Akala Island Totem Pokemon Encounter – Araquanid Lv. 20

  • Welcome to the main event of the Akala Island walkthrough! When the battle starts, Araquanid will gain a stage 1 speed boost. If you attack the Araquanid with an electric attack, it’ll eat the Wacan Berry to lower the incoming damage.
  • If you have Rockruff, it should have Thunder Fang to deal heavy damage. This should also be easy if you picked Rowlet as your starter pokemon.
  • Araquanid will also send out SOS calls, calling a Dewpider to aid it during battle.
  • Watch out for your health and keep dishing out super effective attacks to defeat Araquanid. After that, you’ll have finished the first Totem Trial for Akala Island.
  • Lana will then call you back to her and she’ll give you the Waterium Z, a fishing rod, and 10 Dive Balls.
