns, your foe will interrupt you with a thought-provoking question. Choose the right answer and you’ll get a buff. However, choosing the wrong answer punishes you with a debuff. Avoid getting stumped by the questions to keep your Pokemon fighting fit. The gym trainers are all weak to steel and poison types, so if you have one of those types they should go down after a few hits. Opal, on the other hand, has some tricks up her sleeve, so you need to think hard before you finalize your answer. If you raised all kinds of types that are effective against Fairy type, you’re in luck. While Steel types could suffice, having raised high level Poison types and Fire types to complement the steel Pokemon makes defeating her a breeze.
