Strategies to Defeat Mallow
To counter the Trial Captain who specializes in Grass-Types, assign at least one Fire or Flying-Type. If you’re not fond of the above mentioned types, Poison-Types such as Muk (Alola) can also occupy a slot as not only do these resist Grass but also Fairy-Types. As a matter of fact, the latter types can even launch powerful damage to both of those opposing types, making them advantageous for this battle.
Although Mallow serves as the Grass-type specialist, she might carry some exceptions such as Talonflame. Therefore it is recommended to have a Pokemon with the Rock-Type move such as Rock Blast as it can deal four times the amount of damage to Mallow’s Talonflame while resisting both its flying and fire-type attacks.
Ninetales (Alola) with the hidden ability can summon hail upon a safe switch-in and could deal chip damage to Talonflame, removing the effects of its Focus Sash. It is also capable of launching a powerful STAB Blizzard during a hailstorm which can take out most of Mallow’s Grass-Type Pokemon and does a decent amount of damage to Talonflame thanks to its part flying typing.
Mallow is severely underrated in the BT. If you build a specific team around her Pokémon, then you’re in for some fun!
